TFW Gallery Goodness! I recently had the privilege to take an advanced look at this Legends scaled version of the iconic Quintesson Judge by new third party group, SRC (aka Super Robot Creaticon). My first impressions on this piece were entirely positive. It was a real case of "wow, this is really nice". Each of the five faces are excellently detailed, and the five tentacles are bendy. More on those later. The deco on the faces is excellent, each one captures the spirit and feel of the Quintesson's unique faces. The faces can be removed and interchanged, and the box (last image in the gallery) outlines a couple of different configurations for the faces, depending on if you are going for a show-accurate look or the movie Quintesson look. It's a simple addition, but it's a really nice touch. Speaking of nice touches, we have the tentacles. There's five of them, and each one is made from bendy wires similar to twist ties. This means the tentacles are poseable, which adds a bit of appeal to the design especially next to the non-poseable tentacles on the Impossible Toys version. Additionally, the tentacles can grasp objects (such as a gun from a Cyberverse toy) by looping round the gun post. It's a simple feature, but it's a much appreciated nice touch. Now, the big question is how this measures up next to the Impossible Toys Quintesson, and to be honest, this simply blows it away. The sculpt on the heads is far more detailed, and the scale is perfect for Legends Class toys, and also some Generation 1 toys (particularly compared to Generation 1 Optimus Prime, this Quintesson is pretty much bang on the right scale for the classic scene where he rebuilds the Autobot leader in The Return of Optimus Prime). I do not mean to do down the Impossible Toys Quintesson, which was a great piece at the time of its release and remains an excellent piece now, but the detail on SRC's Q's Judge is simply much more advanced. Final thoughts - this is a great piece. I went in with a pretty open mind as it is the first release from SRC, and was very pleasantly surprised from the moment I first laid eyes on the figure. The detail is excellent and it's a perfect Legends scale - with Hasbro putting more emphasis on Cyberverse, this guy is going to be a great fit with what's coming down the pipeline. The price will of course be the deciding factor, but I would heartily recommend this. I'm very much looking forward to SRC's future works - I am told they have a whole line of Legends Class items in the works, some of which we might see in early 2012. If they are as good as this piece, they will be an up-and-coming group worthy of following. Click here to check out the full TFW gallery!
