    I confess bafflement. I've looked all over the place, and have yet to find anyone post pics of how/if PE's Warden works with Titans Return Fortress Maximus. Surely someone here must have both toys. Please post pics!

    They don't work together

    TR max uses a different neck connector to G1 max, which is the one Warden is designed for.

    Well, they did another version of Warden's giant gun for TR Max, not out yet, but he can hold it obviously.

    I don't know anything about the new gun, other than the pic I posted here. I ordered one seeing as HASBRO cheaped out and didn't give him any weapons.

    Not only do they not fit each other, but they don't work together aesthetically, either.

    I like that gun, though. Especially in fortress mode.

    Now I'm curious how Warden looks on Fortress Maximus, even if he'd just be sitting there instead of actually connected.

    I managed to get TR fort max to hold the giant gun as it is. Not the best grip but good enough.
    Also tried fitting G1 head over it so I can keep cerebros in bot mode but it doesn't work.

    I know this isn't quite the same thing, but DNA is making an add on kit that slightly changes Fortress' face when added on.

    I don't own a warden so I'm not familiar with the connection - but would it be worthwhile for PE to make an add-on that allows use of Warden on the new TR body? Maybe with some added articulation via an adapter?

    If it gave cerbros an alt mode outside of a head and tower I would be down for it. Loving the look of PE's max gun with the new handle, if they did another smaller/simpler warden to with TR max I would be all over it.

    I think so. Warden's head mode face and connector to the main body are a single removable part (gotta love partsformers) and I think it could be possible to create a replacement part to make the figure compatible with TR Fort max. It would give PE a chance to update the face to a more CHUG style if they wanted.

    Slap that in a kit with something to enhance the base mode tower and I'd be a happy fanboy.

    Because two heads are better than one ;)

    It changes the face? I've only seen it as a head-width slimmer. The DNA set looks good

    Really? why not? why did we get a head that was compatible with the old FM? Why are there so many add on kits for any and every other figure, ie the different combiners and such, so why would a 3P not make a head, it'll happen one day or another

    I think it was Peaugh or Emgo316 who showed off the Warden head mode on TR fort max and no it didn't fit.

    This kit needs to happen! While we're at it, can we get a kit that gives Warden a bigger head & arms in proportion with the add-on? & allows for a 1-piece transformation without partsforming? Aaaaand aaaand magic should be real.

    Yeah this might actually look decent with an adapter

    Not surprising. Remember back in 2015 Botcon when Hasbro revealed Titans Returns as Titan Wars and showed us the first blueprint sketches, Fortress Maximus was clearly Warden/IDW inspired with the treads in the back. I guess Hasui changed it since he is mostly a G1/Headmaster fan.
