    If Takara themselves lists a figure for x date of release, would that only apply to their domestic retailers in Japan?

    Yeah, and it's usually like a month later than US.

    So then a reseller like BBTS or whoever, would they themselves have it on that date or how does that work out?

    Though I don't know if this has always happened, typically BBTS gets their shipment of a new Takara release about a week or so after it's released in Japan.

    I have been surprised at times and some stuff has dropped into my PoL about the same time it's released in Asia, but I can't remember if that's been third party/unlicensed stuff or if it's been some Takara releases sprinkled in too that came "early."
