Heya everyone,

Somebody gave me an old TF that I've never seen before. I don't see it in the galleries.

It's a red Tank (modern Earth tank) with a grey turret, about G1 or G2 engineering level. It's largish, like a modern deluxe (say classics Galvatron). There are no stickers so I don't know the faction. The turret splits in half to become the arms. The head is grey, g1/2 style. The tracks areas or 'flanks' fold out to become the legs. The feet-generic old school black blocks fold out from them.The turret gun is missing and to my understanding was removable.

The previous owner says it's from around 1990.

Does this ring a bell to anyone?
"Everyone has a hobby.Even people who say they don't still have one under another name.If we're sick,injured, we still go to it and get down to see how it is.If it needs something, we bring it,make sure the attention is perfect.It exercises our care and protection and gives us back philosophies.It's a living thing to us,and is the most perfect way to teach a young person how to be towards a living thing. It's something that should never be taken away."

I personally wouldn't call G1 Quake 'largish' by G1 standards, but going by your detailed description, I'm 100% certain Burn is correct.
Nice figure: he was sold with two targetmaster partners and a regular cannon. All three accessories can fit in the space in the turret.
I'm so meta, even this acronym...

I had a friend with the figure who had also misplaced the cannon, I think it was a common issue. Nice figure though still :)

Very Quake indeed. What year do the copyright stamps say it's from? Usually it's a year before actual release, so in Quake's case it should say 1987.
