Japanese Import Theatre

For all the lines not covered in our themed forums. Think Thundercats, Ghostbusters, Voltron, Wrestling, Doctor Who, Power Rangers, Video Game Licenses, TV & Film Licenses... do I need to go on or did you have it figured out before I even started?

That makes sense. I love Time Cops!

We've looked into it, but the rules pretty different/stringent - Hasbro uses a professional PR company (they're awesome, btw, Mattel could learn a thing or twelve). It kinda depends on how Hasbro ends up handling the return of Marvel Legends and how IAT will adjust to that too. Sometimes it feels like there isn't hours in the day or slots on the main page...

Great pictures as usual Dorkey.

I laughed when I saw that Escaflowne. It's the one toy Manekochan will actually spend lots of money on.

Why were they showing Big O off again though?

That was a display of a cross section of figures with a little bit of a back story to each piece.
As for Big-O, they were explaining that they amnaged to get a sculptor who was a big fan of Big-O.

A new App called Assembleborg was added to the iOS App store today. The app is iPad only and FREE of charge. While the app itself is not much, see below, it does offer two new bits of information, that a new web site is on the way (www.assembleborg.net) and that sales, presumably english language and in North America, will start on December 10. About half the figures have a 'Buy Now' button while the rest have 'Available Soon' buttons. The web site was not active as of an hour or so ago.

The app is a collection of much of the information that is already known about Assembleborg, Revoltech and the Revolver joint. It has a lot of broken english and a poor user interface but offers a great resource for collectors and, as stated above, seams to be a first push into the North American market for this revolutionary line of action figures.

Ah cooool! Thanks for the news Tek. It'll be awesome if they start selling to the US, except for the part where my wallet will be empty...

Thanks for the pics Dorkey, stop tempting me. [sweat]

Noisy and I keep talking about how this is the future of action figures. Totally customizable with swappable body parts. Just imagine if Hasbro or Matty made all their figures in the same scale/style, and then they could switch heads or arms or whatever else. The first US company that really implements this will make a mint.

The Wilderness Crawler (land robot armor) along with the Sea armor bot and Air armor bot are all in the app. Also shown are three weapons sets, the six figures, and three vehicles.

I get a 'cool updated version of Centurions' feel as I look at some of the designs. I still want to buy these by the case.
