    In an absolute sense, is the tank mode good? No. As a retool of Skullgrin? It's amazing. For Quake's tier as a non-cartoon late-ish G1 guy, I think this package is actually quite good.

    That was my thoughts too

    Also maybe Guzzle at a push but then I'd prefer him be massive like his IDW version

    Nice, glad I didn't get the TR version now, cheaper and more updated.

    Tank’s a bit rough (turning Skullgrin into this is impressive though) but I love this mold so I’m happy to get another version

    It's not bad, actually impressive going from Skullgrin to this, but I feel it looks off once it hits the turret. Does the turret need to be taller? Set back further? Maybe the barrel needs to be bigger? I don't know.

    I thing you can add one of the “bazooka” guns from the Earthrise CJ mold to the end of the barrel and it might do the trick

    Overall I like him and think the chubby tank mode is good...except for the amount of blue breaking up the turret. The packaging photo of him on the back even shows it having more red, which looks better since it unifies the design.

    I think the easiest solution is to just touch up the exposed blue sides of the chest you see in tank mode with some grey paint to help match it (doing so won't ruin his bot mode either since it will be on the sides and not immediately visible when looking at the figure straight on)

    Ah yes, generic deceptigoon. Time to add more fodder to the Decepticon shelf.

    Oh wait I have to be offended by an altmode. Uh. Oh nooooooo it looks like you painted a bunch of pancakes and smashed them together!

    ...

    He still looks a lot better than Siege Refraktor. Or ER Runamucks bum ass car mode. Or, I dunno, SKULLGRIN

    Not bad, but I honestly forgot Skullgrin happened.
    I'm kinda surprised there aren't more tanks in the cons. Sure it's a Megatron standard now, but even without a rotating turret, they're pretty rare.

    I really don't understand borderless faction symbols. They look terrible and in a lot of cases, plain hard to even see. They need the white border around them to stand out.

    I liked Skullgrin a lot more than I thought I was going to and this looks like a unique way to get Quake out of him, big fan!

    A new guzzel would be wonderful. Then maybe DNA can come by and put him on roids.
