New toys that are OUT | New September 16: SWTF Belgium

Post by Nevermore » Sat Jan 01, 2005 4:54 pm

From now on, this thread is intended to report all toys that have been officially released. Japanese and US.

For checklists of all lines currently out in stores, see here.
http://tfarchive.com/community/showthre ... adid=28067

Everyone feel free to post any "first sightings" from other websites as well. Note that only the first sighting of a toy in US retail is of relevance. Please remember to include links to the respective sightings unless you're the first one to spot them. In that case, receipt pics would be appreciated.

All further sightings still go into this thread.

I'll keep new toys in for about a month until I kick them out.

Hong Kong tends to get toys up to two months before they show up in the US, although they're the same releases. I'm including them so you know what to expect to show up soon.

Okay, here we go:

Note that while Windcharger is a month late, the E combiner limbs came out right on time according to Hasbro's estimated release date.

Better yet, Barricade was first sighted a few days earlier than expected!

Taken back the sighting for Universe Bonecrusher & Scavenger due to the lack of any evidence, confirmation from other sources and some dubious details in the sighting that didn't make sense.

However, here's another release, this time from Japan:

Takara Collection #17: Blitzwing
Officially released: January 13/14, 2005

You don't need to list any more links for stuff that has already been confirmed. ;)

Though links for new stuff that just popped up at eBay (official Hong Kong releases) are always welcome. ;)

Looks like the sighting of Energon Six Shot (which was reported by another board's mod!) was bogus. Oh well:
