Japanese Start-Up Develops Service to Help Anime Figure Collectors Worldwide
“Sugo Toys Japan” subscription service will deliver a new toy every month, helping fans complete collectable sets at a reasonable cost.
TOKYO- The worldwide boom of Japanese pop-culture has increased the desire for figures and collectibles from popular anime, manga and videogame series. Yet sometimes collectable figures are not locally available or they carry a premium price.
In order to help fans enjoy the coolness and/or cuteness of Japanese toys, Sugo Toys Japan has been set-up as a monthly subscription service. Each month, fans anywhere in the world will receive a figure from a collection set at a reasonable price. With this service a collector will be able to have complete sets of their favorite characters.
Sugolog Inc. has scheduled the launch of Sugo Toys Japan for August 2012, but already there is a teaser website, a Facebook page and a Twitter account online. The company also plans to grow this service into a subscription service destination for a variety of Japanese products.
