Bluefin was founded with one goal in mind: bring the best of the hobby industry from the Japanese market to the US, at the most competitive prices. They do so by scouting out the latest trends in Japan and working with Japanese manufacturers to reflect demand in the American market. This combination of leading edge, two-way information flow allows Bluefin to best meet today’s market demand for classic models and new releases. Their attention to clients’ needs and manufacturers’ products has yielded several exclusive dealership arrangements.
Bluefin has the distinct advantage of being the only distributor within its industry to have a direct presence in Japan. They find this to be a key advantage in discovering new products and trends. Their dealers have come to rely on Bluefin for latest releases, news and events from Japan.
They currently are official distributors for Bandai Hobby, Bandai Candy Toy, GSI Creos, Square-Enix, Kotobukia, 3A Toys in the U.S. and the exclusive official distributor for Bandai Collectors aka Tamashii Nations for North America.
