    Summer WonFest 2017: figmas

    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!

    Winter WonFest 2017: figmas

    We’ve already shown you Pokemon figmas, Tracer and Genji from Overwatch, some new Fate/Grand Order figmas, Persona 5 figmas, and Utena, but it’s not a Wonder Festival if Max Factory and co don’t shove every possible franchise ever down our throats in poseable 1/12th scale form!

Okay, not pointless for the companies, but kind of pointless for us. Except we get to look at all the pretty figures again?

    The goodies from Good Smile Company, Max Factory, Phat! Company, Wing, and FREEing were on display, along with several of the Nendoroids and figmas. I mean, not all of them, obviously. Because that would be a, like, 100+ picture gallery. And they’d have to haul way too much stuff over. So for now, check out the selection they had at the event!

    Summer WonFest 2015: figmas

    Figmas: those tiny poseable things that Max Factory and a few other companies make a ton of every year. So without further adieu, here’s a super long list of em.

  • <p><a href="http://www.plastikitty.com/home/winter-wonder-festival-2015-figmas/attachment/wf2015wfigmasheader" rel="attachment wp-att-65347"></a></p> <p>We’ve already showed off two figma announcements thus far, <a href="http://www.plastikitty.com/home/winter-wonder-festival-2015-max-factorys-yu-gi-oh-figures" target="_blank">Yami Yugi from Yu-Gi-Oh!</a> (which WILL also get a Dark Magician Girl figma, thanks for the heads up Germaniac!) and the <em><a href="http://www.plastikitty.com/home/winter-wonder-festival-2015-magic-knight-rayearth-figmas" target="_blank">Magic Knight Rayearth</a></em> announcement. Just like Nendoroids, most of what the Good Smile Company umbrella seems to bring anymore are smaller cheaper figures they can sell a veritable buttload of, so while Good Smile Company has a handle on all things chibi with Nendoroids, Max Factory is taking care of all of our poseable needs with over 30 new figmas.</p> <p>Up in the header we’ve got the newest Racing Miku design for 2015 that looks like all of the other ones, but with some new gradients and more clear plastic on her, the protagonist from <em>Persona 4</em>, who looks badass as all hell, and Rin Tohsaka from <em>Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Blade Works</em>. We’ve also got an announcement of Emiya Shirou, also from <em>Unlimited Blade Works</em> (who in the world actually WANTS this?), Angela Balzac from <em>Expelled From Paradise</em>, new versions of Asuna, Kirito, and Leafa from <em>Sword Art Online II</em>, Haruna and Takao from <em>Aoki Hagane no Arpeggio: Ars Nova</em>, Conan from <em>Mirai Shounen Conan</em>, Holmes from <em>Meitantei Holmes</em> (who is awesome), an Iron Man mark XXI (because people totally asked for this…), Kiryuu Kazama from <em>Ryuu ga Gotoku</em>, R. Tanaka Ichirou from <em>Kyuukyoku Choujin R</em>, and Iona from <em>Gekijouban Aoki Hagane no Arpeggio: Ars Nova DC</em>. Yeah, lots of characters from things people don’t really know yet again.</p> <p>Then in generic moe girl land, I mean, iDOLM@STER and Love Live land, we’ve got enough tiny girls to keep you happy forever. On the iDOLM@STER side of things we’ve got Rin Shibuya, Uzuki Shimamura, and Mio Honda.

    Winter Wonder Festival 2015: figmas

    We’ve already showed off two figma announcements thus far, Yami Yugi from Yu-Gi-Oh! (which WILL also get a Dark Magician Girl figma, thanks for the heads up Germaniac!) and the Magic Knight Rayearth announcement. Just like Nendoroids, most of what the Good Smile Company umbrella seems to bring anymore are smaller cheaper figures they can sell a veritable buttload of, so while Good Smile Company has a handle on all things chibi with Nendoroids, Max Factory is taking care of all of our poseable needs with over 30 new figmas.

    Up in the header we’ve got the newest Racing Miku design for 2015 that looks like all of the other ones, but with some new gradients and more clear plastic on her, the protagonist from Persona 4, who looks badass as all hell, and Rin Tohsaka from Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Blade Works. We’ve also got an announcement of Emiya Shirou, also from Unlimited Blade Works (who in the world actually WANTS this?), Angela Balzac from Expelled From Paradise, new versions of Asuna, Kirito, and Leafa from Sword Art Online II, Haruna and Takao from Aoki Hagane no Arpeggio: Ars Nova, Conan from Mirai Shounen Conan, Holmes from Meitantei Holmes (who is awesome), an Iron Man mark XXI (because people totally asked for this…), Kiryuu Kazama from Ryuu ga Gotoku, R. Tanaka Ichirou from Kyuukyoku Choujin R, and Iona from Gekijouban Aoki Hagane no Arpeggio: Ars Nova DC. Yeah, lots of characters from things people don’t really know yet again.

    Then in generic moe girl land, I mean, iDOLM@STER and Love Live land, we’ve got enough tiny girls to keep you happy forever. On the iDOLM@STER side of things we’ve got Rin Shibuya, Uzuki Shimamura, and Mio Honda. Then for Love Live we’ve got nine new figmas: Ayase Eri, Hoshizora Rin, Koizumi Hanayo, Kousaka Honoka, Minami Kotori, Nishikino Maki, Sonada Umi, Toujou Nozomi, and Yazawa Niko.

    Last, but not least, we’ve got more goofiness as The Thinker and Venus de Milo have popped up again in figma form. Will these ever see the light of day? Who knows! But we’ve got enough to tide us over until their eventual release with a little bit of everything.
