Tokyo Toy Show starts tomorrow
The Tokyo Toy Show opens tomorrow at the Big Sight Convention Center for a four day run. The first two days are trade only, but on Saturday and Sunday the event is open to the public, and admission is free.
It's not clear how many robots or robot related toys will be exhibited, and we're not expecting much given the overall state of the economy, the fact that robots are usually grouped in the "hobby" category, and their pricing is normally higher than most toys. It will be interesting, in any case.
Takara Tomy appears to have scored the largest space (lower right hand corner above), and is sure to be showing at least a few robot products.
Upstairs, on the 4th floor, Bandai will have a large space also, and may have some interesting products to show. We've always expected more in the way of robotics from them, especially given their sponsorship of robot initiatives like MicroMouse and ROBO-ONE.
