Highly Collectible Mehve Glider Set Previously Released Only in Japan Now Available for the First Time to Studio Ghibli Fans in North America!
What You Need to Know:
- While the popularity of its films has never waned over its 35-year history, Studio Ghibli is now enjoying a major resurgence as mainstream audiences everywhere experience its films for the first time – digitally. To address fan and collector demand, BANDAI NAMCO Collectibles (Bluefin) announced plans to offer exclusive limited-time and limited-run product for the first time ever in North America via its direct-to-consumer website BluefinBrands.com!
- The announcement was accompanied by Bluefin’s first such exclusive release – the Mehve Glider & Nausicaä Set (Full Action Ver.). Based on Hayao Miyazaki’s 1984 film “Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind,” this highly-sought-after figure set was originally released last October and only available for sale in Japan via pre-order from Premium Bandai.
- The Mehve Glider & Nausicaä Set is part of Bandai’s Souzou Galleria series, a collection of elaborate desktop models that reproduce the unique world of Studio Ghibli works, and features a poseable figure and transformable glider with built-in light feature. Fans are encouraged to act quickly. A very limited quantity of the Mehve Glider & Nausicaä Set is available. The figure set will not be restocked once it sells out.
- Bluefin manages a continuously expanding catalog of Studio Ghibli merchandise of more than 250 licensed items from accessories, toys, and collectibles to drinkware, bento boxes and towels based on a variety of Studio Ghibli properties including “My Neighbor Totoro,” “Spirited Away” and “Princess Mononoke.”
- Bluefin is also committed to making officially licensed merchandise accessible to consumers everywhere through its extensive network online and brick and mortar dealers – including major retailers like Barnes & Noble as well independent pop culture stores. As part of this strategy, the company has successfully launched “Studio Ghibli Via Bluefin,” which has quickly become the go-to storefront for officially licensed Studio Ghibli merchandise on Amazon.
