    Meh... Sorry, but sites like BBTS do that pretty well as I know exactly what I want and with delays, cancellations, and the such I can see this becoming a pain for someone to moderate.

    Something about gathering penises.... I mean pennies .....

    ... but yeah, like hoosierdaddy04 said, it'd be a pain to constantly moderate and sites usually have the ETA of figures anyways. It'd just be a waste of time and effort into copying every single item.

    Instead, just start saving anyway! You don't need a release date to tell you when to save up money.

    Hasbro only throw out a month, and that's often aspirational rather than concrete.

    Takara release dates are usually the last weekend of the month, with availability from US dealers a week, maybe 10 days, after that.

    Yeah, sites like BBTS have a rough release date (month or so) that's fairly accurate.

    You can expect it to hit retail a month or two after, depending on the area. There's no real hard release dates, except for the rare times new lines have set street dates (which are usually just the first wave of the movie lines, in my experience).

    I wish there was a way to know better when things are hitting shelves, but ah well.

    Keeping such a list updated would be an exercise in futility, not to mention that even when we are told a release date the item can be delayed without any official notice (e.g. Prime Voyager Dreadwing and Masterpiece Optimus Prime were supposed to come out in July, if the convention tags are to be believed, yet we've heard no official word on a revised release estimate).

    I plan on keeping a updated thread. See above.

    Will keep updated with which waves are shipping to stores currently.

    You can figure out what is out there for sale and budget accordingly.
