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?

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.
Love thy pretenders.
