So, Fortress Maximus is getting reissued, and there's a lot of happy collectors around here. Justifiably so, as since I joined the community, Fort Max's name is generally spoken with some degree of respect and reverence, and many, many members have listed him as a personal grail. Myself, I'm not too into him, not enough to justify spending $350 on a pre-order. I mean, he is a fantastic toy - no doubt about that. I've actually had my hands on one courtesy of a co-worker who shared that he had a Fort Max collecting dust (along with a Scorponok) in his attic. He was just going to give them to his son to play with when his son got old enough, and had no idea of the value. No, it wasn't complete - it was missing a few small accessories I think (both Headmasters were intact), but it seemed in pretty good condition, with minimal to no yellowing. And no, I didn't offer to buy it off him for cheap - he was pretty impressed that Fort Max was actually so valuable (his eyes really popped when he did an eBay search ), and decided to hold on to it for a bit (imagine that!). But what I'm wondering is, what is the draw of Fortress Maximus to collectors? Is it because it's one of the biggest toys out there? The difficulty in obtaining one? Was it a toy you wanted as a child, but never got? I'm sure there's plenty of reasons out there - I'd love to know what it is about this particular toy that engenders such excitement among the community.
