        Huh, I wasn't expecting that. I wonder why Hasbro isn't doing their own distribution there anymore. This could be a good thing, Hot Toys knows that market a lot better than Hasbro. This makes a very weird licensing triangle: Hasbro sub-licenses 12-inch figures to Sideshow, Sideshow distributes and works with Hot Toys for some 12-inch pieces, and now Hot Toys distributes Hasbro product in Japan.

        Didn't Tomy do it in the past? Did they do it up until this Hot Toys deal?

      Indeed. My dad had dementia, but he also had lung cancer. About a couple months after he started treatment for the cancer, his mind kind of gave out.
