TakaraTomy Legends Series Reissues Canceled Due To Lack of Orders
ExVee - Thursday, August 10, 2017


A little while back, TakaraTomy polled for what Legends Series toys respondents in Japan would be interested in having another shot at. From those results, several preorders went up on TakaraTomy Mall, with the condition that they could be canceled if enough orders weren't received. It seems that has in fact been the case, with Autobase Aichi now reporting a number of those reissues will no longer be happening. Keep reading to find out which ones didn't make the cut!

According to Autobase Aichi, the reissues of LG07 Jetfire, LG13 Megatron, LG31 Fortress Maximus, and LG32 Chromedome have been canceled. That still leaves several that are evidently moving forward, including Arcee which will be having at least its third run, Windblade, Ultra Magnus, and from the more recent part of the line, Blurr, Scourge, and Wheelie, which were all high demand items internationally, and seemingly hold enough interest still within Japan to justify the rerelease run to happen.

LG-EX Grand Maximus is a recolor of LG-31 Fortress Maximus which was an exclusive Japanese recolor from the original Super God Masterforce cartoon. Grand Maximus includes his god master sword, Maximus figure, Grand Headmaster and headmaster head plus weapons! Grand Maximus has 3 different modes of transformation:Base Mode, Battleship Mode and Robot Mode! If enough preorders are booked by Takara they will include an exclusive Grand Pretender Suit with this piece! Read on for full details.
Our latest gallery offering for you is TakaraTomy's Legends LG46 Targetmaster Kup. Most prominently featuring the second of the brand new Targetmaster figures, representing Kup's partner Recoil. Recoil is notable for being almost all new parts as compared to Firebolt, with just the thighs being common between them. Kup also sports retooled parts, with most of the arms being replaced with more cartoon-accurate rounded pieces. The face piece is also completely new and aims for a cartoon inspiration. Plus Kup has a new, more involved-looking deco that favors media appearances more than the Hasbro version. We have over 200 photos of the toy ready to view, with quick-jump links to specific parts of the gallery. Click through to get started!
We brought you the first word last night that the LG-EX Grand Maximus exclusive would feature a bonus Titan Master Pretender shell based on Power of The Primes tooling if at least 3000 preorders were received. But there was yet more hidden in the promotional copy that we've found out since then - one of which calls the toy itself in to question! Keep reading to find out more!


TakaraTomy Mall has activated the sale page for Greatshot, the rather unexpected retool of Leader Class Sixshot representing the character from Transformers Victory. Greatshot features several new parts, including the chest, helmet, tops of the shoulders, and the wolf head has been changed for a rhino head. The Headmaster component features use of the Hasbro "Revolver" tooling, making its debut in Japan as Sixshot features a brand new Headmaster mold in the Legends Series. Like Grand Maximus, Greatshot is due to ship in late March, 2018. Keep reading to see the pictures!
The advertising banners went out a little early today, but as of noon Japan time, TakaraTomy Mall has launched preorders for Grand Maximus, giving us access to the stock photos for the first ever Titan Class new-character recolor. Grand Maximus seems to not feature any new tooling, but subsequent information from official sources seems to back up our interpretation that the Pretender shell for the Titan Master will be made available as a bonus item if at least 3000 preorders are received for Grand Maximus. Click through to take a look at all the new photos!
