Takara Studio Series Listings for January to April 2019
Via the Facebook page of the Hong Kong-based Loopaza Mega Store, we now have a massive list of Studio Series figures scheduled for release by TakaraTomy from January to April 2019.
Some of these figures are not surprises. SS-19 to SS-23 were revealed over a month ago at Fan Expo Canada 2018 under the Hasbro ID numbers 26 to 30 while some others were revealed by Hasbro-based listings on Amazon Australia. Meanwhile, Masterpiece Movie Series MPM-8, whose character has yet to be identified, was listed on BBTS earlier this week. Interestingly, MPM-8 is listed for the price of 8500 JPY (~75 USD), in contrast to BBTS’s listed price of 190 USD.
Most curious is the placeholder listing of SS-29 “Character B”, which may be a figure tying into the upcoming Bumblebee movie, kept secret for the time being. The price of 2800 JPY (~25 USD) matches that of other Deluxe Class figures.
TakaraTomy listings via Loopaza previously utilized “Character A” and “Character B” as placeholders for Shadow Raider and KSI Sentry earlier this year.
