    This is only very tangentially related to Transformers.

    Unless you think this might indireclty cause another increase of toy prices.

    Heh. How automated do you think HasTak's work force is? I personally don't think it is very much, unless we're talking about large manufactured goods like automobiles and big appliances. I don't think this tax would cover Cybertronian figures themselves. :D

    Given their competition, Bandai's level of automation (I figure they'd be a little behind), I'd be very surprised if there weren't already robits making our robits.

    There's no blue text in his post. (also blue text is stupid)

    And if it is a joke, ignoring the fact that jokes are supposed to be funny, why put it in News and Rumours?

    Though TBF, none of the products featured in that video need to be assembled. They're all unpainted, unassembled model kits.

    True, I'm not sure how much assembly relies on human intervention (I figure it's still the most human-focused part of production), but I still think there's opportunities for some automation. Gundams are meant to be buyer-assembled after all.

    Does this mean that now Optimus Prime will be able to make the "I'm spending a year dead for tax purposes" joke?
