Default New Takara release dates, plus next reissue is Blitzwing!

From the Allspark:

Quote:
Galaxy Force:
Released 28 December
GC-01 Galaxy Convoy - 5,460
GC-02 Excelion - 2,100
GC-03 Vector Prime - 3,150
GC-04 Dreadlock - 4,200
GC-05 Jackshot - 987
GC-06 Backpack - 987
GC-07 Street Speed Team Redeco - 987
GC-08 Brit, Hop, and Bumper - 987
GD-01 Master Megatron - 5,460
GD-02 Thundercracker - 2,100
GD-03 Starscream - 3,129

Released January
GC-09 GuardShell - 2,100

Reissues
Released 9 December
Predaking 15,000 Confirmed Die Cast

Released 14 January
#17 - BLITZWING 3,000
#18 - Soundblaster 4,980
Note, this information is different to previous reports that #17 was Soundblaster and due for release on 9 December. My supplier is getting his information from the Takara ordering catelouges and was the first to tell me that Predaking was being reissued.

Binaltech
Released 26 Febuary
BT-11 Ravage (Corvette Redeco) 4,980

Released 3 March
BT-12 Windcharger (Honda S2000) 4,980
That's the confirmation for Ravage and Windcharger we were waiting for. Plus the "Blitzwing = Collection #17" report has been confirmed by SG Collect.

I can't wait for Predaking!

Got mine preordered well I should say my mom preordered it for my X-mas gift and the fact he is Die Cast even better.

Galaxy Force looks great too for the most part.

Shame about Blitzwing given he's been one of the few transformers I never had a problem finding *Or see also I've aquired 3 of them through the years.*

UPDATE!

According to listings at both BBTS and Digital-Toys, the red Honda S2000 announced as "Windcharger" by Hasbro is not going to be named "Charger" in Japan, but... "Overdrive"?!?

Thats fantastic! No wonder BBTS was selling Predaking for $174. Luckily I ordered mine from HLJ.com before the August 31st deadline. So mine only wil cost $120, before shipping.

Is BT-11 really going to be called Ravage? I guess they couldn't call him "Jaguar" because of the car company of the same name...

With any luck, I'll be able to pre-order some Galaxy Force toys and get them before winter vacation ends.

Digital-Toys is listing him as "Jaguar".

Seems like Takara can get away with it (see "Lambor").
However, RM "Rijie" is a different story...

Hooray!!!

Um...crud...I don't really have anything productive to add. I guess, just that it's too bad that the Hasbro version isn't going to be called Overdrive as well.

You know...interestingly enough, this was supposedly why we ended up with "Meister" instead of "Jazz." But there is a vehicle model called "Meister" as well...so that seems to poke holes in that theory.

<pauses>

Okay...I thought I found a car called a Meister the other day...but I can't find one now so...nevermind.

This I didn't know. Is it 100% certain?

Yeah, I preordered mine as well. This'll be the first time I've owned him or any of the Predacon gestalt team members.

It's also a shame, considering there are more impressive tfs that they could have reissued. I was slightly disappointed when I first got him, and I ended up acquiring a knockoff, only to find out that the original was really no better.
