  • 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]

  • 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! [via 1up, tom matsumodo, & hanpenx]

  • While Kotobukiya’s Toy Fair booth is mostly focused on US-centric licenses like comic and movie toys (the new anime reveals are saved for Wonder Festival), they always bring a few on over for us. And, unsurprisingly, they’re mostly from shows that are popular here like Cowboy Bebop, Black Butler, Code Geass, and Cardcaptor Sakura. My favorite, though, was the gorgeous Charlotta from Granblue Fantasy. She’s so detailed but so tiny and cute! And the ruffles. So many of my favorite things.

  • Kalmia Project is one of those strange, brand-new NSFW companies that Native is suddenly distributing. They all seem to have Native-like quality, no? And Native themselves are distributed by GSC. It’s a confusing world of naked figures. Kalmia might be new to the scene, but they showed some awesome stuff off at Wonder Festival. They only had 3 sculpts out, but the White Elf in particular is quite impressive. There’s also a bunny girl illustrated by Ogin Bara and a demon girl illustrated by Houtengeki. And of course we have to have a few art announcements! Check ’em out in the gallery below. [via Kalmia’s Twitter]

  • Nendoroids. I love ’em, but on days like this I think to myself “why are there so many?!” We’ve seen the Nendos from Persona 5 and Fate/Grand Order. But there’s more. SO MANY MORE. We’ve got a surprise Lum, Fullmetal Alchemist cuties, Atlas & P-Body, Tony Taka Racing Miku, a new Kirby x2, Leonard Watch, Li from Cardcaptor, maiko Madoka Nendoroids, a Detective Conan quartet, new Rin & Len, even more Love Live!, Vocaloids Rin & Len, Attack on Titan, Re:Zero, a new Reimu (who looks sooo much better than the old one), Little Witch Academia, Fire Emblem, Kimi no Na wa, Ero Manga-sensei, Granblue Fantasy, Kyoukai no Rinne, Serval from Kemono Friends (so cute!! but why is the African mammal white guys), Saga of Tanya the Evil, Little Armory, Tsuki ni Yorisou Otome no Sahou, BanG Dream!, Is the order a Rabbit?, AND MORE. So much more. Like many cool Nendoroid accessories: tanks for them to ride in, penguin & bear suits, special Halloween and Christmas sets… check ’em out below, and decide what tiny plastic babies to spend your hard-earned money on.

  • Broccoli is really one of those “almost” companies. So many of the things they do are… almost great. They’ll have a really cool sculpt with sub-par paint, or a sculpt that’s awesome except for one specific flaw. Like Narmaya in the header: that base/diorama is FANTASTIC, but 1) her boobs are stupid and 2) the hair and face seem a little more simplistic than the rest. However, I think their Kurumi Tokisaki is really cool! They had some neat franchises on display, like God Eater, Hetalia, and BlazBlue, are really cool. But none of them ever really click with me, you know? [via figsoku]

  • It seems like every year Good Smile goes bigger and bigger. We’ve already seen their Fate/Grand Order scales, but they have over 25 others at the event. So let’s just dive right in! A massive amount of the announcements are from Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata: Utaha Kasumigaoka, Eriri Spencer Sawamura, Michiru Hyoudou, and Megumi Katou are all getting swimsuit figures. There will also be a figure of Eriri in the very strange ‘Hot Limit’ line that also includes Uzuki Shimamura (with floating boobs!) and Sonico. Speaking of Sonico, her wedding figure is painted. So disappointed: I wish she was less tacky, because the sculpt is gorgeous. Moving on, we have Albedo painted, along with the teased Miku Hatsune and Vira. Their Rem from Re:Zero will of course have a matching Ram, and they’ll give us (of course) a second Rem–the birthday cake version. From KanColle there’s Warspite and Shigure, and some other weapon-wielding ladies like Arisa from Shadowverse & Izetta from Shuumatsu no Izetta. Both Mitsuha Miyamizu and Taki Tachibana from Kimi no Na wa will also be getting figures. Not enough? Well, there’s more! Wilhelmina and Mei Irizaki from High School Fleet, an amazing diorama from Dead Dead Demon’s Dededededestruction, Sayaka & Kyouko,¬†Phosphophyllite from Houseki no Kuni. Damn, that’s a lot of figures! [via whl4u]

  • 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. [via AmiAmi’s Twitter]

  • It’s that time again! Time to look at a few of the garage kits that will be on display and for sale at Wonder Festival. Of course for most of us this is just to drool over, but as always if you are attending the event each picture is labeled with the circle & character name! Also, I am insanely jealous of you. The trends this year are basically what you would expect. Tons of Re:Zero (and by that I mean tons of Rem & Ram, who cares about the other characters!), idol shows out in force, and quite a bit of Granblue Fantasy. Some old trends seem to be dying (there’s very little of Miku & Sonico compared to previous years). And, surprisingly, Cartoon Network is represented quite a bit. Check them all out in the gallery below, and let us know what you’d like to see as PVC! [via Grizzry Panda, mokupate, Volks, Kotopora, Primal Heart, fixia, Anadigi, Tinami]

  • Winter Wonder Festival is tomorrow night (along with the first day of Toy Fair–gonna be a busy day for us!) and the teaser flood is upon us. First up is the teaser king, GSC. Every year they show us so many new goodies that I think there’s no way any surprises will be left for the event… and every year I’m wrong. Like usual, we have a mix of scaled teasers and Nendo teasers. Vira from Granblue Fantasy is painted, along with Hasabe Heshikiri from Touken Ranbu. It seems like Atilla from Fate/Grand Order is too! And the Girls und Panzer Nendo Petit line is ready for action. There’s a new Miku (wow surprise!), Fate/Grand Order petits, Warspite Nendo from KanColle, Kagari Atsuko from Little Witch Academia, and more. Check ’em all out in the gallery! Who is the interesting sitting figure, I wonder? [via Kahotan]
