Banpresto walking into memories

Banpresto has been around for as long as I can remember as the brand was having console games and the famous Crane or UFO toys prizes.

For some time Bandai had acquired some of Banpresto but only in 2006, Bandai full owned them.
Even having owned by Bandai, Banpresto brand still remain but that is about to change.

In the beginning of April 2019, the brand or label of Banpresto will be replaced by Bandai Spirits Co., Ltd.

What change to consumer is just the label which I guess many have grew fond and accustom to see the label especially for Prize toys.

The toys line still remain but under the new Bandai Spirit label. So no worry. Nonetheless, it still feel a bitter sweet.
