Fellow Seibertronian Cyberpath found some new images of Takara Transformers Legends LG31 Fortress Maximus on Amazon Japan. We finally see their version of "Cerebros" and "Spike"/Emissary which are both called "Fortress" in Japan.
While the head for the deluxe robot is very different, as a comparison will show below, it seems that the tiny head-sculpt of the headmaster has remained the same. You will also find new images of the giant robot himself.

That's the head being used for SDCC isn't it? It looks very similar to what hasbro is doing with cerebros for SDCC

It's a very pretty figure but I'm at a point where I look at my metroplex and notice how dusty he is. He's honestly a display piece. I've probably taken him down and "played" with him once this year and I know that's what will happen to Fort Max so I'm honestly contemplating not getting one.

God I wish it was easier to decide between versions of this guy. Metroplex was pretty easy.... Chome? y/n

I think takara's central grey tower, and the base "ramp" looks a lot better. and the sticker windows are a really nice plus.

But... SDCC's thighs look a lot better with some paint on them.

I'd argue the Hasbro retail version has the least going for it.... but at this point *it* has the exclusive titanmaster.

Yeah, what gives, Takara? Hasbro's already shown theirs for SDCC, so now you've got free reign to show off your own Master Sword. Let's see it already.

I am getting the retail US version because it'll have English phrases and the rebirth headmaster.

Meh. All I need is to see a Master Sword from Takara to fully swing me over to their Fort Max.

Only thing i want from this release is Cerebros. I'm also curious to see if my PE Warden can be incorporated into Fortress Maximus at all. Switch heads and use the big ass gun for CW Fort.

Wish Takara would release some Headmasters now, don't have patience to wait till August and September. :lol:

Also wish that Rebirth-Cerebros were sold separately so I could pose him with the other Headmasters. Because Fortress Maximus is where I draw the line.

btw LG Hardhead, Skullcruncher, Weirdwolf, Blaster, Shockwave, Wheelie & Blurr are available for pre-order on HLJ again. Either someone cancelled their order or HLJ had added more -- http://hlj.com/scripts/hljlist?SeriesID=6038

You know, if Takara wanted to, I could see them doing a special exclusive or campaign figure release of the Rebirth Cerebros head and body without Fort Max as the actual Rebirth cartoon version of the character with Spike as his Headmaster, with a bio describing him as the Rebirth cartoon incarnation who controlled Fortress Maximus in another timeline from the one that Fortress controlled Battleship Maximus in, allowing Takara to treat "Fortress" and "Cerebros w/ Spike" as separate characters, and allowing Takara to do a show-accurate version of Rebirth Cerebros (Hasbro's has blue in its deco for some bizarre reason).

Maybe this special Takara Cerebros toy could even have its own unique voice clips taken from the Japanese dub of The Rebirth, spoken by either Ken Narita (Cerebros), Kōji Ochiai (Rebirth Spike), and/or Kunihiko Yasui (Rebirth Fort Max).
