Yamato Introduces New Line of Collectibles Highlighting the Talents of Japan's Leading Sculptors



Torrance, CA, June 29, 2006 – On the leading edge of Japanese pop culture, Yamato USA, the North American division of the Yamato Toy Group with headquarters in the otaku capital of the world - the Akihabara district of Tokyo, Japan, is exceedingly pleased to announce the release of Yamato's latest line of collectible figures: the Japanese Sculptor Original Character Series. Yamato's Japanese Sculptor Original Character Series (JSCOS) pays tribute to the leading sculptors of Japan and their most stunning original creations. First in the series is Kouichi Yamazaki (TANDEM TWIN)'s Animal Girls – LYNX (RUBY) and INABAYA's Bunny Girl - Ridia.



JSOCS: TANDEM TWIN Animal Girls – LYNX (RUBY) PVC Statue

Yamato is exceeding pleased to bring the works of renowned Japanese sculptor Kouichi Yamazaki (TANDEM TWIN) to the international audience as part of its new Japanese Sculptor Original Character Series. Featured here from TANDEM TWIN's Animal Girls series is a 1/6 scale PVC statue of his Animal Girls – LYNX (RUBY), all geared up and ready for action. There's more to this dangerously cute kitty-cat than meets the eye, though, with a secret weapon that is sure to surprise and delight mature collectors. The first production run of TANDEM TWIN's Animal Girl – LYNX (RUBY) has been a sell-out success, with TANDEM TWIN's Animal Girl – LYNX (EMERALD) sure to follow late July / early August.



JSOCS: INABAYA Bunny Girl - RIDIA

Yamato is further pleased to bring the works of renowned Japanese sculptor INABAYA to the North American audience. Featured here is INABAYA's Bunny Girl - RIDIA, dolled up in a very sexy cross between cocktail dress, magician assistant's outfit and school girl uniform that just may prove to be two sizes too small as she alluring prepares to peel it away. Measuring approximately 7.5", this PVC statue features real fishnet stockings and two sets of bunny ears to capture RIDIA's many moods. Window boxed, INABAYA's Bunny Girl - RIDIA comes packaged with display base. Also available in special edition white.
