Company history
About Toycom    
Over the past several years, the booming collectible toy market has seen an unprecedented surge in interest in imported Japanese toys and action figures. Toycom was created to meet that need, to provide lower pricing, better availability and the highest quality possible, and to give American anime/manga fans the chance to get the toys they want, without bankrupting their wallets. Japanese toymaker Yamato and George Sohn founded Toycom in 1997.

Yamato purchased Toycom from George in October 2000. Both parties were sadden to see their partnership come to an end. After a few months rest and gathering his thoughts, George created his own toy company, Toynami.
About George Sohn    
George Sohn was sales representative for a number of major toy companies including Playmates and Toybiz. After a few years on the job and building a large customer base, George decided to form his own company and ended his representation for Playmates and Toybiz. A company in Japan heard about George's new plans and expressed an interest in establishing a partnership with him. That company was Yamato. George had previously helped Yamato obtain several toys lines such as 21st Century Toys, Toybiz, Moore Creations and X-Concepts.

George felt that many cool cartoons could support corresponding toy lines. His gut feeling was that many of cartoon companies were missing opportunities in the market and that he could do a better job. Thus in 1997, Yamato and George formed a new company under the name of Toycom.
