    Yup. Classics Fort Max version 2.0 is in the works.

    And yes, that's the same head. When I sold the first one on eBay, I retained the original Anime-style head, and the buyer just got the Drillbit-turned-Cerebros noggin.

    Still lots to do, but he's coming along well I think. I changed a few things up this time. I've added "chipped" paint details and "scratches", as well as painting it a bit differently in general.

    As always, comments and critiques are welcome :)

    Thanks! I look forward to seeing yours. I did my original version back in the late Fall, early Winter.

    The head is actually a Superion head :D

    If you've got a spare Double Dealer head (or KO version) kicking around, that's also a good starting point for a fort max head. :)

    Smog: I never thought about Doubledealer, but you are right. It would indeed be a suitable starter head.

    frenzy_rumble: I got mine from there as well *lol*

    There's still a chance for me to pick up a local Metroplex and get going... only problem is that it's $60, and that's the sale price (go Sweden!)...

    Okay, I've added a couple of new images. As you can see, I've given Max some Omega prime hands, which I'll be altering a bit before repainting. I picked up a lot of RiD Magnus parts to get them.

    And in a bit of a "eureka" moment, I noticed that the carrier-ramps might work with Max as well, and sure enough, they will. :)

    I found a busted up old Doubledealer at a local Value Village, and it made me think of Fort Max right away. It's pretty much exactly the right size for Cybertron Metroplex (I tried it as soon as I got home).

    The only reason I got a Metroplex was because your Fort Max custom was that awesome. I had to try to make one for myself! :)

    These "Cybertron/Classics" FM bashes always look so nice. Yours is no different in that regard. Great work man :thumb

    Glad to see you back at it corvus. Not sure if you can top your Fort Max 1.0 cuz it was really nicely done but I look forward to see what you have up your sleeve for 2.0.

    My thanks to you all :) 

    VP: I dunno if I can top that one either *lol* He did turn out really nice, and when i decided to sell him off I made it a pretty slavish homage. I'm keeping this one for myself, and so I've decided to change a few things up. Not majorly so, but it will be noticeable.

    Thanks again :)
