“Bandai America will bring its extensive design and manufacturing resources to bear to develop an exciting and must-have line of toys and products to support BLUE DRAGON,” states Shodo Omatsu, President & COO, Bandai America Incorporated. “This property extends the most exciting attributes of video gaming and anime and represents a wide range of possibilities for the development of products designed for fans of all ages. We look forward to working with VIZ Media to make BLUE DRAGON a success.”


Bandai already released a series of gashapon figures in Japan, but if they are making a “line of toys” Bandai probably has more than a few tiny figures planned. This also puts Microsoft, Viz and Bandai in the same court; they are all banking on the success of Mistwalker’s first property. What if…. nah I won’t say it.
