Featured in the first few pages of the 2010 IDW comic Last Stand of the Wreckers, Fortress Maximus is known to many as a behemoth of a Transformer. While easily handled by the tyrant Decepticon Overlord and then tortured to near insanity, the 'Warden' did not get much of a lifespan. Despite Fort Max's shortcomings in the comic, customizer GetRightRobot decided to recreate the LSOTW version of Fort Max in all of it's glory. Check it out below! For more details on the figure, check it out here!

Fantastic job, GRR! :x :APPLAUSE: :APPLAUSE: :APPLAUSE: A couple of quick questions though; can he transform and what parts did you use? :???:

Any reason you decided to make him so big?

That is simply amazing. Makes the original Fort Max look dull and boring. Very impressive work.

Thanks friend. Yes he and his minions transform. Max converts into rolling battle station, and city/fortress. I used a G1 Fortress Maximus as the base chassis and just went from there.

Here is a link to a video I made that covers alot, including the CAD designing work on the faces.

This is incredible. I kept thinking "no way did he use a G1 Fort Max" and then when I saw that comparison shot with Overlord I was blown away. Really great work mate. I love the new face sculpt and the work on the shoulders really stands out too. Cant wait to see your next project.

Freaking amazing. Fort Max was always an amazing toy for me when I was a child mainly because most it was almost as tall as I was when I first got it. I was not thrilled when they showed him as a pushover in LSOTW, but I understood they couldn't show him in his glory. As for this kitbash/model. My hat is off to you. This is such amazing work that I honestly still keep finding my mouth open in shock and awe. Good job. :APPLAUSE: :APPLAUSE: :APPLAUSE:

:shock: Case and point? If you could manufacture these, they would sell like freakn hot cakes on the fourth of july!
Astounding work on an astounding figure that I honestly thought was perfection! you have taken this to a whole new level! you, good sir, need your own private wing in a museum!
quick question though.
I can mod new hands and guns and attachments and everything else like there's no tommaro, but, when it comes to painting? well, let's just say, G2 looked better than my paint jobs, and my jobs are scratchier than the american unicron trilogy's plotline! #-o (I know) any tips on what kinda paint to use? any type of lacker or solvent?

Thankyou very much for the compliments! And I'm sure your paint jobs are not as bad as you think. As far as advice on paint, for brush and airbrush I really like Testors Model Master paints and Citadel (games workshop/warhammer) paints for bright colors. For enamels I usually mix down with a little thinner, but I think prep work is the key. A scotch bright pad does wonder to helping paint stick. An airbrush is great tool too, but a cost effective alternative is rattle can. Krylon has a line of spray paints called Fusion. They are designed for plastic applications and I have had very satisfying results with them. If you can isolate a part and spray it, do it, spray is always smoother than brush. Honestly, check out www.procustomizers.com There are FAR MORE talented people there that help get you where you want to be with paint. Hope that helps.

The neck is the only part that bugs me a bit but as for the rest...fan-f***ing-tastic!!!! I never in a million years would have had the stones to mod a G1 Fort Max unless I happened to have a spare one lying around (which I'm guessing and hoping is what happened in your case) just because of the price tag involved with this figure. You have done a phenomenal job! :APPLAUSE: :APPLAUSE: :APPLAUSE:

Truly amazing stuff! I especially like the pic of the Custom Max next to the original. All of the gimmicks and action features preserved plus the added poseablity and stability. Great work!
