    Titans Return Warden

    Update Sept 9th, 2017


    This guy is far from finished, but I'm gonna start posting some in-progress pics here.
    More so as a way to remind and motivate myself to get him complete before I feel too
    jaded about it.

    Leader class Fort Max!

    So Max here is built from a TR Black Shadow base with additional Shapeways parts,
    specifically his chest and shoulders. In order to give him his 'butterfly wing' treads,
    my Hardhead reluctantly volunteered to be a kibble backpack. A Shapeways piece is
    used as an adaptor for that attachment.

    His jet nose is removed from his back, and using new 3D printed attachments, I allowed
    his jet to be either mounted back onto its original spot or onto his forearm, similar to
    Overlord's. I figured that since they are meant to be arch enemies, no harm giving them
    uncomfortable similarities.

    Other changes planned will be revised shoulder pieces to cap the top of his upper
    arms and remove those shoulder guns altogether, a huge warden-worthy hand cannon
    and a suitable paint job.

    Before the detractors come in slamming, I want to say that Max here is inspired by his IDW
    appearance, but he's not meant to be a slavish representation. Hence I left in his wings and jet
    mode. Didn't G1 Maximus have some sort of spaceship flight mode too?

    Lastly, the guns on his legs. Obviously he needs guns on his legs.

    Me too, especially with the CW Megs mold sitting around. It's not perfect but the few modders who used it made it into an AWESOME Max.
