Our first stop of Toy Fair was the Organic Hobby Booth. Organic Hobby is the company that distributes Revoltech and CM Corps product in the states. Their booth was large and spacious. When other companies seem to be scaling back, organic was moving forward.
Revoltech was out in full force - Organic had a whole wall of Revoltech to show off, including in-package shots of the new Rodimus and Starscream:
Also on display was FRAULEIN REVOLTECH, featuring the new Pocco figure by Shunya Yamashita:
Other new Revoltech on display were BLACK OX
Griffon Aqua Type from Patlabor:
And again, Rodimus and Starscream:
Another Revoltech from Doko Demo Issyo called Suzuki. :
And Fan-favorite Gurren Lagann. This one is the Wonderfest Limited edition, the regular edition will be the one in the states.
We managed to pry a few secrets out of the Revoltech brand manager from Kaiyodo:
- There will be a Macross REGULT battle pod Revoltech!
- There will be both MAX and MIRIYA VF-IJ Revoltech
- There will be a new "name" sculptor coming on board to the Revoltech line in addition to Yamaguchi and Eyewater. He could not say who though
- Revoltech Mini was an experiment to get the line out to other places like convienence stores. If there are any more released, it would have to be of characters with a mass market appeal
- Apparently Hasbro did NOT license the Revoltech Joint from Kaiyodo - they basically just copied it.
In addition to their Kaiyodo goods, Organic had some new items from CM's Corp
Patlabor Brave Gokin Ingram with Reactive Armor
Ingram 1 + 2 OVA Version
Patlabor Hercules Vinyl
CM's Votoms - looks very detailed but kind of small...
Other lines being shown at the Organic Booth
TOP Collection - fixed pose statues
