BANDAI NAMCO Amusement Europe Ltd. (BNAE) has expanded its range of licensed plush and gifts and is looking forward to unveiling the new line-up at the upcoming EAS show, including its new range of Shazam plush.
Due for release in April 2019, Shazam is a new DC Comics film featuring Dwayne Johnson (the Rock) Zachary Levi, Mark Strong and Grace Fulton. The movie – about a foster kid who becomes a superhero – is tipped to become a huge hit and is already highly anticipated with trailers attracting massive views online.
In addition, BNAE will show a new range of ‘cube’ DC plush that stacks perfectly for cranes and creates a great display. The range is very high quality but priced extremely competitively and is also available in a smaller size for pushers and redemption.
These new ranges join the existing comprehensive range of DC plush and a full range of DC Comics gifts at all price points.
Due to the success of the Scooby Doo range this year, BNAE has widened the choice of characters to include Daphne, Fred and Velma, so players can add to their collections. Scooby Doo has proved to be a perfect ‘evergreen’ licence popular with all ages.
PAC-MAN loses none of his shine, in fact, he is now available in a new ‘shiny’ range which will be unveiled at EAS. There is also now a PAC-MAN fabric covered ball, which we anticipate earn its place in the popular range of PAC-MAN gift products.
Other fantastic licences secured by BNAE include Minecraft – the hit online construction game which appeals to both boys and girls, which is also the subject of a new movie to be released around May 2019.
There will a new Shaun the Sheep movie: Farmageddon released next year – the first sequel that Aardman has ever produced. In honour of this, BNAE has developed a new Shaun range, which is expected to be just as successful as previous ranges exclusively developed.
In addition, BNAE will show its latest range of My Little Pony plush to cater for continuing demand.
Finally, BNAE’s Darrell Simmonds advises customers to visit the stand #2-110 in order to see a new ‘mystery’ range of plush and gift to be unveiled at the show. “It’s a full range of plush and gift for a new licence we have, not to give too much away but when you see the machine with the same licence and the potential of the brand you will be impressed!” he promises.
