    This is a picture of some recently acquired mini Maxes hanging out around a bowl of gross milk candy. :) 

    I bought about 12 or so from a friend in China, but the plastic is fairly brittle, and they weren't packed well, so only 6 survived (yes, this means I have a box of 6 broken mini-fort maxes). I'll probably put 5 of them on Ebay and keep one for myself, I think.

    I wish I had one. They're pretty rare, right?

    How much for a broken one? Can they be glued back together?

    The broken ones range from "incredibly sad" condition to "only one small part is broken and it doesn't affect the transformation" condition. But all of the broken ones are missing the ramps. I may end up auctioning them off as a lot after I sell the ones in better condition.

    Um....what happened:

    "This listing (120052750736) has been removed or is no longer available. Please make sure you entered the right item number.
    If the listing was removed by eBay, consider it canceled. Note: Listings that have ended more than 90 days ago will no longer appear on eBay."

    Maybe sell them here instead and let some fans take a crack at them?

    I had to relist it. See the post above you and the one that you quoted. You're using the old auction link. Try the new one.
    Fans can take a crack at them on Ebay /=) Like I said, half of the ones I ordered broke in transit, so I'm trying to sell them for the most they'll fetch in order to (hopefully) break even, and Ebay is probably the best way to do that.

    I would buy one but the colors are way off from the original. Does repro-labels make a set of labels that are identical to the original Fort Max but smaller to fit this guy?

    Pretty cool looking though ;)

    According to this page, you can email a guy who will sell reprolabels for this toy to you for $8:

    I've got one of those. He is fairly brittle, mine the helipad/double leg cannon that swivels on the left leg broke off.

    However, as a small version of the figure, and much, much cheaper than Headmaster Jr. Fort max, it's not a bad KO.

    I have one that just self destructed. Out of the blue his chest cracked, resulting in the arm falling off and breaking in 3 pieces when it hit the ground.
