SKU: 13336 Category:


?, Sharkticons, Ravage, Megatron, Optimus Prime and Ultra Magnus on Cybertron with Imperial Magistrate Quintesson of Death devouring the planet!!! Ultra Magnus recounts to an image of Optimus Prime of all the hard work and effort and sheer strength of character that was needed for Ultra Magnus to fill the void left by Optimus, after Optimus sacrificed himself to remove Megatron from the equation. The resentment in Ultra Magnus’ words is almost tangible. Ultra Magnus feels he is a soldier and nothing more. He very much prefers taking orders to giving them, and even avoids opportunities for higher responsibility. However, when he is forced into those opportunities, he displays that he is not only a good soldier, but a compatent leader as well. He’s strong, resolute, dependable, selfless, and courageous. Sadly, Ultra Magnus is the only Autobot who doesn’t realize this. Believing he is nothing but a soldier, Ultra Magnus is perfectly willing to sacrifice himself for the greater good if need be. He knows he’s more powerful than the average Autobot, and will throw himself at larger threats accordingly. He is respected by both the Autobots and Decepticons, due to his courage and self-sacrifice. The Quintessons were an alien race which appeared to conquer Cybertron at some point, but were driven off. However, they continued to maintain watch over Cybertron, eventually coming to manipulate the Council of Ancients. Megatron claimed this was the reason that he started the Great War The Route of All Evil. This did not, however, stop him from making a deal with the Quintessons, who provided him with the Aerospace Extermination Squadron. Knowing both Megatron and the Quintessons, both were planning to betray each other when the time was right. The Quintessons are a bizarre and ancient race of mechanoids, whose origins are unknown and their history and crafty actions are bound up with the history of the Transformers, and connections with Primus and Unicron. They prefer subterfuge, scheming, and advanced technology over brute force, but if those don’t work, they can fall back on the legion of deadly Sharkticons and Allicons at their command and a fleet of battle-ready spaceships as well. However, the Quintessons themselves have zero fighting abilities and are absolute cowards if they have nothing to hide behind. For example, they are seen to be powerless against a Sharkticon revolt. The most prominent and famous type of Quintesson, as well as the apparent “leaders” of the race, are the Judges, also referred to as the Imperial Magistrates. Judges have inverted, egg-shaped bodies which float on a beam of energy and possess wiry tentacles for grappling and moving things, but their most distinctive physical characteristics are their five faces which rotate on an axis. Each face represents a different aspect of the Quintesson, though for four of the five faces, there are conflicting accounts as to what each represents.
