We posted a while back a comparison pictorial review of the latest Takara Tomy Transformers LG-EX Greatshot figure, which you can check out again here, and now thanks to fellow Seibertronian chuckdawg1999, we also have a video version of the same!

Comparisons abound here too, namely with with leader Sixshot, in all six modes for both figures. Take a look, read chuck's thoughts, and let us know what you think in the Energon Pub discussion thread!

Legends Greatshot is a fantastic update to the G1 figure. I really like how the colors pop, especially the gold on the chest. While I am disappointed the head has to be removed for transformation, the figure makes it very easy to overlook. Crossed fingers that we get a Shadow Maru down the line?

I'd love to do a review on this guy. Too bad it's April 17th, and my Greatshot and Grand Max STILL aren't in stock! :-x

My greatshots gone straight into a box o.O One of his knees cant be rotated past the front/unnatural knee bend where as the other one can not. Haven't really noticed any improvements on the knee joints over my hasbro six shot.

No more room for autobots at the mo until I get another book case or resign more to storage. Had to get the Legends version of Twintwist with the Hasbro one being in short supply. Probably going to be the same with Misfire in the end. Doubt I'll get around to chasing up the other legends I'm missing before the Street fighter versions arrive.

I was lucky enough to find a US seller on EBay that had it for a comparable price to BBTS.

My "complete" Cybertron city would consist of 4 Hubs (Metroplex, Fort Max, Grand Max, and Trypticon), and connecting all of them would be ALL TR Leader Class Figures, Legends God Bomber, and Greatshot, as well as SDCC Primitive Optimus. Of course I am missing the most expensive parts of this (Metro, Grand Max, Greatshot, and Primitive Optimus), but hopefully someday...if someone does happen to get all of these, and connect them all to be a mega city, that would be awesome. I'd love to see pics of it. Of course I know Metroplex has no connective plates like all the others do, but it would still be fun to include him.

That sounds amazing, I hope someone tries it with the new lg-ex releases! Out of curiosity, are you including all three Ginrais/Magnus Primes in the layout?

I have TR Leader PM Prime, and Magnus Prime from the *Siege on Cybertron* set. I also got God Bomber (LG 42). However I did not get the single release Super Ginrai, or the Combined God Ginrai set from :TAKARATOMY: . I figure the differences in those were minimal, however if someone does happen to have them all, that would be amazing.

With all of those, you could also very easily make either Nemesis Command or Neo Akihabara City. ;)

Aside from Grand (RKs shipping rates are a bit ouchy, wished it was a mass release via Amiami), I got all of them. Issue now is space and how to fit it all in City shot :(

:shock: No improvements? Really? The knees being a floppy mess like the HB version?

The Takara gremlins strike again!

Nope, Greatshots right leg is about the same as my hasbro six shot with the left leg being a lot stiffer. Maybe my hasbro six shot was pure luck tho because my hasbro quickswitch is a floppy mess.

Finally got my Grand Max, but there's a real tiny issue... :-(

The ratchet swivel joint above the right elbow is so loose that it can't carry the weight of the sword, while the left one is fine. I suspect PE's PC-14X would be too heavy for him too...

Welp, time to grab a screwdriver and pad that joint...

Yes. PE's sword is very, very heavy!

PC-14X is actually the gun in red. GM does not need a 3p sword as he comes with his own sword, in which the issue with mine is that GM's right bicep swivel can't take the weight of his own sword...
