Default SEPTEMBER 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 SEPTEMBER 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...
August 2017 listing
July 2017 listing
June 2017 listing
May 2017 listing
April 2017 listing
March 2017 listing
February 2017 listing
January 2017 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)

Apparently, the Japanese release of Cogman has been delayed from its October release, to an unspecified date.
With the Hasbro release being spotty in some countries, and uncertain in most other countries (with retailers still stuck with wave 1 Deluxes and don't order more stock), Cogman is proving to be similar to Stinger from TF4 - the new "cameo" movie character, who ends up having a toy teased, and then get a limited release (Japan) or cancelled altogether (Hasbro). This time, it could end up being the other way around.

Also, it looks like the September Legends toys (Hotrod, Char/Kup, Sharktron/Gnaw) have been pushed back again... this time to September 30th.

BTW, just noting that the 2018 Generations book is also now included here, with a release date of November 20th.

Just got a reply from Robot Kingdom about when they are expecting the Q4 2017 reissue of MP-36 which appears separate from the JP reissue. They said they are expecting him in November.

Looks like Asia did their own release then, which is now out... but Japan is doing a reissue that doesn't come out until January 31st, along with Ultra Magnus.
