Looks fun! Will someone please translate or at least provide a summary? It is cool to see Titan Metroplex in this story along with Fort Max. Bring on more Titans, I say!

Hmm...I guess that the Autobots don't have much of a clothing budget for T-Ai, unless they're just a bit too eager to see a nearly nude human female. :lol:

Basically, Fort Max decides to go out for a hamburger, he meets up with Metroplex who asks him to pick up a chicken sandwich while he's out, then at the end he realizes that he left his wallet on Cybertron.

Yep,......I can't read it either.

So what's with the beat up Brave Maximus early on? Seems a little out of place.

Ehe... that's one of the many retcons from... wait for it...

Kiss Play Position!

Long story short, lots of time/dimensions traveling, RiD Fortress Maximus was used in the past to protect something, and G1 Fortress Maximus is based on him. The End.

It's a reference to Kiss Players Position, in which Brave Maximus got sent back in time to crash-land on the Planet Master, where Fortress would see it crash and take inspiration from Brave Maximus to perfect his Headmaster technology and construct Battleship Maximus.

Hmmmm...and given that the Maximus battleship configuration and the Macross are probably loosely based on Whitebase, I believe that particular time travel trope is an Inverse-Macek-Loop.

BullsEye!

Kind of also a bit like how the Ark crashed into prehistoric Earth. Fortress reversed engineered the divine sourced technology into what would become planet Master's super science which G1 Optimus Prime didn't use back in the year 2000 up 'cause another retcon had Brave Max becoming the core of Autobot City aside from Metroplex being the mobile sentient portion of it. Just imagine if Optimus reversed engineered brave Max back then, then the war would have been over.

I'll be able to pay for him this Monday :x

Btw, sort of a reverse. In the original G1, Cerebros/Fortress is smaller than the regular Hm. Now, it's him who is taller (the head version compared to the deluxe Hms).

Fyi. Inspiration for Tai bikini armor archetype can be traced from these three especially the last one (US popular culture did,t add Jane Fonda ).

Leda

Princess Leia

Red Sonja

Except they do in bishoujo style

Wait, I've never seen this done before. Is this something intentional that Hasbro/TT forgot to tell us about or is it just something he figured out? There's no real need for this, but it's strange coincidence if it wasn't intended. When one of TT's designers does this it feels intentional.

This is the first time we've seen this right? I had no idea the whole head was white and blue, I'm not sure how I feel about it. I mean the helmet covers it, and it's not a deal breaker but it's unexpected.

I'm quite surprised that nobody is complaining about Broadcast's out-of-place blue hinge pieces. I take it everybody understands that's due to Twincast's blue? :)
