    It could just be a bad translation.

    Could be they've lost their job (been caught stealing items) and that's the best way they could translate it.

    Hasbro has production contracts with shitloads of Chinese factories. One going under isn't the end of the world.

    even if this is true I am sure hasbro would quickly replace the company and as other have said multiple companies produce the toys for hasbro so one going done ( assuming this is true) is not gonna effect things much the other will just ramp up production a bit , its my opinion its a marketing ploy and not a good one

    I love how in the delivery times part is says 'even lost' as the amount of time your item might take to get there.

    Hahaha! That's up there with "item is MISB/MOSC". Which apparently means "I have opened it and played with it but I have put it back in the box and stuck the flaps back down". Only thing is you can clearly see where the box has been ripped on opening! Fools.
