Tokyo Toy Show 2010 will Start Tomorrow

The next big event for Gunpla fans after Shizuoka Hobby Show 2010 in May will be this one: Tokyo Toy Show 2010, which will be on from tomorrow (July 15th) till Sunday (July 18th) at Tokyo Big Sight. The first two days are for industry players, public viewing will be on the last two days.

From experience, Shizuoka Hobby Show is an event where Bandai Hobby Division would show off almost everything they have, including many items that will go MIA after that event. ^^; Tokyo Toy Show however, gives us a more concrete picture of what Bandai Hobby Division will be offering in the last quarter of year. I'm expecting to see the finalized release version of MG The O to be showcased, MG Gundam Deathscythe, HG 1/144 Gundam 00 Qan[T] should be on display as well. Somehow I suspect Bandai Hobby Division would prefer to keep certain new items under cover till Gundam Super Expo, an event dedicated to Gundam in August instead of showing them off tomorrow, but that's just my speculation.

Another event for Gunplas, Chara Hobby 2010 will be held in late August. ^^

As the name Tokyo Toy Show implies, Bandai Hobby Division's involvement in the event won't be as much as the completed figure department of Bandai, Tamashii Nation. I do expect Tamashii Nation to go for an "all out attack" at the event, as it didn't participate in this year's Shizuoka Hobby Show. ^^ Already announced previously that Robot Damashii [Side KMF] Sutherland will be on display (again) and perhaps the release details will be disclosed at the event as well.

On second thought, an event organized by Tamashii Nation itself, Tamashii Festival 2010 will be held in early August. Tamashii Nation might have plan to keep certain things under cover as well to keep the anticipation high for Tamashii Festival 2010. ^^

Not exactly sure what we're going to get at Tokyo Toy Show it seems. XD

For Transformers fans, several limited Transformers movie and Animated figures will be released at the event.
