|Function: Headmaster Leader|
|"Prepare for war, but strive for peace."|
Valiant, courageous, a warrior without peer... but peace is his most fervent wish. Fights only out of necessity; believes all violence is ultimately pointless and counterproductive. Transforms to battle station and city modes. Armed with twin laser-guided mortars on legs, heat-seeking dual laser blasters, and fusion-powered photon rifle. Has communications, detection, and repair equipment. Controls two armored vehicles, Gasket and Grommet, which combine to form Cog. Head transforms to semi-autonomous Cerebros, who is binary-bonded to the Nebulan leader, Spike.

|Additional Toy Info |
From his release in 1987, Fortress Maximus held the title of "tallest Transformer ever released". He retained this title until the release of the Titan class Generations Metroplex in 2013, who topped Fortress Maximus' height by two inches - however, Fortress Maximus is the bulkier toy so pound-for-pound a case can be made for him being the biggest.
