    I like the sword. The clear is sexy.
    The guns seems a little small - I like a few more bit for Max like a more elaborate cabi space part for the transport mode, some nice ramps for conecting him to other bases better and perhaps his missing 2 part robot pal scaled to Titanmasters or even to legends class robot modes.

    The the main other gun would also be nice - naturally suitable attachment points for the base mode would also be nice.

    ---

    I may have a long time to wait as I'm still waiting on a simple adaptor to allow Metroplex to store both large red guns on his deck too.

    If you're just looking for a tough sword, then ... what's wrong with the one that it already comes with?

    It costs over $200 for a Fort Max with a sword, and I already have the retail one that I got for 75

    Ah. I'm more familiar with the TT version (with sword as a standard accessory) as I think it's much more desirable than the cheaper Hasbro version.

    Well maybe some owner of the TT version who's upgraded his sword will sell you the stock sword to recoup cost. Not sure if there are any other opaque versions of the sword available. Can't hurt to try putting out a WTB and seeing if someone gets back to you.

    That said, if you aren't averse to the way the translucent sword looks, then why not just roll with it and take care that your Max doesn't do a shelf dive.

    Good luck in any case.

    Got my Master Cannon today. The sliding peg is way way to loose to attach to the body. Super disappointed. I actually have my FM displayed in carrier mode and it cannot be positioned like the below picture. Save your money. Also in robot mode the hands can't fully close around the gun. Looks like a bunch of changes happened between the testshot and the final version. Really bummed out on this.

    Can we see photos please. I have two guns and the sword coming.

    Mine's arriving in my hands tomorrow. So it's too late for me to be refunded. XD

    The gun just flops down in base mode, you can't have it positioned horizontally. As for the fist, basically all the fingers close except for the "ring" finger, which hits the lower hilt of the gun.

    Mine is the same. The peg is too small and just drops down when pegged to the side of the tower. The hand mostly closes, but as on yours the ring finger sticks out just a bit. Out of curiosity, do you have the takara or hasbro version? Mine is takara.

    Actually I have all three; SDCC, Hasbro, Takara. They did the same thing on all 3.

    Is this a problem that can be fixed with floor polish?

    Not sure since the peg slides into the gun and it looks to be a pretty tight fit as it is. If you did, you could never retract the peg. Even on his back, it just sorta hangs there. I can't find a single hole on FM that it plugs into securely.

    This really pisses me off.

    did you get yours from BBTS like I did? I'm gonna let them know what's up after I get mine and take some photos.

    Heisenburg needs to know about this immediately. maybe we can mail all our guns to him and he can make replacement pegs that actually fit more securely? I spent 75 dollars on mine.
    This isn't right at all.

    This now makes me wonder if the sword will have issues (god, I fucking hope not)

    Yep BBTS. I ordered two of the guns. I tried them both and they are the same.

    I just spoke to peaugh on Twitter he showed me his vid he made about the issue.

    He says they work fine in Max's stock hands and in the DNA hands (though a bit tight), it's only the alt mode they have issues.

    if you try the floor polish method, let me know if it works.

    Well that sucks about the gun flopping about like that cause I wanted it just to peg on the side of the starship like the toon. I like the way this gun looks too compared to the other one that's out. Anyone want to unload theirs? Trade for it maybe?
