Default Foreign first-release TOY sightings

This is just to keep track of what toys are being released in major markets (North America, Asia, Europe) before us, to see what could be here soon.
(and after us if we actually got something first)

This topic will try to include as many "first sightings" of major and minor toys that I come across, and anyone can post here if something is noted as a first sighting on one of the global fansites (or if you've found something first while in that country).

Significant or fan-focused items are likely to also have their own News topic, so don't think that all new toy releases now need to be posted here. This is more for the toys that us older fans are LESS likely to buy, so would waste space if they had their own News topic for being found.

Posting comments about certain toys in this topic is okay, but please see if that toy already has its own news topic first, especially the more significant "fan-focused" items, and post the comments there. (so that it is easier later for people to scroll through the last few pages of this topic to see if something they think is new has been reported yet)

Now that I have monthly Japanese Toy Listings in the News section, and sometimes post updates there if something is now released, this topic has pretty much been just for Hasbro toys... but is not restricted to just Hasbro toys. (it's just easier to look at the Monthly Japanese listing now, if you are looking for the release status of a TakaraTomy toy)


This here is a great archive of first sightings in various countries of the more significant toys, which includes our first sightings, as we keep track of each other's archives.
(and it usually takes me a few weeks to update our own archive Checklist)


------------------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------------------

In the last few days, the following items have been reported to be found:

Universe Voyager Leo Prime, Overload in USA. (Inferno is previous wave, and already out there)
Animated Voyager Atomic Lugnut, Wreckgar in USA.
Universe Wave 4 Deluxes (Cheetor, Hound, Cyclonus, Starscream) in Canada.
Animated Roadbuster Ultra Magnus in USA. (Shadow Blade Megatron is previous wave, and already out there)
Universe Wave 5 Legends (Cosmos, Warpath, Rodimus, Wheelie) in USA.
Animated Sunstorm and Gen1 Shockwave multipacks in HK/Robotkingdom.
Mighty Muggs Wave 1 (OP, BBee, Meg, Soundwave) in HK/Robotkingdom.
Universe Deluxe Dinobot, Smokescreen in HK/Robotkingdom.
Universe Ultra Bruticus in HK/Robotkingdom.

Store exclusives Countdown and Darkwing (Universe recolours) have been found in UK and US in the last couple of weeks. No word on if they they are coming here, as that was something asked and Hasbro AUS has not yet replied to it.
