    It's a show off thread I suppose. Not going to hide it and try to name it something it isn't :D 

    Post the specs below, only if you're comfortable....

    1--- Where did you acquire/purchase? (Ebay)
    2--- Approx. year? (2006)
    3--- Complete and all original? (yes)
    4--- Total cost? ($650./shipped)
    5--- Noted flaws? (misplaced stickers, some worn and crooked, loose green door on chest)
    6--- Sun Damage/Yellow at all? (no)
    7--- Electronics work? (Yes) :D

    Damn... didn't know it has electronic? Then again I've never owned one.

    But I did came across one back in 1996 at an antique shop. It was sitting by itself on the corner of a top shelf. I wasn't into FM at the time. I really regret not getting it then because it was sealed in the box for $400-

    This will be quite the exclusive thread but I'm hoping it takes off because I'd love to see it. It would be great if you guys did a meet-up at Botcon and posed all of your Max's

    Have any of you done a complete Reprolabel job on a Fort Max?

    Being as meticulous as I am, it would take me FOREVER! :eek:

    Give me a break! I just want a thread full of Fort Max pics.
    Racist BS! Yep, I think Fort Max is the best. If I'm a racist for that...... Yay me!

    This should renamed "Show me your blank Maximus Figures" and other Max's should be aloud.

    With a collection count of 537 and no Fort Max? Probably mocking me!
    No worries :rolleyes: 

    I'm happy with my collection of around 70, but heaven forbid I show it off!

    :lol 
    What is silly? Asking people to post pics of their Fort Max?
    What's wrong with that? Don't hate if you're too lazy to post a pic or don't have one at all.

    That is just plain :wtf:

    I need a real phone or a working digi camera right now lol.

    I have deep cleaned mine since purchase in late Aug/Sept, but haven't finished my room, so he is on the dresser in the master bedroom :)

    My camera's pretty busted, but maybe later I'll try.

    1--- Where did you acquire/purchase? Found it under a tree in my house
    2--- Approx. year? 1987
    3--- Complete and all original? One of the huge hip cannons got misplaced at some point years ago, which seems impossible given the size of the piece. I may have it somewhere.
    4--- Total cost? Around $100, minus my mom's discount at work
    5--- Noted flaws? the very tip of the radar dish broke off. I was thankfully pretty OCD with stickers even back then.
    6--- Sun Damage/Yellow at all? Nope
    7--- Electronics work? All of them. Every feature is accompanied by awe-inspiring silence.

    Though about snatching the dish and cannon from Brave Max when I first got him when he was new, but now I like him just as much as Fort Max.

    Grand Max? I wish I could toss $2000 at a sword and Pretender shell.

    No, it's silly to limit this thread to just Fort Max and not Brave Max and Grand Max imo.
    THAT is just plain :wtf:

    The reason I got mine out last night was to remember my brother who passed away recently. I got out my trusty ultra soft toothbrush and did my annual dusting. I was going to give him my FortMax.......... I have another beat one that I was going to keep.

    I haven't had 1000 dollars in my hand since I blew all of it at the 2009 BotCon.
