SDCC05: Yamato USA at San Diego Comic Con International
TORRANCE, CA, July 12th, 2005 - Yamato USA, a leader in the import and distribution of Japanese collectibles including miniature trading figures and PVC statues under the Story! Image! Figure! brand, cordially invites those attending the San Diego Comic Con International to visit the Yamato booth to preview new and upcoming products, including the recently announced Story! Image! Figure! (SIF): Samurai Champloo Miniature Figure Twin Packs.
Featured on [Adult Swim] and released on DVD through Geneon Entertainment (volumes one and two now available), Samurai Champloo is the tale of three misfits in Meiji-era Japan: Mugen, a buck wild warrior - violent, thoughtless and womanizing; Jin, a vagrant ronin - mysterious, traditional and highly skilled; and Fuu, a ditzy waitress on a quest for a samurai "who smells of sunflowers."As can be expected from director Shinichiro Watanabe (Cowboy Bebop), Samurai Champloo is unlike any other samurai series, seamlessly blending historical drama, savage fight scenes and dry, off-beat humor all with a hip-hop flair.
Yamato's SIF: Samurai Champloo Miniature Figure Twin Packs will include a 4"scale figure of either Mugen, Jin or Fuu each with interlocking bases and corresponding figural bust magnet. Scheduled for release this Winter, each twin pack will come blister carded with a suggested retail price of $11.99. A preview of the figures can be seen on Yamato USA's website, here.
As a special part of its activities at the Comic Con International, Yamato USA is exceptionally pleased to announce that it will raffle off ten complete sets of its SIF: Samurai Champloo Miniature Figure Twin Packs. Two very lucky winners will be randomly selected each day with prizes being awarded at the time of actual product release this Winter. Simply visit the Yamato USA booth and complete a raffle ticket with name and contact number.
See you at the Con!
