Space Runaway Ideon Action Figure


TORRANCE, CA, November 23rd, 2004 – Yamato USA’s very own massive mascot gets the action figure treatment… and we couldn’t be prouder! As part of Yamato’s Story! Image! Mechanics! line celebrating the giant robots of Japanese animation, Ideon is a faithful 1/600 scale reproduction of the mecha from Yoshiyuki Tomino’s (Mobil Suit Gundam) groundbreaking anime, Space Runaway Ideon.

Ranked among the top 25 best animes of all time and the inspiration for Neon Genesis Evangelion, Ideon is the tale of humanity’s pursuit of knowledge, leading them to the distant planet Solo. There among the ruins of a long dead alien civilization, they find the three-part, super robot, Ideon. However, they soon come under attack and are forced to flee aboard the legendary giant robot, thus beginning their lives as space runaways… that is until everyone is killed and Ideon, in its own death throws, destroys the entire universe.

Measuring approximately 7.5”, Yamato’s Ideon features an impressive 26 points of articulation for astounding posability. Ideon also comes packaged in a truly stylish collector’s window box with an extra set of hands; but not his mini black hole canon, for obvious reasons.

Ideon is available through AAA Anime, Diamond Comics, Echo Base, Forbidden Planet, Midtown Comics, Newbury Comics, Puzzle Zoo, Tao Toys, Things From Another World, Wonderland, and Valkyrie Exchange. For more information visit the Yamato USA website at www.YamatoToysUSA.com.

Collectibles from Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence,
and ROD the TV


TORRANCE, CA, November 23rd, 2004 – Get a jump on your holiday shopping with three great gift ideas now making their way to stores from Yamato USA!



Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex PVC Statue Twin Pack
Fresh from the Cartoon Network’s explosive Adult Swim premier of Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex come two exceptional figures in one convenient pack – Section 9’s Major Motoko Kusanagi and Batou. Pre-posed and painted, these PVC statues are sculpted on a 6.5” scale and come packaged in a collector’s style window box. A must for Ghost in the Shell fans!



Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence Poster Figure
The DVD won’t hit stores until after the holidays, but Ghost in the Shell fans can still pick up this memento from the film, Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence. A 3-D replication of the film’s promotional poster, the Innocence Poster Figure was previously only available in Japan with purchase of a movie ticket. Now this unique collectible is making its way to hobby/collector stores around the US!



ROD the TV – Michelle PVC Statue
From the popular ROD the TV series appearing on G4tech TV’s Anime Unleashed, Maggie is the eldest of the Paper Sisters and the first in a series of PVC statues from Yamato. Standing approximately 7” and packaged with display base in a collector’s style window box, this statue captures the very style and essence of Michelle perfectly. A nice gift for ROD fans with Maggie to follow in early spring of next year.
