The other day at Super Festival 58, I had a chat with the owner of Marusan. He's a very nice, dapper gentleman, and he clued me in on some breaking news for Marusan. The company is in the process of finalizing a deal with a US distributor to have their figures sold overseas. That will hopefully be concluded within a number of months. As I understand it, the plan is for sales to be through the Marusan USA website, which currently has a few pages of information about the company.
So for all you fans of Marusan's Goji, Hedorah, and other figures - hang onto your hats, cuz the sofubi train is a rollin' westward! Wait, what? Problem with the metaphor? See, it's a hover train, so it will simply glide over the Pacific with its sofubi payload. Du-uh... ^_^
