    They're obtained illegally from factories most of the time when you see those auctions. But sometimes they do get stuff earlier than North America does in stores.

    For the record there are no Hasbro or TakaraTomy Transformers produced in Japan. They were back in G1, but that was a long time ago.

    Those aren't toys straight out the packages, bought in stores. Those are toys stolen from factories and are thusly not allowed to be posted. If they were in packages, and legitimately bought in stores, Hasbro wouldn't crack down on them like they do.
