Bandai Namco Toys & Collectibles America is ready to hit Comic-Con International: San Diego (SDCC) with brands beloved by every pop culture fanatic! The offerings include Sand Land, Tamashii Nations, Tamagotchi, and, of course, Dragon Ball. Dragon Ball is a huge brand with a huge fanbase, so it had to bring that energy to SDCC. Guests can step into a full outdoor interactive experience with photo opportunities, product displays, dioramas, and even games.
