Fans, rejoice! The Transformers The Japanese Collection has been (re)set for a release date of January 10, 2012!
The online store for Shout! Factory has re-listed the gargantual 13-DVD set with the Headmasters, Super-God Masterforce, and Victory series for $89.99 plus shipping and handling that includes a bonus lithograph of Headmaster leader Fortress Maximus.
The set was originally scheduled for a July release, back the set was delayed by production issues for "8-10 weeks" with pre-orders cancelled back in June.
We have reached out to Shout! Producer Brian Ward for further comment on the new release date and we will let you know if and when we hear anything back.
Until then, finger-crossing is always recommended.

TRANSFORMERS: THE JAPANESE COLLECTION – Headmasters

TRANSFORMERS: THE JAPANESE COLLECTION – Super-God Masterforce
Following their victory over the DESTRONS (a/k/a DECEPTICONS) at the end of Headmasters, the CYBERTRONS (AUTOBOTS) depart Earth, leaving behind only a small group to protect the planet from any future menace. But when the powerful DESTRONS return to an unsuspecting planet, the CYBERTRONS must come out of hiding to defend their human friends once again — only this time they’ll be unable to do it on their own!
TRANSFORMERS: THE JAPANESE COLLECTION – Victory
Victory is the third and final installment of this Japanese trilogy— introduces four new factions to the TRANSFORMERS universe. Each group comes equipped with its own unique power and the ability to combine to form much larger, more powerful TRANSFORMERS, making each and every battle even more epic!
