Where is my body?

Grand Maximus, the younger brother of Fortress Maximus, participated in the Masterforce conflict. Much like his brother, Grand Maximus' intelligence and personality were actually contained solely in his smallest component, Gran, while his Transector, Grand, functioned as a mech to boost his strength to that of a normal Transformer. Grand also possessed the ability to don a Pretender shell in order to disguise himself as a human. Gran's final and most impressive transformation is his mighty battleship, which, like his brother's, transforms into a body of immense stature while Grand himself transforms into its head.




Super God Masterforce cartoon

Grand Maximus was sent to Earth to aid Autobots by his brother, Fortress Maximus.

I want to tell you about the Transformers!

This character article is a stub and is missing information on their fictional appearances. You can help Teletraan I: The Transformers Wiki by expanding it.

Masterforce manga

Grand is described as a Transformer created base on the design of Fortress Maximus. His Outer Shell can grow as big as the normal size of the Transformer.

Zone OAV

Grand Maximus was seen among other High-ranking Autobots (such as Road Caesar, Landcross, Metalhawk, Lander, and the Autobot Godmasters) when Dai Atlas is sworn-in by Victory Saber as the new Supreme Commander of the Autobot forces.

All he needs is a Micromaster Targetmaster and he'll be PERFECT.
  • Grand Maximus (1988)
    • Japanese ID number: C-311
    • Accessories: Gran Headmaster unit, Grand large Headmaster unit, Grand's Pretender Shell, Onomus, Koka, Photon Rifle, Dual Laser Cannon, Grand's Mini Laser Rifle, Cog's Laser rifle, radar dish, Master Blade, Grand's sword
As a redeco of Fortress Maximus, Grand Maximus shares the title of largest Transformer toy from Generation One. Grand Maximus transforms from robot, to city, to battleship.
Blade of Evil's Bane.
In all modes, Maximus has a wide array of pop-out (non-firing) guns and gimmicks. His left leg hides a small prison cell, plus has a swing-out cannon/helipad. His right leg has a small storage compartment. His torso has a gear-activated spinner for the detachable radar array accessory, a "control socket" for Grand's "communcations tower" mode, and a working elevator that can lift small toys up to the central ramp to be launched in his altmodes. (The crank for this elevator ends up in a very unfortunate position in robot mode.) Each arm had a long ramp on the back with sliding launchers for small vehicles.
Grand Maximus' head can be removed and transformed into a robot called Grand. This component also transforms into a communications room that combines with Grand Maximus' city and battleship modes. Grand can additionally fit inside an included pretender shell. This shell, unlike most other Autobot shells, was robotic in appearance rather than human. Grand's head can also be removed and transformed into a smaller robot, known as Gran.
Two smaller vehicles, Koka and Onomus, fit into the toe areas of the Brave Maximus robot. They can combine into the robot Cog. Also included were a gun for Cog, a gun and sword for Grand, two larger guns and a larger sword for Grand Maximus, and a radar dish for Grand Maximus' battleship and city modes.
This mold was used to make Car Robots Brave Maximus, and Robot Masters' "Cybertron Base".


  • The package of Grand Maximus is labeled with the franchise logo of The Headmasters instead of Super-God Masterforce, though he first shows up in the later franchise.[1]
