I still have my (mostly complete) Fort Max from childhood but I'm still preordering this anyway. Too sweet to pass up. I am not, however, paying $50 extra just to get it early :-)

Nah, just one that's within easier reach. :lol: I'm praying e-Hobby will do either a Grand or Brave Maximus repaint, with all accessories including the sword.

Im assuming those MP Rumble and Ravage go with the MP soundwave. Sigh, That thing mocks me, I both want it and wish it was just a teensy bit cheaper :sad:. However, this Jet Vehicon General intrigues me, and to an extent so does "darkest" megatron. Maybe a Darkness megs without all that chrome :???: or 'gulp' with more chrome :shock:

Holy freakin' balls :CON: ...done and done on the $349.99 preorder for Fort Max!! I always wanted him as a kid and was able to get the Korean knock off version during RID.I liked him but he wasn't complete...sold him last year :sad: . This totally makes up for it! Consider my mind :michaelbay: . Long live Big Bad Toystore.

Encore Fort max! :grin: Time to stop eating crappy school food for a few months.

Darkest Megatron? As much chrome as you put on it, it's still a pass, I'm happy with my PRID one. Jet vehicon General? Probably a Jet vehicon in dark colours (Ala regular Car Vehicon colours). If so, I'm on, never got the Jet vehicon.


As for TG, the price is too damn high for me to even be interested. Might just get TG Bruticus, and hasbro for the rest. Takara makes Hasbro FOC look dirt cheap.

I picked up the RID version several years ago and felt it was incomplete not having the weapons and all, but I can't justify $350 even though he's worth it.

Wow, what timing! Up until last week, I would have preordered that Fort Max without a thought. But now? Do I go back on my decision to downsize my collection? I already have the RiD version (with gun and sword!) and I'm thinking about getting rid of it.

Fort Max, MP Ravage, MP Rumble.

:BOOM: :BOOM: :BOOM:

Not sure if two cassettes should come in at the $59.99 mark though. I would have thought releasing Rumble and Frenzy together would have made more sense so they didnt have to specify which color goes to which character. I think Frenzy will be red, based on the original toy name. Also, what about that shadowy MP-10 picture, was someone trolling us?

$60.00 for MP Rumble/Ravage??? I know BBTS likes to price gouge hot new items but that sounds pretty crazy to me. Just another reason to wait for Hasbro to release their version next year.

I'm still betting MP Soundwave will be a SDCC'13 exclusive and already include all the cassettes, and not cost me $300+.

Time to start saving for that Fort Max. Lol. Thank god BBTS has the pre-order. If it's due in April I should have the cash put together, but one never knows when an emergency will arise :/ Hopefully their won't be any...

I sense next year is going to be a year of very few figure purchases.

Oh Masterpieces.

I would be happy to have a Fort Max, but I am happier to have the $350 he would cost.

I will be requesting the MP cassettes as a Xmas present.

I like the idea of re-issuing Foer Max. Im not going to be buying him, but this will help drive down the price of the original to something more realistic in todays economy.

As much as I wont' question buying them, I have to agree 60 bucks for the two cassettes seems outrageous. That's half the price of Soundwave himself. There's not half a masterpiece between the two.

Still...Ravage...I have to have him. I've waited for a MP Ravage since MP01. :CON:
