    My graduation is coming up and I will be getting quite a haul of cash, yet I don't know what to spend it on. I have narrowed my choices down to either a Brave Maximus or some figures from Botcon '08. I love the Shattered Glass comic and figures, but from what I've heard it seems to me like Fort Max is one of the best figures to own, despite it being a brick, so I thought I'd come here with my dilema and see what the members of TFW have to say.

    Brave Max is a useless 2 foot tall brick. Get the Shattered Glass figures. I've got a good chunk of them from eBay and they're excellent repaints of their previous toys (as long as you can deal with the concept that Shattered Glass is based on and it had to grow on me).

    get both.....what!?!?!?!?! got to keep it tied lol

    seriously, both have their points. brave max is a big ole b*tch, and i want one of the fort max molds, he looks so much fun. and bonus points for brave max is that his tower windows are painted making his city mode look awsome

    but the 08 shatter glass set is AMAZING, seriously, they picked the perfect mold for them, classic prime looks EVIL and ANGRY, all the time, which was perfect. megs was perfect, gotee hot rod is awsome.

    it is up to you, i would probably get brave max.....i am in the same delima as you, getting a chunk of cash and can't decide what to get.....what ever you get it will be fun

    I'd say Brave Max myself, given the choice in this context.

    However, do you really like the Maximus mold? At the end of the day, it comes down to what you think'll be coolest.

    Also, I don't think a lot of the Shattered Glass toys will be hard to find in the coming years (just maybe a little more expensive in one or two toys' cases).

    depends...if you want a tall 2 foot brick standing there....meh.
    if you want to pose him in city mode with lots of other transformers around him ....awesome!!!

    that shattered glass set SUCKS..~~~~!!!

    the black rodimus and megatron are cool...(bought both of those guys)

    otherwise get brave max

    Throw in another vote for Max!

    Some of the SG figs look okay, but personally, I'm not sold on the mirror universe concept either - I'll happily read a story about it, but I'm not essentially gonna start a new collection based on it, especially when it's all redecos.

    Brave Max, as Red Leader put it, is a fantastic centrepiece fig. He may be a 'brick' (although with articulated shoulders, elbows, wrists and hips he's got more going for him than a lot of smaller figs), but he's the biggest brick you're likely to own.
    I like to have him spend part of his time in city mode swarmed with Micromasters and Minicons (often with Micro Devastator at the front stoop!).
    And if you decide to display him in robot mode, believe me, it'll be a talking point for your visitors whether they know they're into TFs or not. ;)

    I have neither, but would choose figures from the Shattered Glass set. They will be harder to find in the long run... and look like more fun than a giant brick.

    Brave Max. There are some molds every fan needs to have in a collection, and that's one of 'em.

    Having both... I'd say Max if you can find him for cheap.

    Since we're just after BotCon all of the prices are jacked up on the exclusives. Look for them in a month or two to save some green.

    If you don't have the Brave Max mold, get it. The Shattered Glass guys are just repaints.

    So far it's Brave Max:11 and Shattered Glass:6. I have every intent of getting both at some point in my life I just want to know which one I should get at the moment. I already am getting Botcon Jazz and think the concept of Evil Autobots and Heroic Decepticons is pretty cool and would love Jazz to have some company, as for Brave Max I have WST Fort Max but the quality on mine is horrible and I am not pleased.
