The exhibits will include more than 60 products from Tamashii Nations, Bandai Hobby, MegaHouse, and Banpresto. Fans can check out the tour at Booth No. 2602, which will be packed with event-exclusive One Piece collectibles and even some free souvenirs.

Booth No. 2406 will host the Gundam Base Los Angeles Pop-Up Experience, which recreates the experience of the Gundam Base in Japan. The booth will have exclusive promotions, more than 100 model kits for sale, and a chance for multiple fans to win in an Ultimate Gundam Giveaway that includes merch from Bandai Hobby, Tamashii Nations, MegaHouse and more.

Digimon and Kamen Rider will be in Booth No. 2211, with products from both franchises available for purchase and upcoming collectibles on display. Additionally, on July 2 at 2 p.m., there will be a Team Kamen Rider Meet-Up in the same booth. This will be followed by a Kamen Rider panel in Room 403AB that evening at 7:30 p.m. The panel will feature director Yousuke Kabashima and Writer Brandon Easton. A special screening of the new anime series Fuuto PI will follow the panel.

Finally, the Bandai Namco Toys and Collectibles America Booth (No. 2606) will offer a curated product showcase featuring Tamashii Nations, MegaHouse, and Shokugan with products from brands including Dragon Ball, Demon Slayer, Naruto, Jujutsu Kaisen, Evangelion, Animal Crossing, Macross, Ultraman, and more.
