Hobby Japan Tokens

Index | First Series | Second Series | Third Series


Hobby Japan, was the local Magic distributor in Japan and organizer of the Japanese tournament environment. In 2002 Hobby Japan introduced a temporary Promo reward program starting with Odyssey which featured five Promo tokens figures. They come in a clear sealed wrapper inside a white box except for Champions of Kamigawa that were in a black sealed wrapper. They are made of plastic and measure approximately 1.18" (3cm). The name of the token, power/toughness and ability is mentioned on the front of the piedestal. On the bottom of the tokens, there are three logos: Magic: the Gathering, Wizards of the Coast and Hobby Japan.

The first Odyssey/Onslaught series was sent in April 2004 to some MTG stores in the US as a thanks reward for participating in the Premier Store program.

A second series of five Promo tokens figures was available with Mirrodin:
"Collect 9 barcode parts of Japanese Mirrodin booster packs, and send them to Hobby Japan with an envelope for sending back. Then you can get one Mirrodin's token figure. 20,000 first arrivals get it!

"Token" indispensable for playing magic is three-dimensionalized as a powerful high quality figure!
