New Age H6B Max V2

The blue version of Max (aka Go Bots Pathfinder) has arrived at JunkionHQ!

The Box

Max V2’s box is pretty much the same as V1.

One odd thing about the back of the box is that it shows the clear display stand that’s included with the other versions of Max.

In the box you get the same instructions and three piece “beam up” stand (this time in yellow).

The Name

The one thing that bothers me about this release is the name: Max V2. Their first Go Bot inspired release wasn’t called Flipper V2. They’ve even given names to all of the Bluestreak variants; Murphy for the animation silver and black version, Kitt for Diaclone blue, and Black Rain for the all silver toy version. So why does Max’s repaint miss out?

The Robot

Max is an enormously adorable rotund little figure, now in blue

The Comparisons

Here are both versions of Max.

The Conclusion

Being a straight repaint, this figure is just as good as the original Max. I still wish he had a name though.
