    A third party Fortmax will be coming soon!

    http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=13026548860

    Pre-order is on Taobao.com now, the seller didn't leave any info of the pricing (or google doesn't translate it properly). The silhouette looks pretty amazing, but I can't tell whether this is a remake or a redesign of the G1 toy.

    They have a product code G-2, can anyone shed me some light what G-01 is?

    Is the world ending? Isn't that just the G1 box art, though? I doubt it'll be as big as the original, or we'll be paying some serious moolah.

    ...I wonder if this is the long-rumored KO Fort Max.

    Also, apparently Chrome thinks "rumoured" is a misspelling.

    For any kind of new Fort Max? I thought that was implicit.

    Soooooo sick of silhouette teasers.
    Wish they would announce products when they are actually, you know...products.

    Its been confirmed that one of the KO groups is working on an HQ KO of G1 Fort MAX, until I hear other wise I'm just gonna assume this is that.

    (That And I just don't get the appeal of Fort Max)

    Yeah there was talk about a repro fort max and Grand Maximus at around $400.00-$500.00 at KO toys some weeks back.

    I think people would happily buy all 3 of them if they all came with all the Grand Maximus bits and the quality was great.

    There was also talk of it maybe either being full scale or smaller that the originals. a smaller one might open the door to an evil 'Nemesis' base one too which might be a bit of a risk on a full scale one.

    Personally if it's just Fort Max I'd welcome a downscaled one - if it's Grand Maximus I'd like a full Balls to the wall repro even if it does cost $400.00/$500.00

    If it was me though I'd probably have started with faking Black Zarak to blow the cobwebs out of the process of making such a huge toy.

    Because your IP is located in the US and we don't spell it that way.

    I'm really not that interested in this since I already have a Fortress but it will be interesting to see what comes out of this.

    If they make it the same size as scorponok then I'm pretty damn sure almost everyone will want it...
