for the Encore release, they aren't stickers this time. The eyes are painted to look like the old eye stickers.

I think it also comes with the eye stickers, so you can apply them over the painted ones for a more vintage look.

Oh right. I've never seen Brave in anything but Robot mode, so I was expecting him to be mostly blue.

I'd love a solid BLACK version... or a white Metroplex "Autobot City" style version with nice painted windows.

Oh yeah, or a Grand Max. (ha) Or all of the above.

Brave Maximus


aka RiD Fortress Maximus. By 2001, US Toy Safety Laws would not allow Fortress Maximus to be released here.

I haven't launched Brave Maximus' gallery yet because I haven't had a chance to do comparison shots of him with the other RID figures from that series. However, I do have his pics done so hopefully some time in the next few months I'll bust out the RID tub o' figures.

In the meantime, Brave made an appearance in Grand Maximus' gallery which you can view by clicking on the images below.

Isn't that black one the prototype they showed a few months ago?

It's Brave Max. Black tower, black feet, dark blue legs, yellow windows.

I'm guessing the lighting makes it look black in this pic? (no black on MY Brave Max.)

Aren't the feet, head, Plasma, and side door on the right leg black? :???:

Argh. Had to cancel mine due to unemployment. Can you all do me a solid and love yours like you're five years old and it's the best toy on Christmas Day? That'd be awesome.

I'll do something better - After I have it graded and displayed, I'll do that once in a while. I'll even ponder how my inner child would have displayed it and more. :)

Shame I don't have the money or room for him. I already have an Autobot city set up in my room comprised of Metroplex, Countdown, Greasepit, Ironworks and NINE Optimus Prime trailers. G1, powermaster, Machine Wars, RID, three different Armada trailers with Overlord in place of one tower, Energon and Cybertron. I also have two Hot Spots and Silverbolts connected to Metroplex with Scattorshot in cannon mode hanging out with them.

The city is populated by a few minibots, a handful of cyberverse, a bunch of micromasters, a lot of spychangers and a TON of minicons. I actually ran out of room before I ran out of minicons but when I set up the dismal Decpticon city I can use them. I only have Trypticon, Scorpinok and RID Scourge's trailer for the con city but I have a bunch of Onslaughts and Mega Octanes.

If only I had the money for Fort Max.

Apologies for being slightly off topic, but I'd love to see a photo if you've got one, please?

"One"? lol. I have a lot of pictures of it but they didn't come out too well as the best camera in the house is my 3DS' and there's just so much going on in the city that the pictures didn't come out very well. I plan on retaking the pictures though as I face palmed myself after forgetting to put the G1 trailer in using it's "repair bay" mode.

Then I need to turn around and retake pictures of my version of a "classics" display as I had a few out for the original pics and I have since gotten a few more to put into it and dug out more from my collection to cram in as well. But again, the pics won't come out well due to bad lighting and too many figures clumped together. But I will do this soon.
