From the Figure King magazine, issue 223, and via the Loopaza Mega Store on Facebook, we have some new images of the Takara Tomy take on the latest Titan in town - Fortress Maximus! Part of the Legends line in the Japanese company's taxonomy, the big bot can be seen below in its multiple modes, with his sword, interacting with other figures from the line, and in a nicely lighted shot. Check it out!

You know, thinking about it now I'm surprised Takara didn't give him a large rifle-type thing like he had originally and is actually on the U.S. box art. It's also kind of weird seeing them show of the leftovers from Metroplex as features too.

Japanese Fort Max had different box art depicting him wielding his sword instead of a gun. And his Japanese fiction portrayals never had him using his toy's guns, as he was strictly a sword-wielding bot in Japan.

I was talking about the TR Fort max box art, I know he has the sword on the ol' Headmasters box art but I didn't know that he never actually used his guns in the show. I really should get that Japanese G1 anime box set that they have out one of these day.

Given all the discussion over Takara's remolding on the Technobots, it's a little strange they didn't do more to fix Fort Max. The sword is nice, but there's a lot of flaws a little extra work could've fixed. Ramps that went all the way to the ground, extra guns to complete the battle station mode, wheels...

Well... there's a big difference between retooling a voyager and some deluxes and retooling a titan

Not to mention that Takara are treating the Titan as a new ship/body for Fortress, so in that regard it doesn't have to be too close to the original.

Who is the red robot in the second image. Fortress comes with a gun? (Fortress as in the transformed head not the super mode)

Wheelie. And the gun is the turret inside the clear-blue chest compartment...thing.

They retooled Devastator and he was a titan.

Right, but he came in parts and was a considerably smaller titan, right? They were essentially just retooling some voyagers.

In any case though they probably could have done some minor retooling - heck, if you want to count it I guess giving him different sounds is retooling. I think? I dunno. But I don't think they could've done anything as major as ramps and extra guns.

Changing a sound box does nothing to the tooling of the mold, ergo it is by definition not a retool.

Legends Max looks nice, but I think I'll just get the US version this time around. A modestly different deco on a guy I have no attachment to isn't worth the extra dough to me.

The little Headmaster is retooled.

I am aware that Takara gave him a Fortress head instead of a Cerebros head, but that is separate from the specific suggestion that altering the sound box qualified as a retooling.

Who said the sound box's noises being different qualified as a retool?

Bold my emphasis. And I think this was answered. ;)^

In general if I make what seems to be a reply post without quoting anybody, I'm responding to the most recent post or one that is still in conversation, and didn't feel the need to quote the immediate previous post.
