    Little known fact, the shortest measurement of time in 3p collecting is defined as the time it takes for TigerBlade to open his new galvy and get to giving him white thighs ;)

    I'd assume he'd just switch them from the purple one, shouldnt take a minute.

    I am curious @TigerBlade , why the white thighs alone?

    All images I've come across, his thighs are the same colour as his shins, treads etc in the toon.

    Thanks.
    I thought that was the price. But coudn't get any pre-order back then. Always sold out within a minutes.
    I was so happy when TFS - express saying they are getting pre-orders. When i got to their site it was already sold out. ><
    Still lucky to get mine for 215 usd.
    I also see that on e-bay the prices are getting crazy.
    When my blue one arrives, my 2 Sovereigns need to fight who's the new leader.
    I bet my purple crazy one will lose to the clear headed blue one. :)

    Just got mine. LOVE the color! IS there a fix for the grey armature on the back not tabbing in to his back? I don't wanna force it and break this guy.

    Use the purple parts on either side, the grey tabs slot into it.

    $180USD... before retailers saw the demand. $240 sounds fair now... better than the $300-$350 the secondary resellers will be asking on evilbay. FT Stomp anyone?

    Still some available at showz. I think it is worth the mark up rather than waiting a year . Ft factory is busy as it is.

    I think everyone knows it's gonna be awhile before FT gets around to re-releasing this with all that's on their schedule. Too bad ShowZ's pre-order price was $210, but mine's on the way also

    Looks like I might be selling one for a friend who's just been laid off - possibly as a 'double boxed/as new pack' with Quietus T by the looks of it. As mine's due tomorrow too, I think I might have to plank it out of sight to save it staring at him.

    Whilst I'm happy to help out as their 0 feedback account's probably going to scare bidders off, guaranteed there will be loads of 'how much for buy it now' and 'do you post to country x' messages regardless of it being a straight up UK-only auction for ease :)  Time to turn the app notifications off!

    Might be interested in Quietus T if you'd split.

    In the UK naturally :) 

    Edit - actually anyone with Sovereign M and both Quietus could you get a seperate pic of each Quietus next to his M leader?

    What's the general consensus on which Quietus is Movie accurate too as Google Images has an argument for both!

    Unless I keep both Quietus and sell XTB......

    Edit 2 - unless I repaint xtb into Dirge Cyclonus.....

    Hmm. Many options.

    Bbts had a few more for sale yesterday. I was lucky enough to get a 2nd for my son for xmas. I was going to post it here immediately after purchase but they were sold out again. I'm guessing it's all cancellations.

    My FT-16M is due tomorrow and I have both the standard and T variants of Quietus (albeit the standard is in IDW configuration), so I'll try tomorrow evening. One thing I would say though, as someone who wrote DVD/BD reviews for many years (and owns many versions of TTF:TM) the only version one should use when trying to make an accurate colour comparison is the most recent BD release. Even that isn't completely accurate as they screwed up the encoding so there's no true black in the image, which means you have to compensate for it manually. Anyway, T is more accurate for the most part.

    I'll certainly ask him.

    re: Quietus, T definately comes closer, although I've got a personal preference for T with the white parts from the original (as opposed to pink). Few pictures in the Quietus thead - looks pretty striking (I've yet to do it to my two, but that's the plan - the older model can live in alt mode)

    Couple things to address.

    #1 as far as I can tell the ONLY color difference is the main blue/purple. Everything on the legs is the same. Canons are the same.

    #2 YMMV but for me, the canon on the new guy stays pegged in the arm MUCH much better than on the original. Here is me holding him up only by the canon (I don't recommend you try this)
