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!

Just in from TakaraTomy is the first reveal of two upcoming exclusive Transformers products due in early 2018, and they're both quite unexpected! First is Greatshot, a retool of Sixshot based on the character from Transformers Victory. This features a new helmet, robot mode chest, shoulder caps, and beast mode head. The other is Grand Maximus, marking the first new character recolor of a Titan Class figure by either TakaraTomy or Hasbro. And it appears if there are more than 3000 preorders for Grand Max, it will come with a bonus Pretender Shell - borrowed from a Power of The Primes tooling. Click through see the promo images!

Thanks to Autobase Aichi, we now have TakaraTomy's official photos for March's Legends Series releases! LG-64 Seaspray and Lione doesn't look that different from the US release, with Lione being the most different; LG-65 and LG-66 Twin Twist & Top Spin now have red and black Targetmasters who alternate colors the way the Jumpstarter Twins swap their blue and white, and that is just awesome. Also, clearer copies of Star Wars Powered By Transformers 01 Darth Vader! Click through to see!

We're pleased to kick off this weekend by bringing you a detailed photo gallery of the just-released Legends Series LG45 Targetmaster Hot Rod! Featuring a retooled vehicle hood and robot chest as well as a completely reworked deco, it's quite distinct from its Hasbro counterpart - and that's not even counting the brand new Targetmaster partner figure! Firebolt features ball joint shoulders, swivel hips, and ball joint knees, as well as a very detailed sculpt! Click through, and you can see it all in our gallery of nearly 200 photos right now!

No joke. We wish it was a joke. The comics packed in with TakaraTomy's Legends Series releases for Sharkticon & Sweeps, Hot Rod, and Kup, as scanned by TFW2005 member PoweredConvoy, reveal that Hot Rod and Kup's Targetmasters are none other than Shaoshao Li, Hot Rod's Kiss Players partner, and Sue - Marissa Faireborn's daughter whose design is patterned after Marissa's KP look. Keep reading if you dare, but know that this may be slightly NSFW as poor Shaoshao still can't get any dignity.

TakaraTomy has put another free comic up on their Legends series page! The 4-page short is entitled "Targetmasters Chapter: PROLOGUE," and features the arrival of Targetmasters to the Legends world. Most interestingly, it shows the Autobot Targetmasters - Crosshairs, Pointblank, and Sureshot - being converted into Headmasters. Has TakaraTomy gone above and beyond and created all-new figures for these characters? Will they be creative reuses of existing molds? Or is this all just a big tease? We have no idea, but keep reading to see the comic for yourself!

Thanks to Alfes2010 we have some early in-hand photos of the September Legends releases. Their official release date is this Saturday, but before that we've got the opportunity to see TakaraTomy's Sharkticon, Hot Rod, and Kup compared to the Hasbro releases of the same molds. Hot Rod and Kup notably have new tooled parts, as well as their Targetmasters setting them apart even past the deco differences. We've got these first three shots mirrored below, keep reading to see!

Just up on HobbySearch are new official images of the Takara Tomy Legends LG45 Targetmaster Hot Rod, LG44 Sharkticon & Sweeps, and LG46 Targetmaster Kup action figures. Get a look at these toys in and out of the box with shots of their robot and alternate modes. All of these figures are slated to be released in Japan this month. Read on to check out the images in gallery.

TakaraTomy's official site has posted the complete stock photo sets for February 2018's Legends Series releases. We've already seen these toys a fair bit today with several stages of stock image drops taking place in the early hours of Tuesday. As usual for the official site listings, these include added looks at the Headmaster components, as well as full turnarounds for each toy in their different modes, leading to quite a few photos altogether! We've got the whole mess collected together in the gallery below for more convenient viewing - click through to take a look!

Shared through Planet Iacon on Facebook, we get to see the first looks at February's Legends Series assortment, which was first revealed last week in a leaked text listing. The assortments includes the Clonetrons - that is, the Decepticon Clones Pounce and Wingspan, Targetmaster Windblade who, contrary to popular speculation is not packed with Fracas! And finally G2 Megatron, leaning in to the purple G2 deco, and including the Fangry Titan Master accessory - decoed as Savage Noble from Beast Machines! There's more detail to be seen in the images, click through to have a look at them in our gallery!

Thanks to the translating efforts of Sanchimaru and editing by Jalaguy we've got the English version of the comic packed with Legends Series Dinosaurer - Trypticon - now available for everyone to read. While certainly at a bit more... moderate of a pace than the web comic prelude, it's still fairly dense with things going on, much of which involves some downright convenient destruction of old toys transtectors almost as if a new batch of toys was on the way in a few months! Click through to read the comic and for a link to the translated prequel!
