I'd like to have that Dev, but I'm not buying again after having just bought the new Encore version a year ago. This one looks better all around, though.

I'm a sucker for limited runs etc.

No, its too much to pay for one figure and I need to pay for Masterpiece figures and holiday..........arrrrgghhhhh

:lol: ..... :))

Thanks for the laugh. You're awesome for doing that, as I needed it after the two responses I have received today (that had nothing to do with the point I made or the facts I based them on). :lol: But anyways... Would it be a bad time to also mention that TFsource offers both free shipping for all orders above $150, and also allows you to pay for this item the moment they receive it? :WHISTLE:

I know it's a trivial thing to contest but I saw Maximus' biography on BBTS earlier and had a :???: moment when I saw his speed is higher than his endurance.

Really???

Well, in Hasbro's defense, Michael Bay helped make BB be popular. :lol: But, ahem... >:oP On a more serious note, I have to be upset with them when it comes to the way they allowed the "Japanese Collection" be handled.

But yeah... Takara Tomy is trying to reestablish themselves within the G1 community since 2007. And I am hoping they continue as they are transitioning to the terminology first created by Marvel for Hasbro. :-B

Forgive me, I wasn't suggesting BBTS got it wrong. This might be the first time I've actually seen Fort Max's tech specs (or at least the first time I've paid attention to them) and I'm just surprised by those numbers.

in FM's defence, he can travel between planets speedily enough to keep the plot moving. I don't think Blurr can do that now can he?

You are forgiven on account that I wanted to see if we were on the same page. And besides, I think it is due to the fact he has a structural weakpoint that has his Endurance is lower.

But I guess that is the cost of being created by Marvel first and not have Tony Stark be involved. :-B

He does?

I knew of Scorponok (or the MegaZarak version from The Headmasters) having a weak spot in his chest, but not one for Fort Max.

Or, are you talking about the toy mold? ^_^'

I was talking about the fact that Fortress requires the Master Sword to become Fortress Maximus. And the Destrons found that it can be prevented. So his weak point is the area where the bonding process happens. That, and his size when he become Fort Max might have reduced his maximum potential. :-B

And speaking of the toys, there is a rumor that Soundblaster's tapes hold data stolen from Hasbro. ;)
