    Sold off my 16-M.

    I think I am good with one Galvatron. I do think this is the definitive edition of Sovereign, but sh** is really getting out of hand.

    Here are a few I took, with the lights at different angles (my diffusers are in storage at the moment, hence the highlights). Should give you an idea though, even if my original FT-29 is in IDW config. I will say that the difference between the two FT-29s is more pronounced in hand. Cameras really do have trouble with the subtle nuances of these hues.

    He looks pretty sweet up close! I need to Photoshop him into an appropriate background when I have the time.

    I found the diffusers...

    Just for completeness...

    So I switched my white and pink parts back, just to see how I feel about it, but yeah, think I'll switch them again soon. I'm not sure if the 29T is perhaps just reflecting more light than the og 29, but it seems a bit too light.

    29

    I will say that under my light where 16M looks a warmer colour, the 29T looks better with him, but under other lights when he looks cooler, the og29 does.

    I'm seriously considering asking dalianjj if I can purchase the pink parts of 29T so I can have them both with the pink.

    Only problem I have with the 16M is it has me despearately trying to track down a 29T. A little frustrating and the task almost made me consider letting my order at BBTS for Sovereign go.

    I'm kinda jumping back in the game though with these and was wondering what decal you guys recommend? Dry or Waterslide, what brand?

    This whole repaint thing is just messing with my head. I love my FT-16 but at the same time FT-16M looks great, too. But do I have the room or need for it? Yes. No. Yes. No....etc. My head is spinning.

    Very nice setup. I just pray there are no mild tremors happening while you are there working (or even if you aren't there).

    That Quietus T is hilarious. 'if I stand upright they'll not see me!'

    That said I think I prefer the more blue of the first Quietus next to the more bluey Sovereign M. Guess I'll see it in person tomorrow when I get around to it.

    Yeah he sits in storage for the most part so it is the out of box pose lol. I only display the regular Quietus but going to keep both just in case I ever change my mind. Quietus is the only one I can't choose between for the definitive toon color

    I hear that. I've been looking at the pair of them, trying to decide what to do (hoping to really just have one of each character), and I cant decide. I think I'll go back to blue w/ pink.

    My backpack was loose and not assembled out of the box, The arm not long enough to peg into the slot. Any ideas?

    NM, I finally got it in but it took a lot of effort and muscle lol.

    Finally received my 16M. Haven't had the chance to really check him out yet but it's an absolutely stunning piece.
