    Main concern is the weight. This thing can weight 30kg and that would make transforming and posing a chore. Also, how insanely strong must be the ratchets (especially on the hips) to make him stable?

    This bot is just too damn big ... feels like I should grab my pitchfork and gather villagers to slay this abomination before it leaves the womb ... :)

    You can win back some shelf space by displaying other figures on, in and around Fortress Maximus. I can’t wait for this figure, lucky me I have space for two of these so I hope they make Scorponok too.

    Are the panels behind his arms in bot mode cartoon accurate, an homage to the G1 toy, or sheer design necessities (apologies if it's already covered)?

    There’s an old saying on Nebulos: Fortress Maximus wasn’t built in a day.

    If you look at Titan Returns cartoon, i would say this Fort Max is still to small. :) 

    Check OS MP-10 of 71 cm, then it's fine. And it's Fanstoys we're talking about.
    Yes transforming the os mp-10 is a bitch, but fort Max just lie on his back. Don't think it's to hard to just let him fall on his back. :D

    I think it's the perfect size. Anywhere from 42 in to 48 in I'd be happy! I don't want something that is just 2 in taller than the other big Bots. If you do that there's no point in even making a city bot that's an MP.. the city mode would be crap and usless. Besides im sure FT can dole out a smaller variation at some point or some other company can..

    But then, to go back to robot mode you have to lift him up...

    So glad I can just get Head. All I need to be happy is some head. So glad that’s an option. Especially since I need all the leaders of all the teams

    That’s going to be the key to displaying him to the......max. Off on its own he is not going to show off his size. It needs some scaling with it
