If anybody who has picked up 9466 Crazy Scientist and Monster feels inclined to take a look and report back, the more nervous over-reactors in our group would appreciate it.
And just for fun, here's an unrelated response to the question "which LEGO parts are made in China?" by a LEGO message board moderator. Granted, it's from 4 years ago, so not sure what, if anything, has changed since then.
LEGO's own Mark Stafford had this to say:

I'd like to know if the 1x2 or 2x2 had similar issues. Either way if you are not happy, call consumer services.
One thing though - not one of these is made in China.
