Default MARCH 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 MARCH 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...
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)

I think the Adventure line (Robots In Disguise) is over in Japan... as the last release was in November, and we have nothing known for the next few months, which would be a six month break if there are more.

This shouldn't be due to the Movie line this year, as this six months is before the Movie toys come out, and the Adventure toys are just redecos of Hasbro toys, so there would be very little resources needed for this line.

And the Legends (Generations) line is slowing right down too, with only four general release items for the first eight months of the year... and unless there are movie toys that are exclusive to Japan (in design, not just redecos), the Legends line shouldn't be suffering either from the Movie year.

There just isn't a lot of "new" product this year from TakaraTomy so far this year, when you compare the first 4-5 months of this year to last year.
I think it just means it is another "down year" for Transformers by TakaraTomy, like how they scale right back every few years, then the Brand grows for a few years.

Also... I've just updated the release dates of the four items for March. The three Movie anniversary items have been pushed back 8 days (now the 25th), and Baldigus has a release date of the 31st.

The reissue Masterpeice toys for April have all moved as well, with Optimus being brought forward to the 1st to be released with the New Megatron, and the others being pushed back 6 days to the 30th.
