    I guess he can at least hold a semi-scorp mode...

    Guys, I'm unfamiliar with the Sixshot mold and I just got Greatshot in today. Do the knees lock into place when he's in robot mode or are they kind of just hanging there? When I lock the knees in place it kind of looks like I'm flexing the legs a bit.

    Ugh it's still a bummer that Sentinel Gigantic Black Zarak didn't come with his Tyrant Spear... I would've taken that over it's gun!

    Handling my copy of Greatshot, the white paint on the cockpit came with a few small chips out of the box and while transforming him has chipped more, which is weird because I don't remember bumping anything into that parts. The robot mode knees are tight, but do they lock into anything in robot mode? It feels like it slides into the slots, but doesn't tab solidly into anything, so when you bend the knee, it unlocks itself. Do all of the Sixshot molds have this problem?

    Grand Maximus is nice. The "Cerebros" robot's right shoulder is very floppy, the combined head was difficult to fully attach and the top part of the combined sword was MUCH harder to combined with the larger bottom part than Maximus' sword.

    Still, not bad for the ¥20,000 yen I paid!

    On my LG Sixshot they kind of click into place, but are easily dislodged.

    It's really odd to me, takara / hasbro didn't engineer in a hard locking point for his knees in robot mode. A very odd omission on an otherwise fun toy.

    Wouldn't be the first time a toy is functionally flawed because a design oversight.

    True, but the legs are CW transformation-like and they did tons of those, you would think a few good tabs and holes would have been a no brainer for them.

    Takara apparently screwed some retailer orders and sent by a very slow boat.

    BBTS just put the DNA kit up for Grand Max. Hands, feet, croutch cover, ratchets, & waist cannons. A little steep at $75, but got my preorder in.

    Ebay:
    It’s been up since 4/24. It’s really not a bad deal since it has all the parts from DK-02 and DK-04 except for the Cerebros leg parts (which most people didn’t like anyway).. the kits were $60 and $40.
