Default JULY 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 JULY 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...
June 2016 list
May 2016 list
April 2016 list
March 2016 list
February 2016 list
January 2016 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)

Another freebie Micron promotion this month in Japan, with two from the Arms Micron series, at selected retailers from July 15th, free with a minimum purchase... which is odd, as these are usually released on the day of a new toy release, which is the 23rd this month.

A translucent black Frenzy/Rumble is called Ink, available at ToysRUs, while a translucent brown Zori is called Sting, available at a number of minor retailers.

The Adventure (RID) Strongarm with Sawtooth is out as well.
