We previously knew that these figures were set to come out over the course of 4 months, with Optimus coming in August at Wonderfest for 15,000 yen, Unite Warriors Starscream in October through TakaraTomy Mall for 3,800 yen, and Perceptor, Beachcomber, and Seaspray in November also through TakaraTomy Mall for 8,000 yen. What the recent Takara Tomy tweet points out is that:
The 35th anniversary of the Golden Lagoon Mall Limited Edition 3-body set is available on the 2nd day of the week until 13:00!
The quantity and the reservation period remain low.
Because it is a set of three main characters that appeared in the spring of the Golden Lagoon, you do not miss buying! Booking â†“â†
It is unclear at this point if they're only referring to a set inclusive of all three, and whether this negates the previous staggered release info we covered. If you find out any more details, please let the news staff know!

Starscream pre-orders don’t go up until the end of July, and Prime is a con exclusive.

If there's an Asia release then probably $40, if not then maybe more like $50-$60 since they can't get them wholesale. He's the only one I want as well so I'm hoping for the $40 mark.

The toys feature Optimus Prime, Perceptor, Sea Spray and Beachcomber, which are being released for the 35th Anniversary of the brand. Optimus and Starscream are being released individually while the rest are being released in a three pack. Will you be getting some of these? Will you be getting that Starscream to add to your Starscream combiner?

And here I thought they were ditching the Japanese monikers. I haven't seen "Convoy" in a while, unless it's a reissue.Sabrblade wrote:Yet... "Convoy". In English, even.william-james88 wrote:COMPLETE BRAND UNIFICATION!!!!!!!!Sabrblade wrote:Wait a sec, what's Hasbro's logo doing on those signs?

It's a little complicated. Ever since 2007, some lines have kept the Japanese names, while others used the Hasbro names.shajaki wrote:And here I thought they were ditching the Japanese monikers.

Here's a rundown of which toylines in Japan (and their respective media of fiction) used which names from 2007 to today:
Binaltech (2007 onward) - Takara names
Masterpiece (2007 onward) - Takara names
2007 Movie 1 - Hasbro names
Beast Wars Telemocha Series - Takara names
Encore - Takara names
Music Label - Takara names (save for the fully-colored Music Label Optimus Prime)
Sports Label - Takara names
Henkei! Henkei! - Takara names
Alternity - Takara names
Revenge of the Fallen - Hasbro names
Device Label - Takara names
Autobot Alliance - Hasbro names
Animated - Hasbro names (save for renaming Bulkhead as "Ironhide" and Ironhide as "Armorhide")
United - Hasbro names
Dark of the Moon - Hasbro names
Chronicle - Hasbro names and Takara names for certain figures (the two box sets used Hasbro names, while the EZ Collection figures used Hasbro names for only the Movieverse Legends class molds and Takara names for the G1/G2-based Legends class molds)
Prime - Hasbro names
Generations - Hasbro names
Go! - Hasbro names for the non-new characters, all new names by Takara for the new characters
Cloud - Hasbro names (save for Hot Rodimus and the all new name of Hellwarp)

Legends - BOTH names! Takara names in Katakana, Hasbro names in Latin script (save for the two Black Convoy toys keeping "Black Convoy" in both language scripts)
Q-Transformers - A varying mixture of Hasbro and Takara names
Adventure - Hasbro names for the most part, but Greejeeber, Adams, and Stepper used Takara names in both Katakana and Latin script, while Shrapnel has his Takara name "Sharpnel" in Katakana and his Hasbro name in Latin script

Check out the mirrored images below, also including the shiny black box, with golden letters and logos, and images of both robot and alt-mode on the front; let us know what you think of the shiny new paint job on the Autobot commander in the Energon Pub discussion boards - will you be n-th dipping with the toy, or is this overkill by now?
