Just signs Tomy toy vending deal

Just Distribution has teamed up with Tomy Yujin to distribute its Pokemon Gacha Boxes.
Publish date:

The firm’s traditional Gacha vending machine was limited by price which meant many of the more substantial products that were in development could not be released into the market place.

Now it has introduced a self contained CDU called the Gacha Box. The Pokemon Evolution series has been the most notable of the Gacha Box releases so far, as it is one of the only products in the market place to offer Pokemons in their complete evolutionary sets.

Each large capsule contains one complete set of a Pokemon’s transformation with up to three figures included for £1.99.

Just Distribution is working closely with TYE in the UK to maximise the sales potential of the new format, and has already released the first two boxes in the market place. Further boxes will follow in Q4 this year and will include a special edition Diamond Pearl box for Christmas.
