1/12 Scale ATM-09-ST Scopedog Action Figure Set to Invade Spring '05
Torrance , CA, October 25th, 2004 - Yamato USA, the
North American subsidiary of Yamato Co. Ltd., is exceptionally pleased to announce
the opening of pre-orders for Yamato's very own 1/12 scale ATM-09-ST Scopedog from
the classic anime, Armored Troopers Votoms.
Measuring over 12.5" and constructed of over 300 individual parts, the
Scopedog is one of a kind, fully articulated and loaded with features -- removable
armor plating, rotating lens turret, special internal spring mechanisms for
simulation of arm punch and stand-by modes, as well as wheels in the base of
the feet for simulation of the Scopedog's "roller dash" gliding
action. The cockpit even opens with accommodating seating for the Chirico Cuvie
action figure, sold separately.
Window boxed, the Scopedog comes with its GAT-22 heavy machine gun with removable
magazine, decals, and an extra set of hands.
"We believe Scopedog is going to be the collectible for 2005," said
Adam Guenther, Yamato USA Sales Manager. "Yamato's renowned toy
engineering really comes to bear here to create a truly exceptional piece.
Even collectors unfamiliar with the property will be amazed."
The ATM-09-ST Scopedog is scheduled to ship early Spring 2005. Yamato USA
is now accepting retailer pre-orders which will close the end of November.
