Each makes its own business plan, toy lines, exclusives, sculpts (at times)... It's clear why odd things like this happen, and why it's confusing to collectors. Each is thinking about its own market and what will sell. With the internet, we monitor all four companies and what they are doing overseas, and it looks like a big mess.
Wait, there's a Hasbro Asia? I know there's an asian branch... But I kinda doubt they PRODUCE the toys. This is from Takara, it appears... That's the logo on all their other exclusives.
