well there's no question it would be expensive but, when you think about it, considering the price that large 3rd party figs are going for i.e. genesis, complete combiners, and even mmc cyclops, and then compare that to what a reissue of fortmax costs I'll bet you could have an equally scaled 3rd party fort max for a not too outrageous price.

what i mean is people seem to want to pay what a fortmax costs and i think we could have a comparably sized 3rd party fortmax for an equally comparable price.

i said in another post about the new 3rd party not overlord that when you do the math large 3rd party figs, though few in example, seem to go for about $20 per inch. So even if a fortmax was only 18" we're talking around $400. For a fully articulated, dare i say, even l.e.d. lit (ala genesis) fortmax, hell YES id be in on that!!!!!

and that's the worst case scenario. These fp headmasters aren't too expensive even as compared to other similarly sized 3rd party figs such as grindrod, or hell, even Perfect effect's little tiny guys are like the same price!

just sayin for shits and giggles, what if.... http://www.fortressmaximus.com/catalog/Fortress+Maximus

I've always said that it's not the amount of plastic used to make a figure, but rather the number of parts needed for the figure that justifies the cost.

Etching molds be expensive yo.

This figure is awesome! I think it's my favourite of the three shown so far.

give me a $400 G1-sized, but fully articulated Fort Max, and I'll be all over it. Chromedome is good fun, UUUU looks great and Smart Robin (can't we just call him Tim?) has me excited too.
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

Thanks! And makes sense. Their Stunticons are almost done. Now onto their Headmasters.
Not caring about scale since 1984. Just like Hasbro.

I love the body. But Im not digging the black face with the stupid white chin strap. WTF is going on with the Function X heads ?

Code - faceplate not G1 orange

Smart Robin - No faceplate at all

Quadruple U - black face with a white chin strap


If FP is going to make all the heads crappy miss-colored renditions of the Headmasters cartoon which sucked, can they at least sell an alternate set of heads based on the Rebirth later on ? Ill buy them and I wont even complain. Just make them available.

The headmasters is a different team. They were making these independent of the Stunticons, as far as I remember.

Quad-U looks almost ready! Can't wait!

I'm hoping the contrast is turned down a bit on the camera there; the colours are looking very dull. Regardless, FansProject seem to be doing their own thing with the Function X colours. I'll be sticking with them though. Just.... do better. #-o
