So I hate to rain on everyone's parade. I know it is exciting that Fort Max is coming in April 2013. But remember the world is going to end on 12-21-2012. 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.

Just a bunch of Mayan shenanigans trolling our scientists.

Not to get all religious (and off-topic) here, but the Bible says that no one, not even the angels, knows when the time is; only God.

Back on topic before Burn yanks my eyes out...

Not really too excited about Fort Max (gasp!). I think it's pretty cool, but at $360, I can get MP-10, Halo 4 Limited Edition, all five Combaticons, and a couple replacement Energon figures I've desperately needed for years.

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.

Also, BBTS is the king of the mark up. Captured Prey have already posted that they will have it and for a lower price than BBTS.

If it is an Encore like they claim it is, they will accept all preorder requests until the item is shipped to them. After that, they will try to get more in, and that means no guarantee that the hardcore collectors will get a chance to obtain a "mint" box.

That is all I can tell, and I hope that reassures things for you. Plus, I have 100% decided that once TFsource has it up for preorder... I am going to do what it takes to get mine. Mostly because I missed out on getting Twincast in a mint box, and I am even pondering if missing out on Sixshot was a wise move.

Oh, and also... The latest Kerokero Ace that debuts the new Transformers manga is out. :michaelbay:

:-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

Back then, for the Price of Fortmax ($ 100.00), you can purchase 3 full grocery carts of food. Now, For that amount, barely 1 full.

Wait. Those are the actual legit figs sold by Takara around early 2000+

The scammers, iirc,colored Ginrai black or was it Godbomber? Anyways thanks for the link, the fig btw ain't really that rare 'cause back in Japan, he can still be found around $ 200 w/o shipping.

All preordered. I'll likely cancel Fort Max if they confirm that they'll be doing a reissue of the RID version. I like his color scheme better, especially on Cerebros/the Emissary.

I'm contemplating canceling my Hasbro preorders of the new FoC stuff as well now that I've preordered the Takara versions. I'll leave them for a bit though and wait and see what the real differences are before doing so though, but I suspect Takara's will be superior (as usual).

It is a definite for me, as it is one of the reasons why I decided to start collecting Transformers once again. But what has me curious is if they are going to be using the original box art or use the Grand Maximus pose - Like Kabaya did with their DX set. :-?

Either way... Cave into the temptation. ;)

I thought that, due to the packaging, but when you mentioned black Ginrai I immediately thought of that.

To clarify:

- Black God Ginrai with Black Godbomber = fake, Takara never released that
- Black Super Ginrai without Godbomber = real. Of note is that he was sold as Nucleon Quest Super Convoy/Optimus Prime instead, not Masterfore Ginrai.
