After the packaging images just the other day (seen here) for Takara Tomy Transformers Legends LG-EX Greatshot and Grand Maximus, the Hobbymizer Hong Kong discussion Facebook group for Transformers has been producing in-hand images of the figures themselves too!

We've mirrored below shots by Tony Au Yeung, which show that the legs are not glued shut as was the case for Fortress Maximus, as well as size comparisons with Greatshot - of which we have more images in the various modes via Oscar Fung, including the upside-down submarine, and a new change in the helmet sculpt too, thanks to Jimmy Yu. You can check out all of these below, and join the conversation in the Energon Pub!

I like everything about this figure, from the new rhino head to those awesome colors. A minor gripe I have with Greatshot is those chest wings. I'm used to Sixshot's smaller wings so these bother me a little. Still, he does look pretty great in all modes ;)^

Greatshot look absolutely FANTASTIC. I wonder if the price will be reasonable enough for an exclusive? I never like 6shot because he was so bland looking. But THIS is just fabulous. Like a Super Sentai mech! :APPLAUSE:

No kidding, they're usually extremely slow. I only just got my payment request from AmiAmi a few minutes ago.

I got charged this morning, these released kinda earlier than I thought. My problem was Amazon JP had the two jumpstarters in stock, but I had to wait for a certain dark lord of the sith.

Hmmm, it looks like you won't be able to leave Greatshot's head attached during transformation, the horns might get in the way.

I'm still waiting on TFsource to get Greatshot in, but once he's in, he, MP40, G2 Megs, War Hammer Bee, and a time gun for Hot Rod shall be on their way!

After enjoying Quickswitch more than I thought, I am so looking forward to this spiky awesome Greatshot, complete with rhino mode. I plan to do a review with all 3 6-changers!

Is Greatshot a general release, or a very nice and expensive exclusive?

He's a LG-EX, but on I think on sites like TFsource it's only a $5 difference

I know he's an Takara "exclusive". I mean as a special Hobby Lobby or some convention or other.

TakaraTomy Mall exclusive.


So, Takara have it's own post office then? 8-}

Anyway, I saw the price and I must pass. There's too many important figures on my radar and some things have to be skipped.

He said "mall" not "mail". And yes it's an exclusive in Japan so it's not sold at ami ami or the other usual retailers.

Well shi.... I always thought it was Takara Tommy Mail. As in the mail-away only figures you got with the TF points back in the 1980s.

I'd want it but I'll have to keep my money for a possible MP-03 GreenScream.

It's Tomy not Tommy, strong "O" like Sony. ;) Super common mistake.

TakaraTomy Mall is basically to TakaraTomy what Hasbro Toy Shop is to Hasbro: A website owned by the company that sells their products and can have its own limited exclusives.

Has there ever been a toy that was only ever available at Hasbro Toy Shop?

*Only* at HTS? None. They're usually shared with other stores, I guess to offset the otherwise very limited (too limited to be lucrative) distribution, or it's used as a platform to sell convention overstock.

So then thats very different from TTMall. They had a ton of exclusives which were only available there in Japan. Like half the Unite Warriors line.

Actually, there have been HTS Exclusives, but in both cases it was figures that were intended to be sold somewhere else and got canceled after production so HTS sold them instead.

Canceled TRU Commemorative Series Astrotrain (on the left, the right is an Asian release from many years later)



Canceled Asia exclusive "Special Edition" SE-01 Opitmus Prime, SE-02 Megatron, SE-03 Dragstrip, and SE-04 Overkill



Definitely doesn't compare to TTM, though.

Still thanks to users in the Hobbymizer Facebook group, much like the previous story we posted on the topic here, we have some further in-hand images of the recently released Takara Tomy Transformers Legends LG-EX Grand Maximus set, including Grand, the sword accessory, and decals and stickers.

Thanks to Oscar Fung, Ip Kei Tsun, and Chan Wei Choy Mario, we have images of the set by itself, the box, packaging, and - most interestingly - comparisons with the original toy from the late 1980s. Check them all out below, and let us know what you think in the Energon Pub!
