    This is a commission piece, the client wanted a IDW/Last Stand of the Wreckers Fort Max. Not much to go on so we decided that he would be a Mobile Assault Tank.
    I used the very versatile Cyberton Metroplex. I hate this mold, its so lanky and skinny. But I managed to bulk up his midsection, remove those nasty feet and give him some added firepower.
    I used shots from Spotlight ARCEE and of LSOTW comic to try and come up with something close. Also gave him a Battle Station mode.
    Thanks for looking!

    Energon Barricade nose for the chest piece? Friggin' genius I say!

    He looks awesome man! Dirty and war torn, just as he should be! The face looks stoic and weary too, love it!

    I remember thinking Fortress Maximus near-death body would be integrated into Garrus-9 to create...well Fortress Maximus.....
    Guess that aint gonna happen though. He basically died or what? I know they just offed like the entire 90s Autobots by blowing up Kimia.....
    This is great work !

    Spoilers?
    No. He's just really messed up. Quite gruesome when they show him actually.

    That aside... He looks BAD ASS. The bot mode's incredible. Really dig how a few changes made him into a much better vehicle than Cybertron Metroplex. IMO, I think the figure was pretty good, but his alt mode was silly... oh and like you said, the full "battle mode" he has is very lanky. DAMN I want a Fort Max custom like this... need... moneys... =(

    Any chance you can put a few pics in a lighter background? IT's hard to see a lot of details on his limbs... seeing as you modded those, I'd be curious what other parts were also used.

    That... is... :D  I totally agree w/ you regarding the Cybertron Metroplex mold - as a stand-alone figure, it absolutely sucked but it sure makes great kitbashing fodder. What I like the most about your LSOTW Fort Max is the grittiness of him. It's like he's been in a thousand wars' & he's still going strong. Yup, Methinks the client is gonna be pretty happy with the end results! :thumb
