Got Skyquake today. First experience with the mold. Mine has both feet, but they were on the wrong legs. Easy to fix.
This mold was well worth the wait. feels and looks solid, really nice posability, and a very imposing look. Transformation is incredibly complicated compared to the rest of the voyagers in the line. Chunky jet mode doesn't bug me too much, but after transforming him back to robot mode, I really don't have any desire to ever transform him back into the jet mode.
Here's a list of stuff I'm looking for!

Got mine last week, 1st and only one I found. Unfortunately I think mine has 2 left feet. Not sure. I looked close and if mine indeed has 2 left feet, whatever, it's only a few mm difference to reach the surface and mine was screwed in misaligned I think, so it is *almost* fixed.All things TOKUsatsu!
Anyways I got this guy because I like Skyquake, thought it would be a shame that his brother would be alone in my collection. Bot mode is great, love the sculpt, jet mode, same issues as Dreadwing. This isn't movie-1 Starscream bad but it's a chunker. Nonetheless, I like the jet mode from the top, from the sides it looks a lot fatter than it ought to be. Still, I've grown to accept it.
HOWEVER, like Dreadwing, I HATE THE VERTICAL STABILIZERS. Okay, so parts like the canards, radome, et al, had to be cast in soft plastic, I get that, and maybe the vertical stabilizers were on the same sprue as those parts(same color). Why in the hell did Hasbro not mold these parts on Skyquake and Dreadwing using the same plastic used for deluxe Soundwave's soft parts? Soundwave's soft parts(vertical stabilizers) are much firmer! It kills a lot of the enjoyment in jet mode for me unfortunately.
Right hand had a stress mark, not too worried though. You can somewhat have the gun held underhand by attaching the sword to it, turn it upside down and have Dreadwing hold the handle of the sword. Weird but..oh well.
I removed the light-box from the gun. Now it looks better. I also have the gun permanently in extended position, I hooked the spring onto a peg while stretching it out before reassembling the gun.
The head on mine is still soft, firmer than Dreadwing's but still notably soft. Hasbro really ought to have had the eyebrows or crest or whatever as a separate piece, like the "V-fins" on Gundams(Bandai usually sculpts those separate, usually has 2 included, 1 soft, 1 hard).
It's a shame this repaint was saved for the very last RiD wave. The jet mode looks better than Dreadwing's because of the additional paint, the silver trim on the canopy makes it pop out a lot more.
