    i was just wondering what makes fort max a holy grail? is it because of the character in the show or the toy itself is just so awesome?

    It's because most of us lusted after it mightily back in the day, what with it being the biggest Transformer toy ever made. It's also because in spite of our lust, most of us didn't get one, because it was super expensive (close to $100 if I recall correctly) and our parents wouldn't spend that much on a toy. Now that we're older and have disposable income of our own to blow, it becomes a grail to get that expensive giant toy that we never got as children.

    I think also because it was somewhat rare as far as a lot of people were concerned. When I was a kid collecting G1, for example, the only TF's that I never saw sitting on the shelves of toy stores were Shockwave and Fort Max. The rest were very easy to find, but those two in particular seemed rather elusive for some reason.

    As every one else says, he is the biggest transformer ever made. Maximus towers over Unicron and Primus. In my opinion, his articulation is remarkable considering his size and the fact he is a part of G1. I prefer Brave Maximus’ color scheme. He is definitely one my holy grails but not number. Personally nothing right now tops my Black Big Convoy!

    Yeah, pretty much what everyone else said:

    • Biggest TF ever made -than or now... he towers over today's largest with ease-
    • Most of us couldn't get one because he was so expensive back than that our parents wouldn't buy one.

    Nuff' said really! :D

    Yes, hence the Largest TF ever made comments people have made. He is an awesome toy, and I remember as a kid wanting him so bad. I had three, now I am down to just the one and brave max. He stands about 2 FEET tall. E Omega Supreme is about 16 inches tall I think.

    I long wondered this myself. I guess its because I was out of TFs by then but FM holds no interest for me whatsoever. To each their own.
