    I liked the M-version better too. It just clicks.

    Having owned both, I prefer 16M over the original purple. But I also regret selling on my original purple version. I'll probably try and pick him up again when the XTB eventually comes out. Assume there will be people looking to offload at that point.

    Transformations attempted: 0.

    It must be time to bite the bullet soon!

    I only have the purple one but this is still one of my favorite figures. XTB's might come along and be more poseable, but will it be heavy enough to kill a man if you hit them with it?

    I never was able to get on board with the "M" version. I've got a couple copies of The Movie and in all of them he's clearly purple. The only time he looks blue-ish is when he's in shadow or in a really dark scene (like inside Unicron).

    Won't lie and say I haven't been tempted though. :)

    I found the purple... too purple? To bright I think. The M-version was a good alternative for me.

    Owned both Purpletron and M version. Definitely prefer the M model.
    Really wish I had picked up the Toy deco when it was 1st released too.

    i know this is a long shot but does anyone have a spare left hand for the normal FT16? I asked Fanstoys for a replacement and they sent me the FT16M. When i told them they sent the wrong one they said itd been too long (i thought theyd reissued FT16 recently but anyway).

    Looking at @Teletran-1's records the original Sovereign hasn't been reissued since 2018. Even if he accidently deleted it on the list it would still be in the thread update log.

    Sorry I can't help.

    Oh yeah, I had it in the upcoming reissues and assumed after it came out and thought I moved it over but I’ll get it in.

    Still dunno why ppl give his alt mode crap,I totally understand if you display your stuff in alt mode but in Bot mode,even though it's an old ass mold with MP-10 era articulation,still looks good to me to this day. I can't wait to finish up the trio soon and ride off to the Sunset.

    (*Fun Fact: But when I had Barney Sovereign,that was probably the moment I realized transforming some shit wasnt fun lol)

    I don't even think it has this MP-10-ish articulation. Strong joints, all hold well, double-jointed.
    Most FT releases nowadays don't have double jointed elbows. Sovereign's just missing an ab crunch, but don't really needs it and
    oozes so much bad-assery!
