Hasbro is now bringing one out as an individual item) or Slingshot(Quickslinger) or Breakdown(Brake Neck) or even a G1 Space Shuttle Blast Off(which I believe is happening) if it wasn't for Takara

No one hates Takara. All we are saying is you shouldnt expect miracles since they didnt change anything to the Hasbro Fort Max mold. They are the ones who designed this retool anyways.
Also Slingshot and Wildrider were Hasbro designs and Hasbro Wildrider (you wrote Breakdown) even came out before Takara's. Also, Takara's shuttle Blastoff is not impressive in the least but at least it isnt lazy.

I believe what our friend Hellscream is saying that Hasbro didn't think about making that an official mode.

There's a lot of "unofficial" modes out there for Transformers. That's part of the fun, discovering these things.But I guess there are some people who need instructions for everything in life. >:oP

You making fun of my honeymoon night?

Anyways, about this fort Max fan mode, I see it no different than the gun fan mode on Megatron last year. Its just us grasping for something that isnt there and that doesnt look that great when you think about it.

What I disliked about this new Fort Max was not just that it abandoned its city mode but that it didnt have much of a transformation and looked lazy with much reduced playability from the G1 version. And that it was just a retool. And this doesnt change anything. We just flipped his legs in the air to give the illusion that he looks like his G1 self (which he doesnt) when looking at him dead on. But its not like we can use them as towers when we play, since its not intended. Not like this:

Thats what I recomend anyone disatisfied with this toy.

So argos was a harbinger of prices to come then. It's getting more and more expensive to be a UK fan who loves hunting for them in the shops when compared to the cold, hard efficiency of online shopping.

Checked a bit more on the website; and right enough they do some scalping... their CW deluxes are £18 vs the normal £16 while their CW voyagers are £25 vs the normal £23. But this is just absolutely outrageous.

Love these guys!ALL of 'em! The colors,the sculpts,the modes! (Blurr is a Cybertronian racer again!Squeeeeeeeeeeel!) And that second and third tier characters (finally) get some love-and look amazing!

Also,the fact that I'm impatient for a new Wheelie really says something about this new line for me.

£21.99 for a deluxe...That's insane! They can't justify that surely?

Having never owned a G1 Fort Max and not being able to afford the £300+ the reissue goes for I'm totally picking up the TR version. I don't want to miss out like I did with Metroplex a few years back.

Admittedly I've seen worse, and this site does put it's prices quite a bit higher in general... but considering this is the first domestic price I've seen for Titans Return and it's much above their Combiner Wars pricing, it's not very encouraging.

Can't see them selling many deluxes at £21.99, especially when CW voyagers are currently £22.99 or cheaper.

To be fair, it can be an alluring price if it's an early release. I remember in December I caved and got Blast Off for the price of a Voyager on Amazon because it was literally the lowest price I could find for him.
After that? Nae chance.

Wolfwire? Monxo? I don't even want to know how the hell they lost the ability to use the original names there. Weirdwolf? Is there seriously another company using Weirdwolf as a trademark? How does someone even pronounce Monxo? I feel like to properly pronounce it I would have to rip out your tongue.

The "X" simply makes a "Z" sound, like in the word "xylophone," so you would pronounce it the same way you did in G1 when the spelling was "Monzo."

Just think about what prices will be like in years to come, out of curiosity what are the prices like in the rest of the world?

According to Botcon, the prices for Deluxes are the same as Combiner Wars in North America.
Which just makes me saltier.

The "x" is a weird letter, for sure. I think the only time it's pronounced "ks" is when there's a vowel in front.

From what I understand, Scalping involves an individual buying up large stock and reselling it at inflated prices, not a store raising prices...
