Same thing for the united line...
That would be due to the fact that both Hasbro and Takara Tomy share factories in parts of China. And because of that, the two companies have a deal that would make production and shipping be cheaper when... Or if... It is needed. Which itself dates back to the Diaclone days.
And with the boxes you mentioned... It is due to the fact that the UNITED line, much like the Henkei! line before it, are made from the same molds that were used to make the Classic and Generation lines. Same with the movie lines, Animated lines, and Prime. Even though the Prime lines have "Arms Micron" being the different of the batch.
But yeah... Most (if not all) of the more recent Takara Tomy stuff will be shipped out by Hasbro. And my only curious thought on this Sixshot is if the box solely says "Takara Tomy" or if it has "Hasbro" mentioned somewhere on it.
