Fate/Extella Archive

  • Every year I feel like figmas at Wonder Festival just kind of try to outdo the previous Wonder Festival’s weirdness and randomness and this year is no exception. While we’ve got our standards here like a new Racing Miku and a new Miku variation from V4X and the female main character from Pokemon Sun and Moon that we already showed you, Li from Cardcaptor Sakura, Nero from Fate/EXTELLA, Kaiba from Yu-Gi-Oh!, Kaban from Kemono Friends, a handful of new Kantai Collection additions, and some more Little Armory additions, the rest seem to be a bit all over the place. Between the Dark Souls III figma and Kasumi from Dead or Alive, we’ve got some great video game additions that are less expected. Then we’ve also got the amazing announcement of a Tony Taka’s PANDORA figma, which should be great! Now in unexpected land we’ve got Arashi from Game Center Arashi, figma Kurogo, who just appears to be a random ninja, Goro Inogashira from Kodoku No Gurume, who just looks like a random middle aged Japanese guy in a suit, the wrestler Masahiro Chono, two figmas from Arms Note, and last, but not least, completely out of left field, a character from the 1977 movie Village of Eight Gravestones. Then the art line is being continued with Yuurei-zu and Nike and we’re also getting a figma of higma, the traditional bear carving. Check them all out in the gallery below!

  • You know what I want right before Wonder Festival? When we’re t-minus 7 hours away? A different event with like 50 new Fate/Stay Night figures at it! What joy, what excitement, what nonsense. The Fate/History event was showing off the figure history of, you guessed it, the Fate franchise, but it had SO MANY NEW FIGURES from every company who has put them out in the past: Good Smile Company, Max Factory, AlphaMax, Aquamarine, Pulchra, Myethos, Kotobukiya, PLUM, etc. Seriously just so many. The stars of the show for me were Pulchra’s very cute Marie Antoinette and Aquamarine’s sitting dress Saber EXTRA who looks so detailed and fantastic. But GSC had quite a few crazy gals on display too like the new Jeanne and Artoria Pendragon on a giant horse. I wonder how many arms & legs that will cost! [via Hobby Maniax]

  • It’s that time again! Wonder Festival is only 2 days away, so we’re bringing you our annual roundup of some of the best garage kits that will be at the event. Because, as you probably know, Wonder Festival has way more gks than PVC figures but we can’t get our greedy little paws on them. Plus, if we did, we can’t paint. But, as always, if you can paint/will be at the event, all images are labeled with both the circle & character name. The tides seem to be changing this WonFest. There’s very little of our usual standards, like Miku Hatsune or KanColle, and the new darling Re;Zero seems to have already fallen off. Instead we have a TON of Fate girls (both Grand Order and Extella), quite a bit of Persona 5 merchandise, and some truly stunning original characters. And more Adventure Time! Check them all out after the jump. [via i_con, horikazz, crea mode, amie grand, Akiba Weekend, moeyo, vispo, wonder showcase, mfc]

  • I used to really look forward to Phat! Company’s booth when they did pretty much nothing but IDOLM@STER. Those were good times. Times I look back fondly on. I mean, they still had quite a few IM@S girls at the event, like the super candy-sweet Frederica Miyamoto and a few older sculpts (that still aren’t painted!!). But it’s definitely slowed down. They did have some other things, like a brand-new wedding Rem and a few painted sculpts. But overall, not a ton of new things! And then we have a bunch of Fate/Grand Order announcements: Caster EXTRA, Saber EXTRA in a kimono, and Kiyohime Lancer. Hopefully they are as cute as the IM@S stuff! [via Phat’s Twitter]
