Default APRIL 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 APRIL in Japan (as well as in Asia as 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...
March 2016 list
February 2016 list
January 2016 list
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.

Another incentive promotion this month in Japan's ToysRUs stores, with a free red Micron from Arms Micron (S2 from Smokescreen), with a 3000yen purchase on April 29th (the date toys get released this month).
6,000 to be given away.

Any idea if the LGEX stuff is going to be an exclusive like previous LGEX toys? I'm conflicted about getting them since I have the TG versions which look rather cartoon accurate because of that strange metallic look to the CGI models but the LGEX versions look more like I remember.

More details of this month's promotion, as they would be out today in Japan.

There are actually two Microns to be given away, the red S2 (above) which is being called Burn (at ToysRUs), and the second one is a blue CJ (from Cliffjumper), called Rain, given free with a 3000yen purchase at the usual following outlets...
