“HUGE NEWS!” read twitter feeds for toy collectors today. Out of nowhere, the news hit that a re-issue of the classic (and literally HUGE) G1 Transformer Fortress Maximus was coming next year. This is the kind of thing fans hear of way in advance nowadays, so it’s nice to actually be surprised. A mint-in-box Fort Max from the 8o’s could sometimes get in the $800-900 range, so the demand is there. How much for a fresh one? You can have a MIB Encore series Fort Max for $350… or $400 if you want him a few months earlier than the general release. Yep, the toy companies have us right where they want us.
