    If any of you decide not to keep ft-29t, let me know. I'm still hoping one will come in stock at retail so I wouldn't pay the 230 ShowZ is charging, but I'd be willing to go a bit over retail. Thanks guys.

    Also I have an original version to trade if anyone who got ft-29t would prefer the original

    I looked on ebay and sellers are asking upwards of $245US and that's before tax. It softens the blow a bit that with showz I don't get slugged with GST like I do on ebay/AliExpress these days.

    I have no idea how long it was in the works before it was revealed publicly, but from the original silhouette teaser (with the Galvatron reveal) it will be 4 years this November so maybe 5 in total (since they don't reveal when they begin the earliest stages of engineering the transformation). From the prototype reveal in July 2017 it took about 1 year 3 or 4 months to release the original deco, about 3 years from the silhouette teaser.

    Gotta love the accuracy of the work done by Akom animators.

    Man, FT, why you gotta make this so hard to decide between them. I don't like the hue of the skin color on the T version, it looks like he ate some bad sushi and has food poisoning. But the hue to his blue-ish body panels is a more purplish shade which is much better than the more pure blue of the original version. Neither one is 100% to my liking.
    This is just like the Phoenix situation, where the X model has matching red pieces all over it, but has an off-white pearlescent finish to the body panels that makes it look like it comes pre-faded. The pure white of the original looks better to me, but the mismatched red bits is a negative. And the metallic blue eyes of the original are nicer than the flat blue eyes of the X model. This is the curse of FT, apparently. They are bound to never release a perfect deco. Arrgh. :) 

    I think I may just keep the original and resell the T version simply since it is worth more and I definitely don't need two of them.

    edit:
    Quietus-T - MI(S)B, only opened to verify contents and compare color next to regular Quietus, then resealed. $225 shipped continental US.

    Maybe someone will feel the same way and swap the white parts to the T version and vice versa. Then we can see how it would look

    I pondered doing just that, for a moment, but wasn't sure how difficult it might be (are all the skintone parts screw-on pieces?) and if someone would want the other combination.
