    Oh my god, I love that green color. What is it? I NEED that for a "when I get around to it" bash.

    (note that Skyquake's original color is way more... blue than that. It's almost a turquoise or teal.)

    if I reallllllllly want to nitpick this thing (I know you're always looking for whether you'd want to change anything or not before you finish a bash), I honestly only come up with one thing. The maroon parts, they're so clearly just unpainted pieces, especially the tail parts and the upper chest. The feet aren't as obvious, but if you were to change those areas, you'd want to change that spot on the top of the feet, too.

    I think there's too much silver, the original had Bronze instead of silver colouring. other than that I can't see much wrong with it (though for me the mould doesn't scream Skyquake)

    the colours aren't actually so painful in person though the layout of the colours from the original would probably be able to get placed better on Universe Silverbolt.

    looks real good, what size is that starscream? the supreme class one would make a great skyquake as it would be in scale with the origonal.

    only thing I would do different is maybe a head swap.
