    Apologies if this is the wrong forum, but was just checking so if anybody knew where I could buy replica Fort Max parts?

    I recently bought a "complete" G1 Fort Max off ebay, but he has arrived missing his two big blue guns (they were in the listing photos oddly enough).

    I know that a lot of Fort Max's parts have been replicated over the years, but was wondering where I could buy them.

    Here's a thought, contact the seller and incquire about the missing guns.

    We both have 100% feedback, and he appears genuine. He says he'll have another look again and get back to me. I'd rather not file a dispute because from what I hear Paypal just remove the money outright from him, and I think that would be extremely harsh.


    Thanks for the tip. But is it just me or do the blues not quite match up on the pic below? The double laser seems about right, but the big rifle (the most expensive one!) looks a bit light? Could just be a camera/monitor issue though.

    There's a couple things to keep in mind with that photo. First, yes, camera flash, ISO settings, and other variables can change the appearance of a color in pictures. FunPub's pictures of their exclusives are a perfect example of this, always looking brighter than the real thing. So those parts may all be perfectly color matched.

    The second thing to remember is that when you're working with resin casting, no matter how carefully you mix each batch, the colors will never be exactly the same twice. It may be such a tiny difference that it can't be noticed at all, or it may be easily visible while still being roughly the "right" color. This is just one of those things that has to be accepted with repro parts.

    I would PM Darkov regarding the color shade. I believe I was told they are made to order, and this just looks like a matter of lighting or camera setting.
