- Christmas Maximus is an unnamed Autobot from the Armada portion of the Unicron Trilogy continuity family.
"Christmas Maximus" is a company commander, overseeing the platoon Hot Shot served in as a young warrior on Cybertron.
He believes that new recruits require a firm structure to become seasoned officers, and emphasizes mentorship and unit obedience as a result.
Since he's the size of a normal Autobot in robot mode, Christmas Maximus transforms into the world's smallest spacecruiser, or possibly a city for Penbots.
Christmas Maximus asked Hot Shot to assume a mentoring position for the gifted but inexperienced Autobot recruit Wheeljack.
Wheeljack was caught in a fire during battle and presumed killed. When an arrogant Autobot officer threatened to convene a court martial against Hot Shot for disobeying orders and going back for him, Optimus Prime intervened and took Hot Shot under his direct command.
- "Christmas Maximus," of course, is a fan-coined name for this red and green Fortress Maximus model generic, whose color scheme resembles Quickswitch's.
- It's possible that Christmas Maximus has been deemed worthy of wielding the Matrix Cannon, a non-corporeal weapon that directly taps Primus's power to purify evil. The wielder's nobility acts as a force multiplier for the Matrix Cannon's effectiveness, so let's hope Frankowski was wrong about noblesse oblige, eh?
