Transformers Prime Voyager Dreadwing and Skyquake are the latest inductees into the Seibertron.com galleries. These two characters are split-spark twins so they share the same mold. Skyquake was the first to appear in the Transformers Prime cartoon followed by Dreadwing, however Dreadwing came first in toy form with Skyquake being in the last wave of the Transformers Prime: Robots in Disguise Voyager assortment.

These two look great flanking Megatron.

If I ever man up and open my Skyquake and free him from his packaged prison, this is exactly how I'll display them.

Wish I had Skyquake. That shot of all the Prime Decepticons together looks to be in amazingly good scale.

It's like beating a dead horse but I swear that I still can't get over the fact that the Commander Class versions look sleeker in jet mode than the Voyager class version. Plus both are rather unable to hide the 'bot mode hands in jet mode....

love this two figures and as a group shot the cast looks amazing (although i'd sneak in a wheeljack to make up for makeshift)

Such a shame that these two never to shine together on screen and in particular skyquake was killed far too easily so we never got to know him.

I didn't kill myself looking, but even in Miami I never saw a Skyquake. I did see his wave mate once in Target (that blue lion thing) Here's hoping they arrive in crates at TJ Maxx and Marshalls like Animated Wreck Gar did...

Skyquake has apparently been showing up in the past few weeks at Toys R Us stores.

I actually saw Skyquake the other day. Passed on it because I don't care that much for the Dreadwing mold

I really want Skyquake. Alas, being a figure near the end of the PRiD line, chances are good I'll never see him at retail.

Kinda funny how the world works when somebody that doesn't care for it finds a HTF figure while there are lots of others who would kill for the figure probably would never see it.

They have been found by lucky hunters recently at TRU but at 1 per case they disappear quick.

We here at Seibertron.com hope that you're enjoying the galleries we provide. One of our recent galleries included Prime Voyagers Dreadwing and his late, great brother... Skyquake!

Well, the very rare and hard to find figure is apparently making his way into brick & mortar Toys R Us stores, with various multistate sightings across the country.

TRU.com infrequently has him available as well, here at this link: http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.js ... d=22130216
As of this time (3:08 AM EST) his listing has been pulled, but it is an active item they carry and it could go back up, with the figure in stock and ready to ship, at any time.

Care to revisit the gallery? You can do so, right here: Image

Can't wait to buy? Ready to mash that button when it becomes available? Well, until then, feel free to join the discussion and give us your thoughts.

Keep your optics tuned to Seibertron.com for the latest in news and updates, and the best galleries around!

He's one of the final four PRiD figures I require. I'd really rather be done hunting these guys so I can shift my spending priorities to more recent releases. This may be the ticket.

I was happy to be able to get my hands on the only one that was on the shelf at my local TRU. Been looking for one for some time now to go with my Dreadwing. :BOT:

I found one (a few, actually) at my local TRU, but I was not willing to pay $30 for a Voyager.

You neglected to mention that they've been price-jacked to about $30 each. I was annoyed when I got mine for that price but I sucked it up because it was the only Skyquake I'd ever seen, and at one to a case, with him being a desirable figure, my odds of another sighting weren't great.

Really wish the nearest TRU to me wasn't in the next town over. :-(

Yeah, unfortunately you're forced to pay an extra $8-10 for that stupid MechTech weapon - a waste of plastic and electronics.

TRU jacked their prices again voyagers are now $30, they were $22 a week or two ago. No voyager is worth that. Why cant target get some voyagers in, they still charge $20.

Actually, only the RID Voyagers are $30. The Beast Hunters Voyagers are all $19.99. I find it hard to figure out why they jack the price up on older merchandise. I was at two TRUs today, and not only do they have several pegs of DOTM Deluxes (STILL), but they were $15.99 each, as was GDO Deluxe Swerve. Who's gonna buy them at this point, especially when the newer toys (BH Deluxes and even RID Deluxes) were only $12.99? I don't understand TRU's strategy on that. You'd think they'd discount the older toys, get them moving.

The pricing scheme at TRU has defied logic for quite some time. Remember when they'd mark down Armada/Energon Unicron & Cybertron super Starscream half-price? Now they'd rather let old merchandise wither on the shelves than mark them down to clear them out.

Goodness, gracious, GREAT BALLS OF FIRE! I FOUND SKYQUAKE!!!!!!!!!

Walked into TRU this afternoon not expecting to find anything. Noticed that the TF section of the toy aisle had finally gotten the later wave PRID toys (this TRU had previously been notorious for having mostly just Bumblebees, Cliffjumpers, Wheeljacks, and little else, but they were usually good with the Voyagers), which were right next to the Prime Beast Hunters toys, so I took a look at what they had.

Looking at the Voyagers, I saw three PRID ones: Thundertron, Ultra Magnus, and Optimus Prime... the same three that Voyager Skyquake was said to have shipped with. Sadly, though, the Skyquake that had likely come with these three looked to be already long gone.

...Or so I thought! Just as I was about to walk away with my head slumped in disappointment, I noticed a particularly large amount of unsold Cyberverse Optimus Maximus toys that were just sitting there shelfwarming like normal. Then I thought, "You know, it's possible that there could be more stuff behind those things. Wouldn't hurt to take a peak." So, thanks to curiosity getting the best of me, I pulled out on of those "Obnoxious Maximus" sets off the shelf and looked to see what lay beyond in the back of the shelf.

There were some more Optimus Maximus toys, some unsold DOTM sets, a Generations Voyager Blitzwing someone had likely stashed away to purchase at a later time (even though there was already another Blitzwing, as well as a Springer, out in the open two shelves up -- I already got these two previously, so I didn't bother with them), and... something green stashed even further towards the back.

It caught my eye. I recognized the packaging as a PRID Voyager box. It wasn't Bulkhead, it was SKYQUAKE!!!!! :mrgreen:

Like the Blitzwing, someone must have hidden it behind all the "Shelfwarmus Maximus" to pay for later. My conscience considered this, but then I thought "It's SKYQUAKE!!! I've been the victim of scalpers too often in the past! Time for me to play the 'first come, first serve' game!" ;)

He is mine and he is gorgeous! His paint apps are even better than Dreadwing's, and he's even got MORE paint than his brother!

And with how hard he is to find, I'm thinking of keeping him stored in his packaging. I'm gonna open it to play with, but when not playing with him, he'll go back into his box, just like I do for my other special figures. I'm gonna preserve and maintain this bad boy, as he is the last PRID toy I was looking to get and now he is mine. :D
