“We’re excited to be able to extend the Yu-Gi-Oh! brand through this appealing new collection from NECA,” said Jennifer Coleman, VP, Licensing & Marketing, 4KMedia. “It’s an important element in the resurgence of the brand and one we know will get both our fans and retailers excited, too.”
The collectibles through NECA will be exclusive branded artwork from the trading cards and will feature merchandise such as action figures, collectible replicas, collectible miniatures games, board games, puzzles, apparel, jewellery, accessories and more.
The first batch of merchandise is set to come out later this summer but unfortunately wont be making it to Asia at the moment.
