Upcoming Toy Release Schedule

Posted in Site News at 3:25 am by micronian

Find out what’s coming out, when, and for how much

It seems it would be helpful for everyone to have a schedule of upcoming releases so I’m going to try to compile one here. I’ll bump the thread to the top every time it’s updated. I’m not sponsored by anyone so I’m not going to tell you where to buy these toys but hopefully I’ll give you enough information so you can throw the description into Google and pick the store you like the most:

I know I have a few Transformers articles, and I do love me some Transformers, but there are way too many releases for me to keep up with so hopefully you know another location you can hit up for that release schedule. If you spot any issues with the release schedule, please leave me a comment. Prices are generally in Yen, the symbol next to the exclusives is the “after tax price” in Yen since those items have to be sold to a domestic address. I can’t update this post every day some new information is available but I’ll try to update it weekly or bi-weekly.

I’ve added color coding. Red text indicates an item that has missed its initial release date. If an item becomes vaporware it will be removed from the list. Green text means the item has been released. I figure I’ll leave the green items on there until I get my review up. After I’ve reviewed an item it will be removed from the list. Blue items have reached at least color prototype stage but do not have firm details about release and pricing. All items listed here as a Macross, Robotech, or Mospeada product will eventually be removed. If I ever have more free time, the Patlabor and Votoms items will make it up on this site one day also.

    Thank you so much for the heads up, the search is ON.

    Have you experience with older releases of Arcadia’s VF1S releases? I haven’t had any arcadias due to what I read about their lack of playability/reliability.

    Yes, go here: http://anymoon.com/blog/?p=4599
    You can scroll to the videos and watch the individual Arcadia reviews to get Arcadia specific information. I don’t know of any consistent durability issues with Arcadia releases. Some of the early releases under Yamato had shoulder issues but those were resolved before Arcadia bought the mold.

    I fully paid my figure today(DX Chogokin Siegfried Messer), the waiting for arrival begins. I hope soon we see a review from you, your videos are great.

    Any plans on reviewing VF-31J/F or SV-262Hs super parts?

    Thanks JP, I was lagging a bit already.
    Hikaru, I just got my Messer in hand and will be doing a thorough review but it may take a while to get it up. I was already in the middle of a couple other reviews when it showed up.
    Tito, all things on the list will be reviewed… some much quicker than others. I imagine those particular items will make it up pretty quickly after release.

    Another fantastically useful post. You can pretty much be single-handedly blamed for my macross collection and this will only help feed my addiction, muahahah (maniacal laugh). I have so far managed to resist the macross delta but only because of my MP transformers but thanks to the info in this post I have already pre-ordered Miria’s vf-1. Keep up the great work and thanks for the input on the photos I sent you sometime ago.

    Where did you get a November date for the Threezero Scopedog? Their site states an updated shipping date of July.

    Unfortunately, I didn’t leave myself a note where that shipping date was from. If it ships earlier I will certainly update it… I do have the web exclusive version so its arrival will be a pretty good reminder.

    Any updates on the pre-sale date for the SDF-1?

    HLJ is listing it as a November release currently, and has it up for pre-order.

    Any idea if arcadia plans to re-release a complete line of 1/60 super dimensional fortress figures? I would love to get a super ostrich. Also, what do you think is the market price for a Bandai vf-19 advance these days? Thanks!!

    I don’t think we’ll hear any more from Arcadia until Winter Wonderfest (Feb 2018). They’ve just announced a lot stuff between the Max, Miria, SDF-1, and Garland. I would love to see a Super Ostrich reissue also… maybe later next year. Unfortunately, I haven’t been shopping for the DX VF-19Adv so I don’t know the going rate.

    Gosh sarn it all. Was going to avoid the sentinal ride armor as i have the beagle ride armor that i was sure would be the best looking example wec likely ever get. Then you posted that pic om this page and I ended up going to hlj seeing how purdy it would be and mow have it preordered. Your site is a blessing and a curse…. on my wallet. Keep up the good work.

    What are your thoughts on new garlands being released. Is arcadias just the yamato mold reused?

  20. micronian said,

    I have all Garland toys preordered and hope to be able to do my usual full-depth dive when they come out. All are brand new molds. If all goes as planned, I’ll also do a full rehash of the Yamato Garland review with lots of new pictures, HD video, and transformation guide(s) before the new Arcadia comes out.

    Super useful list. That Kairos is so tempting… and I’m not a delta fan.

    FYI there is a typo for the Kairos release date. It says march 2017 (instead of 2018).

    Thanks! I’ll clean it up on the next update.
