FORTRESS MAXIMUSTHE ORIGINAL G1 TRANSFORMER BY HASBRO Fortress Maximus Original G1 Action figure . This toy is in excellent shape! All joints are tight, no rusty screws and minimal wear on the decals. This action figure is from my personal collection. I am the original owner. It has not changed hands or been scavenged for parts. It is missing only one accessory (one gun for the Gasket and Grommet figure).
Fortress Maximus is by far, the largest Transformers toy ever to be produced. In robot mode it stands 22" (or 56 cm) tall, nearly 8" (20 cm) taller than its in-fiction rival Scorponok . The original retail price was over $100USD (approx. $120).
In all modes, Maximus has a wide array of pop-out (non-firing) guns and gimmicks. Its left leg hides a small prison cell , plus it has a swing-out cannon/helipad. Its right leg has a small storage compartment. Its torso has a gear-activated spinner for the detachable radar array accessory; a "control socket" for Cerebros ' "communications tower" mode. It also has a working elevator that can lift small toys up to its central ramp to be launched in its altmodes. The crank for this elevator ends up in a very unfortunate position in robot mode. Each arm has a long ramp on the back with sliding launchers for small vehicles. Thanks Wiki for the text and photo. ... read more
