As collectors, our focus for Wonder Festival is obviously on the things that you can, you know, actually buy. But at the event, purchasable PVC figures are outnumbered pretty substantially by garage kits. We of course brought you our usual before-event roundup, but it’s time to take a look at all the goodies that were out and about that day!
The quality ranges from amazing to god-awful, so we tried to bring you the cream of the crop. Though I will admit, quite a few in this gallery are just here because of how odd they are. Shirtless Gilgamesh? Girl getting (happily) eaten by a shark? Cat on a motorcycle? Check ’em out and tons more below the jump!

Amakuni is at it again, stealing all the money from my wallet. Damn them and their exclusive, beautiful merchandise! They really brought it this year. We have Anne from Persona 5 painted, and Makoto’s bike is there. From KanColle we have Libeccio, Ooyodo, Kashima, and Mutsu.
There’s the amazing Mega Man statue, Ryoubi from Senran Kagura, a lot of Fate/Grand Order (Rider of Black is painted, and we have 2 announced Casters), and 2 boys from King of Prism. Plus that amazing Michael? She’s here too, along with an announcement for Lisa from Majo to Hyakkihei 2. Oh, and surprise, the Tony Taka Racing Miku? They’re making her!

Kotobukiya always brings out the goods for Wonder Festival, and this year is no exception! We have a great lineup of figures here, starting with of course the painted Protagonist from Persona 5. Yes, my beauty, come home to me. In other game news, we have their new Pokemon girls! Or, well, one of them sculpted, and the outline of the other.
The Caster/Lancer from their teasers is here, and looking adorable. We’ve also got a few old announcements finally painted: Vira from Granblue Fantasy (give to me now yes), RyuuZU from Clockwork Planet, and Charlotte from Shironeko Project. There’s a new Girls und Panzer bikini line: Anchovy is painted, and Alice Shimada will be joining her soon. In other new announcements, they will be doing Victor from Yuri on Ice!! Check ’em all out below.

It’s almost Persona 5 time in the US! I mean, it was supposed to be Persona 5 time several days ago… probably good that it got delayed, because lemme tell you, I would NOT be here posting if it was out. I’d be playing. No regrets.
Anyway, we have quite a few figures from GSC & Co! The Protagonist figma, a figma announcement for Anne, a surprise Morgana Nendoroid (kawaii af), and the Phat! Company Futaba Sakura.
Now you may be asking, why is this NSFW Leah? Well lemme tell you. There is a GODDAMN MARA FIGMA. This is not a drill. This is real life. DREAMS COME TRUE.
[UPDATE] Added Pixie figma. Are they going to do a whole monster line?

Wonder Festival is less than a week away, and you know what that means–teaser time! I feel like every year these pop up sooner and sooner. It used to start on Wednesday and Thursday, now we get them at the beginning of the week! Well,the better to spread ’em out, I guess.
First up is Kotobukiya with 4 teasers. Two are of figures we already knew about: the protagonist from Persona 5 and RyuuuZU from Clockwork Planet. Then we have two new ones! There’s an ArtFX+ of Arrow (from the show, not the comics) and a new Lancer from Fate/Grand Order. Which is basically Caster Extra in a swimsuit? I’ll be honest, I have not the faintest clue what is going on with Fate anymore.
[UPDATE] We have some teaser artwork for the Ms Marvel Bishoujo! This will be on display at Toy Fair (which we will be covering in person!), but might also make a WF appearance.
[UPDATE 2] We also have Bishoujo Katana’s teaser! Thanks Marissa~

While Persona 5 isn’t even out in the US yet (grumble grumble), it’s certainly reaching peak hype in Japan. And thus, it’s time for figures! We recently found out about Amakuni’s Anne, who was at the most recent Persona-themed event, along with Aquamarine’s Caroline and Justine who are newly sculpted.
Then we have some new figures! Phat! Company surprised us all by showing off two sculpts: the main character and Futaba Sakura! Which means we have figures of most of the girls, something that’s (still) not even true for 3 or 4.

Just in time for the (Japanese) release of Persona 5, X-Plus is finally releasing their giant Jack Frost! I’ve been totally nuts for that thing since we first saw it, and while it’s been less than a year I seriously feel like I’ve been waiting my whole life. I mean, haven’t we all been waiting for an almost 16 inch tall Jack Frost? Yeah, that’s how big this bad boy is.
And, surprisingly, his price isn’t too insane given the size. ¥14,800, which is less than a lot of fancy 1/8 scale stuff is this day (sadly). A price I am more than willing to pay, even when I’m down to only 2 or so figures a month. Heck, if I had to pick one release for October it would be this cutie.

Aquamarine, a company that I usually overlook, has really been going out of their way to impress recently and their lineup at this Wonder Festival was no exception. First off, my beautiful DAN waifu Rise is painted (I LOVE HER) and we also have a Persona 5 announcement. Their Guilty Gear Elphelt Valentine is painted, and they’ve also announced Jack-O’ Valentine and Jam Kuradoberi. They’ve also got a cat-girl Illya that’s slightly less creepy than Broccoli’s, Strike Witches, and lots more sculpts.
Really, they were all about the announcements this year. We’ve got 4 Girls und Panzer figures, Lala Manaka, Hikari Kohinata from Amanchu!, Saber Extra, Saber Lily, Galko-chan, Tenshi from Angel Beats, Mai Kawakami from Musaigen no Phantom World, and two Kiniro Mosaic figures. For once, I am really looking forward to some Aquamarine figures!

I feel like I’ve been waiting ages for the Persona 3 MC figma, and it’s finally at an end! He is at Wonder Festival sculpted. But that’s not enough for them, oh no. They’re giving us Persona fans a little something extra: the Persona 5 MC! The game isn’t even out yet and it’s getting merchandise, what kind of world is this we live in? The change between P3 “one figure and you better like it” and P4/5 “figures of all the things!” has been really dramatic, and I love it.

Have you ever looked at your collection with a wistful sigh and said, “you know what this is missing? Fond memories of the literal hundreds of times I’ve died in the Souls games.” Yeah, we’ve all been there. But between this announcement and Gecco’s Bloodbourne statue, the wait is over! We can now be reminded of our Dark Souls failures in every room of the house. Wow!
First 4 Figures has quite the lineup coming: as you can see from the header, Ornstein is being sculpted as we speak (and looks pretty badass). They will also be bringing us Artorias, Sif, Solaire, and a Knight in Elite Armor. Fingers crossed for Nito next! You know you want that creepy asshole just chilling in your living room.
