    Unless thats just a stand in photo, I see no paint apps/tampos on Fort Max.....so, maybe we are "bringing back 87" in a big way....we will be putting stickers on that guy...hopefully that pic was taken before the paint apps to the eyes were done :) ......but there is the Master Sword!!!!

    Much agreed.....while I appreciate the nostalgic aspect of putting stickers on, I actually don't enjoy it...because I never get them quite right.....lol...oh well...maybe this isn't the final final version...though we are getting kind of close to when we would be seeing photos of the final product, so....oh well..Im still pumped!

    Takara probably figured, "ok guys...you wanted Fort Max for Encore line? We aren't going to make it easy for you...no Tampos...get your ass to work!" :)

    I remember spending a whole evening stickering up Fort Max as a kid and enjoying the process.

    I really hope there aren't any tampos or pre-applied stickers on Fort Max. This is a grail for me that I've been anticipating for a long time and I want the complete experience of putting the stickers on, correctly, myself. And this figure is expensive enough, so I'd rather not have the added expense of buying a Reprolabels set to replace pre-applied stickers and cover tampos.

    Forget the experience. I want him to look great and not have any peeling stickers in 10-15 years.

    This is my hope, too.

    Maybe the real toy have the tampographs. Our hopes aren't destroyed until we see the real toy!

    The article mentions that Encore Fort Max will have cardboard inner packaging like Car Robots Brave Max.

    It also mentions that GT-R Maximus will have a new head design which is yet to be revealed.

    So freaking excited for the masterpiece cassettes. They look amazing. Nice touch to see that Rumbles weapons can store in the pile drivers and not just Soundwaves feet. And Maximums looks so.. bland without his decorative stickers.. interesting.

    That confirms Fortress Maximus master sword.

    I have lost my hope/excitement for the Prime line, and I don't like the upcoming beast themed thing going on. Although I do understand I'm not the target audience of it.

    As Fort Max is one of my favorite characters (thanks to marvel), I'll probably get the GT Max if the head looks good.

    I agree with this but I think the stickers are unavoidable. The best solution, imo, would be if reprolabels does (or already has) a set right away so I can buy that (or a couple sets) out of the gate and hang onto the original stickers for later.

    I agree. As soon as stickers start peeling it makes you want to rip it off and apply new ones :mad

    On a side note, I've been planning from day one to paint the eyes myself. No sticker for that, thank you. Even applied as carefully and correctly as humanly possible, I don't think the Max eye stickers look good.

    I still think they could have done better on the MP tapes other than laker beak, who is a, well, masterpiece.
    The fact that the piledrivers are pretty much maiden Japan's design doesn't help. And with that, all bought.
