Shout Factory Postpones Japanese Collection Box Set, Cancels Pre-Orders
Yotsuyasan - Thursday, June 30, 2011

Shout! Factory sent out an email today to customers that pre-ordered their Transformers: The Japanese Collection box set that it has been delayed and pre-orders will be canceled as a result.

The Japanese Collection includes Transformers Headmasters, Super-God Masterforce, and Victory all in one box set.

"We are sorry to report that we have had a production delay in bringing you The Transformers Japanese Collection box set," Shout! writes in an email.

"We anticipate an 8-10 week wait as we strive to bring you the best-quality product possible. Because of the delay, we will need to cancel the preorders currently in our system."

The original release date was July 5, 2011.

Hi, Here is a quick update from 1. Starting from 11th September 2017, for all Star Wars orders over USD60 will come with a FREE Star Wars plastic folder as GIFT! For all Star Wars orders over USD120 will come with a FREE Star Wars notebook!
Thanks to primalxconvoy, we've got an in-depth look at some of the Infobar phone Transformers from the au x Transformers project. These were the subject of a crowdfunding campaign in Japan, from which you would get a set of three figures decoed as Optimus Prime, Megatron, and Bumblebee. A movie-inspired Optimus Prime is being released to direct retail. We have photos documenting the unboxing, as well as showing the individual figures, with size comparisons. Plus images of the instructions (in Japanese) and some details about the toys. Keep reading to see the whole works!

Amazon Japan has posted preorder listings for a Blu-Ray collection of Fight! Super Robot Lifeform Transformers and Transformers 2010 - the Japanese versions of G1 Seasons 1-2 and 3, respectively. It's priced at 19,440 Yen (about $175 by the current exchange rate), is due for release on December 6th, and is region-free... but not HD-quality. Keep reading for details.
It's been a while since the first information hit about the collaboration project between mobile phone provider au and TakaraTomy to make transforming toys based on their Infobar handset. The first of these to be generally available is now up for preorder on TakaraTomy Mall. The Optimus Prime "ANNIN Version" is based on the white variation of the Infobar phone, and the robot elements are inspired by the movie series Optimus Prime. This product is expected for release in December, and is priced at 5400 Yen. No word on the availability of the red Optimus or the other characters shown previously. Click through for stock photos and product link!
Following our previous posts. We have a report on the Takara Tomy booth and all the Transformers products that were on display this year, thanks to Autobase Aichi. In addition to many images showing just about every angle of the amazing Transformers display. We have a show report that has been google translated from Japanese to English for those who want to pick up some of the extra details on the show. Read on to see the report and image gallery after the jump.
