    The first wave of Arms Microns will be released on 8/20, a case of 20 retails for 2,940 yen, though it is on sale for 2,779 at the moment.

    AM-07 Starscream, AM-12 Breakdown, AM-13 Knock Out and AM-14 Vehicon will be released on 6/30 (on a Saturday, I suspected earlier:p )

    NOTE: Amazon.co.jp only shows the release date on Knock Out and the Vehicon, but as these guys are from the same set of yet to be released figures, I'm pretty sure it's safe to assume this date is true for the other two as well.

    PS: Love the Vehicon's AM!

    What?

    There's the 4 that were supposed to be released yesterday (Prime, BB, Gecko, Snake). Then another 4 that were supposed to hit in August (Arcee, Bulkhead, Megatron, Gator). Those are the capsule ones.

    Then there's the individual releases that seem to be coming out in waves of three and are a mix of new colors of existing Microns, and new molds. They're supposed to hit in July (the first 6).

    So pretty much all of the online Preorders for AM Breakdown are saying "June 2012" but, based on the release date it'll be closer to July?

    This is pretty much the case for a lot of Japanese figures, I've noticed. When they say "June" they mean "last weekend of".

    Pretty much what he ^ said, but it isn't always the last week, though it usually is--some times it's the second to last week of a month. They are almost always, however, released on Saturdays here.

    Stores in my area always get toys on their announced street dates, and I find that pretty cool. I remember being met with lots of disappoints back home in the States while looking for this or that around the time a particular toy was said to be shipping. Street dates for all toys, is a beautiful thing. I wonder why we only do for big toys like Star Wars and the like.
