Product Details

After many years, the ultimate Transformer is finally reissued! Standing nearly an impressive two feet tall, this is the original greatest and largest Transformer figure ever made! Encore: #23 Fortress Maximus converts from city mode to vehicle mode to robot mode and is accompanied by Cerebros, Cog and Spike figures. He is outfitted with rifle, radar dish, mini-laser rifle, photon rifle, and dual laser blaster, and Master Sword.

Fortress Maximus' inexhaustible courage is tempered by his preoccupying desire for peace. Despite his immense size and power he fights only out of necessity. He is armed with leg-situated twin laser-guided mortars, heat-seeking dual laser blasters, and a fusion-powered photon rifle. His secondary array includes repair, detection and communication gear. Fortress Maximus deploys a pair of armored vehicles, Gasket and Grommet, which in turn combine to form Cog. Max's detachable head converts into Cerebros, binary-bonded to the Nebulan leader, Spike. The Autobots and Decepticons are marooned on Nebulos, their interaction with the native populace ultimately resulting in the Headmaster process. While the Decepticons ally with the planet's tyrannical rulers, the Hive, the Autobots join the planet's beleaguered freedom fighters. Zarak, leader of the Hive, seemingly gains the upper hand by converting the Hive's city into the massive Scorponok, although the latter is thoroughly foiled by the arrival of the newly created Fortress Maximus. Note: Due to Takara QC issues all pieces will be retaped/double taped. This is how they shipped from the factory.

Fort Max
By Curtimusprime on March 06, 2019
Great reissue reminds me of my original in all his glory
Epic addition
By Christopher Kowalchuk on December 31, 2014
Just fantastic!!!
Very Worth It!
By Tim Cook on February 20, 2014
I had balked at the price but in the end the want won out. I remember when Fort Max came out originally and I wanted him then.

Well worth the wait and worth the price. TFSource delivered a quality product and I will order more from them!
Completely worth it!
By Einhazard on February 06, 2014
What a great figure! If you can afford him, you won't regret it. He's huge, heavy, and lots of fun. He's got a very solid feel to him, and there are all different kinds of little gimmicks to enjoy in his alt modes if you have some smaller micromaster or cyberverse figures. As an added bonus, he looks amazing with Perfect Effect's Warden figure (which you can buy on TFSource as well--and TOTALLY SHOULD). I was worried about the price tag at first, but it was worth every penny. EVERY. PENNY.
Also, big props to the TFSource's handling of my order for this guy. You guys rock. Thanks!
Decepticons.....prepare to face Fortress... Maximus...!
By Benjamin Stenger on May 15, 2013
This piece is so awesome, he needs no introduction, but that was his intro line and needed to be said. The new Metroplex toy will be bigger but will not and could not be G1 maybe pre1. 1987 was his first appearence, Metroplex was not that size in 1986, and the names were superfluos interchangeable monikers they called Frenzy, Rumble and vice versa. We knew who was who as fans, these creator inferences weren't explained until way later on, 20 plus years really? Bob Budiansky came up with the premise and the bible but didn't have complete control over these things.
Everyone has seen the comic, cartoon, or anime versions so to start he is the Japanese anime version/iteration of the beloved toy. He has the Master sword both small and large present in the Japanese cartoon for Fortress and His transtector body Maximus when formed together in head formation. Also Grommet and Gasket are included. The Fortress Maximus head's eyes are tampoed making that the only true difference outside of the molding date and slight package variation. This isn't the original but I would never pay over a thousand bucks for anything opened save for LioKaiser (bought) or Dinoking Giftset period well maybe Big Powered but someone got him for $600 recently, but 1 episode of zone, doth not a season make, nor do I buy toys for a periodical as a personal preference....period.
So please buy this product, I endorse it highly and have effectively supplanted my wife with him...well I took off my ring for a little while does that count? Avoid the whammy and get this version, instead of a scratched up torn boxed yellowing nightmare of nostalgic proportion/inflation. Cool yes, practical no, but reliving your childhood fantasy without financial ruin......priceless.
