ENCORE #23 FORTRESS MAXIMUS BOX PICTURES! ETA MID TO LATE APRIL 2013!




HI FOLKS, JUST ANOTHER SHORT POST TO UPDATE THOSE GENERATION ONE AFICIONADOS THAT TF:YUKI FROM TAKARATOMY'S OFFICIAL TWITTER PAGE HAS JUST REVEALED THE UPCOMING BOX DESIGN FOR NONE OTHER THAN ENCORE #23 FORTRESS MAXIMUS!  IT HEARKENS BACK TO THE DAYS OF THE ORIGINAL JAPANESE BOX/ GRID AUTOBOT DESIGN, RIGHT DOWN TO THE FONTS AND PICTURES USED! EXCITING TIMES, IS IT NOT?!  **ENCORE IS ON THE LEFT AND ORIGINAL ON THE RIGHT*



JUST A SIDE NOTE: SEEMS LIKE TAKARATOMY HAS OR IS TRYING TO TIGHTEN UP IT'S LAX QC ISSUES OF LATE BY DOUBLE-CHECKING THE CONTENTS OF THIS BEHEMOTH RELEASE. THUS, CHANCES ARE THAT YOUR FORT MAX BOXES MIGHT BE 'DOUBLE-TAPED' ON THE OPENING OF THE BOX FLAP. AS CONFIRMED BY TFW2005 MEMBER Joshua, HE HAS SENT AN INQUIRY TO TFSOURCE. COM, AND THE CONFIRMATION IS RELAYED AS FOLLOWS:-

Here is an Encore Fortress Maximus Update - be sure to read through! Preorder yours at TFsource here:
Encore #23 - Fortress Maximus
Encore #23 - Fortress Maximus - Early Release Air Shipment

Today Takara pulled back all of the Fort Max stock for a second QC inspection. Due to this some stock did not pass, and Takara has to do a new run. This will not be finished until the end of April. The good news - TFsource will receive all of our stock on schedule shipping out later this week. Many shops will not.

The bad news - all of the first run of Fort Max will be double-taped. Some collectors are very particular about this, so be aware all stock we receive will be double-taped. It's unavoidable due to the circumstances, but also a check to show that the product passed the QC check. Takara did not release any information on what the QC issues are that caused this.''

PERSONALLY, THIS IS GOOD NEWS TO ALL OF US WHO ARE PUTTING DOWN A FAIR BIT MORE OF OUR MONEY INTO SOMETHING AS HUGE AND IMPORTANT AS A FORTRESS MAXIMUS RE-RELEASE, NOT LEAST  FOR THE SHEER SIZE BUT AS A DISCERNING AND 'PICKY' COLLECTOR, THIS GIVE SOME SENSE OF RELIEVE. CANNOT WAIT TO ADD THIS TO MY COLLECTION, BTU AT THE SAME TIME, I AM SURE THAT SPACE- OR RATHER THERE LACK OF IT WILL BE AN ISSUE WHICH MANY OF US WILL FACE!
