The newest releases in the Takara Tomy Legends EX line have started to get into the hands of fans who pre-ordered them. Thanks to our very own 2005 Boards member Type-R for collecting several in-hand images of both Legends EX Greatshot and Grand Maximus that have surfaced over the web.
LG-EX Grand Maximus is a redeco of Legends Fortress Maximus, based on the character seen in the Japanese Transformers: Masterforce cartoon. The new deco is very nice and cartoon-accurate in all his modes and components. While the mold is the same as Fortress Maximus, the legs on Grand Maximus aren’t glued together like Legends Fortress.
LG-EX Greatshot is an extensive remold/repaint of Legends Sixshot. This release is based on the Cybertron warrior from the Japanese Transformers: Victory cartoon. We have images of Greatshot in all his six modes. The modifications on the mold allow Greatshot to have a new rhino beast mode, as seen in the animation. Greatshot’s helmet transformation is pretty interesting and innovative. The horns tuck into the top of the helmet so it can fit into the torso for alt modes. You can see it on this video. As a curious data, we have a small image of the pack-in manga, which shows Star Saber riding Greatshot in rhino mode.
