Kaiyodo Makes North American Debut At Comic Con
Over the past decade, Comic Con International: San Diego has taken on a more
international flavor with the amazing works of Japan's anime and manga masters.
And along with the comics and videos, various products based on their creations
have become a staple at the show.
This year, Japanese toy manufacturing giant, Kaiyodo - known worldwide for
their amazing toys and statues based on some of anime and manga's most popular
licenses - will have a full display booth attached to that of Diamond Comic
Distributors, Inc. (booth #2401), their official North American distributor.
Diamond has prominently featured Kaiyodo products at their heavily-trafficked
display at San Diego for several years. "San Diego has become our showcase
event to preview and display the latest and greatest toys from around the world," stated
DCD Import Toys Brand Manager, Frank Supiot, "and the addition of a free-standing
Kaiyodo display at this year's show will introduce convention-goers to all
of the great products Kaiyodo has to offer."
Since this is Kaiyodo's first official full exhibit at an American trade
show, the company plans to pull out all of the stops to make this one of the "must-see" displays
for manga and anime toy enthusiasts in attendance.
In addition to a display filled with a selection of their previously-released
toys and statues (which includes items based on Fist of the North Star, Neon
Genesis Evangelion, Front Mission, Votoms, Trigun, Devil
May Cry, and more), Kaiyodo will also be previewing a selection of new
statues and toys and exclusive North American premieres of:
- New BomÃƒÂ© designer figure - Kirasaki Mai!
- Fist Of The North Star Jumbo Vinyl Figures!
- Fist Of The North Star Resin Busts!
- Devil May Cry Trading Figs Series Two!
- And Plenty of Surprises!
While at Comic Con International: San Diego 2004, be sure to stop by the Diamond
Comic Distributors, Inc. area to visit Kaiyodo.
