    What you guys think of him compared to Fort Max? How much would you pay for one? I just got one for 500 USD MIB.

    Alot more color rich as compared to Fortress Maximus, which is too bland for my liking.

    I paid less than USD $150 for mine (still MISB to date) but that was back in Car Robots 2000 days. The going rate's about USD $500 for MIBs (more or less) so it will be safe to say that you're paying just about market rate. :D

    Of all the Maximus' (Maximi?), he's by far my favorite deco. I love the window lighting and the stronger color scheme.

    I got mine during the Car Robots days ($125 shipped) and got the color matched repros of the large guns and Repolabels of the decals. He's a major display piece and a great Transformer.

    I own an opened, but boxed Brave Maximus that I purchased MIB during Car Robots. I love the thing. I never owned Fort Max, and I certainly never owned Grand Max, so I don't miss the "missing" accessories, and I love Brave Max's color scheme.

    I was able to get one from a great guy here on the forums for $400 last year and love him. I'd say he's one of the few G1 toys that stands the test of time. The colors on Brave really help him out too. I'd see if you can't find repros of the two missing guns in red as they really help. The guy that sold it to me gave me those with it so I'm not sure where you'd find them. Try the radicons section.

    I got my Brave MAx at SGD 800, quite expensive ,,I know..

    Before that I had examine another BM, it has yellowing on the right chest cover (grey)..And then, I bought a GM Pretender Shell, thinking to treat my BM as GM, but I know I am not getting over it, that is why I still look for another GM..

    Does Brave maximus have many accessories? What does/doesn't he have when compared to fort max? I just want to check if mine's complete even if the seller described it was.

    Brave Max comes with a city map, Cerebros, Spike and a radar dish. He may also come with a small gun for Cerebros but I don't remember.

    Brave Maximus - Transformers Car Robots - TFW2005

    What's not to like here? :) 

    I like both FM and BM for different reasons and for some of the same reasons. Awesome baseformer is awesome :)  I like the blandness of FM, as it makes him look really Cybertronian city-esque; I like BM as he is a really colorful city - much like Earth cities. :)

    I will always hate myself for not getting one for 80 when I had the chance back before Armada hit.

    I bought TFC Reissue Jazz and Prowl instead.

    I'm a god damned idiot.

    Out of all the Maximus's, Brave Max is definitely up there as one of the best though Grand Max just slightly beats Brave Max in terms of accesories, age and rarity.

    Fort Max is the easiest to obtain while Grand Max is the hardest, Brave is in between so you can get a pretty good idea on the sweet deal you got

    A completely white FM is very tough to find.
