    Hey guys, new to to the board. I would like to get some of your opinions about the two. Im looking to purchase one of the two. I like brave better in city mode, but fort maximus colors to me are better. Also fort comes with more items. thanks and opinions will be appreciated.

    theres a lucky draw brave max on ebay right now, kinda expensive, but it has all the bells and whistles that the original has, plus a god sword. better colors too.

    Its tough to say. I personally love the Grand Maximus colors the best, but thats hard to find and expensive. But if you're really choosing between the 2, I would get a mint Fort Max. It's vintage and in the end would give you more bang for your buck if you ever choose to sell it down the line.

    It all comes down to what you can afford. If you can afford it, go for the fort max. But if you're just going to get something to play with and don't care for the colors or care about G1-coolness, then go for the brave. Either way, I think you will be happy.

    Brave Max is usually easier to find and would most likely be the cheapest.

    Not any more ! Its hard to find on ebay at least, and cheap it isnt anylonger either, although it's cheaper than Fort Max. Fort Max is actually easier to find.

    The MISB Brave Max i bought for $399 was the cheapest I could find, however i'll never get it since the seller decided to run away with my money. THe only other i can find misb costs $599.

    Brave Max is the poor man's Fort Max, but yeah, they're all hard to get anymore.

    Brave Max is pretty awesome with the painted windows in city mode, and I prefer the darker colours. Glad I got him years back when they were still only going for $200 or so on Ebay.

    I bought my Brave Maximus back when they were going for $200 MISB. I much prefer the darker color scheme of Brave Maximus.

    Get the blue eyes and cross for him though :D

    Personally I really like the look of Brave Max far more - so that is what I have. I would like more of the accessories (primarily the sword) though.

    I got Brave Max for 9800 Yen plus shipping in 2001. :D 

    At this point, I'd say go Fort Max, but don't come crying to me when a $250 KO comes out next year.

    Oh, as to cost I guess I got one of the best deals from what I have read in this thread. I got mine at I guess it was BotCon 99? I basically bought a set of the convention exclusives (just over $100) and traded them to a dealer for the Max. :)
