Hot on the heels of Titans Return Wave 1 Legends comes the first sighting of the big bot himself, Fortress Maximus!

Edmund Liu reported on the Transformers Collectors Club Australia's Facebook group that he spotted Fortress Maximus at Myer. We've also received a sighting from Nath Wayne who spotted Fortress Maximus at Perth's Myer.

Excited that Fortress Maximus is appearing across Australia? Well you might want to either console your wallet now, or wait until the mid-year toy sales or other retailers pick him up as he will set you back the healthy sum of $360 AUS!

Also thanks to Seibertronian board admin from down under Burn, we can share the in-hand images of the first figure in the wave 1 of Legends class Titans Return line: Wheelie! The source is the same as the sighting reported yesterday - Sharky of Ozformers - and the images can be found mirrored below from the Facebook post.

That sum of 360's about as healthy as 49 meat feast pizzas in a row

Also, here's a sentence I never thought I'd ever say - fuck Wheelie looks sexy.

For me IDW has redeemed him. Wasn't until he pulled a sniper rifle out and started taking headshots on sweeps that I finally went "well alright wheelie, you are officially awesome"

I'm excited to finally retire my GDO Jazz retool of wheelie and put this guy with the rest of my 86+ CHUG shelf. The slingshot however won't be retired.

Yeah, but no one will be buying that Fort Max at that price aside from the desperate and rich. Would you (or anyone else here) buy a Fort Max if it was in the states right now at 260$ (that is the actual US$ price when you convert it)? At that price, might as well just get the takara one. So I am not envious in the least. To me this is no different than a scalper on e-bay getting early samples and selling them for close to double.

Not saying I'm envious, more like shocked they got some so quickly. Like those ebay sellers who ot Victorion early and were selling her for about $30 more than she should be :MAXIMAL:

I'd guarantee if he was on shelf now for that price you'd still never see one because you'd still get the scalpers that will buy them all and jump on the bay and sell them for over $300 and people will buy them because they want to be first to own him.

I've actually ran into one once. He was buying all the masterpiece Soundwaves and I had to guilt him into giving me one. It was pathetic.

In all seriousness, I'm pretty sure that's firepower/fireblast.
The tech spec symbols all look so weird now

Yes and if you get the japanese version, he will play the theme song.

Maybe for Fort Max, but it isnt the case for every toy. I had Optimus Primal Platinum edition on the shelves for 200$ before anyone else and no one bought him. He didnt appear on any of the scalper sites either. That was a scalper proof price. But for Fort Max, I dont know. Would the youtube generated money froma review really cover twice the price of retail? No clue.

And MP Starscream, Prime and Soudnwave were all heavily scalped because of their low prices (much lower than their Takara couterparts). This is very different from the huge price increase seen at retail here.

Well for one thing; literally the biggest transformer of all time - not to mention a re-imagining of the previous owner of that title - is more appealing than a shitty recolour of a mold no-one cared about if you put them around the same price. Fort Max I could possibly see scalped. Platinum Primal wasn't scalped because there's a grand total of seven people in the world who want him

Wheelie wanted a taste of heaven:
got a burger, looked mighty fine,
Something's missing, but he's a seven!
Pop the cap, shake one time.

For a guy that uses a slingshot like a boss, I wouldn't put it past wheelie to use a cricket bat 8-)

It's really just an explanation for why he has no weapon - the picture's his slingshot exploding.
