    Here I have my latest transformers custom a Grand Maximus:

    started life as Brave Max. I have given the full treatment;

    New color scheme to match up with Cartoon appearance but given him a more takara shiny look also; He being Articulated at the knees and Arms and hands and ball join head and LED for his eyes; Only huge issue find a place for photos for this custom.... here little history of Grand:

    Japan continued their trend of exclusive series in 1988 with Transformers: Super-God Masterforce, which took place a few years after the events of Headmasters. Fortress himself put in one very brief cameo in the show, appearing as barely identifiable behind a communication screen full of static, but the series featured a very similar character - his younger brother, Grand. The Grand Maximus toy was the same as Fortress Maximus, except for its new coloration, and the most notable change - the Headmaster component


    thank you everyone for stopping by and checking him out.

    Oh yeah, I agree. It's badass.

    Plus, it's a nice unofficial way of celebrating the first U.S. release of Masterforce.

    Love the paint aps, but the knees look...odd. They look disproportionate to the rest of the figure.

    Perhaps some styrene circles w/detailing on either side of the knee joint would bulk it up an blend it better while maintaining the new poseability? Nice paint job, as usual, very nice piece overall.

    Very nice! The knees are a little distracting but I don't think its too bad. Only thing that bugs me are the hands, they don't really match the G1 look (a little too pointy ish). Regardless this is an awesome piece you should be VERY proud of!

    There's one minut error you made... Grand's biggest change is not the Headmaster component, but the addition of his Pretender shell.

    Other than that, awesome job!

    Knees should generally be roughly the same size as closed fist, love the paint, but I've seen better work from you

    Its a great build, but the hands I.M.O are too good for this type of transformer. The hands should have a proper owner and by that I mean another tf.

    Looks cool, but the knees are a little odd.
