"The LEGO Group has announced plans to build and operate its own LEGO factory in China. The factory will supply products for the growing Asian market. Construction is expected to begin in 2014." says the press release in Lego.com.
Will this parts made in China different to those made elsewhere? I afraid this will happen resulting in two different quality of Lego products. Although the press release say that "All products made in the new factory will be sold in Asia" so maybe those of us in Europe, USA and Australasia need not worry unduly when buying new products, but what about buying in the aftermarket such as Bricklink? Will there also be a price different ?
