While there have been many rumours for what we will get in Earthrise, I wanted to concentrate on the ones that were the most unexpected and the most mysterious, the voyager Quintesson and deluxe Quintessa figures. While we published a few articles describing what different users, who claim to have seen these toys, have stated, it was varied enough that it comes down to speculation. So why not do that and take some educated guesses?

The only thing that is more than just a rumour are the listings from Hasbro (that have since been taken down) which name a voyager Quintesson and a deluxe Quintessa. It's rather interesting that even though Quintessons are a G1 staple since the 86 movie, they haven't appeared much in toylines. The last time we got one from Hasbro was in the Energon line from the previous decade. And even then, it was more an homage to G1 rather than an actual representation of the G1 characters. It seems the only Quintesson related characters we keep getting are the Sharkticons.

But now, finally, we are getting a Quintesson figure and a voyager, no less. While fans were wondering if it would transform or not, the latest rumours indicate that it will in some way. It is meant to be a mainline figure in a Transformers line so that does make sense and I would speculate as such. Of course, I'd expect the Quintesson mode (the only mode we have seen in the cartoon) will be the main one and what it transforms into to be a secondary function. Then again the Siege line gave us a good example of a G1 toy that only had one mode back in the day, Brunt, and it turned out to be a pretty good transforming toy. The fact that some rumours did mention a rotating head gimmick would mean this is the Judge type Quintesson (which seems to be the default type when thinking of Quintessons).

Transformers News: Speculations Regarding Upcoming Quintesson and Quintessa Figures

As for the deluxe Quintessa figure, the mystery is we don't even know what that could even be. Sure, we had a Quintessa in the Last Knight movie but the Generations line has been bent on G1. Even Barricade, who would be a crossover character from the films, was released in a fully G1 look as opposed to a Generations style version of his movie look, which has already been designed. Just to say that in the Generations line, the Quintessa figure would probably not even look like what she was in the film, nor even be a crossover character. We also need to remember that Quintessa is also the name of the planet and Hasbro has been known to change a character's name into a location associated to that character when releasing a toy (like Darkmount). So what else could that Quintessa listing be? Well, since it's a deluxe and we are getting G1 Quintessons, I would speculate something in regards to G1. If Hasbro is indeed going down that line to give us toys from that part of the G1 film, the other candidates for toys could be the Prosecutor or Professor type Quintesson. Another possibility, especially when thinking of it transforming, would be the Allicons. These are characters we never got before. Then again we could always get several of these Quintesson themed characters since while we know only of two listings, there could be more we do not know about.

So this is what is out there being discussed and I wanted to bring that here. What do you hope the Quintesson figure to look like? And what do you think the Quintessa figure reffers to? What would be ideal to you? Let us know!

Ideally for me, the Quintessa figure would be an Allicon. I don't really have a preference for the Quintesson though

One other thing we can easily rule out for this Deluxe class "Quintessa" figure would be the Necrotitan from IDW1, whose real name was Quintessa.

No mere Deluxe class toy would do that Quintessa any due justice.

regarding quintessa, there's a chance that it will be a homage to movie quntessa, just like how barricade is a homage to movie barricade. in this case, we can probably expect a new fembot toy. this would be interesting, assuming she gets her own mold, because another alternative would be a retool of, well, certain particular mold. you know which one.

I'm just hoping they are better than the Energon toy. Grant it at the time it was the only toy of it, but I just couldn't find anywhere in my heart to like it. That's one of the first toys I sold when I decided to thin my collection a bit several years back.

I think Quintessa might be a baseformer like Ironworks and turns from robot to the pit or a throne room.

I may have to pair up Soundbarrier with my TR Ultra Magnus just for the hell of it. :-P :VEHI:

That would be tough considering a TR Ultra Magnus doesn't exist. :-D

If you mean CW Ultra Mags, good luck. I don't think he has a useful 5mm port to attach Soundbarrier as a shield, and his hand would be pretty useless for that.

A pair of Soundbarriers ought to look cool on Siege Ultra Magnus.

There is a TR Ultra Magnus but he's only a head and was included with TR Arcee

Holy crap talk about mental moment! #-o Yeah I meant CW Magnus indeed. I'm not a fan of Siege UM. I'm sure Soundbarrier won't peg on at all but both side by side would look great IMO. :VEHI:

In Demand Toys has stock photos of Optimus up, yellow eyes and grey hands, that in-hand set from a while back must have been a custom. I guess I'm going to try to use my Tamiya paint?

They're pinned in there so I'll have to be careful, plus the hands are hinged, making it all the more tricky. Anyway, it'll be fine. Interestingly enough, the package art shows blue hands, but we knew there were logistical issues preventing that.

The trailers base/floor isn't even the same gray as the hands, so much for if this bit is blue/that bit is blue. Must have been another part that was more important to be gray than making the hands and inner legs gray.
No doubt a selects version with a diff pcolor scheme in the works but it still wont get rid of the outy 5mm ports that mar the arms/shoulders.

Don't forget y'all, the blue on the hands and codpiece on those leaked pics a bit ago were paint, and these same "final" Hasbro stock photos for Studio Series Leader DOTM Optimus were missing the silver paint on the ab piece that the actual final toy had. There's still at least some modicum of hope.

EDIT: Another thing of note is that we're back to the trailer port being split between the two legs, 2/3 on one and 1/3 on the other, when the Takara stock images showed the port as being all on one leg.

In Demand Toys have posted, on their Facebook page, images of Leader Class Optimus Prime both in and out of package! As you can see, he's packaged with his trailer opened up to repair bay mode, in order to accommodate it in the packaging space.

Image

Additionally, we have images of Optimus out of packaging and giving us some action poses, as well as showing us what is likely the final deco for the figure. A while back, there were images posted of what now seems to be a custom painted figure, with blue hands and codpiece, as well as blue eyes, rather than the G1 toy accurate yellow eyes.

What do you think of these pictures? Will Optimus end up with grey hands and yellow eyes? Or were those previous images a hand painted sabine of what the figure will turn out to look like? Feel free to speculate below!
