TransformersAsia has updated with details of the Asia-exclusive promotional item coming out in conjunction with the release of Encore Fortress Maximus. Forgoing the usual trend of releasing a commemorative coin, Asian retailers will be giving away a special Fortress Maximus headphone jack with the release of Encore Fortress Maximus. It plugs into normal headphone ports and allows you to "Head On" your phone, iPod or Music Label Soundwave!

TransformersAsia is reporting that some retailers will be giving away a head phone jack that's shaped like Fort Max's head as a promotional item with their Encore Fortress Maximus releases. It looks like a simple pass-through for your tablet/phone that allows you to put a Fort Max head on your mobile devise. Kind of neat looking IMHO.

EDIT: Yea I was using my phone to post and kinda biffed the title; if it's deemed newsworthy can the Mods give the title a little fix?

I was all excited that RK would give me a couple with my preorders then I realised I have an IP5 and it would look kinda stoopid....
Liminality
Plug it into MP Soundwave!
Sludge
Kind of odd. But I'd be lying if I said I didn't kind of want it.

Awww damn. I wish you hadn't said that. 'Cos better than plugging it into MP Soundwave would be plugging it into Music Label Soundwave. Dammit. Now I want one, but I don't want to buy another Maximus just for the pass-through...

Brilliant idea for a freebie.

This would be great if the headphone jack on my iPod weren't at the bottom of it.

Someone please sell me theirs. This is too awesome not to have.

I preordered Fort Max from BBTS. Am I getting this?
johndoe4880
i like to know to if i'm going to be getting it too. from bbts
Star Saber
Wait, they didn't go for an Arms Micron? That would have been the perfect opportunity to make FM a Targetmaster!
Dinodigger97
Haaaaa, that's cool!
shiftypenguin
Ha! Cute. Too bad I don't own an iPhone.
Batman
Is Robot Kingdom the only place that gets these freebies? It really feels like they are. I guess I will have to get one of these on Ebay.
opt1musaber
Weird extra.

It'd be so rad if when you plug him in, he'd go "Head on!" through your phone's speakers!

Also, could someone educate me on what a pass-through is? not having much luck Googling what that is, if it even is a thing.

pretty sure it means that it has a jack on it so that when you plug it in you can still use it as headphones
PrimulArchangel
I preordered from TFsource , anyone know if they will be giving these out as well since they are pretty much buying them from Asia.. I hope they will be giving them out .
grimlock1972
cool freebie but i'd likely leave it in the package for lack of desire to use it.

This is INCREDIBLY stupid....

Its just a jack extension which means the signal passes through it. Its really nothing more than a fancy extension cord for your headphone jack...

You don't need an iphone, it will work with any headphone jack of corresponding size. All this is, is a headphone extension jack.

Oh I'd use it...I'd use it so hard! If I can get my hands on one of these, its going on my tablet and I'm gonna find a pic of his body that I can use for a wallpaper...it will be awesome!

Since I've ordered other MPs from BBTS with none of the coins, I guess its a safe bet that Fort Max Im getting from there wont have this. It's a nice little addition, but Im not going to lose sleep if I dont get one.

Was essentially what I was getting at in my post, too...

Seriously, if anyone ends up with one of these and doesn't want, let me know...

That's neat, but I don't understand why there are always Asia-exclusives for everything. I take the trouble of importing things from Japan (which, to be fair, is the cheapest option for me, and not actually that troublesome), but Japanese and western releases never get any of these special bonuses. At least, not this often (i.e. every bloody time). It gets kind of annoying. And as much as I'd like them, I'm not going to go out of my way to get them. It just seems like something that should be packed in with Japanese releases as well.
tfwAutobotProwl
looks good. doubt ill get one thru my bbts order but if I do my some chance ill be happy. might try and track one down if I don't get it with Fort Max
Dracomancer
And I thought the coins were non sequitur...

I likewise wonder whether I'm going to receive one with my FM. Since all the reissues originate in Asia, shouldn't all FMs include one?
PrimulArchangel
Wouldn't surprise me if they do get them with their fort max orders but instead of passing them to the people that ordered max they will go and list them on the site for sale lol

I'm guessing that BBTS will get these but will not include it with Fort Max and sell them separately.
PrimulArchangel
I just heard from tfsource about these. They said these will not come with fort max because they are getting the Takara Tomy release. The max head only comes with the Hasbro Asia release. So I'm sure the same goes with BBTS since they will get the takara Tomy version as well.
Stepper
The headphone jack plug sure look cute though
T-Logicon
Would love to have this. Id leave it in the package for on the wall display maneuvers.

That sucks, for such a high priced guy a freebie would've been appreciated.

So far they have given me free mini camera(with PE12), free coin and wst six shot and now 2 free plugs.
Stepper
That freebies is sure will be a bonus if we get it,if not,i guess i can still live without it.
