    What do you use as a background for your shots Destructimis? Or do you do photoshop the background in? I think I see some physical kinks in it though..

    Everything pops so nicely on whatever that weird gradient you have there is.

    I don’t use photoshop. All my pictures are taken in a photo booth that I made. 6DDB5441-9072-4E6A-88EF-EC0D3C858807.jpeg

    It's not to bad actually. I received my first waterslides a week or two ago to put on my Quietus T and it's pretty simple to do. After you've put them in water for about 10/20 seconds or so you have plenty of time to realign the decal on your figure so you should be good. I find it easiest when using some small tweezers. Good luck!

    I've failed to get this figure again lol.... Got scammed by an eBay seller and they're all sold out everywhere by now or jacked price even more.

    The first release I procrastinated until they were all gone, second reissue I didn't like the raised price, and this M one I paid the even higher price but got scammed lol. Takara please do one that's not $300.

    Thanks @mcart I picked it up on my birthday at a local comic shop. I thought it was pretty cool.

    That sucks.

    Some years ago I finally tried The Chosen Prime, and I never looked back. I know I could save a few bucks if I shopped harder, but it's worth it to me to take the stress out of collecting. They've even hooked me up a couple of times given my history as a solid customer.

    There are other excellent retailers out there, like Toy Dojo. For me, buying through a domestic retailer is worth paying a little more.

    Has anyone else noticed a little bit of extra play in the ratchets of one knee? On my copy the upper knee joint on the figure's right knee has a fre extra degrees of play between the teeth compared to the left.

    Man, sovereign came with one of the worst instruction booklets ever. There are tons of missing steps. Thank goodness for video reviews.

    Can I ask a favour please, save me trawling youtube. My old Sovereign has a tight back pin on his rear "horn" in robot mode, so it stays firm. My Sovereign M, 2 copies of it, both have slack pins, so his backpack droops down. It looks like it should peg in, but cant reach. Am I being an idiot here ?

    No, you're good.
    My M version is the same and there have been a few other people mention it on here, the grey cannon leg that folds up does peg onto his back via the long vertical tab, on the M one tho its super tight.
    There are also secondary tabs that secure it tho, on the side of the arm. Takes a bit of finagling but the blue sections peg onto those when you get them lined up, even if you're not tabbed onto the other one.

    As long as you get those 2 tabbed in its rock solid.

    Righty, then. Got the replacement parts fixed up, so Sovvy M now transforms fine. Now he's complete, I found it was a similar situation to Quietus T, for me. Once I had the new version on the shelf, it was impossible to go back to the old figure. The presence of this figure is something else.

    Anyway, thought I'd post a crappy picture to get some closure. Apologies!
