    Edit: Adding bios to help the discussion.

    Brushguard:
    One of many scientists working for MEGATRON, BRUSHGUARD has dedicated his life to xenobotany - the study of alien plant life. A firm believer in DECEPTICON supremacy, he hopes to find unique toxins in Earth plants for use against the AUTOBOTS and their human allies. Though he dislikes violence, he has been retrofitted to fire short-range bursts of superheated acid from his chest.

    Landquake:
    While his brother (landmine) is happiest battling Decepticons, he prefers to help the Omnicons mine Energon, using his tremendous strength to crack open Energon deposits. While he dislikes fighting, he will not shirk a call to battle, using the same strength he uses to crack open seams to break Decepticon heads.

    Woah! GOOD EYE! I would have never noticed that!

    Hmm...I'd imagine it'd have to do with Arctic traveling vehicles due to their colors and vehicle types...Then again, it could just be a re-used decal.

    This would be a really good question to ask the Hasbro Transformers Team, if we only could.:(

    The way I recall it, that symbol is a Geologist symbol (was Landquake a geologist?). Given that it looks like those squiggly patterns used to find out stuff about earthquakes, that makes sense.

    What makes no sense is that Brushguard has that symbol, given he's botanist or something. I'll tell ya one thing though: Pauly T is right, the Energon Landmine mold is AWESOME.

    I posted the bios in at the top of the thread now. You can see that while it does'nt outright go "landquake is a autobot geologist" he is a energon miner and while I recall the energon omnicons useing other bits of equipment to help them dig landquake punches his way through seams in the rock bed.

    Brushguard is a scientist though who has a offroad truck as his alternate mode.
    The symbol could be related to some mountain expedition team.

    the only straight thing that the bios have in common, is that they are both pacifists. did you know quakers are pacifists? (get it quake?)
    im willing to bet they were both part of a scientology team. kinda like Cyb. landmine and Mudflap were both on a construction team together.
    i noticed the symbol the fist time i saw a brushguard

    Count me as one of the folks who never noticed. Good eyes!

    Not sure if it has any official meaning, but would love to find out if that's the case.

    Also, Landmine/quake is indeed one of the best molds of the last five years.

    Maybe they were part of the same nature club, in high school.

    Landquake is a geogilist and Brushgard is a Bontanist.

    So Brushgard shouldn't have that logo,

    I tried to ask someone at the Hasbro booth at last year's Botcon, but I never did get an answer to the question. (and by someone, I mean Eric and Arron)

    It must be the secret scientology sigal.

    I know it's been brought up several times, but no one had an answer. I'd imagine someone at Hasbro thought it was "cool" and stuck it on Landquake, and then thought it was "cool" again and stuck it on Brushguard. They are both repaints, that might have something to do with it.

    I third the motion that Landmine/quake is a really good figure.

    I never said it wasn't. I'm quite fond of Landquake, and I think the symbol gives him some personality.
