    Jeff Kline said that when they kill somebody they will make it ultra obvious that they died, so maybe he survived.

    Well thats not quite what he said was it? I thought he just said - when we kill someone they are dead - meaning they won't be coming back and doing that over and over.

    The actual wording was "We wanted to very clearly in the miniseries and now in episode six, unlike some other iterations of Transformers or just animation in general, [to make] sure that you knew he wasn’t just dead but dead dead… dead, dead, dead, dead. Cut up into pieces dead."

    So there may be hope for Skyquake still

    I was talking about this line.

    "In our minds, when we kill a character, we kill a character"


    I interpret that as saying there wont be all these rising from the dead characters like people keep speculating about

    Yea I was kind of enjoying the episode but bumping off Skyquake just knocked all the red off of that apple. It felt like the character had a lot of potential and might mix the story up a little but all those hopes were kind of bumped off.

    Maybe I'm paranoid but I hope the death of Skyquake doesn't mean that every time a new character is introduced they die in the same episode.

    No idea why they killed Skyquake too,

    They kept saying that CGI is expensive, they got a whole drone army to kill and nearly no Decepticon characters... killing is just lame in this situation and makes no sense,.

    That really was surprising. First new Decepticon, and they don't even show Soundwave hauling him back to the medbay? The hell?

    I don't think he's dead. The creator's made this huge point of saying Cliffjumper's dead saying how they made sure he's dead-dead and chopping him into pieces and blowing him up and Skyquake just crash-lands.

    His jet mode is the only TF Prime character that had robot kibble visible in alt mode. (ammusingly it's also the only vehicle mdoe re-used as a real vehicle, complete with joints and extra stuff underneath) I'd say they at least considered it.

    I'm pretty sure we haven't seen the last of Skyquake. They didn't actually confirm his death or anything.

    With the Decepticons being so short on characters it does seem a little odd to just kill the first chance at expanding the number of Decepticon characters and putting the Autobots in an even worse spot.

    Don't get me wrong so far I'm loving Megatron, Starscream, Soundwave, and the troopers, but it feels like the Decepticon needs a bigger mix of characters to take advantage of how bad guys don't always get along.

    I was digging the freaking crap out of that chain gun action. I will be sad if he gets a toy but does not have said chain gun.

    As for bumping him off, I really liked his design. We need more cons that are going to stick around, but we never know what the writers have planned. His voice was amazing too. :[

    I'd like to say that Skyquake is probably not dead, but honestly I wouldn't be too surprised if he in fact is.
    The battle really just ended with Skyquake being taken down, and that was that. There didn't really seem to be a cliffhanger of any kind that suggested he was still alive.

    I would say you're being paranoid, but after the episode I just watched, I'd be lieing if I said I didn't have a bad feeling.
