Studio Ghibli At Fan Expo Toronto
Bandai Namco Toys & Collectibles America Inc. (BNTCA) is headed to Fan Expo Canada this weekend (Aug 25-28) and they are thrilled to return to the city of Toronto. BNTCA last visit was back in 2019. For those who did not get a chance to visit, they had a workshop placed right outside their booth, where all attendees were welcomed to build a model kit. Model kits offered during this workshop was the Transformers Furai Model line (Bumblebee, Optimus Prime, or Starscream) from Flame Toys or Star Wars vehicle model kits such as the Y-Wing from Bandai Hobby.
This year, Bandai Namco Toys & Collectibles America Inc. is bringing Studio Ghibli to Fan Expo like you’ve never seen before. Currently, Studio Ghibli has made their appearance at multiple conventions such as Wondercon, Anime Expo, and most recently San Diego Comic-Con International. During each visit at a new event, crowds of new and familiar fans were excited to see the booth and what it had to offer.
As you’ll be able to experience at Fan Expo this weekend, the booth will have displays of official Studio Ghibli merchandise (My Neightbor Totoro, Princess Mononoke, Howl's Moving Castle, Castle in the Sky, Kiki's Delivery Service, etc.), which will be available for purchase, and photo opportunities of Totoro and a scaled-up version of paper Theater . You can even take home a (Pictured Left) FREE fan in the shape of Princess Mononoke’s mask (Pictured Right).
For the first time, Studio Ghibli will be hosting a special daily sweepstake at Fan Expo, with multiple winners.
To enter in this giveaway, attendees must take a photo with any of the photo-ops at the booth, and share on social media (Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram).
Entrees MUST use the hashtag #GhibliAndMe and be following @WorldofGhibli on any of their social media channels.
Winners will be chosen each day and notified via messages on the specific social media platform and can pick up their prize an hour before the convention closes the hall each day.
Bandai Namco Toys & Collectibles America Inc. looks forward to seeing and meeting all the Studio Ghibli fans at Fan Expo this year, as well as awarding out prizes to sweepstake winners.
