ADV TOYS FORMED
A.D. Vision has announced the founding of ADV Toys, the firm's new merchandise division and the latest major initiative of the Houston-based international multimedia concern.
The division will create toys and collectible merchandise based upon the firm's film, manga and original content holdings.
"We are launching ADV Toys at an opportune moment," said A.D. Vision president and CEO John Ledford. "Consumers who came to love Japanese animation, manga and other genre forms in their childhood and adolescence now have the resources to acquire and collect high-quality toys and models based on their favorite titles. And for younger age groups, we've identified extensive opportunities in age- and budget-appropriate toys and collectibles."
"As with all of this firm's divisions and major strategic initiatives, our cross-promotional capability is key to our launch of ADV Toys. We're able to reach consumers and potential consumers through ADV Films, ADV Manga, the monthly magazine Newtype USA, and via the Anime Network as well; it's an example of synergy at its best."
