Yeah, but no one will be buying that Fort Max at that price aside from the desperate and rich. Would you (or anyone else here) buy a Fort Max if it was in the states right now at 260$ (that is the actual US$ price when you convert it)? At that price, might as well just get the takara one. So I am not envious in the least. To me this is no different than a scalper on e-bay getting early samples and selling them for close to double.



I'd guarantee if he was on shelf now for that price you'd still never see one because you'd still get the scalpers that will buy them all and jump on the bay and sell them for over $300 and people will buy them because they want to be first to own him.

I've actually ran into one once. He was buying all the masterpiece Soundwaves and I had to guilt him into giving me one. It was pathetic.

Does this fort max have sounds?
Looking to swap a takara Titan class fortress maximus head for a Hasbro US retail Titan fortress maximus head.

Would alternatively buy a Hasbro US retail fortress maximus head on its own if anyone had one for sale.

PM me.

Yes and if you get the japanese version, he will play the theme song.

Maybe for Fort Max, but it isnt the case for every toy. I had Optimus Primal Platinum edition on the shelves for 200$ before anyone else and no one bought him. He didnt appear on any of the scalper sites either. That was a scalper proof price. But for Fort Max, I dont know. Would the youtube generated money froma review really cover twice the price of retail? No clue.

And MP Starscream, Prime and Soudnwave were all heavily scalped because of their low prices (much lower than their Takara couterparts). This is very different from the huge price increase seen at retail here.

Well for one thing; literally the biggest transformer of all time - not to mention a re-imagining of the previous owner of that title - is more appealing than a poopy recolour of a mold no-one cared about if you put them around the same price. Fort Max I could possibly see scalped. Platinum Primal wasn't scalped because there's a grand total of seven people in the world who want him

First Written and Pictorial Review of Transformers Titans Return Fortress Maxmus

Postby william-james88 » Fri May 20, 2016 10:09 pm

Motto: "'till All Are One"
Australian Transformers fan Nathan sent us some amazing pictures of the Titans Return Fortress Maximus toy he picked up locally. He also offered us a written review. Enjoy:

TF Fan Nathan wrote:I'll be real metroplex is the better toy, there's too much of him in Fort Max's design and it hurts the quality, playability and makes you feel like your transforming him wrong a lot of the time.

I really thought fort max was gonna have more guns, he doesn't even have the wrist gun that metroplex has. The back of the hand guns I can kinda forgive but when metroplex already had the gun? Weird choice hasbro.
Also I would gladly sacrifice the sounds in base mode to be able to have those hip guns. He just looks and feels a lot smaller than metroplex. For a guy called Fortress Maximus, I'm not getting that from his toy. The original had way more features in base mode than his updated counterpart.

Cerebros's shoulders are held in by two small tabs that pop out constantly due the rest of the joints being too tight I'm already starting to get some stress marks in the plastic and I got him yesterday.

I love this toy because I love the character and the line that he's going to be a part of and I was always a headmasters fan, it's just to me this whole figure screams missed opportunity. He's a great toy but when compared to metroplex comes up short in all three modes.

Let's all just hope that Takara has something great up its sleeve for their release of Fort Max in September. We still haven't seen the Master Sword, that we KNOW is coming, so perhaps there are a few more nice little touches we have yet to see from them?

Going to wait and see what the SDCC version has up its figurative sleeve before making a concrete decision. If he doesn't seem to have any other improvements, I'll stick with the standard release. Not that interested in Takara's release for some reason.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. For the price, it just doesn't have what the original G1 Fort Max had. If you're willing to pay the money for this, just put a bit extra in, and buy the reissue of the G1 Fort Max. That figure had so much play factor built into it.

I skipped Metroplex because the only thing it had going for it was how big it was. The city mode just looks like a splayed out robot, and the land cruiser thing just looks like he's doing light yoga. Fort Max looks like the better figure to me, the city mode actually looks like buildings and roads instead of just a splayed out robot, and the cruiser hides the robot features a lot better. That review wasn't really any good to be honest. The only information I got was he wanted more guns on it, which is totally subjective.

In this day and age, having more guns to be truer to the original but it would of shot the price up, by how much is unknown. The question is, would people pay the extra price? And would parents pay the extra?

As a owner of Gen Metroplex and G1 Encore Fortmax, I don't feel the need at all to own the TR version. I mean, Fortmax 2.0 transform even less than Metroplex! While Metroplex sat down and made an effort, TR Fortmax just pass out drunk on the ground. Pathetic. Especially compared to the G1 original. The original toy will NEVER be beaten unless Takara decide to make a 1000$ MP.
