Toy News: Official images and listings for LG-EX Grand Maximus & Greatshot
Grand Maximus is a redeco of Fortress Maximus. He will include his sword and a figure from "Power of the Primes" to serve as a Pretender shell for his Headmaster (the small one)! Whether the Pretender shell will be limited or not remains to be seen (the site seems to mention something about 3,000 preorders, but I will wait for retailers to confirm). Grand Maximus is listed at 27,000 Yen (about $240 USD) and will be released in late March 2018.
Like his G1 counterpart, Greatshot is both a redeco and retool of the Six Shot sculpt. Most notable is the "rhino" beast mode, which requires a good amount of retooling to achieve. Listed as a late March 2018 release, the official listing has Greatshot at a price point of 9180 Yen (about $82 USD).
Orders for these two items on Takara Tomy Mall will take place between October 11, 2017 at noon through Thursday, November 2, 2017 at 1PM. Of course, retailers who carry this as an import will likely have different ordering time frames.
