Bandai was founded by Naoharu Yamashina in Tokio in 1950 and soon became renowned for its detailed tinplate car models in larger scales, among others in the "Automobiles of the World" series launched in 1959. In the 1960s, the company started producing plastic kits and has remained active in this business until present days. Furthermore, toy figurines related to popular television and comic series, als well as electronic toys were added to the range. In the 1970s and 1980s, Bandai also manufactured diecast model cars, namely contemporary sports and racing cars in 1/43rd scale, commercial vehicles in smaller scales and a 1/35th scale model of a 1987 Nissan Be-1 made in collaboration with Shinsei. With the merger of Bandai and video game developer Namco in 2005, the Bandai Namco Group became the world's third-largest toy producer, after Mattel and Hasbro.
