    I've been at it on ebay for months. I drive a truck so usually I put in a high max bid
    like $275 and leave out Monday morning winning w/ a day or two to go. I always come home Thursday night or Friday morning to see "oh no, I suck again!". Not today true believers. Finally an auction that ended on Sunday that I could see through to the end. This is my first Maximus. I won a Japanese Brave Maximus, a nice color scheme to be sure and definitely fits my budget. Just thought I'd celebrate w/ the fandom. TX

    Congrats! Personally I think Brave Max has the nicest colours of the three. The painted windows in city mode look awesome.

    Thank you, and those window fx on the tower put it over the top. I think I might get the custom set of red repro guns to pimp ol Brave Max out.

    Congrats.

    I must admit I envy you a bit, as I'll never own a Max.

    Japanese transformers RID 2000 brave maximus MIB RARE (160166115923)

    That was the ebay item number. Hey Denmark I took your advice into consideration, but at the end of the day I paid the extra money for it. I've waited since 1987 for one of these, besides I won an extra couple hundred dollars betting on the last UFC pay per veiw so I figured what the hay.

    I just went ahead and bought the two repro fort max large guns done in the matching red. This bad boy will look sweet chilling in my display case. Now I can chill till classics 2.0 and animated roll out.

    Thanks everyone. This has been a banner year for all us transfans, I've gone crazy: went to botcon and got all the exclusives to complete my classics collection,
    bought all the planets(even vader ), saw the movie a few times and bought about 14 movie figures that first weekend they were out. I tell you I'm a 32 year old fanboy who kept the faith through the dark ages untill the beast wars got us fiered up again and it feels great to see us all reaping the rewards. This truly is the golden age of the fandom.

    Buy the Reprolabel Fortress Maximus upgrade set for your Brave Maximus now, it's $18 and it has all the stickers they left off of the Brave maximus release but were on the Fortress Maximus release.
    Big difference after you get them on, 2 big sheets of stickers.

    It's not on the reprolabel website you have to request it by email BTW.

    Congrats dude! And yeah, IMO I find Brave Max's colour scheme to be nicer as compared to the original Max!
