I was looking at the package of one of my Transformers and on the bottom it said in small print: "Manufactured under license from TOMY Company ltd." I already knew they were licensed through Takara/Tomy but, something occurred to me. How has Hasbro held the license to Transformers from Takara/Tomy for so long? Do they have some kind of lifetime contract? How does this deal work? I love what Hasbro has done with Transformers over the years and I don't want their contract to end. (Just for the record.) If there's anyone out there who knows please enlighten me. THANKS!!
