    When FansToys get something right, they really get it right. Quakewave, Stomp, Scoria…these were all exceptionally good products, but items like Spotter, Willis, Lupus and the Insects all left a slightly more bitter taste in my mouth as they could have been that bit more polished, squeaky clean QC-wise and just generally more user-friendly. Stomp was the last figure I felt they had comprehensively nailed, and it appeared at the top of enough end-of-year lists just to drive the recognition of that success home. One year on, FansToys have put out FT-16 Sovereign, their take on a Masterpiece-style new evil leader from the 1986 Transformers animated feature. So have they scaled the same heights?

    I love this figure, and agree about his face sculpt as it's one of the best out there.

    Excellent review, Maz. I agree with everything you wrote. I can't afford to buy too many of these expensive figures anymore, so I'm quite happy I picked Sovereign. He looks the way I want a G1 Galvatron to look, his face sculpt is perfect, and call me crazy, but I actually enjoy his transformation. Getting the cannon mount in and out of his chest is really the only sticky part for me. Even the gray bits that tab into his shoulder pylons in cannon mode can be gotten out without a tool; just apply some gentle pressure to the hinges (like you're trying to pull them back to the center of the toy) and they'll pop out.

    He really does have that "wow" factor in hand.
