Who...?
Cant say I have ever really heard of him, lets see what tfwiki says...

tfiki wrote:Fortress Maximus (Headmaster Base, 1987)
Cog was available as part of the Fortress Maximus set. He is formed by combining the two armored cars, Gasket and Grommet; the process involves little more than removing Gasket's arms and re-pegging them on his sides and then pegging the two vehicles together. The top of Gasket's vehicle mode is sculpted to securely fit Spike (pictured) or any other large Headmaster figure.

Takara's Fortress Maximus was recently re-issued. Any add-on to that, will have a lot of G1 folks snapping that stuff.

I guess, but if Cog came with Fort Max anyway, why would hardened G1 fans go for a 3rd Party remake?
Doesnt make much sense. :???:

I didn't say purists. The same people who will be buying the PE add-on, will buy this as well.

Perhaps.

Mixing new with the old just doesnt look right in my opinion.
I tried to get onboard with the Destroyer upgrades for G1 Devastator but they where just badly put together.

Detailed, modern articulation even in something so small as a Headmaster just look off with the G1 blocky/clunky/articulation free figures of the Eighties.

Maybe someone will buy this... |:|

I don't get his release either. Even among obscure TFs, there has to be better choices.

It's not even a release yet. It's a solicitation. If they get a lot of interest, it'll likely get released.

I'd be one who might be interested at this level. I don't really have the funds at this time for the Encore Fort Max, plus I'm fast running out of room. (Boxed all the movie stuff up a couple of months ago.)

I like my Kabaya version of Fort Max. But if they produce Cerebro in scale with the FP Headmasters, then I would consider Shaft here too to go with the other Headmasters in my Neo-G1 shelves.

I'm definitely interested to see where this goes...

I would get him IF
1) He was as articulated as any other modern TF
2) Combined, he stands at around Deluxe height.

I wouldn't put him with my reissue Fort Max... but he'd definitely go with my Classics collection. Heh, Fort Max, piecemeal? :D
