    Following on from the "Show your Fortress Maximus" thread from LifePincher 3 weeks ago, I thought it would be keen to follow up with a "show your Brave Maximus" offering.
    [​IMG]

    1--- Where did you acquire/purchase? (BBTS)
    2--- Approx. year? (2002)
    3--- Complete and all original? (yes, case sealed. I bought 2!!!)
    4--- Total cost? ($100 each and then shipping, but I got them for US domestic shipping through the military)
    5--- Noted flaws? (lack of guns, haha!)
    6--- Sun Damage/Yellow at all? (nope, sort of N/A on this guy too)

    Selfishly, I'm gonna use this opportunity to ask a few questions: In preparation for this thread I've finally opened by Brave Maximus (what? that only took 9 years!) and I'm a little dismayed about a few things. Did he not come with his big gun? Or any of the small little robots that came with Fortress?

    As far as accessories, he came with Cerebros' head and gun, the little radar and the two ramps. I was a little confused as to why the two ramps seem to have different coloured blue plastic? Thought this was a little odd and asymmetrical? Is this normal, or a quirk of the Sonoking release?

    If anyone wants to do a Grand Maximus thread in a few weeks that would be awesome to see, but I won't be able to post in it:(

    The main release of Brave didn't include the big guns or Gasket and Grommet.

    nah, the release never had as many accessories, partly why I find it unfair of people to compare Brave with Fortress.

    Awesome, and the different coloured blues on the two ramps is normal?

    A bit disappointed to find out my Fort Max has lost his eye stickers somewhere along the way, but in the 7/8 years he's been in storage I'mjust glad he didn't yellow horrifically like my Original Ratchet and Jetfire.

    Also raised a smile, found two Erector business cards in the Brave Max box, I imagine Locustreign or Big Pete put them there when I tried to sell Brave Max at AA '10 / '11.

    I don't recall any asymmetrical ramps colors, but I may not be understanding exactly what you mean.

    Mine is Takara, which I got as a gift from my gf right when it came out. I opened it right away since I lack your legendary patience.

    I love Brave Max! I've had Fort Max since age 10, and that sentimentality is the only thing that makes him edge out Brave for me. The lit windows are so cool and really do a lot to make a convincing city tower.

    The lack of guns and robot is a bit weak, if only because I also expected them to be there and I'd have liked to see them in the new color scheme. I know guns were made as some sort of promotional item, just as the Grand Max sword was rereleased in ways that were always too pricey for me. Still, Brave Max is really fantastic on his own and completely covered in guns already.

    Original questions added to thread.

    By asymmetrical ramp colouring, I mean the blue on the big, covered ramp from the back of his right arm has blue plastic the colour of his forearm, wheras the ramp on his left arm has the darker blue the colour of his shoulders / fists.

    That's a good deal. I sold my spare MISB korean Brave Max off last year to a local for $300 and I wasn't budging on price.

    The plural of Brave Maximus would be Brave Maximi (possibly Maximii).

    Did Brave Max come with a Master Sword or was that only Grand Max? Was there an sword released later for brave max, or am I thinking of a third-party item?

    Also brave maximus shortens to BM, which is pretty unfortunate.

    The Japanese release of Fortress Maximus also came with a master sword.
