    okay.... after the chatter of not getting the appeal of Max... and downsizing Max (!?)...

    I have to say that IS the appeal of Fort Max. He's huge. That's his one awesome thing. (given, the headmaster gimmick is fun.) Getting to put all your minibots on him (or WST). That's the big appeal. I'm going to go home right now and put ALL the WST bots on him like little ants.

    So that said, here's hoping it's an UPSIZED Fort Max. rahahaha.

    But seriously, gonna have to start saving. Sounds like a must have either way... either to get a decent repro Grand Max, or to have a posable Fort Max.

    This x1000000.
    When I was in film school, I couldn't count with a million hands the number of times some asshole showed me the "trailer" for the shitty movie he hadn't even started yet. I absolutely do not understand why none of these companies can act like professionals, even the best of them promises shit way out in advance and completely ignores release dates. Maybe if they spent less time photoshopping 25 year old artwork and more time working on fucking toys, they'd make more money.

    As for this, if it's a KO of the old toy- pass. No interest in old toys. If it's a new 3rd party Fort Max and it actually gets released, well.. if it's cool, I'll buy it.

    Could be Primus... Cybertron in the background. But I think the Cybertron/Creator Primus is good enough for recent times, so I could be wrong :\

    I'd settle for just a replacement for Cerebros. Seriously, how many headless Fort Maxes are out there kicking around!

    Best, MyClone

    Isn't TaoBao more a site where the KOs are sold? Sort of like iOffer? Unless, I'm wrong, that's why I'd guess a KO.

    TaoBao is essentially China's equivalent of eBay. Legitimate stuff gets sold there, too, including bona fide TFs. It's not like the place is some black market.

    I will be keeping an eye on this and hoping for a US Based retailer to offer it, but i will find a way to get it if it proves legit.

    It depends on how everything else is going. There's Hercules, a rumored menasor, dinobots, a rumored Predaking, and a kickass sixshot. I can't do any more in 2012.

    However, if one of those other things doesn't come to pass, I have the cash set aside and will gladly shift it to Max.

    This is interesting, but I won't get my hopes up until we see some type of pics.

    Aahh the same producers of the High Justice swords ? Mmm.... now it's more probable that it'll be a copy of the original FM toy :(
