Toy News: Takara Tomy "Legends" Grand Maximus confirmation, artwork and more!

A couple weeks ago Takara Tomy revealed their intention to release "Legends" versions of Grand Maximus and Greatshot. However, the production of Grand Maximus depended on the giant robot getting 2000 preorders. Now according to the official Takara Tomy Twitter feed those preorders have been fulfilled! However, orders to get the "Pretender shell" for the Headmaster figure require 3000 preorders and that milestone has not yet been reached.

Ben's World of Transformers sponsor BigBadToyStore has put up preorders for the upcoming Legends Takara Tomy exclusive Greatshot and Grand Maximus figures! In G1, the Greatshot figure was a retool of Sixshot while Grand Maximus was a redeco of Fortress Maximus (with a Pretender shell for the head).

Ever since Fortress Maximus and Six Shot were released as part of "Titans Return" line fans have speculated that Takara Tomy would redeco Fortress Maximus as Grand Maximus and retool Six Shot into Greatshot. Now it looks like we have confirmation that Takara Tomy is doing just that! Two images have been added to the carousel at the top of Takara Tomy's page showing both these characters!
