TFs manufacturing origin

Motto: "Power to the strong and the right!"
Weapon: Plasma Cannon
The following I can confirm TF's manufacturing origin in response to a recent sudden unsubstantiated blanket generalization

TF EZ collection (latest) China
TF GO gestalts(Samurai,Shinobi and Vietnam
TG 01, TG 09,TG 18,TG 21, TG22, TG 23, TG 24 China
TF Aces sets (Starscream ,T cracker and Skywarp) China
TF Hasbro Orion Pax China
TF Hasbro FOC T Cracker China
MP-13 Soundwave (1st release)and his cassetrons China
MP-10 Vietnam

So that makes 23 made in China and 12 in Vietnam.

'nuff said.

I was under the impression (from what I had read here) that all TFs were made in Vietnam now. Maybe I spoke incorrectly. I think the TWO responses you posted in the existing thread were enough. Did you have to start an entire NEW thread as well?

Motto: "Power to the strong and the right!"
Weapon: Plasma Cannon
MP-01 Convoy (2004) China
MP-05 Megatron China
MP-08 Grimlock (first releases anyway) China
Powermaster Optimus Prime (1988 Hasbro version) Thailandso much cosmic rust on the screws.

G-26 Optimus ExPrime triple changer (?)

Hopefully, the Vietnam branch can get their act together and avoid the snafu on Jin bo. I like the type of plastics used. reminds me of the glossy toy look of the 1980s tfs.
