The package is same as G1, except the Encore label and No.23
Since the box is so big, there were some damage during shipment. And I got mine from the toy store in a rainy day with heavy thunderstorm...
The memorable boxart. Where is Weirdwolf?
Haven't seen the form box for long long time! Fortress Maximus is just too heavy!
I will not apply the stickers. They will be torn off one day...
I like Encore series, which comes with old school bio card.
Who's this guy? A toy-only character?
I'm the one with all MAX ratings, Fortress!
Like all other headmasters, there is a seat in Battleship Maximus for Cerebros.
I forgot the radar part in the previous pics...
Though the plastic quality is not very good in this re-issue, I'm very satisfied with this Encore Fortress Maximus. There are so many diecast parts! I'm not a diecast freak, but this just tells what Chogokin is! As a toy, the battleship mode sucks. But the city mode is awesome. The gimmicks in city mode are very fun. I like the elevator and push-button start. I can understand 20 years ago, how happy the kids are when playing City Maximus with other small TFs. Robot mode is just HUGE. It is sad that I don't have enough space to set Fortress Maximus for display. He returns to the coffin and stays in my storeroom again... I'll let him out one day!
