I think Hasbro is smart enough to know, that fans who like having the new toy before its released in stores, are gonna spend insane amounts of money or time trying to get it. So there wouldn't really be a need to trick consumers, test products or hide behind some foreign market in order to capitalize on impatient buyers.
Without e-bay, this wouldn't be an issue. I find e-bay helpful in buying figures of the past rather then those of now. Plus I ain't trying to buy one figure for the price of two. I'll wait till there in the store that way I can get two for the price of two.
Anyway off to e-bay to bid on a maskless SS.

I imagine the cost to BroJob is negligible so they don't care.

Hasbro dose not own the mill's they use. They only own the toy molds. If they have a problem with a mill they take their molds and go to another mill and keep pumping out repaints. It's that simple.

hasbro outsource to some toy manufacturing company, once the contract expires it's either they renew or switch to another toy manufacturer.
hasbro does not want to be liable to any of the overseas company. and they don't want to deal with whatever legalities. and nice for hasbro since they know where cheap labor and tax loop-hole.
if i were hasbro, would i start a manufacturing company outside of the country and start it from the ground up? and if i were hasbro, should i worry about paying a justified salary? i'm an evil corporation who loves to exploit the free-world and pretty much everyone is expendable.
oh the thought of it.

if you've ever emailed one of the china sellers and got a response...
somewhere between their english and said response... i think itz pretty
clear itz not Hasbro on the other end.
could they be providing the items to an extent.. MAYBE.
however, if you've noticed... the 'new' stuff has stopped.
and the buy-it-now on test shots are the prices paid for
by the last buyer... (trust me... i know... cuz the prices on
the james mccullen and destro suit test shots is what i paid for them heheheheheh). this means they're comin out soon. based
on the fact that the SDCC is coming soon. they're milking
based on release. don't be surprised if Resolute Snake Eyes shows
up in the ROC line based on his recent multi-copy appearances.
maybe he's the next mail-away figure.

Whatever they are, they are making bank off the poor souls who have to have stuff before everyone else.

I am a fan of buying items from the China dealers. I have purchased a lot of stuff from them. Why would I do so? Partly because I can and don't care want to wait, but partly because of the fan reaction to the movie. Let me explain. If the movie tanks and Hasbro repeats its past patterns, I.E. Indiana Jones, they will stop shipping and kill the line rather than loose money on products supporting a movie fans hated. China Dealers, may be the only way we will get some of the figures. It is sad but it is true.
