MEDICOM TOY Exhibition ’18 @ Space O, Tokyo (July 21-26)
"Welcome to MEDICOM TOY EXHIBITON’18
MEDICOM TOY is a company with the spirit of novelty and global visions.
Celebrating the company’s 22nd anniversary, MEDICOM TOY EXHIBITION ’18 this year will again bring you new discoveries and innovations.
A lot of “products” created by MEDICOM TOY have influenced markets of various genres. It becomes more than a toy. As the products found themselves embedded with extra value, turning into interior and art pieces, MEDICOM TOY stepped onto a brand-new stage.
We walked on and every step we made was significant and inspiring. “Make things we want” is a strong message we sent to the world. Like a tree gained its growth rings, we are progressing and will keep on thriving.
MEDICOM TOY Exhibition ’18 will be held in Space O of Omotesando Hills for fans from all over the world, sparking your sensation and excitement like always.
We invite you to witness the growth of MEDICOM TOY, to find out interesting items and experience something new!" (medicomtoy.tv)

This used to be an annual event I was eagerly looking forward to, whilst not being able to be physically present WHERE the action took place, at the very least being able to bathe in the presence of online images LOL
Interest has waned drastically the recent years, maybe perhaps there is a glut of coverage, at the same time incomplete coverage, which leaves me somewhat frustrated, and I no longer possess the time to be able to collate all images and share here (as I did in past coverage), frustratingly so.
Given a time now especially when Medicom Toy has gone "beyond" securing the licenses of film and anime medias, including both overseas and Asia, as recently delving into "less mainstream" artists and designs, bringing them to the public consciousness, via their VAG/Vinyl Artist Gachas and BE@RBRICKS, and VCD/Vinyl Collectible Dolls - that has all increased their "interest"-levels in the global toy culture, IMHO :)
Joining D-Con! We had a meeting with the owners of Designer Con (D-Con) which will be held in Anaheim, CA in November 2018. MEDICOM TOY will participate in the event as an official partner with D-Con. We are planning special products for the show so please look forward to it! ----------------------------- 11月にアナハイムで開催されるデザイナーズコンベンション(D-Con)のショーオーナーの2人に表敬訪問頂き、今年、メディコム・トイはD-Conのオフィシャルパートナーとして同催事に参加することになりました。 日本で開催されるイベントとは一味違うラインナップで面白い試みを考えています。 どうぞお楽しみに！ https://www.designercon.com/ @designercon #DCon2018 #medicomtoy #toy #partnership
