It's that time of year again when DioWarriors takes to the skies and travels the world looking for action figures. This year is a little different than most other times since unforeseen events caused us to postpone our original travel dates -- and to a list of several countries -- to a smaller, more tighter schedule.
It is a disappointment. In April and May there are many national holidays in S.E. Asia. Our main stomping ground is Thailand. It is central to everything in Asia. Need to get to a toy convention in Singapore? It's a short flight from Bangkok. Need to get to a toy convention in Indonesia? Also a short flight. To the Philippines or Japan? Just 7 hours more or less. Thailand is an ideal location for being involved with the toy industry.
But Asia likes national holidays, and there are many. Most likely you've heard of Golden Week in Japan. Other countries have similar strings of days off. There is much travel and it gets quite fun. This year we plan to locate items to sell in the DioWarriors Store. If we have to miss conventions, then at least we can hit the markets and find items to enhance diorama scenes. Wish us luck!
