Quint-05 is based on the guard first seen in The Transformer: The Movie.
Preorders for the non-transforming Nightbird and Quint-05 were opened on TFscource in January 2008.
The Quintesson Bailiff (Guard) is a bulky anthropoid creature armed with a double-headed pile-like weapon (ankus). The Bailiff is a saurian creature with a piglike snout. Strong, foul-tempered and mildly troglodytic, the muttering and grumbling Bailiffs are charged with the defense of the Quintesson court, and are usually seen accompanying defendants from their prison cells to the courtroom proper. Having created Autobots and Decepticons as servitor races, the Quintessons were defeated by their creations, expelled from Cybertron, and forced to colonize the much less grandiose planet of Quintessa. Consequently the Quintessons are now disgruntled, and are forced to entertain themselves with mock trials, petty cruelties, bizarre experimentations and attempted subterfuges.
