    Who is Fortress Maximus? I kept thinking it was Metroplex. The name is stuck in my head but with no face!
    Could somebody post a picture of Fortress Maximus here please? Talking about of coarse the original G1 series. Thank you!

    Nope, no such relationship between them. Look, just read his article:

    Fortress Maximus

    He's also Scorponok's archenemy.

    Fort Max is the biggest Transformer ever made and the most expensive mainline US G1 transformer. be prepared to spend upward of $600-800 for a loose complete one and in excess of $1,000 for a MIB or MISB and heaven help us if one ever gets AFAed!

    I think I'll stick with Metroplex thank you. I don't really like the way Fortres Maximus looks, I just remembered the name and it stuck in my head, but couldn't remember the face.

    It's one hell of an impressive figure to own though. Even people that know of him but have never seen him in person are always awed when they come to my house and see him taking up such a chunk of space and towering over everything else.

    So one day a bunch of TFs no one knew or cared about ended up on some planet named Nebulos having a war. Bad guys for some reason came up with the idea of turning themselves into Decepticon heads and weapons. They beat the Autobots. The Autobots went "hey shit, we want some too" and Spike turned the good guys on the planet into heads.

    The bad guy leader turned himself into the head of their city-base, Scorponok, and beat up more Autobots somehow traveling back to Cybertron despite not knowing how they all got to Nebulos to begin with.

    Cerebros was being emo, so Spike said "Fuck it, gimme a wrench then," and built Fortress Maximus in a couple hours. Then they went and beat up Scorponok.

    Cerebros was still emo, Spike had metal jammies that allow him to become a contortionist, and a new era of peace was brought to Cybertron having almost nothing to do with Optimus, Galvatron, or even Rodimus.

    The end. End of series. That's how G1 ended in America.

    Goodnight.
