    This thread is intended as a companion to "Newly released and upcoming toys: Hasbro edition", as suggested by some of the folks over there.

    All Platinum Edition toys that have been out at US retail for over two months will be removed from the ongoing thread and end up here instead.

    This archive may additionally also serve in case a toy that has already disappeared from retail in one market suddenly shows up elsewhere long after the fact.

    Okay, I've trimmed down the availability lists a little bit by concentrating on "official" venues recognized by Hasbro, while information regarding other online retailers that obtained the Platinum sets through other channels have been relegated to the "notes" sections. Thoughts?
