For just one day only (and the day is almost over so you'll want to act fast!) you can go over to Big Bad Toy Store and score a Transformers Legends LG-EX Grand Maximus for the low, low price of $169.99! This is an unusually low price for the Takara Tomy Mall exclusive, bringing it to just a little over the standard US retail price for Titans. Big thanks to o.supreme on the forums for pointing this out.

Transformers News: Steal of a Deal: Legends LG-EX Grand Maximus for $169.99 on BBTS

The limited time sale is part of BBTS's month long 20th anniversary celebration which occasionally includes some good Transformers deals. They're currently also featuring Power of the Primes Leader Class Rodimus Unicronus for $37.99, Siege Deluxe wave 1 for $49.99, and MP-29 Shockwave for $94.99.

If I wasn't saving money for Piranacon I would.

I just couldn't justify it at the $209 sale price it had been sitting at for a while on BBTS. It is my lease favorite titan mold, but I do have designs on a combined titan and TR leader super city, so at $169...

Yep, ordered.

Now to explain it to the wife...

I'll think of something.

Just ordered MP Shockwave. Way too good of a price to pass up.

Now I have Soul Of Chogokin Gypsy Danger and MP Shockwave on order. I've never ordered from BBTS before, so would the delivery be pretty quick? I live in Florida btw.

if you used the flat rate the shipping speeds are reasonable. They tend to take their sweet time getting it out the door though, but once it does it's pretty quick.

From what I've heard paying for faster shipping tends to get things packed and shipped quicker.

I'd say 7-10 business days once you click ship for their flat rate shipping.

I have a continuous PoL with them and I'm never in a hurry. They normally force me to ship at least one thing, so I just ship it all.

NP and good luck. They're my go to online retailer of this sort. That $4 shipping and PoL is hard to beat.

Well I just checked, and it seems Grand Max is sold out. Glad I did not hesitate. Now, previously I've seen Greatshot at 10% off, but I'm hoping that sometime in the next month, they'll do perhaps a bigger sale, so I can knock that one off the bucket list as well.

Out of curiosity are you double dipping on Soundwave (TR regular and Target Bumblebee movie exclusive) for your mega-city?

THAT is an excellent question....and the answer is NO. I fully admit my logic is somewhat flawed, but it makes sense in my head, as to what I believe is an *individual character*, although it does lead me down the path of getting more than the same deco on occasion.

It seems I've been talking about this concept, and making a video for 2+ years, but if I can get Greatshot and Big Powered before December, I'll probably do an initial version then, and a final version in early 2020 when I *hopefully* get Omega Supreme & Astrotrain.

Currently my Cybertron City is:

Fortress Maximus
Trypticon
Grand Maximus
(on the way)

These 3 Titans will form a triangular formation, and all the *Leaders* will fill in the spaces in-between. Omega Supreme's eventual addition will make this more rectangular.

T30 Metroplex will be at the center of it all. Though he has no official connectivity, I couldn't leave him out.

Leader's
Soundwave (I cannot justify getting the BB re-release, as its *basically the same*)
Blaster
Sixshot
Quickswitch
Black Shadow
Overlord
PM Optimus Prime
Magnus Prime (I could not justify getting LG35 Super Ginrai or LG-EX God Ginrai, as it's *basically the same)
LG 42 God Bomber (see above why no LG-EX)
Primitive Optimus Prime (Yeah this one may seem inconsistent, but I felt it was different enough to warrant purchasing)

As a Canadian it hurts my wallet but I snagged Grand Maximus and Not-SG Rodimus.

Don't know when I'd ever see them again for that price.

Mine will end up using all the same parts, plus the extra Bumblebee Soundwave, but I got lucky and found him on clearance for $13, so couldn't pass that up. I'll be going for a more asymetric design as it will have to fit on a pool table.

^Nice I look forward to seeing it. Most of the leaders are displayed in Robot Mode on a shelf in my sons room, and Titans in a hall closet display. But when I get this together, it will probably take up a good portion of our living room floor. It will probably only be assembled for a couple of hours to shoot the video, then back to bot mode for display.

Not as earth shattering as yesterdays deal, but the previously mentioned PotP Rodimus Unicronus, and MP Shockwave are still present, also now are Siege Deluxe Wave 1 for $50, a pretty good deal if anyone has been holding off on getting these. Now may be the time.

That Siege Wave 1 deal is making me :BANG_HEAD:

Paid full price for a wave 3 hound since I couldn't wait on my Ironfist custom. :HEADHURTS:

I'm glad some people got a deal on this guy. He looks great. Hoping and praying for an eventual Metrotitan, too.

Metrotitan would be awesome. Since I was able to get an original T30 Metroplex, I'm not sure what the Quality of the TT Legends EX rerelase from a couple years ago is. If there was a lot of degradation, or if it would be viable to re-release it again, with Metrotitan colors.

Having recently handled my T30 Metroplex, even the original's joints have a hard time holding him up. Metrotitan might warrant need re-tooling there anyway to be an up-to-snuff Titan Class figure, with everything the design team has learned since 2013

I'm guessing due to the small quantities they'd make... that he'd have to be as-is, no retooling. Still, guessing with the small quantities of runs — and the fact that there have been no repaints — that the mold would stand up fine.

Think about the seeker mold back in the day. They did like 13 or more recolors. Surely they could crank out a few more of this guy before the mold falls apart.

That aside, it seems like they have been making the molds to release his team and partners (micromasters and parts-forming guys). (ie. they're available) I could see them using that as incentive to 'grease the wheels' for collectors... knowing they would get matching team members in the box. Crossing my fingers.

Yeah my only concern is, as of late, the Selects line that have been re releases of recently used molds have mostly been floppy messes. It's amazing to think an original Transformer can be remade after 30+ years, but one from a year ago has difficulties....just one reason why I'd be concerned, but thrilled if they could pull it off.
