Cross World Connections recently announced that Blythe dolls will have a new distributor starting July 2021.
Takara Tomy will no longer manufacturer Blythe after July 2021. But will continue to offer after-sales service for dolls made by them.
The new company taking over the operations for Blythe dolls is none other than the popular hobby manufacturer, Good Smile Company.
Yes, you read that right.
Good Smile Company will be the manufacturer & wholesale distributor for Blythe dolls while Cross World Connections will remain as the creative directors and producers for the dolls.
I don’t know about you but I’m strangely excited by this news (maybe more than I should be).
I have no idea what it all means or how things will change for the better, hopefully not for the worse.
But I’m remaining optimistic about this relationship.
This news is very surprising but has the potential to be beneficial for collectors, Blythe, Cross World Connections and Good Smile Company.
Only time will tell.
