Takara Tomy has posted official images of these new exclusive Transformers on their website. Below you will see images of all the modes for LG EX Legends Greatshot and Grand Maximus and images of their Headmasters. We can see that Greatshot has a fair bit of retooling, like his shoulders and beast mode head.

Also, as it is now known, Grand Maximus is not guaranteed to come out. It is stated that 2000 pre-orders need to be through Takara Tomy Mall for this toy be produced. If 3000 are ordered, he will also come with a Pretender suit (which is a Power Master Decoy suit), which can be seen below as well.

Man, I guess that shade of green on Grand Maximus is REALLY hard to photograph right. In some shots it looks almost black or very dark grey:


But in others, it's a much softer green:


That's the same plastic

Crap. If it's through Takara Tomy Mall, does that mean the 2000+ preorders MUST come from Japanese buyers?

The yellow paint on the sides is animation accurate in robot mode, so it's fine with me. As a bonus, it's also a toy accurate detail as well. Yes, this does create inaccurate yellow panels on the sides of the alternate mode, but I can let those slide. They don't look bad to me, honestly.

I'm assuming some of the big online retailers/importers have a way to get around this. I'm not too concerned about 2,000 orders happening.

Hope you're right about that. These are two imports I really want, but didn't think were going to be happening.

Green? There's never been any green on ANY Maximus...well except for that Generic in Armada (I'm not calling it what others are... 8-} )

I hope so. I really want that GreatShot, and depending on expected release, I am considering that Maximus too.

At the very least, I haven't seen any such stipulation for Greatshot. He seems firmly in the 'definitely happening' camp.

And, man, while I still want Sixshot more... that is one hell of a good rendition of Greatshot. Someone put a lot of heart into that retool!

I'm starting to wonder if there is any reason for me to buy the Hasbro figures anymore. The Takara ones generally look so much better to me.

Well, these are Takara exclusives that Hasbro has never done, so you can just buy these without guilt!

The fact that the previous legends reissues did not pass the treshold asked for tells me that its just TTMall. If there was a way to get around it through other retailers, then there would be enough demand for nothing to have been cancelled, which wasnt the case.

Yeah! It's all they needed to do - considering it's all the original did - but it still feels like they went above and beyond :)

It really is all they needed to do! But they did it in the way that I've said makes these things even better: they did the retooling in the right areas, and the colors just smash it home.

Great shot: definite. and then I will have all 3 generations 6 changers!!!! Though he definitely looks the best :-D

I really find myself wanting both of these, although i might only be able to pull off Greatshot. Takara really seems to be churning out the Masterforce characters, wonder if that helps Piranacon's chances of coming out.

Same here. This would have been so easy for Hasbro to do, instead of Quickswitch, but I guess the fact that QS wasn't changed at all (save for the Titan Master) made it an easier/lazy release. I would have been perfectly happy with just Six & Great, since originally QS was a completely different toy, but having all 3 (even though the middle kid isn't a true representation), will be nice.
