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.

Toy News: "Titans Return" Cloudraker and Wingspan listed on Walgreens.com

After months of anticipation, the two pack featuring the Autobot and Decepticon "Clones" Cloudraker and Wingspan has finally been listed on the Walgreens web site! However, the item is listed as "Not sold online" and includes a search engine for you to look for a store near you to purchase one. However, I strongly advise that you call any store listed to check on the stock before charging out and possibly facing disappointment.
