    A Japanese-exclusive repaint is hardly a 'classic'. This is like saying Cliffjumper is perfectly fine being a straight repaint of Bumblebee because the Classics toy did it, or that we shouldn't have gotten an accurate Spinister because he can just be a repaint of Protectobot Blades.
    ...
    And last time I checked, I thought you were against the use of words like 'classic' and 'iconic' to refer to Transformers?

    That thing is NOT a “Sci Fi tank” in any definition of the word.

    Aha, Quake is a Skullgrin retool! Going to have to grab two Quakes. I picked up a Skullgrin cheap on eBay (thanks, @hedcase1) just so I can use his upper half with second Quake's legs to give Skullgrin a proper tank alt. This Quake's tank mode isn't the best, but it's darn better than that incomplete tank-ish thing Skullgrin was stuck with.

    Edit: Or maybe not. Not sure Skullgrin's giant noggin will squish in there. Guess I'll have to catch an early transformation video from the usual suspects to see if that's possible.

    Edit 2:
    Man, I'd kill for a Collaborative Transformer version of Leona's tank Bonaparte from Dominion Tank Police.

    This wave includes the G1 Toy Prime (new mold), Quake (retool), Slipstream (repaint), and then apparently a repack. So there's your budget from biggest investment to least.

    Tank isn’t amazing, but I don’t need it to be. Overall closer to the G1 toy IMO.


    And if anyone isn’t satisfied with it, I have a TR Quake ripe for the taking ;)

    Love how they reworked the skullgrin mold, imo, it looks like a turtle shell was made into a tank.

    Yeah, the front of the tank is what really throws me. Tanks just don't get the "flat wall front" look EVER. But maybe some third party will come up with a cover that can go in that small square hole to fix that. If the turret actually can rotate (at least some, it doesn't look like it will rotate 360) and the black gun can elevate a little then those ARE pluses. The robot mode looks good enough and having targetmasters help so I probably will pick it up. It is far from perfect but I like it a lot better than the TR version.

    Because it's not designed that way to look cool or add function, it's just a way for them to fold the arms in and not bother covering them up in any way and just say 'hey it's sci-fi!'


    It does look a thousand times better than Skullgrin's alt mode though, I'll give it that.

    Yikes, that alt mode looks terrible. Robot mode isn’t anything remarkable, either.

    Not feeling this one.

    Main reason why I wanted a new Quake was to get one with a G1 accurate tank mode and so that there would be one that matches his Double Targetmaster brothers. But wow this is like okay but has a terrible tank mode.

    It's like they just gave up at the end, I seriously hate the Skullgrin mold at this point why does Hasbro think its a really great mold that needs to be reused over and over again yet other better deluxes they decide not to reuse?

    Guess I'm sticking to my Titans Return Quake, who was always a decent figure anyhow because he reminded me of his Vehicon form. Just disappointing that this is his "definitive" G1 self.

    Another "good enough" figure for a character I don't care about. My 'Con shelf needs more cannon fodder.

    I probably should've prefaced but my original TR quake has some bad memories attached to it :D  so I am 100% biased.

    I'll be honest most of my love for Quake comes from the fact that he was supposed to be in FOC. Plus his nifty design

    With how fantastic Spinister and Needlenose are, it's a fucking shame that Quake ends up as a partial. I don't know why it's suddenly okay for alt modes to get shafted in Legacy but it's been an annoying constant.

    Considering this came from the Skullgrin mold which I really hated this looks damn impressive was hoping for a good Quake and it looks like we got one.
