And I grabbed it. Thanks for the heads up!
okay. I guess my thinking was that the reissue has been the same price the whole time. I didn't know you were comparing the original issue versus the reissue.
Bombusbee came through! Finally got him! His wings are a smidge floppy, but no arm issues to report.
"Cyclonus... the Warrior!.. and his Armada..."
I think Quietus looks better than Eligos, the latter being a MP-10 era bot suffer from some design limitations of its time.
Quietus still beats Eligos for sure, but this new reissue Eligos definitely looks a lot better than the original if you ask me, and it's partly because of that new head and face sculpts, which on the original was the worst part of the entire figure, IMO.
It doesn't add any value to me personally, since I don't care about headsculpts to be honest. Body > head
Took a few recent pics of this handsome devil...
True, Eligos' body can't beat the absolute beauty of Quietus', but at the same time you probably wouldn't want to look at an ugly mug like OG Eligos'.
It's always been something for me that almost even made or broke a figure. MMC OX Azalea is great, but I ended up going with MP-51 partly due to the former's more cartoony face over 51's more cartoon accurate yet more slick, and maybe even a bit more anime-like (generally speaking), which I felt was Takara's standard with MPs as of late.
I know a lot of people here care quite a bit about what the face looks like, but I am one of the few who doesn't (too much), maybe because I collect based on engineering and whether the figure looks cool or not.
Eligos' original facesculpt doesn't bother me for example, I believe it is fine.
If you missed the free "Universal Stand" deal with your FT-29T re-issue, then ShowZ has them for 50% off now. Looks like they're cutting quite a few prices on a couple FT items as well as XTB/KFC.
FansToys Universal Stand
He's beautiful but I can't bring myself to pay the ridiculous mark up. No justification to the price increase at all.
There are reasons for SOME increase, but yeah- not 50% more than the first release. Though pricing seems to have varied from $239.99 WITH universal stand at Heat Toys/Bombusbee which is not quite as crazy unreasonable to the typical high North American $269.99ish retail pricing. Not sure exactly WHY prices went up that much. That said, the Takara pricing for similar sized bots may be setting markets as well.
Love his new colors
So I just picked up the purple people eater from BBTS in the last week. I was going to wait for Eligos but I’m not sure what’s going on with Xtb’s release schedule at the moment. But has anyone had any issues with any of the front foot/toes not moving? One of mine is just froze.
Just heads up for anyone looking for one of these, I just requested cancellation of an in stock Quietus T from ex.tfs-express.com -https://ex.tfs-express.com/fans-toys/-511-fans-toys-ft-29t-quietus-reissue.html
Should be back up soon!
According to the site I've just gotten it, and it's gone back out of stock accordingly - cheers for the heads-up!
Got mine in a while back and just opened him up today.
Great presence. A bit like Phoenix in the the sharp detail and great face sculpt makes him really pop.
great to pose as well
So I got him the other day. This guy looks amazing.
One issue with mine brand new, I had contacted fanstoys about this, and they suggested "using a small screwdriver to knock that small pin out and reinstall it"
I don't have alot of experience doing this, anyone have any advice to fix this backwards finger? See attached
I know these things vary scene to scene in the G1 toon, but what is the default positioning of his little rabbit ears? (these little things keep me up at nite lol)
If someone is still looking for the T version, I have one available for sale over at B/S/T. MISB.
