I really really want it, but it's just not in the budget right now (and I don't think I've ever paid that much for just one figure).

And, is it even the slightest bit possible for the price to go down at all? Or even go on sale?

I know that this is world's better than the prices of a vintage Fort Max, but it's still out of a good price range for me.

It's enough to make a guy wish he had been alive in the 80's when Fort was only $99.99.




:-B When you do the math and adjust for inflation, a Fort Max from 1987 is worth about $214 of today's dollars. So even then Fort Max was expensive. :-B


Haha good point. Any kid was super lucky to have him back then too

Literally just got an email from BBTS saying that the price of Fortress Maximus has dropped $20. Good times!

That was a nice email :)It isn't much compared to the full cost of the thing but I'll take that discount any day. It's $20 I can, hopefully, put towards MP Sideswipe

Or just those who are into what Takara Tomy has to offer. ;) The rest are stuck with "short stack" Optimus Prime and a modified Soundwave... And maybe torches and pitchforks when they hear about this. :lol:

But I digress - We have the newest Transformers manga debuting in this month's issue of Kerokero Ace, Hasbro putting out two vintage pieces (even if they are not perfect), and Takara Tomy putting out these within the next few months.

Yup... I think it is a great time to be a TF fan right now, and I am hoping it will get better from hereon out. ;)^

One question, what time zone does the world end in? Like when it is midnight on the east coast on 12-21-2012 it is still 12-20-2012 on the west coast.


The world does not end. It's the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine. :BOOM:
