    Hi,
    Just curious to see how much a Fortress Maximus should go for.
    I am intersted in buying one from a local.
    Looks like it has none of the accesories or weapons.

    Any questions I should ask or stuff I saw look out for while looking at Fortress Maximus???
    I never own one, touch one, or saw one in person.

    Thanks.

    yes, he is stripped down to no weapons.
    headmaster spike is present.
    assumed nothing is broken and average joints....how much is he worth?

    its a pain to find all the weapons. is it worth the $$$ to buy a complete/near complete???? i know its a lot of money but all the little weapons add up as well.

    your thoughts???

    In the long run, probably cheaper to buy it complete.

    From what I have seen on ebay and what others have stated it is less expensive to buy most transformers complete than to piece them together. Fortress maximus appears to be ne exception

    If it were me I would try to get one around 400-500 bucks and complete

    make sure he has not yellowed

    my 2 cents

    peace

    I think you're a little confused. Beyond the accessory guns, Maximus had an entire arsonal that is part of him, hip guns, forearm guns, backhand guns, knee guns, that can all be removed, but are part of him, and can be either deployed or not.

    It's not that uncommon to find a Maximus body missing his hip guns, which are a pain to track down, and would greatly reduce it's value.

    Also, you run into a slight advantage with Maximus in that some of his parts have been reproduced, making it pretty easy to get. Personally, I own Brave Maximus, who doesn't come with all the extras that Fortress did, but I got reproduction parts (and in the right color to match Brave Max) of the larger guns that I was missing.

    Not quite that big. Fortress Maximus stands 21" (53cm) tall.
