I have just read a wonderful news today. Enough to make me jump out of bed despite of being sick because of the rain. Anyway, according to a news from a trusted source, Bandai Namco holdings already announced that they are going to build a factory here in the Philippines with the initial purpose of making capsule toys and figures. The company will be named Bandai (Philippines) Inc. and the headquarters will be located at the province of Batangas. Good news for us collectors here in the Philippines!
The company will be founded with 400 million Philippine pesos in capital (about US$9.6 million), and the planned factory is scheduled to begin operating next summer. Bandai Namco Holdings has already founded subsidiaries in Hong Kong, China, and Thailand.
