Welcome to part two of my Encore Fortress Maximus review. If you missed the first part, you can read it here.
As I stated in my last post, the reason that Fort Max is a two part post is because of frustration. Frustration not because of the figure, but because of photographing him with the original. I'm not even going to do much of a review, just give you some of the horrible, horrible pictures that I took and try to erase the entire experience from my mind.
Here's where the trouble started.
Last year I built a very large light box using wood and white sheets. While not perfect, it worked for when I did my post on the original Fortress Maximus, When I tried to do the picture above, I just couldn't get it right. I kept adding more and more lights, but it just always looked the same. That is actually the best looking picture I could get even after adjusting it in Photoshop CS2. It just looks...rough.
Anyway, as you can see, I haven't put the decals on Fort Max yet. I'm still debating as to whether or not I should keep him out of the box. There really aren't any differences between the two, other than the huge honking sword. I knew it was big, but I didn't realize that it was essentially the size of Scorponok!
There was a small Q/C issue with my Encore Fort Max as shown below:
Can you notice the difference? Besides the sparkly eyes, the rubsign on the Encore is crooked. ZOMG! Quick, someone call Tomy! The sticker is a little crooked! I want my money back!
Overall, I'm really pleased with Encore Fort Max. He's a worthy addition to my collection. And that sword is awesome. Enjoy the few comparison pictures that turned out decently of Fort Max in city mode!

And finally, here's a few pictures of just Encore Fort Max in city mode.
Next post, we get back on track with better photography!
