Either when these guys to me are stealing from the factory and someone has to pay for it down the line.
That's exactly what I am saying, I have a hard time thinking Hasbro has this much trouble with security when you start looking around at all the guys who get these ahead of time. Plus I doubt they don't know about it. If anything there is some under the table moves going on. This has been going on since 2002 in GI Joe and Hasbro adimited they knew about it then but refused further acknoledgement.
Also Mattel uses many of the same factories and have never had this problem (Then again as far as I know Hasbro hasn't had any lead paint issues too so there is that).
Of course there are tons of weirdness with the chinise factories (Lost molds that suddenly turn up).
My point is that if they wanted to do something, it would have been done.
