    Assuming all three choices were in equally good shape, minty, complete AND cost an equal amount of money, which one would you choose?

    Brave Maximus has the best colors in my opinion. They all look really good, but I'd go for that one if rarity and value weren't an issue (and he had the same accessories minus the shell with Grand Maximus).

    The other two are nice. One color scheme I really like is the 1987 poster Fortress Maximus where he had the dark gray in place of blue.

    I feel that, if you have a choice of one color, original is almost always preferred.

    I prefer Fort Max's colors out of the 3.

    I prefer the colors of Grand, but character/fiction-wise it's Fortress all the way.

    I already have Fort Max and I love originals, but Grand Max does come with the giant sword :D

    I always loved Brave Maximus' colors best. They're far richer, and I love how all the tiny details make him look like an actual city-former. Shame he doesn't come with most accessories though.

    I've always thought Fort Max's colour scheme was the most appealing of the 3.

    Fortress, hands down. Though it's pretty much my personal preference for no other reason than G1 stopped for me after the Rebirth trilogy. Anything after that I haven't ventured out to......yet.

    I already own Brave Max, and even if I could magically swap him for one of the others, I'd stick with Brave, the best looking of the 3 by far.

    Can't beat the "glowing windows" effect!

    If I could lay hands on another, I'd go for Fortress, since his fiction is my favorite of the 3. (and I think he's also the 2nd nicest color wise)

    Well "complete" means he doesn't, since he's missing most accessories even Fortress comes with.

    This puts an interesting dilemma forward considering the Japanese release of Fortress also came with the sword.

    In which case, I'd choose the Takara issue Fort Max as well.

    the Lucky Draw version comes with those accessories, so there's no reason not to discount him since this is a fantasy scenario

    Grand, easily. The Pretender shell, giant sword, all of the other stuff...I do like Brave's deco the best of the three, but Grand is the one I want the most if I had a choice of the three.

    Grand, since the sword alone is never an easy release to get. Plus, Pretender shell! I want this stuff since my Fort Max feels slightly incomplete ever since learning of Grand.

    Plus, I've got Fort and Brave. Brave lacking the guns was pretty darn weak, but I really like his unique colors compared to the way Grand and Fort and pretty much the same scheme rearranged.

    If I didn't have any and since this is fantasy, a Brave with all the other accessories redone to go with his colors would be really cool to see.

    Same! Grand's accessories just win me over! He's a Pretender Headmaster Baseformer! That's just so full of win!

    Fort Max for sure.

    Grand Max is just barely ok.

    Brave Max.... don't know what the fuck they were thinking there... :(

    Which Maximus mold would you prefer?

    Grand Maximus has additional parts the other two don't have with the mold, so I have to go with GM.

    As far as simply the color scheme, Brave Maximus is the better of the three.
