    Don't give Fanstoys ideas. Next thing you know we have FT-16S ever so slightly more purple edition, followed by FT-16P Hot Pink edition, FT-16T Tartan edition (McGregor clan), and FT-16MO, which is exactly the same as the original except for a stylish moustache.

    And each version is £20 more expensive. ;)

    M's luscious burple paintiness oozes with hot sex and is the clear winner but the original is still a great piece that I won't be selling because I'm insane and it must be stowed deep in my closet forever.

    You know what sucks is that my "M" looks straight blue on the shelf with my other figures. The "blurple" it had when I unboxed it upstairs with natural light coming in disappears on the shelf... :(

    Waiting on a replacement part for my Sovereign M, but I'm having similar trouble deciding between the two versions. On the one hand, the original looks more like the Galvatron I remember. On the other hand.... the finish of M is just gorgeous, and even if he looks more blue than purple in my home lighting, he makes the original look dull and lifeless in comparison. I've been swapping the two around for a couple of days now, and M has this eye catching sheen to him that makes the original look inferior whenever I switch them around, like a true centerpiece figure. Yet despite that, I can't help but feel that the OG Sovereign better represents Galvatron as a whole.

    Nnnnngggghhhhhh.... can't.... decide... :banghead:

    I am concerned right now because I think we are the same person...

    KEEP BOTH.

    or better still

    Sell one and then bet your life on a reissue. Remember, at most you'll just cry later on.

    Yeah I'd just keep the other in storage. You could maybe sell it one day down the line, or if something ever breaks on one, you have a good chance of either parts swapping or whole figure swapping. Not like the money you get from selling it is THAT much dolla. So long as you got the room for storage, that'd be my suggestion. It's kinda hoardery and a bit psycho to have 2 versions of such a pricey figure with one just sitting in storage, but I do enjoy knowing I have a backup if one ever breaks...
    Yeah I know I have problems.

    It really depends if your galvatron is Nemoy or Welker. The answer should be clear...
