Toku Toy Box 2020 Announcement!
Once again it’s the time of year that the community and our staff love most – time for all of us to celebrate our respective holidays & traditions with the friends and loved ones we hold dear. Though this year things will look quite different on that front, due to the ongoing Covid-19 Pandemic. One thing that we can guarantee isn’t changing though, is our annual giveaway Toku Toy Box! Every year at this time TokuNation.com celebrates the wider tokusatsu community as well as itself. On January 4th 2021, we officially mark 9 years since TokuNation first went public as part of the network of TFW2005.COM, ToyArk.com, HissTank.com and PWRRNGR.com, through the hard work of both network owner Tony_Bacala and our founder and original Editor-In-Chief, TokuChris.
For 9 years now we’ve posted news, rumors, toy galleries, videos, and even dabbled in podcasts for a bit (never forget Talkin Toku!). As times have changed we’ve done our best to change with them, delivering you content in different ways, covering new and exciting topics, trying to improve our social outreach, and covering toylines new and old as they come and go.
