Fortress Maximus

Autobots
Function: Cybertron City

As Fortress Maximus never saw a US release, he has no official bio. Shown here is the bio for the Japanese "Brave Maximus" version.

The warrior Plasma transforms into head mode and combines with Cybertron City's Master Brain to form the warrior Brave. He fully understands and trusts his fellow Cybertron fighters. When Brave calls out "Transform!" and changes into head mode, the ground splits asunder with a mighty roar, and Cybertron City changes into a colossal Transformer 350 m tall. His ultimate deathblow attack, the "Final Burn," fires off all his cannons at once, enveloping the surface it strikes in white light and annihilating evil. When he transforms into the Super dreadnought-Class Battleship Maximus, he can carry Cybertron warriors and use the Space Cybertron Net to travel between fixed stars at the speed of light.

Fortress Maximus Additional Info

Brave Maximus was considered by Hasbro for an exclusive online order, possibly using unsold Japanese stock, but he was never released because the toy could not meet safety requirements specifically the drop test, which specified that any toy dropped from a height of six feet or more should not break into sharp, jagged pieces - a requirement that this gigantic Transformer could not meet.

Other Comic Overview

The Japanese Kiss Players manga expands on Brave Maximus / Fortress Maximus' role on Earth, explaining that Primus himself placed him there in order to seal the Angolmois energy, which was the essence of Unicron who had been defeated at the dawn of time, and would only break free billions of years later when he would reduce Earth to wilderness once more, and the Destron Galvatron would try to claim his power during the Beast Wars Second series.
