Lately for the last 6 months,since june/july 2010. The newer TF toy boxes/blister cards are more damaged than previous years. in the past,the 2009 & 2008 TF toy years saw a improvement in TF toy boxes & blister cards. thanks to the improved case assortments lay outs. A fellow ATTer says he works for wal-mart & blames the newer outer brown shipping asortment boxes using thinner/cheaper cardboard. The running rumor is Both Takara & Hasbro have moved out of their overseas manufactoring factories. and moved else where overseas. Also both hasbro & takara have appartly gone more green. using bio-degradable twist ties. perhaps both companies are using cheaper/tninner cardboard for the case assortment to save the envionment & go more green. At any rate I'm having a hard time finding a perfect condition HA Jazz box. I've nearly seen 50 HA Jazz's with dented up box corners & dented creases. Thus far I have yet to find a un-damaged,perfect box for HA Jazz. Whenever I buy a new mold TF toy in stores I sometimes buy 2. one to open up & put on display,I don't care how the box looks as it gets opened up & the box gets thrown out.. the second has got to be a perfect box as it never gets opened & gets stored. Trying to find a un-damaged,perfect boxed HFTD Leader sized starscream is also near impossible. I've literally seen 45 of them & there all heaviliy damaged. with major banged up/dented corners. huge creases all over the box. the top of the box pushed in,etc................ I saw all the newer generations toys at walmart. every single deluxe was damaged extensively. I bought a damaged straxus to keep it misb. I will buy another in better condition,then return the other damaged one.
