Seemingly out of nowhere, like a glittery dusting of stars from the Classic Anime skies, comes a whole new collection of toys from Japanese toy company Tokyo Toys. And right now, they are focusing on Manga legend (really, the granddaddy of anime and manga as we know it) Osamu Tezuka and some of the amazing franchises of characters he’s created. Between Osamu Tezuka and Go Nagai, I swoon.
Check out the hot newness from HobbyLink Japan and get your hands on some of these beauties today!
