    Yep, i've also just pre ordered the head.
    Hope to get a spike with it so Cerebros has a mask.
    Fortress of the japanese don't have a mask.

    Sweet Jesus. Is FT 40's alt about the same size as this if we are going by the render?

    Love these comparison shots, I have already pre-ordered the body and head. Im just going to have to make a new display case to properly showcase him.

    Has there been no digi bashes yet on and of the pic's??

    I really would like @dalianjj to shed more light on this. There more i think about this i really wonder what something like this will weigh. I think he needs a locking mechanism in his hips similar to FT Stomp to further ensure stability. The good thing is fortress maximus is very evenly distributed in terms of proportions, and doesn't have a backpack so i doubt he'll be top or back heavy.

    Sn: Go Ahead and reveal Zarak already....you know you want to!

    Lewin-01 is around 16 lbs, is fairly dense at about 28" tall and contains diecast. I guess this could be around the 20 lbs mark. But only one person on this thread knows and they have been very quiet about it.

    Changed hight from 36

    Agreed. He's being particularly coy with this one imo.

    20 lbs is Haslab Unicron. I'd be really surprised if this one is less than 40.

    40 idk, at the weight I dont see its legs supporting its own weight. If it was 40 they should call him FortyMax, that all makes sense now that its FT 40, maybe that joke has been made already. 30 lbs max, final bet, the only logic I have behind that is that fortmax is for the most part a bunch of ramps and hollow cubes/boxes and just "lays down". Where as Unicron carries his entire altmode shell on the bot.

    I did some math and assuming TR Fortress Maximus weights 3kg and is 60cm tall, scaling to the 115 cm quoted for this one gives a weight of more than 21kg, or more than 45lbs. For him to be significantly lighter we should assume more hollowness and thinner/less dense plastic than Hasbro's titans. Logic dictates that this should be the case, but we are talking about FT, a company famous for the heft of their figures. I guess we can only wait and see.

    They will have to make some custom diecest joints for him im sure.. each click of a joint is gonna sound like a 22 going off lol.. this is going to be the first of the citybots im sure they will go all out... imagine if they sold us a 1200 POS.. the backlash would be swift and ruin their rep. Let alone their shot to do the other city bots and have em sell.. if they pull this first citybot off with no major hitches then its god status for em.. I hope they do it right.

    Police: We got a call of several shots fired in this area, have you seen or heard anything?

    Me, Sorry I was trasforming my 4ft tall transformer.

    A big toy show is coming next month in Shanghai. Forget TFCon, this is the real one, I am betting we will see an early prototype of this thing.

    I just measured my Lewin Atlas and with its legs in the most upright position it is 28" to the very tippy top of the antenna.

    Thank you

    That would be awesome!

    I was thinking about the ramps on the Fort Max.. make more sense to put steps so you can pose figures on em.. the side ones at least.

    I’ll buy that for a dollar........

    I’m also strangely curious about the Jamaican coffee beans barrel in the background, is FortMax on the hustle?

    You are correct, I only divided 71 cm by 2 and not 2.54 and never clicked in my brain.

    Got a link by chance? There was one there in December last year but haven't found evidence of one this year.

    Spend a couple months away from the board and the hobby loses its goddamn mind.

    It's not an exact parallel, but the high end for modern GunPla use an internal metal frame for both stability (and looking cool). FT-FM having an inner metal frame that the plastic wraps around isn't an improbable way of handling the stability given the relative simplicity of the transformation. Would really only need it from the hips down as the upper body/arms won't need to deal with the same weight constraints.

    As much as I'd like to give ShowZ a small 3 year loan, until an MSRP is announced pre-ordering seems a bit pre-mature as they'll almost certainly be another flood of openings as people rush in/out when the price point is confirmed. What would really be sadistic is if this guy was only available mail-in with clipped proofs of purchase. Hope you guys saved your boxes ;) .
