Months ago we reported that TakaraTomy were shifting their toy production factories away from China to Vietnam in order ot save money. Well it looks like they already have shifted some Transformers production as Actoys.net member feng423999 has a video (See below) along with some images of the upcoming Transformers Revenge of the Fallen Leader Class Starscream figure, complete with "made in Vietnam stamp. As we previously commentated, its possible that when production fully shifts away form China, that this will result it less toys being leaked from the factories and appearing for sale, at least for a while.

Big Bad Toy Store have updated their website with some new Takara Tomy pre-orders. The Device Label Broadcast is re-listed. Now it appears that for some reason the US sites still think this figure was cancelled. As we correctly have reported all along the toy was never cancelled.
