    WOW. The metal look isn't my cup of tea, but I absolutely can't deny that it looks BEAUTIFUL! Keep up the awesome work!

    Finally ordered a Sovereign M... Although ibot told me recently that their version is turning out great, so I wouldn't mind getting Abaddon later.

    Hello! This is my first ever post! Greetings!

    I'm really interested in acquiring a FT-16M sovereign. Where is the best place to order these days? I see that ShowZ can get him to me for $300 shipped. I'm considering that option. Is there anything cheaper that comes with a recommendation?

    Thanks so much for the link!!!!

    Think this price is the best I'll get at this point in time?

    Also - why do you think this is the last one? It lets you add two to the cart at least!

    I don't know of any other better place, someone else might know. FYI, shipping is a bit slow from China at this time, so you will need some patience.

    Weird, the product page told me that there was only 1 left.

    The figure says 1 available, but when you select packaging it says that there are 5 available. I believe that he is trying to denote that he has 5 but will only sell 1/customer or 1/transaction or something similar.

    To Cybertron!!!!

    Looks very nice, but the way the shoulders "lock" into place leaves a lot to be desired... The paint also creates some tolerance issues here and there...

    Was able to get this guy ft-16m for $230. Seems like a good deal.

    Anything I should be aware of with any issues with this guy? Never planned to get him nut price seems quite good.

    Thanks

    I don't have the M version but as far as the regular one goes I have no issues with him whatsoever apart from the transformation being a total pain in the b*tt. I transformed him once a long time ago and I'm never doing that again. It didn't cause any scratches or paint chips though so I assume the same goes for the M variant. Congrats on getting him. He's a very good representation of Galvatron.

    Seems pretty great for the current FT market! May I ask where you got him from?

    No major issues that I'm aware of. If you transform him there is a section where you might scuff the paint on his chest pretty easily. Watch a guide and take things slowly if you want to transform him.

    Some of the knee ratchets in my figure were overly tight out of the box and I was afraid of plastic breakage since I like to pose and repose my figures a lot. I applied some 100% silicone lubricant to loosen them. Feel perfect for my tastes now.

    While posing him, the tight ratchets in his shoulders may/will cause the armpit and shoulder areas to untab. Pretty annoying but it's a minor consistent issue on every FT-16(M) AFAIK.

    I had some trouble getting his hands/fingers out of his tank treads while transforming him back to robot mode (so I haven't dared try it again). Basically his fingers shift when he's in space gun mode because he's resting on his arms. Not sure if it was because I put his hand into the tread incorrrectly in the first place, so watch out for that.

    He has the same problem as the original had with the torso side panels, but on my M version is a bit worse. The paint also causes some tolerance issues.
