Default JANUARY 2018 Japanese & HK excl toy items

These are TakaraTomy toys (and maybe some significant licensed items) currently known from official sources, scheduled for release in JANUARY 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...
December 2107 listing
November 2017 listing
October 2017 listing
September 2017 listing
August 2017 listing
July 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)

Just added reissue Legends (Generations Titan) Megatroplex, which I totally forgot/missed is being reissued as a TakaraTomy exclusive, under a different product number.
It was originally released in Japan in September 2013 as TG23, but will be reissued January 27th as LG-EX.
As with most TTM exclusives, it looks to be released in Asia as well.

Actually it was TG23, the LG line didn't exist in 2013.

Dammit... I was meant to type that, because I had to look up when it was released.
Fixed it now, not that it matters.

Don't know about that one specifically. But Takara's CQ will often open a sealed item to inspect/fix an issue. Lots of people had double taped items from Takara in 2016. (I guess they had a bad year for QC that year)

As noted in the HLJ Dealer topic, the January items have been released, which includes the two Masterpiece reissues and the three Legends toys (Clones, Blitzwing, Overlord).
Some in-box images of the Legends toys can be seen here... and out of box images should be soon.

The reissue of Metroplex should be out any day as well.

More out of packaging images of this months JP Legends toys, including some comparisons with Gen1 Clones and the TR Shuffler (with the black redeco Bigfight that was released with Legends Blitzwing).

It also includes some photos of a super-sized Overlord figure, made from two Overlord toys, or with a Skyshadow in place of the second Overlord toy.
This combiner feature is probably more of a fan-mode idea, that the fan-artist who does the Legends mini-comics probably added in after playing with a couple of Overlord toys... as it doesn't appear to be an officially documented mode by either Hasbro or TakaraTomy (unless someone posts up scans of the JP Overlord instructions and this combined mode is actually in there).

Scans of the mini-comics for the Clone Bots and Blitzwing have been posted here, but still in Japanese for now.
