A new collectible source for those of us otaku located in North America is just about to launch. Ultra Tokyo Connection, or UTC for short, will distribute toys and hobby goods from companies such as Good Smile Company, Max Factory, FREEing, and Phat! Company.
UTC is a collaboration between Good Smile Company from Tokyo, Japan and Koto International, LLC which is based in Irvine, California. Koto International is currently responsible for distributing products from Japanese hobby goods maker, Kotobukiya Co., Ltd. and is a large part of Kotobukiya’s highly successful lines of Star Wars, Marvel and DC Comics collectibles.
Combining the expertise of both GSC and Koto is genius and spells good news for North American collectors. We’re excited to have another source to get our otaku on from and can’t wait for them to open up their online shop. Until then, we’ll be hitting up the Ultra Tokyo Connection website everyday in anticipation.
