The highly anticipated Transformers Prime Voyager Class Skyquake has made his initial retail appearance in the Philippines. Skyqauke is the last figure scheduled to release in the Transformers Prime "Robots in Disguise" line as part of the Voyager Wave 4 revision, and as we all know that can lead to sparse distribution. Let's keep our fingers crossed that isn't the case with this guy. Sighting and images below courtesy of deviantART user BoggeyDan.

This is great news! I was really beginning to think Skyquake would be cancelled, especially since it's been so long since we've heard anything about his release. I guess he'll start popping up in the states in the next 3-6 weeks. I'm very excited to get him to add to my TFP collection along side his brother! :D

Pretty sure he is in my area...keep finding thundertron and magnus but skyquake seems to vanish as it hits the shelf, if it ever makes it to the shelf.

If you ever find him, you'd be the first U.S sighting. ;)

Thundertron and Magnus came out with STarscream and Op, I think. The last revision replaces Starscream with Skyquake. If you see a Starscream around, i tmight be the current wave instead of Skyquake's.

No way to say for sure, but I'd be willing to bet your just seeing the initial release of Wave 4. Skyquake gets added in the wave revision.

Hopefully he'll make it to U.S. stores eventually.

One of the few TF Prime figures I want. I dont collect the line, but this mold is just so cool. I also feel with a new head, it could be Jihaxus.

In orange, a retool would make a great Jhiaxus homage:

TFU.info doesn't permit hotlinking.

Plus, I think he meant this Jhiaxus:

That too, but I meant this Jhiaxus:



It wouldn't make a difference. The mold is good enough for both.

I meant the Jihaxus in the TFCC magazine comics. He is mostly green with some orange.

im probably alone on this but i thought his green was closer to puke green
and with his current colors they kinda hinder his likeness to his on screen appearances. didnt he have more white and a(slightly) lighter red?
that matte finish though is grade A. looks perfect in that regard.

I want him... :(

I might be willing to make do with Dreadwing, but I'd much prefer this one.
So far, have seen nothing more than OP and Megatron in the UK.

Granted, he was in a canyon surrounded by lots of brown and tan sand that could have very well been throwing off the lighting of his color scheme with a heavy brownish tint, making his colors look lighter than they are here. Though, this image of him from Hasbro.com looks closer to these colors:

now i think the grey is fine being that they probably wouldnt make it silver at all, however the green should be puke green and bit faded and the red darker. Am i nitpicking, probably.
The toy to me just doesnt look right for some reason. the colors look a bit wrong and un-enjoyable. maybe its the additional scratches the CGI model has that would be almost impossible to replicate onto the toy. i know mass produced figures have this but most dont feel like they are hindered by this as much as Skyquake is. i just cant get behind this figure when i already have dreadwing.

thanks for the Pic though! and no im not trying to ruin the fig or be b**ch im just stating why i dont like the fig.

Maybe this toy could be how Skyquake looked before he went into stasis, fresh off the assembly line with a deep, rich green color scheme, only for it decay and fade over time with age into the more puke green color he later got. ;)
