    Ugh! I forget how pricey they are. I thought they had him on constant discount. But even their discounts are still pricey compared to other shops.

    A Brave Maximus colour one would be nice to have - perhaps even a gold one.

    I'd like to see him with the WJ OS versions of the Headmasters, I think that might scale perfectly.

    The only city bots I would be remotely interested in buying are the ones made by MakeToys, this and the FT version look like a pile of boxes...

    A quick and dirty pic, but I think you're right.

    So... I've been wanting a non Titan-Scaled Fort Max for a aaages. PE Warden is still calling to me but is way more expensive.

    Advice? Continue to go for the dream or settle for the downscaled classic?

    if you want an IDW guy go for warden if you want a g1 cartoon or comic guy go for this guy. He has all the modern articulation of toys today but looks exactly like the old cartoon/comic. ITs earthrise before earthrise was a thing

    Yeah, the IDW thing is the problem. Never gave a damn about max before then. Sigh. Cool, thanks.

    See, this is more of what I wish Hasbro and Takara had done with Fortress Maximus. G1 design with lots of updated articulation. The Titan we got was WAY too tied to the Metroplex mold and suffered greatly for it. Metroplex is a wonder for it's time and is easily one of my favorite Titans but Fort Max was just...so lacking. I know the guy running the show at Hasbro wants to redo Metroplex but it's Fort Max that needs to be redone and if Hasbro and Takara did something like THIS in Titan class I would sell my Takara figure in a heart beat.

    MMC should be working on an IDW Fortress Maximus: Reformatted R-50 Supermax Crowdfund
    The crowd funding campaign failed but it was said that the figure will still be made, maybe next year. It was said to be 11 inches tall and cost $200-250, I don't know if things will change before release.

    I grew up with the Marvel Comics, but I've always regretted not getting Grant, so I would definitely wait for that one.

    Seems like it’s on the low end of what the original retailed for, at least.

    I probably won't bother with this now, and just keep hoping that MFT will put out an upscaled KO to be compatible with their eventual UT Legends Fort Max KO.

    Ah well.
