Hasbro Transformers Generations Titans Return Decepticon Quake Action FigureTransformers fans know repaints are a part of life, so Decepticon Quake is almost an inevitability given that Hardhead [FOTD #1,653] exists and needed to show up again somewhere as something. The toy has been given a completely new face plate and tons of paint. Tons. Like, this sucker is slathered in pigment and it looks fantastic.

This 1.5-inch Chasm is a redeco of Furos - minus paint. The 5-jointed robot looks as well as these look, and he sports a new faceplate for the Quake mode. There are no surprises to be had here.

The head mode is good - it does an excellent job replicating the basic look of the original 1988 toy. It's also pretty much the only part of this robot aside from the colors that genuinely looks like the original.

The tank mode is Hardhead but better - at least, I like it better. There are Decepticon symbols in lightning bolts, plus lots of maroon paint to really bring out some life in the already lively tank moe. Silver panels were also added, making this one significantly sharper than what we got with Hardhead. The blue on the hood of the tank is also quite nice. The rolling wheels on the bottom were cast in clear blue, and the large roller on my sample was partially knocked out when I opened it - so be careful, you don't want to lose it especially before you transform it for the first time.

As with before, the larger gun is on an articulated series of panels and can itself open up for seating Titan Masters figure. It's more of a complete action toy vehicle than many of the others, and it gets even better if you make use of the foot pegs on the body to add extra tiny robots. They can jump up and down on the top for no good reason. (I'm really not sure why they're there.) It's also worth noting that the original G1 Quake toy looks more like a traditional tank, so I guess there may still be reason to ask Hasbro to do it again some day. I wouldn't hold your breath for a remake though.

Quake is fun to transform, with better joints than Hardhead and a pretty easy to figure out switcheroo. The elbow meat collapses inside tank treads, the fists rotate in, the toes fold down, and everything sort of contorts into place nicely.

The last time someone tried to make a Quake, the old Tankor mode was being considered for the honors. It would've been a swell tank mode, but the robot mode would have been a bit off - particularly the head. Since Hasbro got the basic deco and most of the form factor correct, it's a decent upgrade. Sure, the big shoulder cannon was originally purple - and not a shoulder cannon - but it looks good here and it's fun to futz with. It's clearly an update-slash-quick-and-dirty way to bring this character to the main line at one per shipping carton. He doesn't quite have 20 points of articulation, but there are plenty of arm joints and some added paint missing from Hardhead that make this a pretty snazzy toy. If this were a BotCon exclusive, you'd probably kind of want it... and kind of want Hasbro to do a better version later. It definitely scratches the itch for a Quake, and it's good enough for now. And probably for a long time, I can't imagine we'll ever see a new update for quite some time.

Quake ships at 1 per carton - so does Krok. I haven't seen him on store shelves as of my writing this review, but I assume he'd probably hang a bit because he has some amazing casemates. The paint job is great, I love the deco, and it's just a great Decepticon to add to the ranks. If you're into that sort of thing. He's not a famous face, I have no idea if he has any storylines coming up in the comics, and odds are if you missed him, you'd never know it. It delivers a decent toy experience with superlative paint at the price point, but the novelty of bringing an obscure character to life may not be enough to make this worth your while. I don't think you'll be sorry if you get one, but if your shelves are bursting at the seams I'm sure you're probably wanting to hold off for something else.
