TOYNAMI ANNOUNCES TWO NEW LICENSES AT TOY FAIR 2004
February 9, 2004
Toynami is pleased to announce the acquisition of two new action-figure licenses: the smash hit series Inuyasha and the anime and manga sensation Chobits! Toynami will manufacture articulated action figures based on characters from both extremely popular series.
“Both Inuyasha and Chobits are among the hottest animated properties in today’s media, and they’re a perfect fit for us,” said Toynami’s president George Sohn. Inuyasha can be seen daily on Cartoon Network’s top-rated “Adult Swim” programming block, while Chobits DVDs and comic books are available at video stores and bookstores nationwide.
Prototypes for Toynami’s Inuyasha line will be shown at Toynami’s showroom at the American International Toy Fair in New York this week. Also on display will be products from Toynami’s much-anticipated Voltron: Defender of the Universe toyline, including the transformable VOLTRON LION MASTERPIECE. And don’t forget Robotech, because Toynami certainly hasn’t! On display will be the first two volumes in the eagerly awaited ROBOTECH MASTERPIECE COLLECTION: ALPHA FIGHTER series! From yesterday’s classics to today’s favorites, Toynami’s got it all!
