    I saw this auction on Ebay for a Mexican white G1 Bee, I know it's rare, but it's not what got my attention. The seller stated that only Mexican made (IGA) TF figures were licensed by Hasbro, while those from Argentina and Brazil were not. Is this true?

    Here's the link to the auction.

    Thanks in advance. :)

    Both Antex and Estrela manufacture/distribute legit (licensed) Tansformers products in Argentina and Brazil, respectively.

    As I understand it, Estrela received the license from Hasbro and Antex served as a sort of sub-licensee, as they acquired their license to manufacture/sell through Estrela.
