    Anyone know of a good place to find a Brave Maximus? Cheapest and OR most reliable? Seems everytime I find one on EBay the price goes from in my range to out of my range in mere 10 minutes before the auction is up. I should've never traded my Fort Max as a kid for that damn Sega Genesis :(

    well, it depends on what your budget is, but i doubt you could find one for less then 300, maybe less if the person didnt know what they had...

    Are you look for a Japanies Brave Max? Because a Korean version gose for less than the Japanies version. Going for the Korean version may help keep him in your budget range.

    There's no version from RiD. It didn't pass safety laws. Does the CR Brave Maximus go for more than $400 now? Jeez.

    He's not just going to magically be up on ebay all the time, but as long as you have a bit of patience you can get either version for $250-300 complete without box there. They don't all sell for $400+ (just silly imo, it's not vintage!). Some do, but others don't...I'd say it's worth the couple of hundred $ to be patient with it and that finding BIN ones soon after they're listed is your best bet.

    I just got a Korean one a month ago from ebay on a $215 best offer (plus $40 shipping), including two black custom double-blasters. I'd just missed BINing a Jap one with box for $250 the day before that too.

    As outlined in my last post, I wouldn't really say he's actually worth that much. A set of crazy people with too much money that just got into TFs are burning big cash on him and other 'must have' TFs but these people will be exhausted eventually, not to mention he still often sells for *only* $250-300.

    Wow! I must have got a deal and didn't know it. I nabbed Brave Maximus MIB two years ago for only $185! Or is it only the original Fortress Maximus that's going for so much?

    See, that's the 'joke'. Some people are starting to grab up Brave Maximus as if he were Fortress Maximus. It's like an artificial (but not universal, my $215 last month isn't a bad increase from $185 two years ago) price increase/skyrocket by association.

    I paid $350 for mine. I paid a little more I know but I wanted him. I would not have paid much more than I did though. I have absolutely no patience so I am willing to pay a little more rather than waiting.

    Compared to the $500-600 prices some crazy people are paying, that's not even that bad. Still sort of high to me, but obviously not to others out there.
