I'm kind of confused? Didn't the IP rights to these characters end up in BanDai and Hasbro's hands as outright owners? Not simply licensee's? BanDai absorbed Popy which created and held Machine Robo, and Hasbro acquired the GoBots side of it when the bought out Tonka. Why would Hasbro be nervous about some third party coming in and attempting to top them by making toys of their own characters and IP? Granted Hasbro has not been that overly agressive in going after small merchant 3rd party Transformers. But this seems like something that might sit badly with them is it ever attempts to hit North America or Europe.
These new machine robo toys are not made by a third party group. Action Toys, is a well known toy company based in Hong Kong, and it is that region's distributor of Fewture toys.
Therefore, these are fully licensed products from Bandai. Hasbro does not own Machine Robo. Instead, it only owns the Gobots brand and characters names, not the toy designs.
They are official products but if you don't feel comfortable don't buy them. LOL
I like it but its a hard sell for $120 here in the US. Also, I am not digging the kibble on the back of the lower legs with the mufflers and the bars on the back of the thighs. It should be better engineer for the price.
mojacko: mighty quie over here...not much discussions going on.

S_Gokin: i really dont recommend it (unless you found it dirt cheap) both Arkham asylum and Arkham city are bad, story wise and gameplay, didnt try Arkham knight yet, but im not sure i will, if they kept all of those annoying things from the early games
