This review of Greatshot comes from chuckdawg1999
on the TFormers forums! His summary: "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?"

we have images of the comic packed in with LG-EX Greatshot. Though much of the detail of what's going on is hard to get from just the art, one element is pretty clear: the expectations of some fans have been met, and it looks like Greatshot's Headmaster is being explained as a revived form of Chromedome's friend Jack, who Sixshot killed in The Headmasters
. This takes advantage of the Titan Master sculpt for Sixshot taking design cues from that character model, and that mold element being reused for this release. Click through to have a look at the new comic.
We've got our first look at the comic included with LG-EX Grand Maximus. These first images are photos of the pages, so they're not the absolute highest quality, but they're pretty good for now. Not that we think higher quality scans would lead to the comic making all that much more sense in absence of the dialogue to tie it together. The show-stealer though is an appearance of Black Zarak embodied as a recolored Doubledealer using the Scorponok Titan Master that came with Grotusque. Not something we expect to ever see for sale, but an interesting use of resources. You can puzzle along with it in the gallery below while we hope for a translation in the near future!
We've got some good looks at this month's special Transformers releases from Japan straight off of Twitter. First from Alfes2010, we have more pictures of Greatshot, including a side by side image with an original Greatshot. Plus a bonus of Greatshot and Sixshot switching faces. These photos give a really nice look at the robot mode and its retooled parts, though not really putting any attention on the alt modes this time. Click through to check them all out now!
Oscar Fung has been among the first to receive the exclusive Legends series figures being released as we close out the month of March, and so over on the Hobbymizer Facebook group, we've got some early photos from him doing the basic rundown of Greatshot. Greatshot is of course a retool of Titans Return Sixshot featuring several new pieces, some of which is shown in detail among the standard assortment of alt mode photos. It looks like it's all turned out pretty well! We'll be watching for further photos of this as well as Grand Maximus, the two of which currently represent the end of the Legends series for the known future. Click through to see the mirrored pictures.
Following up from yesterday's post of box panel images for LG-EX Grand Maximus, we've got more first look package images in from Robot Kingdom's Facebook page, now showing Greatshot, the other TakaraTomy Mall exclusive releasing at the end of this month. For this one we have front and back shots, which of course mostly show us the stock photos we've already long since seen, but also give us a look at the boxart. You can find the new images in the gallery below!
Just in from Robot Kingdom's Facebook page, we have some images of the front, back, and one side panel of the box for Legends Grand Maximus. Notable as the first redeco of a Titan Class figure as a different character, Grand Maximus went up for a provisional preorder on TakaraTomy Mall last year, pretty quickly meeting its minimum production goal. Grand Maximus is due for release very soon; Robot Kingdom notes their preorders are expected to begin shipping as of this Saturday, March 31st. Check out the mirrored images below.
has posted images of the last currently known assortment of TakaraTomy Legends
figures! Seaspray with Lione, Topspin and Twintwist all look pretty good, and the Jumpstarter Twins' Targetmaster partners complement their owners' blue and white colors nicely, using the same concept of alternating color schemes with red and black. Keep reading to see the images mirrored here!
Japanese toy blogger Tagoal

has published a synopsis of the Transformers news in this month's issue of Hyper Hobby,
one of the many hobby magazines published monthly in Japan. While the mechanical translation is typically shaky, it seems as though the Legends
series, with its higher standards of deco, will be continuing alongside the Japanese release of Power of the Primes!
But there is still a catch - keep reading for details.
Loopaza Mega Store
has posted images of the packed-in paperwork for LG-60 Legends
Series Overlord! The figure's bio card and (mercifully Safe For Work) comic are on display, showing off the new tooling for the figure's chest and Headmaster robots as well as a new mode created for the comic. ...but, kind of an expensive
one. Keep reading for details!
Twitter user @kinoko51
has posted in-hand images of their just-purchased round of January's Legends
releases from TakaraTomy! In addition to the Clonebots Fastlane/Fastclash and Cloudraker and Blitzwing, there's a side-by-side comparison of the US and Japan releases of Overlord. Keep reading to see!
TakaraTomy has released via their official Transformers PR Twitter account a set of photos showing off the small sheet of optional stickers that will be packed in with the upcoming LG63 G2 Megatron. The sheet leans in to the roots of the deco, including a MEGATRON RULES sticker for the chest emulating a major piece of the Hero Megatron toy's factory applied stickering, as well as the option of a G2 Decepticon symbol, or Predacon logos, speculated to indicate that the Legends pack-in comics may be assigning the identity of Predacon Megatron to this toy's Headmaster. We've mirrored the photos, and you can find them below.

Fresh off the forums, chuckdawg1999 has brought us a video review for the just-released legends series Slugslinger from TakaraTomy. LG55 features the Targetmaster Caliburst and sports a modified deco from the earlier Hasbro release. Chuck shows off both the Titans Return and Legends versions side by side to highlight the points of difference between them, though outside the choice of dedicated weapon versus Targetmaster, the only real changes come down to colors. You can watch the review right now, embedded just below in the full post.
