    Hello,

    Every year I get money for Christmas from random people. I tend to total this up and my wife makes me spend it on my self because I tend to be obsessed with paying bills etc. With that said I am thinking of getting either Titans Return Fort Max or the 3rd Party Warden (IDW Fort Max)... So my fellow Transformers fans, which one would you guys recommend. I have watched reviews for both and I still can't decide.. I would love any input. Also Infinitor is a choice as well.

    Thanks,

    Dustin

    If you're gonna get a Fort Max, get the Legends version, looks much better than the Titans Returns IMO. Obviously its 100 bucks or so more though.

    N/M Legends is the Takara version of Titans Return.. Space is sort of an issue but not quite

    You seem like a no frills guy who is happy and easily satisfied. Having said that, get the hasbro Fort Max and the four autobot headmasters. Chromedome, Hardhead, Highbrow, and Brainstorm. I own these toys and am so very satisfied with them :)

    My wife and kids are getting me the 4 headmasters for my birthday, which is why I need a Fort Max.. I was highly considering Warden because I love the IDW books but I am unsure if he is worth having if you do not own G1 Fort Max.. Also almost every video of Titans Return Fort Max I have seen has flimsy limbs.. Is this true?

    Not mine. Nice and tight his limbs are. And the cerebros figure is fantastic too. Even if it wasnt the most economical choice he is the best choice. Especially if you have the four headmasters

    Yeah, my Fort Max is solid.
    I don't have any photos of Max with the other head masters, If you're going for a small team display then go for Warden but Max is a helluva lot of fun. And Massive.

    The one issue with Tomy's Legends Fort Max is that his legs are glued shut. While that's not necessarily a bad thing if you only plan to use official modes, it does put a damper on being able to make your own base modes for him. So...

    Legends Fort Max - most expensive, comes with swords, toy accurate color scheme, toy Cerebros head, locked shins
    SDCC Fort Max - middle expense, comes with swords, less toy accurate color scheme, toy Cerebros head, open shins
    Hasbro Retail Fort Max - least expensive, no swords, least toy accurate color scheme, "Rebirth" Cerebros head, open shins

    If you plan on having Titans Return figures, then one of these Fort Max is a must if you have the space for him.

    So far only Titans Returns figures I have is Blurr, my wife and kids are getting me the 4 main head masters for my birthday in beginning of Dec. Besides that I am getting Ginrai ( on pre-order) but yea not sure about too many of the others. I sort of hate things being a gimmick when they don't need to be. Like for example Titans Return Rodimus being a Headmaster (Titan Master) The new Optimus and Megatron look nice though so I may pick them up. I am all about displaying my toys on shelves and/or in cases. I really wish I could see some displays of Fort Max with the Headmasters and maybe Warden with the Headmasters and that would help me make up my mind. Oh well I have a little over a month to decide on what to do :)

    Hot Rod and Blurr were Targetmasters. Who is to say that, if Season 4 had continued, they wouldn't have eventually become Headmasters, too? ;)
