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.
