Default DECEMBER 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 DECEMBER 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...
November 2017 listing
October 2017 listing
September 2017 listing
August 2017 listing
July 2017 listing
June 2017 listing
May 2017 listing
April 2017 listing
March 2017 listing
February 2017 listing
January 2017 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.

A non-toy item that was released this month in Japan - the bluray edition Gen1 cartoon (including Rebirth, which was not released in Japan), plus Scramble City.
It doesn't include the movie, and a review of this set says that the visual quality is the same as the DVD edition that has been out for a few years now.
The only things noted are some extra features, and a lot less discs needed to contain all 98 episodes.
More details of the contents and heaps of photos of the set can be seen at that link above.

Looks like the three reissue Legends (Scourge, Blurr, Wheelie) did get produced after all, as they were making their way to stores this week in Japan (and maybe Asia as well).

Good news for those still wanting Blurr, who sold out really fast first time around, or now wanted one to go with his Targetmaster gun that was also recently released (with Doublecross).

The December Legends toys are out now in Japan, and some early photos have been posted... showing the few minor differences.

It looks like Japanese fans will finally be getting the original 1980s comic released in their country, which is likely to be translated into Japanese. Starting in February from Hero-X (the publisher of the Generations books), the first for issues will be released for 2560yen, with original Japanese art and commentaries.

A little late, but apparently this extra mini-comic on the TakaraTomy website is "christmas" themed (barely), and features a lot of Sweeps heads hunting down White Lune (sister to White Leo - the head to Doublecross), who like most females in Japanese Transformers, seems to be drawn very curved, with very little clothing (plus some strategically placed cleavage shots, and Ai getting her underwear pulled off by a Sweeps head - which isn't the worst we've seen of her in Transformers, with that KT Figure Collection figurine of her bathing naked and Fire Convoy and Gelshark are both looking on... designed by the person who gave us Kiss Play).
