    I just wanted to know if you have him, what do you think? Is he worth picking up? Finally, any Pros and Cons to the figure to look out for? Thanks.

    I got him about a week ago and I think he's great. I picked him up at a flea market for $5 and is 100 times better than the one that came out a few years ago. The plastic quality is very good and the detail matches that of the original Fort Max. Almost as if the took the original and shrunk him down to 6 inches. The stickers are the only down side on him, but you can always get repros or just realign them. The tower has no canopy, just the seat where Spike would go. The head doesn't transform, but, again, has great detail and resembles the original. Theres even a Spike as the 'post' to fit the bigger head! Here's my pics:

    My WSTF collection NEEDS Fort Max!

    Nice pics, Optimus8404, do you have pics of him with any other WSTF's (or heck, anyone, really) to compare him with? How tall is this one?

    I know there are a few size versions of him, so if you are looking for one, check the size.

    It's nice. Only complaint would be the non-transforming heads. I just got mine today at this cheapo toy store at the mall in Denton. Here's a pic next to WST prime for scale.

    I'm thinking the seven inch might be a bit more to scale with the WSTF's. Currently, this one isn't even Micro Machine scale.
