Default AUGUST 2016 Japanese & HK excl toy items

(sorry, very late this month... but just before the August items get released)

These are TakaraTomy toys (and maybe some significant licensed items) currently known from official sources, scheduled for release in AUGUST 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...
July 2016 listing
June 2016 listing
May 2016 listing
April 2016 listing
March 2016 listing
February 2016 listing
January 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)

Pre-Orders for MP Dirge should go up in Early December with the figure being released four months later, late in the month... that is if TT maintains their currently planned release schedule.

February

Masterpiece
- MP-35 - Grapple - February "Late" 21st~28th (15,120yen)

As the latest batch of Legends/Titans Return toys are now out, some photos and comparisons can be seen here and here.

Plus the soundclips for the Japanese Fortress Maximus, recorded by the original voice actor.
