As a follow up to the images they provided us earlier, our valued sponsor TFsource dropped by with some high res images of Takara Tomy's Super GT GTR-04 Maximus! Like all figures in the line he's a reuse of their previously released Alternity Convoy mold. These images give us a much better look at the figure's new head, weapon, and Race Queen mini figure. The TFsource pre-order page can be found at the following link or by click any of the images found below.

Y'know? It really should be Spike in that dress.

Not when Spike never bonded with Fortress in Japan. ;)

Wow, that's nice. Excellent detail, and a great little minifigure too.

Although she really needs a shirt with the infamous line "Fortress Maximus Has Come Himself" emblazoned on it.

(Hint: Skip to the 35 second mark to hear the line in question)

I'm glad they all have different heads.

Didn't realize he had a new head and sword. Both are very nice.

Dang. He's really cool looking. The import price is really high, though. I'd love to have him side by side with my Kibaya Max. :sad:

All I can say is that this piece is one that makes me want to say something here about it. And all I can say is that unless the piece (and its racing queen) have mass-produced paint related QCs, this is a definite contender when it comes to being my favorite piece. Granted, he is still a G1 piece and will not have me sacrifice any other contenders in my "30 strong" project (i.e. 20 G1 Cybertron and their variants, 5 Destron/Decepticon and their variants, 5 Cybertron/Autobot variants of G1 characters). But for me, the only way this can be topped... Takara Tomy would have to either reissue "26" Grimlock or "C-328" Victory Saber... Or just simply an "ALL SPARK" toyline. :lol:

And also... I am with RhA on the idea that they should have made a "Crossformer" version of Spike. Because after seeing his ALL SPARK reboot incarnation, I think he could easily pull it off! :lol:

  • The US version will be white, the Takara will be more true to the white and coloring of the G1 Metroplex[/*:m]
  • The Japanese version will include two guns, the US version just 1 gun[/*:m]
  • It is believed the Japanese version will feature chromed/metallic paint apps the US will not, but this is not confirmed. When we asked Takara did not say yes or no[/*:m][/list:u]

I was wondering that as well. That, and wondered why he of all people could have missed an opportunity to make a Crossformer joke.

That, and Spike merged with Cerebros. Which makes your suggestion be validly amusing... As he would be a racing "queen". :lol:

How come we don't get two guns? Scumbag Hasbro doesn't include a second gun in their release of Metroplex...

2 guns? That's points for Takara, but I'm not sure an extra gun is worth the extra $100.

Have you guys considered that the extra money goes to his "going west-ern" themed musical called "Have Extra Gun, Will Import"? :-?

GT-R Maximus = Fortress Maximus

Her name is Fortress Maximus? That's... odd.
"Her"? :???:

Oh, you mean the Race Queen figure. Didn't see the "with the" in your original post. :oops:

The Bot is Maximus. The girl is his Race Queen.

It's cool. ;) And thanks. I'm getting this guy. Never owned an Alternity before, and the Race Queen looks rather interesting.
It's not Alternity.

It's Transformers: GT.

Also, I will SO wait for the domestic Metroplex release. =;


Just for the record: It's not Alternity. It is a collaboration with Super GT Racing, as a way to celebrate Super GT's 20th anniversary. And as we speak, GT-R Maximus is the 4th and final GT-R GT300 model. And we might see other models be added in a hopes of showing that it is more than a "simple" retooling. Namely because they have 12 more teams and around 2-3 more car models. And trust me, Alternity was just a way to wrap up Takara's original work. This is way cooler. 8)

In all cases, the whole theme is a lot more interesting than me explaining continuities (which is a subject I have been studying for the last 16 years, thanks to RPGs). Because they have fast cars, racing queens, and four GT-Rs that are Prime, Saber, Megatron, and Maximus. All I have are cookies. :lol:

Okay, okay. ;) Well, this will be the first from this line. How's that work? ;) And it's this 'Race Queen' that's got me interested. Won't lie there. :p But he does look cool as well.

WTF ??? When did white stop becoming white ? Could they be a little more specific ? Do they mean "off-white" or "bone-white" for the American version like we always get ? And I hate when they use the term "G1" without specifying whether they mean "G1 toy" or "G1 cartoon".
