    I wonder how much this guy will cost now that FT seems to have adopted a Takara-like pricing policy on their figures?

    I don't see why they wouldn't do a Rebirth face. Should be as simple as a screw to swap out. Could even just tab them in place fir an easy swap. I'd be tempted to pick up 2 then.

    I would want a rebirth one myself. However, I would also like Cerebros colored black, but I doubt that would happen.

    I want him black as well. I remember how Cerebros was a pacifist and once Spike got a hold of them that sh1t was over. Him being behind Fortress Maximus was such a cool idea. So far in headmasters releases we get the Japanese continuity and at least some nod to Rebirth. Hopefully that continues.

    This Fort Max needs a hidden alternative mode, turns into a study desk, that way I can sell it to the wife as an educational purchase!

    Bloody hell, completely forgot they still had this mutha outstanding on their release slate, but in a way I wish they didn't and could concentrate on the gazillion smaller figures they still have yet to release. :eek: :( 

    FT are nothing if not ambitious with how much they fill their backlog to bursting! :D

    Don't worry guys. Supposedly Congress will make sure that every American will be able to afford this one. The next stimulus act will be called the Fortress Maximus Act.

    It is big enough to block your door with it. Very handy when it comes to the current American troubles...

    The funniest thing that I have the most severe problems with English system on this entire site. In Russia, metric system reigns supreme since USSR.

    She already said I could get it. If she changes her mind her mom has a guest bedroom.
    I'm not an asshole, I'll help her pack

    I’m less worried about the price of the product (latest rumour from China is some 3000 Yuan street price, with 2000 Yuan for preorders) than the shipping price. I hope that when it’s released in some years the shipping will be down the current spiked prices.
