Someone please bring me back down to Earth if I am flying wildly offcourse here

I thought Hasbro's factories were relocated to Vietnam?

Or was only TFs/action figures relocated (and their "good" stuff can still be manufactured in China)?

TF's are in Vietnam, but majority of stuff like Marvel Legends, Power Rangers and Star Wars are in China.

I can't recall, wasn't there a perception of declined plastic quality at the initial (stuff coming from Vietnam)?

The swirly plastic in the early TitansReturn leaders was part of it if I remember correctly

What I know is, yes toys are moving. Slowly but moving. Iíve had a challenge finding a decent Grapple I can live with.

Fig looks nice, and I'm not even a Grapple guy

But dat face; it's like he's supposed to have an LED in his brain, and the paint & plastic were intentionally thinned to allow light to pass through better

To say nothing of the snapping peg thing

Re: CNBC: Hasbro CEO Says China Factories Almost Back Up

God, I detest Goldner, I really, really do, what a dirty liar. As was said above, I thought he said most their crap was being moved to Vietnam? I call bullshit,lol. And factories almost up? Nothing Hasbro makes is remotely essential. The LAST thing they should be doing now is pumping more product out into the market and encouraging people to go on a toy hunt (because we all know there are people who will make the dangerous move to go out looking for new plastic right now) or order their crap until this health issue is done. Mail is already stopped here as 3 carriers have tested positive. He is a gross human being and no, I don't even feel remotely bad about saying it. Shame on him and his corporate greed right now. The world does not need people like Goldner right now.

Yep, first Grapple I bought, figure looked great in package until I opened the package. Bam! Peg was broken in the foot before I even transformed it. Thereís either dents or scratches on his bumper or the halves above his windshield donít meet up. Iím not sure of any other issues other than his size and weight compared to Solar Storm Grapple. Itís gotta be tough for the new workers in Vietnam to learn and get use to what is a new line to them.
