Later in the series we tend to see some new repainted figures. Chasm and Quake are a repainted version of Furos and Hardhead that came out a few waves ago. Where Hardhead was an Autobot, Quake is a Decepticon. And a good looking Decepticon he is. He is painted up REALLY hard with dark grey, blue, and maroon.
When Quake is side by side with Hardhead, it is clear that he is a repaint. There were no changes to this figure, as we have seen with many of the other retooled figures. The only difference is the face of the figure which comes on the back of Chasm.
Chasm is a repaint of Furos. Back in the day Furos (or Duros as he was known back then) was the Headmaster for Hardhead. Chasm is a new character, as Quake was not a Headmaster, but a Targetmaster. Now the funny thing is that Quake could have had either one of two figures (Tiptop or Heater) be his Titan Master this time around, but they went with a whole new name for this one. Maybe they didn’t want Quake’s two original Targetmasters to be upset that one would get picked over the other.
The tank mode is the same as Hardhead. This design was clearly taken from Hardhead’s original design with the quad-tread design and the offset cockpit.
Quake was originally a tank too, but back then, he was based off of a real-life tank, as opposed to a futuristic design. I really like the overall design and am not sad to see it a second time around. The tank still has the cannon that can rise off of the body, as well as pivot.
The same but different. This is a well designed Transformer, and it looks like a different design in two colors. One good and one bad, and that is easy to tell apart. And we needed some more Decepticons anyway. The percentages of the series are 52.7% Autobot and 46.4% Decepticon, and Gnaw being both with 0.9%. That is based on 110 figures over Titans Return from the smallest of Titan Masters to the giant Titans.
