    Who did the Generations mold fit more. Metroplex or Fort Max?

    I like Max, but he lies down to transform. Plex did it better, imho.

    As a robot I like Fort Max better. As a city, I like Metroplex better.

    As much as I like Fort Max and having Fort Max I feel Metroplex wears the mold a lot better... On an unrelated note I really wish Hasbro's Fort Max actually came with a weapon like Metroplex. Just a gun or the Master Sword, just something.

    Of course Metroplex, since the mold is designed for him. Fortress still looks good but is left with some unused gimmicks while lacking the ability to transform the legs for a proper city mode.

    As much as I love Fort Max(I mean, look at my username,FFS!), I think Metroplex wears the mold better.

    Really, it depends on the rest of your collection. Metroplex works best with Legends class figures that were released during Thrilling 30, Combiner Wars, and Titans Returns. Fort Max works best with the little Titan Masters and their little companion vehicles that so far have only been released in Titans Returns.

    So if I had to choose just one to own, it would be Metroplex--but I am glad I have both.

    The irony is that in the box art he is depicted with a gun, and yet they didn't include one. I love Fortress and actually prefer him to Metroplex, but with a little more effort from Hasbro he could have been perfect instead of only good.

    I like max better as a character but Metroplex fits that tooling so much better. I think if max had just gotten new legs he would have won this but as it is metro takes it.

    I didn't buy FM because of the lack of weapons, lack of waist cannons and that it just looks like a Metroplex repaint.

    I have them both. Metroplex is the clear winner to me. It actually has a transformation instead of just laying down. Fort Max looks like an unplanned way to milk some more money out of the mold. I actually kind of regret getting Fort Max and if it had any resale value, I would get rid of it now. I am probably just going to hang on to it until Christmas and sell it for whatever it is going for then. I need to make room for Trypticon.....

    Neither one look good in City Mode and for me both look pretty even in bot mode. Can't call it-too close. Can we add G1 Fortmax as an option because it is the superior mold by far

    I know a lot of Fort Max's play value comes from the myriad of fan modes he has. Anybody figure out any good fanmodes for Metroplex? Genuinely interested, since I have neither.

    I have a feeling this mold gets used again for Scorponok.

    This.

    If the base mode was at least half decent, I would have bought it.

    I was NEVER going to pass on Fort Max...EVER and I think his bot mode is A1.. But Metroplex has him beaten in all 3 modes. I was very disappointed in Max's city mode.I will probably never see it again. Max is currently headless because Cerebros is in my 87 display with the other deluxe dudes....and he looks great.

    I own the original Fort Max in his Brave Maximus incarnation from RID. and man.....that bots city mode has SO MUCH character. When I take him down and transform him into City mode I just cover him in the 4 Autobot Micromaster teams I have. New Max just doesn't have "it".

    Metroplex for me.

    Plex is a WAY better use of the mold. Just wish he had the waist thickness that Max has.
