I'm not entirely sure if this is supposed to go here or to the "Transformers Sightings" forum so I'll post it here. Anyway, check out the following website on Amazon Japan: Amazon.co.jp: トランスフォーマー 変形! ヘンケイ! トランスフォーマー C-12 ラチェッ& To me, the words "In Stock", "Get this item by Sunday Feb. 22nd" and "Add to Shopping Cart" are suggesting one thing. Therefore, I am going to jump the gun and declare that Henkei Ratchet has been released in Japan. If I'm a little premature in this declaration, sorry about that. It's just what I'm assuming.
