    No, because:

    #1: Kabaya isn't Takara
    and
    #2: It isn't the anniversary yet, negating the point of "doing it for the anniversary."


    They might do Fort Max or they might not. But if they are going to, don't worry, this isn't it.

    I think the Encore is having issues because of safety tests like the drop test.
    Unless I'm totally wrong and Takara has total control over the situation.

    Hope not.
    Kabaya Fortress Maximus will be a good toy (and I am thinking about buy it) but isn't G1 Fortress Maximus. The fandom "need" is for a G1 reissue, not a homage toy.

    The drop test is an American thing.

    Encore is a Japanese thing.

    Has no effect.

    Damn forgot that... Oh well the odds of a stateside release were unlikely anyways.

    doubtful at best, they want an encore fort max, it would be the original mold
