Reception

Fictional biography

The Quintesson Judge is represented by a selection of robotic faces outlying an ovoid module suspended by a propulsion column with a light-up feature. The Judge is served by a number of feeble rudimentary tendrils. Still embittered by the uprising of the once-subservient Autobots and Decepticons, the Quintesson Judge and his compatriots preside over a paradoxical courtroom drama on the planet of Quintessa. Random robots are known to crash-land on Quintessa with at least some regularity; those unfortunate robots are then apprehended by the greedy grubby Allicons and brought before the Judge for speedy trial and sentencing. (Don’t burden yourself with an elaborate defense, and don’t bother requesting a court-appointed attorney, because apparently any verdict carries the penalty of death by Sharkticon.) Quintesson Judges appear to be the primary authority figures in the Quintesson hierarchy, commanding a wide variety of other Quintesson life forms, although the Judges’ primary thrill seems to be the guilty or innocent routine.

Reception

Quint-1 has been called a must for Transformers Generation 1 collectors.[6]
