Greetings Seibertronians! Fellow Seibertron user, and YouTube toy reviewer, Chuckdawg1999, has dropped us a line to tell us that they've recently reviewed the forthcoming Earthrise Voyager Class Quintesson Judge!

This is the first time that a Quintesson as seen in the G1 cartoon has been featured in a Generations toyline. There was the character Alpha Quintesson, who received a toy, in the Transformers: Energon series. Recently in the Transformers Cyberverse cartoon, there was a release of a stylized Quintesson Judge, matching the appearance in that show. For many years that's as close as the classic characters got to being immortalised officially by Hasbro, but neither matched exactly the depiction as seen in the Transformers 1986 animatedmovie and the thirdseason of the TV show.

Here's what Chuckdawg1999, had to say about the Quintesson Judge:
Chuckdawg1999 wrote:Here comes the Judge, here comes the Judge! Finally after 34 years we're getting a proper G1 Quintesson Judge as we saw in the original Transformers movie, and Season 3 of the G1 cartoon. While not a perfect toy, some parts feel a little cheap, it IS a Quintesson and can we really complain? Don't answer that.




What do you think of this review? Are you getting Quintesson Judge to allow the Quintessons a presence on your shelves? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!

The Quintesson looks fine and all for sure.


But man when's the last time there has been such an obvious candidate for shelfwarming?

Doubtful honestly, the number of people buying 5 is insane. This is like TR and Cyberverse Sharkticons, and the hopefully soon to be released Alicon: army builders.

Maybe for online sure, but in retail I presume it will shelfwarm in the same way the Thrilling 30 Beast Wars stuff did.

The non-humanoid design of the Quintessons is what I mean, it doesn't seem like something a parent would buy for their child or something that a kid is going to want unless their more of a "fan" because it might look "lame" in comparison to other Transformers figures, obviously I don't mean this in the case of every parent or child but it just seems like it would be the common mindset.

Stuff like Sharkticons and Alicons don't quite have the same problem because their standard humanoid Transformers that so happen to transform into robotic animals which seem to sell better then the more "flesh-like" stuff such as Beast Wars type things.


Ah for anyone who would remember, how did the Energon Alpha Quintesson figure sell?

Plus I'm sure a lot of people took advantage of pre-ordering them through Target in February when they were only $20 and then half off the second on top of it. Sure, that doesn't do much for the ones sitting on the shelves, but Hasbro probably moved a lot of figures through Target for that sale. Hasbro isn't effected by sales so they would have made bank, but I'm betting Target wishes they had that sale a week earlier! :lol:

I wouldn't even really put stock into the non-humanoid appearance, I think the selling of SS Constructicons puts money to mouth there of weird non-humanoid designs selling.

Still going to wait for the Pit of Judgement to experience the Quintesson Judge. I only need one, I get they can be army built but for me one is fine. Allicons and Sharkticons though, I’ll build those up a decent squad each.

And if it's too soon to call it Grapple, can we say Siege Megatron/35th anniversary Megatron?

I think the Horrocons could use the nickname "Artillery Bois", just look at those guns on their backs when in beast mode. Two big monsters come stomping towards you firing cannons and you are gonna run.

Granted, I haven't looked at Walmart in a while because of obvious circumstances, but last time I was there, they still had a mountain of Megatrons. Don't understand why they thought it would be a good idea to release 2 similar versions of the same mold around the same time.

And then release the mold again in the Netflix line. And again in Earthrise....

Honestly, ER Megs better not be in the same wave as the Quintesson Judge, because I think they're both going to shelfwarm.

Hell yeah! Anti-aircraft artillery. Then the Autobot plane fly away, thinking it's safe...
Then... :twisted:

Except it may be even better or worse than you think (I'm not sure which). Something weird is going on with the waves because Target is shipping the Quintessons and Snapdragon right now (I receive mine tomorrow). Not sure on Megatron as I passed on him. They were both slotted for September 1st, while Megatron was slotted for November 1st. According to TFwiki and entertainment earth's wave 2 and 3 case Listings wave 2 should be Snapdrgon and a repack of Starscream, and wave 3 Quintessons and Megatron.

Also Snapdragon is WFC-E21 and the Quintessons are WFC-E22, so clearly they are actually in the same wave despite EE's case Listings. Something must have changes up since the original reveals that put the Quintessons and Megatron in the same wave.

According to Hasbro Pulse, the Quintessons are shipping mid September with Megatron slated for November 1st, so something is definitely different than what is on tfwiki.

Also, Pulse has Snapdragon in stock right now.

This whole situation is just Siege Springer and Thundercracker all over again, and it's going to make Megatron and Starscream shelfwarm AGAIN. #-o

I don't trust my local distribution. I had to preorder my two most wanted, Snapdragon and Arcee, from BBTS.
Snapdragon is in my Pile Of Loot. Now I only need Arcee.

Ok, so I just noticed Pulse and Walmart pushed back deluxe wave 2 to October, this is just ridiculous. There's no way Kingdom toys are coming out in December, unless certain ER toys just get skipped entirely, which would make me very upset.

I still have wave 2 on pre-order at Target which shows anytime between now and 9/14, but I'm not holding my breath.
