Wow. If they engineered this to exactly fit Max.... well played. I wouldn't have even remotely thought about buying this until I saw the pic here. Now, I'm kinda tempted.

Who's putting in a hundred bucks for this rescue bot looking thing? Seriously. The Nike was cool. Robots look cool. This is like Disney alreAdy bought Hasbro, but assuming Disney store has it for 20 bucks

It's like they're a third party add-on kit to turn Fortress Maximus into Maximum Douchebagus.

They're $26.99 each, or $49.99 for the set of two, at BBTS.

I think they're cool. If Hasbro released them at Deluxe prices, I'd buy them.

The best part is that Fortress Maximus can wear them.

So you put a Capmaster on the only Double-Headmaster, causing the total brain-synch to transverse neural subspace and...

...give me flashbacks to those pics on Walky's old site of Fort Max wearing a diaper.

Well, I'm still on the fence about the Capbots, but for some reason this makes me want the Max reissue even more. Hm.

I like them but they would be much better if there were a couple hinges in the bill so that they could fold into actual feet but I think I'm going to have to preorder Maximus now too! :BOT:
