Default MAY 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 MAY 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...
April 2017 listing
March 2017 listing
February 2017 listing
January 2017 listing
December 2016 listing
November 2016 listing
October 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)

Looks like every current unreleased (non-exclusive) item from Japan has been delayed by 8 days, and Artfire by 10 days.
That means the release date of toys in Japan, after Artfire comes out on May 19th, will move to Saturday from Friday... which is an odd day to have as a retail release date (a weekend).

Not odd for Japan. I know from the video game industry they do weekend launches often. Japanese console maker Nintendo actually was launching products on Saturday here for a while also.

I also think several years ago Takara might have had their official street dates for toys as Saturday but the online retailers would send them out on the Friday, I guess so they start arriving on Saturday if they have weekend delivery like America.

Updated the list with the October Legends toys, the two Disney Mickey reissues, the re-release Anniversary toys, and the two versions of the 7-11 exclusive Dark Optimus toy.

I also noticed that the release date for MP Artfire has been pushed back again, to be on the same day as the other regular May items.

Changed the release date for MP Dirge to late June, as that's what the TakaraTomyMall page now says.

(also deleted the May 9th date from Artfire, as it was most likely a typo, meaning to be 19th... before it was delayed to the 26th)

Updated Dirge to note that it's Asia release was still this week, and that only the JP release is delayed until June.

Takara Tomy Mall has just listed MPM03 Bumblebee 10,800yen with July 15th release date

http://takaratomymall.jp/shop/g/g4904810898092/

Edit: I was wondering about the gap from July to October without any MPs to be released and this looks like the answer. Expect Optimus on August release

Thanks. They've also just added in the next 10 TLK toys (10 to 19), and another two Metacolle figures (Dark Optimus and Sqweeks).

And while I was adding them onto the checklist above, the images were added to those pages. (they weren't there when I started, but are there now)
