Okay, maybe this is something that all longtime TF fans know, but I'm totally in the dark on this one. When I went to buy a DOTM figure for my younger cousin for X-mas (I do my shopping waaaaay early) I noticed on the back of the figure "Manufactured under licsence from Tomy" and I got really, really, curious... Who excatly does own transformers? I know the original diaclone toys came from takara, and the story came from Hasbro (via Marvel and Bob Budiansky) But how is the transformers Brand divided up? Does Hasbro own TF everwhere outside of Japan, and Takara-Tomy within Japan? What happens to Tranformers if Hasbro-Takara corporate relations ever sour? I was just wondering, as I am a robotech fan, and I'm all to farmiliar with the Big west and Tatsunoko/Harmony Gold bad blood over macross. I was wondering about the possible TF senarios in a similar situation..
