I'll get a pic in the morning when there is better lighting.
I talked to him today and he said he shipped out a ton of these this week and none of them seem to be updating. I also had 2 other items I got from him in the same order; 1 is updating, 1 is not and both shipped the same day.
As I said before earlier today FansToys is literally killing its competitors with such ferocity the way with each release,it started with Stomp back this past Summer 2016,then Lupus,then next month Grinder,then Phoenix,Spindrift,Terminus Giganticus,Koot,Hydra,and any other I forgot to mention.So FansToys is just tearing every other 3P (even some Officials) a new a**hole with all these works of art.Sure some like XTB,MMC,and TW are slowly catching up with some of their figures I just think FansToys are now the king of the hill,others may disagree but I just think so.Later all.
FansToys is killing its competitors with such ferocity? I am still seeing MT and MMC, and the number of new 3rd parties is on the upswing.
Either FT has no competitors, or you are just speaking in hyperbole. Heck, Takara is still around as well.
Got mine today from TCP. Packaged extremely well. Unfortunately the figure itself does seem to have a few QC issues. The legs can't seem to stand next to one another, ie one leg is always in front of the other. Also my cannon arm is super loose. It can barely hold his arm up without the gun. With the gun it holds for a few seconds then drops. but it plummets with even the smallest version of the laser blast. The back part to the other arm was just loose in the box, the curved piece used to cover the screw holes. Also one of the panels on the back was just sitting in the box. I am going to try and fix the issues myself, but somewhat disappointed on this one. All my other FT stuff has been near perfect. Cracks me up too, since there is a green QC sticker on the back of his leg.
^ next time shoot some pics!
That green QC sticker has been a joke since the Insect days. I am praying hard that my string of luck with FT products would continue.
So for whatever reason, my Sovereign sat at the USPS hub instead of making it to the local post office. So instead of getting it today like was scheduled, it looks like I wont get it until tomorrow. I've waited this long so one more day wont kill me, but it sure is annoying.
Anyone else still waiting on TFS-Express preorders?
Mine is on the way. I expect him this week.
My order status now says Awaiting Shipment... doesn't fill me with confidence
I just got my dispatch notice a few hours ago!
I ordered 2nd of Jan.
Sovereign is absolutely outstanding. I just wish alt mode was as stunning as Tyrants. Also the damn thing is so heavy it struggles in alt mode. I tried tightening the screws, but I'm scared to over do it and strip something.
That's happened to me before too, except it was a time when the shipment was ahead of schedule. So it got to the hub, and I guess they were like, "Well, we've got a couple of days. Instead of just delivering it, let's just let it sit here for two days". It's funny how the closer a package gets to being delivered, the more unbearable the wait becomes...
I was going to wait for a deal on this guy but I might just cave and buy it :S
Dare to belieeeeeeve you can survive!
You hold the future in your haaaaand!
Ain't that the truth.
I'm sorry your's has qc issues. I know Brandon will take care of you.
I'm afraid when I get mine. It will have some qc issues. I think Sovereign may have been rushed out before the CNY. Which sucks if that's the case.
There has been maybe ONE report of a QC issue. Let's not start the narrative of this having issues.
Just got my email that he's ready for shipment! So excited!
I too would have preferred the bluish purple of the og movie but the purple ft went with is fine as far as evoking regular season 3 galvatron and it looks reallllly nice in hand. Something a lot of photos don't convey is the surface treatment ft used has a car-like treatment to it where it reflects light unlike regular plastic does and has a sparkly surface effect to it as well. Its really nice. What's interesting is they weren't able to apply it to the inner wrist and finger parts so those have the raw more pinkish purple plastic while the rest was all surface treated.
