    I to have this pre-ordered by not at BBTS though. Is the gun an issue in the robot hands as described by DoubleClouder? From the pics posted here, they should all be flushed around the handle, not a single finger sticking out.

    Thanks DoubleClouder for bringing this to our attention!!

    The only way you could fix this is to make the hole on max smaller. If you make the peg thicker it will not retract, i tried with some brushed on lazerbond.

    This is disappointing. I suppose the solution is to treat FM's ports instead of the gun's peg.

    Can't you just thicken the peg by wrapping a small strip of tape around it? It's a ghetto fix but it's not the least bit permanent... and you don't mod Fort Max in any way.

    Not if you want it to still retract. The tolerances of the hole it retracts into is too tight to add tape or floor polish.

    It fits in the hands, it's just that one finger doesn't sit as flush as the others. It doesn't stick out fully extended or anything.

    I got my two guns and the sword today.

    The sword, my gawd! Absolutely beautiful!!!

    The two guns. so amazing they fit perfectly in the slots of the default hands, and yeah the index finger sticks out a bit due to the gun butt end of the gun handle. I don't have the DNA hands yet, so I got no idea what the gun will look like in those.

    As for how they fit? Yup, floppy and limp on pretty much every single 5mm hole on FM.

    Sadly, the pegs on both sides of the gun seem to be less than 5mm. a huge shame, but... not entirely a deal breaker as I can floor polish the peg holes on the tower and on the back, no biggie really.

    Also when using the switch on the back of the guns extending either pegs is a pain. the holes the pegs pop out of are pretty small. so if polish is used be very careful and do so in the holes you want to peg the gun into instead of the pegs themselves. because there's a large chance the pegs will get stuck inside the gun itself. seriously very tight fit.

    Got mine last week, and just dropped a few drops of super glue into the holes on Fort Max's tower. Perfect fit now.

    Really it's fantastic gun, and the peg being loose is such a non-issue when there's so many options to fix it out there. Certainly nothing I would consider dropping a pre-order over or claiming it's a failure, etc.

    Also, before anyone goes damning the company for making the mistake, go ahead and try pegging the gun to any 5mm hole in any other figure. It is, in fact, a perfect and snug fit. It's actually Max's holes that are ever so slightly over-sized. Try another standard 5mm gun, and you'll see. Yes, PH should have probably adjusted to fit, but maybe they assumed he had normal 5mm ports.

    Lastly, my the peg on my gun has some super glue on it, and slides back into the gun just fine. But, even if it didn't, and just stuck on one side, it's so short, it easily just blends in with all the other sculpting on the gun.

    So really, what I'm saying is, if you like the gun, the peg is just a non-issue. Thicken up the peg, or hole, with your thickening agent of choice, and you've got an excellent, well priced Fort Max gun.

    I bought the kit and all I can say is the sword is awesome! The plastic is thick and transparent and the gun itself is very nice. To be honest though I also bought the Perfect Effect gun instead because I liked the size and the esthetics of the PE gun more. The Heisenberg gun is nice put a bit too plain for me.
    I'm sorry I didn't take any pictures with the guns in ship or fortress mode but I mainly display Fort Max in robot mode that's why.

    Hitokiri, how does the PE gun fits in the slots of Fortress Maximus?
    I want a gun for him and I'm a bit worried about the whole "doesn't fit in the tower" thing for the Heisenberg one. I don't want to fix the holes because other guns I have (like CW Cyclonus and TR galvatron ones) fit. If the PE gun works out of the box I'll go for It (unless DNA releases that damn rifle...).

    Looks good and menacing. Two unrelated questions: is Grimlock the OS one? Is there Pen Optimus Prime on Fortress' shoulder?

    Has anyone out there tried the Heisenberg gun w/the DNA hands?

    If so, how did it work out?

    How in the heck do you get this gun to fit in the PE hands? There's little bar things on the gun handle that are preventing it from going in and they're even getting smushed now that I've been trying...
