Japanese start-up, Sugo Toys has developed a new service that delivers a new toy every month in order to help fans to complete their collectable sets at a reasonable cost.
Avid fans of collectable sets will definitely rejoice upon discovering this piece of news. This is because collectors usually head out and purchase a new toy in stores, which can be a hassle for some due to unavailability of the toys at the local store.
Japanese pop-culture has flourished and encouraged the yearning for figures and collectibles from popular anime, manga and videogame series. As a result, many want these collectibles as personal collections. Unfortunately, not many are available locally and some may carry a premium price. Therefore, Sugo Toys Japan has been set up as a monthly subscription service to allow fans enjoy the cuteness of Japanese toys.
By subscribing to this service, fans from around the world will receive a figure from a collection set every month at a reasonable price. With this, fans are guaranteed of their collections as their favourite characters are never out of stock. Being first to receive them, these collectors will be the envy of many other non-subscriber collectors.
The launch of Sugo Toys Japan is scheduled to be released in August 2012 but there is already a teaser website, a Facebook page and a Twitter account online. The company has plans for expanding this service to subscription service destination for a variety of Japanese products.
Founded in December 2010 by founder and CEO, Masaru Nakajima, Sugolog.Inc focuses on multilingual social media marketing service. Sugolog.Inc aims to help solve marketing problems encountered by companies through platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, etc.
This company is able to help in research, planning, development, operation and analytics of their social media strategy. Besides that, this company is able to help their clients with global marketing needs as they even cater in Japanese, English, Spanish, Traditional Chinese and Vietnamese.
The company also runs a Facebook page under the name of SUGOJAPAN that provides news, information and contents related to Japanese pop-culture and tech-culture. The page has currently garnered more than 25,000 fans.
Sugolog.Inc’s motto is rather catchy. It is “Make it more SUGOI” (SUGOI means “cool” or “great” in Japanese). The middle term goal of this company is to make “contents that you would like to bookmark in your browser” by 2015. Finally, the long term goal is to make the word SUGOI become a part of the global language by 2040.
