Ironhide, Gears and and Ramjet were never released in Japan as Transformers until many years later.

    Takara revived the non-factionalized numbering with their reissues beginning in 2001. They started with 99 and went backwards. They're currently at 65.

    well the good news is that i was only missing numbers 48 and 49, lol. I thought my whole list was off by a number or something....that's happened before and drove me nuts fixing it. I was unaware of the reverse number system for the re-issues though.

    do you plan on doing the rest of the G1 japan series? It'll be nice to have another list to check mine against.

    Wouldn't Dion be 66? Or did they really just lump the two together even though as far as I know they've never done that... And if Dion wasn't 66, the only other character I could think of that would fit that bill would either be Galvatron 2 the E-Hobby Exclusive based on G1 US Comic Galvatron or the Pepsi Convoy Exclusive.

    I think my list is fairly accurate @ my website. www.transformervault.com

    Click on the G1/G2 Japanese link in the middle, then on the toy checklist link.

    Hmm... I always thought the Cybertrons started at 1, 2, 3... and the Destrons started at 1, 2, 3... for them. Didn't know both sides were mixed in the same number order.

    Megatron would have certainly been D-01 if that were true. I thought that as well, before I got the 16-S reissue in 2001.
