    Not in Transformers (because Transformers series have usually aired first in the US) but it has happened in other films/shows.

    Choice example, Bryan Singers X2 came out on DVD a couple of weeks in the UK than in America, cue a small but vocal bunch of people that pretty much said it's an American film, therefore it must be released there first.

    Edit
    Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier came out on DVD/BD a few weeks earlier than America.

    Didn't Hasbro say they were trying to get a bigger Asian market?

    They've been saying that for a while now, yes-- you can definitely see it now, if this is true.

    I won't judge, I'm just jealous in this case because I'm excited for the show. I wish I could speak Chinese, I'd totally try and see this first broadcast otherwise. XD

    EDIT: Actually, do we know if it's already been dubbed in Chinese? Or are they airing it in English with Chinese subtitles or something?

    So...maybe it was Hasbro wanting to pander to the Chinese market in TF4 rather than Paramount...

    (Gets out umbrella for shitstorm) I personally don't really care. I'd like to see it sooner rather than later, but eh. I'm fairly patient.

    Oh, no question, I figured that was the case from the start. Paramount was probably eager to get a piece of the pie, though, so they happily complied. Setting much of the movie in China, Chinese actors, that talent show to pick MORE Chinese actors...I tell you, everyone's scrambling for the Chinese market nowadays. You can see it in the video game and mobile device industries too, with stuff like China-exclusive MMOs and affordable phones that are only meant for the Asian market.

    I wouldn't worry about it-- there haven't been any America-supremacist posts yet, and if it hasn't happened on a board like TFW, we should be fine. I know I'm not bothered by it.

    I remember there was Anti-China stuff on the News Forum for Age of Extinction being the highest grossing movie in 2014. We'll see if it flows into here.

    If it's on Chinese TV it'll be dubbed in Chinese. No way they'll expect Chinese kids to read subtitles on a kids show.

    (Pats Autovolt's back) You see, Autovolt, we Americans are willing to share our great shows and movies with other nations. We were even nice enough to give other nations Winter Soldier before we got it. That's just what it means to be part of the greatest nation ever.

    Actually, the fist 14 episodes of the Chinese dubbed version is already avalible for watch online.

    We could only watch the first couple of minutes, unless you pay 5 RMBs for a two-day-license each full episode.

    How long before someone finds a way around the pay wall?

    Doesn't help most of us without English subs but... this is a weird way to handle the series.
