I was wondering if any of you guys knew when/why/how they started doing this. I've seen figures (albeit from Europe) from '88 with "Made in China" and the same ones (presumably North American) from that year with "Made in Hong Kong", and there is NO difference whatsoever in terms of plastic (from what I can tell), paint, etc. So what gives? Was it a running change in the same factory? Was it a new factory? Anyone?
