Agesthreeandup has posted on the tfw2005 boards that Toy Company TakaraTomy will be shifting many of their factories from China to other Asian countries such as Vietnam and Thailand.

A main reason behind the move is because of the mistrust in Chinese made products due in part to the excess amount of lead and other harmful substances found in other Chinese made products over the last few months.
Another reason is to save production costs, as labour costs in Guangdong, China have risen due to labour shortages.

Transformers Animated debut at NTFA cut short. Updated!

Groundsplitter from ntfa.net has posted some bad news from the NTFA Minicon held on the 3rd and 4th of November:

We regret that we will have to back out on the exclusive showing of the first episode of Transformers: Animated at the Arlöv Mini-Con this weekend. Both we and Hasbro Nordic thought we had permission to show the full episode, but it seems there was either some miscommunication or just a case of conflicting opinions at Hasbro USA. First one party told us yes, but later another party said no.

We want to emphasize that Hasbro Nordic's manager wanted to make the exclusive showing possible, and thanks to his efforts we can still show a partial preview of the episode, just not the full episode. So you will still get a taste of Transformers: Animated at Mini-Con!


Following this bad news, Groundsplitter posted a short review of what was shown at the NFTA Minicon:

It was a very interesting preview though, and I can tell you that even though I were very sceptical when I saw the first posters for the series a while ago, I think the cartoon may turn out to be quite entertaining. What struck me the most is that it seems all the characters will be portrayed with distinct personalities - a very welcome change compared to the three latest series, were most of the characters were blank slates.
There were also quite a few nods to the old fans - I haven't seen the clips on YouTube so I don't know what has been shown before, but the show actually starts with Optimus Prime looking at some archive clips from the war that ended a few hundred years ago - clips that are taken straight from the original G1 cartoon! And Ratchet is said to have taken part of that war, which poses the question if this is the original Ratchet, or just someone who shares the name.

-UPDATE-
More People who attended the NTFA Minicon have also posted in this thread, with more details about the preview Emerging:
Animated takes place in the 22nd century (or was it 23rd?). Some notes (I don't know what is already known so bear with me):

Blitzwing has three faces, although the third wasn't very clear (the entire Decepticon scene is in the dark). First is the strict monocled guy, the second is a very clichéd Arnie "stupid" German accent and the third was just crazy and singing. Not too sure about this guy, but he might make a cool toy.

Allspark looks vaguely Matrix-shaped with handles, but it's much bigger. So far the only Allspark-carrier has been... Ratchet

Blackarachnia is exactly her BW self (her alt mode is considered organic, btw) and Starscream is exactly his G1 self, personality-wise.

Ratchet has a mix of Ironhide/Kup with the "old-timer" personality thing going on. As mentioned, not clear whether he is actually THE Ratchet.

Sentinel (Prime) is an officer in the Autobot army and Ultra Magnus is the Supreme Commander who bosses Optimus around.

Optimus trained at the Autobot academy and is going about doing heroic stuff from the very beginning, but there must be a reason why he's stuck on a crappy repair mission...

Optimus' axe has quite a few features except the energon blade. It has a rocket thruster on it, and the handle can extend Dragonball style for him to do polevaults. Somehow Optimus can also fire nets.
