Another two items with dates not specified are BB Senshi O Gundam (Type A.C.D.) - 840 Yen (inclusive of tax) and BB Senshi Sangokuden Mokaku Gundam, Shukuyu Gundam and Nanban Elephant Set - 2,100 Yen (inclusive of tax).

All 13 new releases next month (excluding MG Exia Ignition Mode), with 7 of them BB Senshi kits XD.

Also, the dates given are not accurate I believe, as the items are scattered onto too many separate dates to be released. For the benefit of the toy store, Bandai usually groups the different items into weekly cycles within the month, as you have seen in previous months.

The confirmed schedule from Bandai Hobbysite will only be available on August 5th.
