    Winter WonFest 2016: Milestone & Myethos

    Figure companies are strange things. Milestone seems to be absorbing the smaller company Myethos, or at least doing distribution for them in Japan because they had all their figures at WonFest! Including the gorgeous wedding Nia and the Queen of Hearts, who I am in love with.

    Then we have Milestone’s own figures, including lots of announcements! Like Rinko Akiyama from Taimanin Yukikaze 2, Mashihiro Arisaka from Ao no Kanata no Four Rhythm, and Natsuha Sawai from Monobeno.
