Back in late 2015, we broke the news of Hasbro expanding their business in India and establishing a toy manufacturing plant in the aforementioned country as a subsequent outcome from new the business venture.
It so happens that Transformers toys marked as Hasbro India LLP have started to pop up in countries such as Sri Lanka (South Asian Region).
The first batch of items, which arrived yesterday, contains Transformers Evergreen Bravo Assortment (each approximately US$ 17) and the tail-end line of figures from Transformers: Robots In Disguise (each Warrior Class figure approximately US$ 45).
The distribution of the toys were formerly under Funskool India, a company which distributed Hasbro items since 1982 and even had their own exclusive variants. The new batch of toys no longer carries the familiar Funskool Sticker, which you can see from our comparison images.
When we inquired several retailers regarding the upcoming products, they stated that Transformers: Bumblebee movie line toys were mentioned to be arriving next (it is possible that this will take place towards the end of the year).
