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. For further information about the ATM-09-ST Scopedog and other fine Yamato products, please visit the Yamato USA website at www.YamatoToysUSA.com
