I know you are just trolling, but here goes anyway... What the f**k does FOC Metroplex have to do with Fortress Maximus?
Metroplex is tall, but skinny: Metroplex is a big hulk of plastic. There's a significant reason Metroplex WILL be able to be sold in the US, while Fortress Max (/ Brave Max) WAS NOT allowed to be sold after G1: it's because FOC Metroplex will probably be a hollow shell, weighing in at 1 to 2 kg, while FM (4,5 kg)
will squash small pets and infants if it topples over.
Oh yeah, and BTW: FOC Metroplex: $125 MSRP
, Encore Fortress Max: $225 (with the right online retailer)
. So how does that make Metroplex a third of FM's asking price???
Anyhow, I know my Encore FM left Japan today, with the slow boat (SAL)
The good thing about SAL (apart from being the cheaper shipping method)
, you ask? Well, it usually attracts slightly less attention from customs. Even if I would have had him shipped by EMS in 3 days, it would most certainly have spent the next 2 weeks in damn customs anyhow, negating all benefits from express shipping.
