Legends Series LG-EX Grand Maximus Will Be Made, But TakaraTomy Can't Pretend To Have Met Its Stretch Goals

The Grand Maximus preorder period is over, and TakaraTomy have announced the results. While the recolor of Titans Return Fortress Maximus did meet its prerequisite of 2000 preorders and will be made, it couldn’t quite reach the goal of 3000 that was necessary for TakaraTomy to manufacture the special Pretender shell for the smaller Headmaster figure. It’s a pity, but focus on the positive: for the first time since we got Titan Class figures, there is an exclusive recolor available of one. Keep reading for the announcement from TakaraTomy.

Improve your odds of beating the P-1 Grand Prix with Alter’s Labrys

Persona fans should be feeling pretty good with how 2014 went down, from the release of The Golden Animation to the announcements/releases of Ultimax, Persona Q, Dancing All Night, and the eventual Persona 5. You can now add Alter’s Labrys to the list. Doesn’t it feel great to be catered to?

Alter’s Labrys recently went up for pre-order for ¥16,800. That’s a hefty price for a 1/8-scale figure – I would have loved for this to be 1/6 to match their beautiful Shigenori Soejima Aigis. Her face also looks a bit off to me, but the rest of the figure looks great. You’ll also get optional parts to show off her rocket fist feature, and a visor to cover her eyes.

I’m really temped by this one, but that price is a bit too much…
