Mezco has sent over a new press release. They have announced the acquisition of the Gigantor license to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the U.S. debut of the character. Details are very scarce at the moment. But, with Toy Fair right around the corner, we may not have to wait too long for more info. I expect that we’ll see a variety of products and collectibles from Mezco, which will be coming in the third quarter of the year.
