    I needed a replacement instruction booklet for Thomas. I requested it in early May, and I actually got the booklet in the mail last week. Came out to be about 2 months wait.

    My son knocked my first copy of Quietus T off a table and a sliver of plastic broke off one wing hinge. It held in both modes but would work itself off whenever you tried to manipulate that joint for transformation. In May I wrote FT asking to buy a new wing assembly. They responded that I needed to write again in June after the reissue dropped. I did that at the very beginning of June and they charged me, I paid, and they said it would take about 10 weeks.

    I got a second Quietus T right before I found out I could get a replacement part from FT. So I have one good one on my S3 con shelf and the one that needs fixing on a shelf in IDW mode with the few IDW style figures I own.

    Thanks for answering, guys. Speak of the devil. I got the replacement parts today! It was a month and a half wait. I'm guessing overseas shipping from China to the US is slowly getting back to normal.

    Bit of a long shot but I just scored a cheap metallic Quietus on eBay missing some accessories and I wondered if anyone is willing to sell the MTMTE head, if they're not using it?

    Mine has his hip skirts and swords but no spare faces, guns or the MTMTE head :S

    Alternatively, do you think FansToys would sell me the missing parts?

    Your best hope is to contact Fanstoys. While I’m at it I recently purchased a misb Quietus and after now years of waiting I’m kind of underwhelmed!

    Emailed FT and @dalianjj got back to me straight away! They’ll sell me the parts for $30, which is awesome :D 

    Fingers crossed I don’t have the same issue that some here have had with them just not turning up :S

    I was beginning to cope with the fact that I might never get this guy but Toy Dojo had a single T in stock for $30 less than TFSource price so I had to jump on it.

    This piece keeps falling off. Is there any reason I shouldn't just glue it on? Would I be damaging or limiting the figure in some way I can't foresee?

    I see no reason you can't glue it.

    When I got my replacement wing it didn’t come with that part so I had to take it off the old one. That’s the only reason I can think of that you might not want to glue it.

    If your wing isn’t broken then it’s fine to glue it. But sometimes life happens.

    Quietus and Apache came in. Personally, it's not so much the paint and diecast metal that sets this figure apart even though those are definitely nice at this price point, it's the proportions and the face sculpt. Now to wait for Sovereign.

    Question on the original Quietus. I remember in this thread the second batch of Quietus had the back of the knees fixed so they didn't scratch the chest during transformation. Is that correct?

    I do remember someone getting a replacement chest and that had some coating on it to prevent scratching?

    If any of the above is correct, is it possible to tell from the box which version might be which? 1st batch from 2nd batch?

    The first image is FT-29 (original release with white face/hands), circled in blue is the knee that would scratch the chest plate

    The second image is FT-29T (newer release with pink face/hands), circled in yellow is the newer modified knee that doesn't scratch the chest plate

    As far as chest coating goes, I've owned both and apart from the knees and the white/pink parts they seemed identical

    Thanks for this. Just to clarify, just wanting know if there's a way to tell batch 1 from batch 2 of FT-29. Not the T.

    Sorry but as far as I'm aware re the original FT-29, there was no batch 2 with "fixed" knees (but I could be mistaken)

    AFAIK the later release had a some coat on the chest that helped out. The chests that FT sent out also had this, if you look at them in strong light you will see that they reflect light differently.

    (EDIT: And the top portion of the knees was slightly remolded for the T version, like in your pics)
