On Friday night’s LeBrain Train, G1 Fortress Maximus was my #4 favourite Transformer of all time. I don’t have a G1, but I have an (even better) Encore reissue. I mentioned during the show that although the figure is now in storage, I did film an animated Transformers movie starring the toy. He featured in a big battle scene with Galvatron, an homage to their original fight in Marvel’s Transformers #79. I filmed the whole thing on the May long weekend in 2013 but lost my script and never edited it together.
However I’ve dusted off a couple shots, edited them together and I present to you a clip from the unfinished film Transformers 4: Fortress Maximus.* Music is “Immortal” by Max the Axe, from Trillion Dollar Threats.
* The series is as follows:
- The Transformers: Death and Rebirth of Optimus Prime (unreleased)
- Transformers 2: Revenge of the Schnauzers
- Transformers 3: The Ghost of Starscream (unreleased)
- Transformers 4: Fortress Maximus (unfinished)
