Fortress Maximus Cancelled!

Post by 1SoundWave1 » Fri Sep 20, 2002 1:00 am

I just received word from Action Figure Xpress that Hasbro have cancelled the release of Fortress Maximus for 2003. Hopefully things will change but at this time there are no plans to produce this item next year.

*EDIT*
This may or may not be news to you if you already heard due to me not checking the toys section where this exact news has already been up and been talked about SORRY

I think you should boycott all their future products, man.

More toys for me...

PP my heart goes out to you...
I'll remember to think of you as my Takara reissues arrive... :D





I know this was a really mean thing to do... But what the hell, someone was going to have to say it.

Although Karma can be a real bitch and I'm sure I'll pay for it. :D

I can get the reissues, but BBTS is going to be selling the TFs from Hasbro as far as Armada goes.

...I'd really wish that Hasbro would make up their collective minds. First, they say they're not bringing it, then they say they are, then they say they're not again.

STOP CONFUSING US!!!! :mad:

Look people, an acclaimed source that I have has told me that Fort Max is NOT cancelled. Just delayed for a long period of time. Hasbro is having a very hard time getting them through customs, and the more that they try to bring over the harder it will get. But they are trying to bring as many over as possible to satisfy many many customers. Now, will Fort Max appear in 2003, possibly towards the end, but 2004 is a more likely shot

Thundercracker is right on the money....
I had a buddy who imports certain things from Japan and China, and the U.S. Customs are getting really tight and the cost isn't worth the shipping...

The end result will be Fortmax released in the U.S. with a price none of us will be able to afford....

Thus the delay in my own opinion....

B.T.W. I have a friend who works in Customs who gave told me a similar story....

Well, I sure hope they bring Fort Max out not that I'll be able to afford him.:mad: I think Hasbro has been known for saying one thing, then turning around not too long after and saying something else.:eyebrow:
"Such heroic nonsense."

And how do we know that at that time we'll get the shaft again?

I think they lied and told us that they were planning on releasing him so that they could avoid the inevitable "you suck" letter from people that want him. Well, I tell you what. If he does get cancelled, my letter's gonna be even nastier because they led me on.

We're talking about the CR Brave Maximus, which was originally not planned to be released. I think that Hasbro knows we want it, and thus will say that they will bring it, only to screw us over at the last minute.

It's a damned conspiracy.

I think that they, like me, care more about the re-issues than any new stuff. If I had to choose between Fort Max (either RID or a reissue) and the whole of Armada, I'd choose Fort Max. But, that's just my opinion.

Three things:

1. I'm not an idiot. I just don't like to be lied to or otherwise f***ed around with. That is exactly what they're doing with the Fort Max deal. If they're not lying about the actual release, then they're lying about why it's delayed.

2. They aren't gonna cancel the series because I want something they don't make. They'll most likely ignore me being the big, faceless, corporate b*stards they are.

3. They don't care about you. Why defend them? It's gonna be idiots (if you wanna use that term, I will too) like you that allow them to step all over you.

Furthermore, I'd rather have Fort Max than all the repaints they put out that weren't in the show.
