    Fellow UK board member Sinestro has just sent me a text message saying he just found Skyquake at his local TRU in Bristol. Pic attached.

    This ties in with previous reports in the UK Toy Discussion thread from we_are_forest and others that Skyquake is out there in the wild.

    Happy hunting, UK brothers!!!

    yay! Was wondering how to get him. I was holding out hope with the Beast Hunters line released later over here. Surprised at we_are_forest, if it is notts TRU, last time i went it was full of previous wave voyagers.

    Obviously, all of America's Skyquakes must have been sent to the UK instead. /: )

    Did Skyquake hit US shelves? I know he didn't come to Canada and I had to buy him at TFSource (got lucky with a restock cuz this guy is sold out everywhere)

    To all you UK Prime fans, happy hunting and good luck! Any Prime collection needs this guy in it. Great figure AMAZING colours.

    Anyone think this thing could be the next Energon Ultra Magnus? Incredibly hard to find in the US, but somehow plentiful in the UK?

    They had 3 in when I was there last night. It was an hour before closing and they were putting new stock out throughout the store so they must have only got them in.

    The one I found first of all was in a box on the floor along with a box marked 'TFA Prime Deluxe W5, then (I think) A6'. Is that the Rumble/Dead End/Kupp wave?

    Anyway, there were also 2 Skyquake's on the end display. I thought I'd check the fixture in case it wasn't a one off.

    Managed to nab the only Skyquake at Edinburgh TRU. Like others have mentioned, he's in US packaging.

    Glad he's been released as I almost bit the bullet on a £45 one on EBay.

    Glad the blokes across the pond get a chance at this figure. I Still need to score a second to open as I have a issue with opening my original purchase.
