I'm sure it's just on a delay compared to the US release just as Blaster and Grimlock were.
Same here. The "Classics" Grimlock, "Generations" Thundercracker, and "Bot Shot" Optimus were the only three I had purchased. And the first two had botched paint jobs, with all three having some kind of loose articulation. Thundercracker was the worse. So I ended up strictly sticking with TOMY regardless if I am buying for my permanent collection or temporary/loose collection.
But also, I agree with you that they will release it. However, my gut is telling me that when they do... They might pull a "UNITED" and place these into a completely new (anniversary-based?) line. And if they do, I am hoping it is so they can cap off their Generations line with what is shown in ALL SPARK. .....
