Is that paint?! :shock:

I mean I remember my kabaya fort max has only stickers for details, but it does look like powerglide has blue eyes and Max has a painted face! :-?

I wanna see more!

Don't get too excited. By nature model kits come completely bare, no paint, no stickers. Any paint is added on by the buyer and is no part of the set itself.

The Master Sword is definitely factory painted with additional black, you can see it on the box as well while the original was just solid red. same with Powerglide's black cockpit so it does appear that some parts have been painted this time around.

A Ton of In Hand Images of a Completed 2016 Kabaya Transformers DX Fortress Maximus

Postby william-james88 » Sat Aug 13, 2016 2:59 pm

Our Japanese correspondent, Matt, had found and built one third of Kabaya's Fortress Maximus Metallic Version. Well, he went back to get the rest and built him so that you could see the full figure. He also compared it to the Combiner Wars Kabaya kit. This kit is available at most online Transformers retailers which also stock imports.

The photos sent to us include:

Command Base with Fortress
Fort Max's head
A showcase of nice metallic green paint
Launch Base with Charger
Working ramp lever
City Mode
Base Mode
Fortress Maximus
Size comparison

Block Wars, not Combiner Wars :)

It's actually pretty cute how Kabaya had to split him in three sets, yet managed to make self-sustained sets out of the parts, and not going like "Fortress Maximus A", "B" and "C". Brownie points for that. ;)^

This is definitely improved from the last version. The painted face looks nice, and I like the inclusion of the green. His sticker art is even a little different.

I wonder, does somebody know if the cartoon depiction of fort max had green or not? Because just going off of the difference in the horn stickers, I'm thinking this might be a "toy accurate version," retroactively dubbing the last version as a "cartoon accurate" one... :-?

Honestly, get either kit if you like Fort Max. I had a lot of fun putting together these kits, then putting together Fort Max.
Don't get butthurt when you get called out for expressing closed/small/narrow minded opinions. Educate yourself and form a better opinion.

Side/related question: Is there a good site or sites to get Transformers kits like the Kabaya or Arms Micron ones? Other than Big Bad Toy Store, I already shop there.

Yeah, HLJ is a good place for those.
