This set will feature the much awaited helicopter unit which will be the first large-sized attachment added to the series.
The helicopter unit will be detachable and also be attached to the earlier released 35 WeGo products, so we urge our fans to try it on various WeGo items to find your favorite combination.

The set will come in a transparent case which can be used to pose and display the WeGo along with the helicopter unit. The display case is designed to be attached and stacked on top of each other, which will make this series easy to collect.

As with other parts, these new parts can be mixed and matched with parts from all releases of the 35 MechatroWeGo to create your very own WeGo with original color patterns!
The new parts can be removed and the WeGo can be switched back to the original form of the earlier 35 WeGo releases.
The product will come in a transparent case which can be used to pose and display your WeGo conveniently. The case is designed to be attached and stacked on top of each other which will make this item easy to collect.

IZMOJUKI, the first mecha series from 1000toys.
The IZMOJUKI series will be a core-based toy which allows you to mix and match parts from different types to build your own mechs.
Designed by the mecha designer Junji Okubo, who is famous for his works on the original ‘Steel Batalion’ game as well as various anime series, this will feature a mecha design different from what we consider as classic mechs.
Making its first appearance out of Asia, this is a must see for the mecha lovers at ToyCon UK
About Junji Okubo
From designing the classic Vertical Tank mecha for the original “Steel Battalion”, to the transforming Strike Suit space fighters in “Strike Suit Zero”, Junji Okubo has defined a fresh new industrial aesthetic in the varied realm of mecha design.
Eschewing much of the theatrics common in Japanese mecha, Junji Okubo approaches mecha as machines that could almost exist in real life. The result of this approach is a unique visual style that has a very broad appeal.
The mark of a classic mecha is, whether if its form follows function. With all of Junji Okubo’s designs, you can quickly see what they are used for and how they could work. It’s this charm that has made his work so accessible and engaging.
A new Toa Heavy Industries line will be revealed at ToyCon UK 2016
