UPDATED with some prototype shots (2/11/13): Straight from the American International TOY FAIR in New York comes word that Sanrio and NECA have announced a licensing agreement “to produce games, collectibles, toys and novelty items featuring HELLO KITTY and other Sanrio characters.” Translation: There’s more Hello Kitty stuff bound to show up in my daughters’ rooms here at Rock Father HQ in the months ahead.
NECA makes some great items (stuff that Daddy loves – GREMLINS, ROBOCOP, etc.), so I’m anxious to see what they’ll do with Hello Kitty.
NECA adds that “the new Hello Kitty line will cater to long-time collectors, with action figures and statues, high-end lamps, calendars, tea sets, vintage carrying cases, and more, as well as various tabletop games, plus a HeroClix miniature gaming collection from NECA’s games subsidiary WizKids.”
Products will begin hitting stores this summer.
