With Transformers Prime Beast Hunters taking the reins of the main Transformers line at retail, let us take a look at the last of the Voyager class toys – one who is perhaps doomed to suffer from what I’d like to call “end of line scarcity syndrome”. I am talking about Transformers Prime Voyager Skyquake.

Those following the show will know a bit about Skyquake – he was a one-episode character who died in the same story that introduced him, and his death set up the character arc for his twin Dreadwing (and okay, yeah, he later came back as a zombie for another one episode appearance). Dreadwing was released in the third assortment of Voyager class toys and like on the show Skyquake recolors the mold wholesale, swapping Dreadwing’s navy blue and yellow-gold for a more militaristic scheme of olive green and silver, with some red highlights. He of course gets the remolded gun, the weapon redesigned to look more like Skyquake’s gatling gun weapon as opposed to Dreadwing’s beam cannon.

Being a redeco of Dreadwing with a partially remolded accessory, Skyquake shares all of Dreadwing’s virtues and most of his weaknesses. The legs still lack a bit of weight making balancing a little harder than it ought to be, and the weapon can’t be held slung under his arms like on the show. But the head feels a bit sturdier than the extremely rubbery head on Dreadwing, so my main issue with Dreadwing has been fixed. Overall, Skyquake is a good redeco; while it is a pity he is an end of line release, as a one episode character, it does make sense to get the rest of the characters out there first.

    Ditto I shipped mine out last week, he's a beaut but was hoping to find an extra out in retail to open. Although glad I did get the case of him even though the other 3 are saturated out here.

    BBTS was sold out when I checked
    My wife is in the Philippines right now visiting family. I asked her to go to Toy Kingdom to see if they had any. She saw 4 of them. She did not know if I wanted to pay around 35-37 Dollars Canadian for it and waited to the next day when they only had 1.
    She got me that one thank goodness.
    I checked Ebay People from the Philippines are selling them for a high price.

    I too believe this will suffer from end of line syndrome. I lucked on a very quick restock from TFSource thanks to The Dark Seeker mentioning it in another thread.

    Good luck to everyone that wants to get this amazing recolour.


    And Sol, you forgot to mention that Skyquake's zombie form did make a second appearance in the Prime series. lol

    Did they fix the back of the jet where there are the 2 hands sticking out?

    both very nice figures (DW and SQ) otherwise.
