The extended line (keychains, magnets, games (but not LGS), etc.) is in a different supply chain and therefore not our regular production facilities. the people in this group and now being watched like hawks to get the issue fixed. The current state of these products are hopefully just an abberation that will be fixed soon.

I won't be this categoric, some parts have been known as weak historically, and in the 80's too, but they saw their mold redesigned (classic helmet, 1x1 plate with grip, classic door, hinged plates/accessories, many Technic parts... ) or material change (soft weapons). I remember my crusader's oarsmen, with flag-based sail, I didn't have to manipulate them much to break their clips.

Already being done, AND, is known to be the cause of the above problems.
