Default January 2016 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 (most Japanese Transformers toys are also released through Hasbro Hong Kong).

These monthly lists are archived on the Transformers Checklist here if you need to refer to these listings later (if anything is found out later, these monthly lists won't be updated after their month ends).
Some recent listings for reference...
December 2015 list
November 2015 list
October 2015 list
September 2015 list
August 2015 list
July 2015 list

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)

QTC06 My Melody dropped into my Anime Export PoL overnight. A bit earlier than expected. Oh yeah!

With the Q-Transformers getting a reboot of the product numbers, they are also getting new packaging to match the crossover QTs, which are a full box (not bubble on card) and the toy is packed in robot mode instead of vehicle mode.

Only a few days away from the bulk of the January Japanese items getting released (and hitting our wallets), TakaraTomy have announced yet another freebie incentive item for Japan.
This time it is a clear (ghost) Starscream Q-Transformers toy, given out at ToysRUs stores to the first 3000 people who buy 5 or more Q-Transformers toys on January 30th (from the 9 or 10 QTs being released on that day in the new packaging and numbers).
