I very much doubt a tiny toystore in Sandnessjøen, Norway would get a Fortress Maximus unless it was a wide release. You gotta remember toystores order these things, so that may be why there was never very many of this, at that time, mind bogglingly expensive toy. I remember expensive Star Wars spaceships on 50% off stacked high in the discount bin, so it seems possible whoever did the ordering there had more balls than brains. Eeeh, never heard of anything like an "European Version", though. If they wanna change things, they usually do it with paint. Like the cockpit on Classics Jetfire/Henkei Skyfire.
