Gotta admit... even if Max himself isn't much to write home about, that Cerebros is pretty beautiful.

So the G1 Fort Max's works with the new one? I wonder if that means all old headmasters can work with new ones..... :-?

They're similarly sized, but the G1 head just rests there, nothing's attached from what I can tell.

Augh! These new pictures... Man, I have to admit that he IS awesome. Sigh....

I don't know if I'll be able to resist if I ever see it live in store. Curse my plastic adiction! :HEADHURTS:

Wee knee gun?

Cerebros really is the star of the Fort Max show.

question for anyone with their hands on a fortmax: in his "city mode" if you were to bend his legs up at the knee 90 degrees from the official configuration would it look at all like fan mode towers ala the original. also do the legs open up like metroplex?

thanks

Whats up with the blue shoulders on Cerebros? It's not like you can see them in Headmaster mode.

Are his only guns the ones on his boots? Third party companies are gonna make a mint with this guy.

I guess the headmaster bits ate up most of the budget for Max.

:SICK: :SICK: :SICK: :SICK: :SICK:

Disgusting piece of byproducts made from combustible geologic deposits of organic materials, formed from decayed plants and animals that have been converted to crude oil, coal, natural gas, or heavy oils by exposure to heat and pressure in the earth's crust over hundreds of millions of years.

FAIL! Won't touch him with a ten inch stick!

Just being 8-}


That Cerebros looks good! Regardless if its the Rebirth version or the rumored The Headmasters version.

Even Fortress too looks Boss! Looking forward to Ryan's high res photographs.

P.S. G1 Cerebros also fits with the modern version? Nice!

Question:

1. Is it similar to G1 where you can remove Spike and still connect Cerebros the head? Or is "Spike" needed to attach the Cerebros head to the main body?

Having looked over things and read thoroughly over the responses, I'm going to give an opinion now.

I will buy him, but I will wait until at least around Christmas when he goes on that 20-25% off sale. He is very cool looking, and I really like the IDW Fort Max, but this guy is just not ringing off as worth his full $150.

I am impressed and in love with Cerebros and the whole double headmaster thing, and he has an awesome face sculpt. the body also looks very powerful and imposing.

But where I am bummed is his lack of weapons and originality. The fact that he is a retool at that size point is kinda lazy to me, all justifications aside, and the fact that he got virtually no retooling with regards to transformation is a bummer. I'd love a more compact city mode like the original, which I do not want because it doesn't have the look I like. I'm also disappointed that, him being a fortress, he should have more guns and playability, yet he only has 2 sets of leg guns, that one thing and then Cerebros' gun. that's just small. I would prefer weapons over electronics, especially for a city/fortress.

so yes, I will buy him, but he will most likely not be my favorite titan. Metroplex I already have, and I think Fort Max looks a little better than him anyway, but he is no where near Devastator. That was a true titan in size and effort. :MAXIMAL:

Welcome back everyone, bet you thought we were done with Transformers Titan Return Fortress Maximus for today huh? Well it turns out there's nothing stopping the big guy (or KalEl) from breaking headlines again, this time with a video review! We get to see articulation, stickers, sound effects, and so much more. Check it out below, and stay tuned to Seibertron.com: home for the best Galleries and Conversation around!

UPDATED with Generations Metroplex comparison video!

Relieved to see that his joints are improved from Metroplex, even if just slightly.

The sound effects are pretty underwhelming, but maybe they're just shortened and the US release will have more to it, maybe?

Just thought of something; if they had kept that cannon in his forearm that Metroplex had and colored it red, it would've been a close approximation of [one of] his wrist pistols (wristols?). Bummer, but not a detractor for me.

The bit about his legs opening was answered above, here is the quote:
they do open up but from underneath so its that back half that opens out not the gun half, means they don't really work in vehicle or base mode. hes really just lacking from not enough guns, i forgot to say the shin guns dettach and can go on his shoulder or have a fold out handle but they dont show that feature in the instructions. still dont know what that lil leg bit is meant to do though, its hollow and weird.

G1 cerebros just sits there. He doesnt connect. This is not different than having any other TF that is the right size just stand on the headless body.
And you dont need to connect spike to have him fit.

Like Metroplex, I expect there to be a handful of versions to choose from. And this is too big a purchase to buy multiples.

ALL THAT SAID, after watching that video it's going to be difficult not buying the first one I see on shelves. :shock:

First off, Damn you because this is your fault. You are the one who has given me logic that makes sense to me, especially now that I'm older, more mature and running out of room. So Thanks :lol:

Secondly though, it is true. I will still buy him, he's just not what I had hoped for looking at pictures and videos. He looks damn sexy but lacks the croutons that make the salad that much better. He's the main course, but lacks that all important dessert. A cake without enough icing. Still worth chomping down on, just not as chompalicious as it could be :MAXIMAL:
