Still the largest TF toy ever made, Fortress Maximus [or Brave] is a collector's dream... and carries an insane price tag. I always wanted one as a kid, and I still kinda do now, but there's two issues with that... too many new shiny things that do cost a bit, and... lack of fricking space. Especially for something that could be used as a door god.
Then Kabaya came along, and produced this little bugger.

... little being a relative term. to put things in perspective? this guy is about half a head taller than Prime FE Optimus Prime. For a Kabaya toy, that is bloody huge.

I didn't fancy the look of the plastic's base colors though, so... a quick wash with grey acrylics and a little panel lining later [together with some of the stickers to give im some badly needed detailing], we have the Original Tower of Power... now a nice handy size.
Go grab im while he's cheap, guyz. All he needs is a little paint, a little love, and he's fricking AWESOME. XD

Nice work, man! I have this set too and have been thinking about painting it, especially since the stickers seem to flake easily. You've really given some 'depth' to the figure.
