    So are we all in agreement that Optimus Maximus is the Fall of Cybertron Battle station shown previously in the issue of Game Informers?

    The clues are obvious.

    • There’s no other Transformers outlet out there that hints at such a large figure.

    • The only probable market for it would be in the Fall of Cybertron Generations line.

    Which leaves me to speculate that while coming up with this figure, Hasbro did not have the rights to “Fortress Maximus” anymore so instead of going through all the trouble and $$$ of obtaining it again they deduced that Naming him Optimus Maximus would have a larger return in sales. Yet I’m certain that High Moon will still call him Fortress Maximus.

    Plus with of the hype of Grimlock being one the 8 confirmed Generation’s figures what about the insecticons? Those “NOT INSECTICONS” got a lot of love last year which can’t sit too well with Hasbro. So if nothing else could we see some Generations insecticon scouts on the horizon?
    Remember “8 confirmed” doesn’t mean 8 is the limit. So what’s Hasbro to do in 2013 with movie likely to happen that Summer?
    Your thoughts please…

    It's going to be so cool getting city bots again. With the way they make toys now a days these have so much potential.

    I'm hoping Optimus Maximus is just a renamed Fort Max.

    It's probably just some Optimus Prime battle station thingy.

    I have to admit, I'm confused as to why it's OPTIMUS Maximus, but if it's a city bot-esque set that isn't just a large version of Optimus, I want it. It would be awesome if it turned out it could double as a Classics Fort. Max.

    I'm guessing it'll be a Star Convoy-ish city bot. :)

    This is all just a bunch of insane ramblings with little basis in reality. Optimus Maximus is a Prime Cyberverse playset, NOT Generations. And evolution of what they did with the Ark in DOTM. Also the hints about Prime season 2 is that it moves into space for some of it. In other words they'd need some sort of ship, which is what this could very well be. And Grimlock isn't confirmed, that was speculation. They showed Jazz only, and said 8 figures would be made from FOC in Generations. Which are probably all deluxes BTW.

    Where in that article did it even mention Optimus Maximus? All I saw was level artwork.

    The people that saw it at Toy Fair didn't sound blow away by it either...

    I hope it will be a Fort Max homage but it will more than likely be yet another Optimus that transforms into a base.

    I still find it amusing that Hasbro is going to name a toy after Jupiter.

    To be frank, I agree.

    Probably because the orginal Star Convoy toy had a "base mode" that was meant to interact with the micromasters of the time.

    I doubt it'll be connected to FoC (beyond those already existing connections between Prime and FoC that is). I also don't think it'll be Optimus Prime. It's either a re-imagining of a past base-bot, or an entirely new character all-together. The addition of Optimus to the name is, imho, most likely to create some name recognition with the kids. Most especially if this is meant as a homage to Fort Max, who hasn't been relevant since Robots in Disguise.

    Also, there's absolutely NO way he'll be a repaint of the DotM ark. Not only would that make no sense, the simple fact that we know Optimus Maximus has his own bot-mode makes that impossible. Let alone all the other details in the description that makes that idea impossible.

    Outside of the FMH description of it, I haven't seen anybody talking about it....link?

    Did they state what the bot mode resembled specifically? Better yet has it officially been started what line it falls under?

    If not I'll dismiss that crazed rambling comment as temporary insanity.

    Do your homework before you antaganize a thread.

    I never said that Grimlock was a definate, I said that there was a lot of hype for him being one of the 8. To which I was to saying not to rule out the possibility of insecticons as well.

    I swear the tention in here is rediculous sometimes. In this threads case highly unwarrented.

    I see no basis in making comments such as “insane ramblings” when your “speculations” on the matter haven’t been confirmed either.

    I thank you for voting on the poll either way and I hope you have a good day.
