We've seen official color art for the upcoming Titans Return Fortress Maximus before. But fellow Seibertronian Mindmaster has sent us an image from weibo user zmultiplier. This is another teaser image along the same lines as the recently revealed Combiner Wars Computron. What makes this new picture stand out is what appears to be the Master Sword. Which was previously hinted at in Fort Max's first reveal.

An anonymous source informed us that Fortress Maximus might get a possible release at this year's SDCC, similar to Metroplex and Devastator in previous years. Our source told us that Fort Max MIGHT include the large sword and possibly his smaller gun, which we don't think the retail version will include. Currently, we do not have any confirmation from Hasbro about a SDCC release or any information about possible additional accessories.

That's why you preorder from TCP instead of TFSource; with TCP, you get an extra durable Hylian shield and a bonus Heart container.

I'd better lay off the Zelda jokes, lest Burn forcibly recruits me on Team Stalker!

Well, me and D-Max have already joined Team Va'al, so we won't.


Or are you talking about moderators and not the First Seibertronian Civil War?

Will the mini "head" still be called Cerebros? And will Cerebros also have his own "key blade" like the original had?

I had to buy those two separate for my USA G1 Fortmax.

I'm hoping the big head is still named Cerebros. considering in the comics they have made a point of saying he is with fort Max one would hope :BOT:

I'm doing an X.I hope Fortmax won't have any electronic gimmicks! Working gimmicks like ramp compartments, launchers,levers, pulleys or elevators fine (as a Fortress) Just no electronics.........PLEASE!

Back to the present fiction. Somehow, prior to the Titans scale, IDW laid down the foundation for Metroplex. What about Fortmax? Last I red he was a "warden" and new Tyrest Accords enforcer (correct me please if I'm wrong)

So how are they,IDW, gonna shoe horn the "character" into being a "fortress",headmaster.....will he also be the leader of the headmaster subgroup?

I still preferred him to being an architect (seems like architects and engineers make good killing machine Titans/combiners) in his old bio.

Probably like in Combiner Wars, where some ancient relic gifts Transformers super size and base modes. *shrug*

Reason why I'm pushing this is how creative TT did with Grand Galvatron. Somehow, fitting Galvatron's return between his death and resurrection as Super Megatron. Giving a product a proper back story for use "grown ups" really enhances the "buy me factor".

Original headmaster in the US version was to increase the Autobot's fighting skills (similar to Rebirth) and put the alien robot's under "human control". Even both Tomy and Hb UM had a good back story.

Also, how/where the Primus did Fort get that big@zz sword? Who's he gonna slice it with? Will the "truce"/peace between the 'cons be broken?

And no electronics! 8-}

Probally, like Combiner Wars, Hasbro will force IDW to shoehorn it in, regardless of fit. I really don't care, as long as they once again leave MTMTE alone.
