FLCL Photos Takara USA Launches New Line of Japanese Pop-Culture Dolls in September
Takara USA launches a new line of female collectible dolls called Tokyo Posse. The first properties in this line will be a pair of fashion forward figures that are "must-haves" for fans and collectors of Japanese pop culture and anime. Haruhara Haruko and Samejima Mamimi from the ultra-popular anime series, FLCL (Fooly Cooly) will make their debut in September 2005.

A limited number of Tokyo Posse dolls will be available prior to the September launch date at Anime Expo 2005, Comic Con International 2005, and Otakon 2005 at the Broccoli International exhibits. A limited edition FLCL Medical Mechanica "Employee of the Month" mug will be included with purchase of these "exclusives" while supplies last.

Takara's new Tokyo Posse line will feature the extraordinary details and workmanship that has made Jenny a fashion doll icon. Tokyo Posse is geared toward older anime/manga and Japanese pop culture enthusiasts. FLCL aficionados will appreciate the painstaking replication in accessories like Haruko's knee-high boots, scarf, goggles, and helmet and Mamimi's school uniform and book bag. Both dolls include stands.
