Default APRIL 2017 Japanese & HK excl toy items

These are TakaraTomy toys (and maybe some significant licensed items) currently known from official sources, scheduled for release in APRIL in Japan (as well as in Asia as most Japanese Transformers toys are also released through Hasbro Hong Kong).

These monthly lists will be archived on the Transformers Checklist (link to come) if you need to refer to these listings later (if anything is found out later, because these monthly lists won't be updated after their month ends).
Some recent listings for reference...
March 2017 listing
February 2017 listing
January 2017 listing
December 2016 listing
November 2016 listing
October 2016 listing
September 2016 listing
August 2016 listing
July 2016 listing

Dates and details can change at any time - Approximate yen prices listed are just a rough guide to their retail price in Japan.
Links were active at the time they were first added and are only there for reference/proof of details - I do NOT endorse or promote any of those businesses.
(posting corrections or additions are greatly appreciated)

When the Movie toys are released in Japan on April 29th, the ToysRUs stores have another one of their freebie promotions - spend 2000yen and get a free Optimus "Temenos" sword... limited to 6000 units.

Looks like the sword is the first of three Movie freebies to come out in Japan over the next few months, with the other two being a shield and axe. When the dates are known, they will be added to the monthly Japanese checklist.

I just got my Design Award MP-13 and the Megatron Gun that came with it is the same colour as the old MP-13 . Released early somehow, must be old stock in a new box

Now that TLK-02 Barricade (the global "secret" toy) is now officially revealed, it has been listed on JP online stores, and I've added it to the checklist above.

Maybe the new colour version was abandoned. I guess keep an eye out to see if the new anime colour version shows up at all, and then maybe chase up your source for an explanation or exchange (of the Megatron gun).

The sword is now out, and it is a nice shiny chrome version of the TF4 sword (which was orange with the JP movie toy, and a grey version was the freebie at that time)
