  • While Phat! Company seems to be toning down on their IDOLM@STER line (my all-time fave from them), they still had quite a few nice figures out & about at Wonder Festival. Like our header girl, the Parform Mercedes, or their new No Game No Life figure. Or, of course, the new Fate/Grand Order figures. They also had a few exciting new announcements! Aqua & Megumin from Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku o! 2, Stephanie Dola from No Game No Life, and… the protagonist from Persona 5 in his school outfit! [via Phat’s twitter]

  • Ah, Flare: they make your faves but never paint them, and when they do, they’re insanely expensive. Can you tell I have a love/hate relationship with them? They seem to be moving at a solid pace with some of the announcements from last WonFest, though: Saber Bride and Gwendolyn are both painted, and we have a Nier update. Sadly, no news on Asuka or Blindi, but we do have some new figures: Golden Darkness, a new Elin, and Odin Sphere minis! [via amiami & pederisan]

  • Are you ready, guys? Because Wonder Festival has begun! Actually, it’s about half an hour away, but companies love to make me miserable by tweeting out their own stuff before doors even open. Yayy. First up today is Aquamarine, who has a small but nicely curated collection of figures. I of course love the Caroline & Justine the most, so presh so mean. We’ve also got IDOLM@STER, Girls und Panzer, Galko-chan, Sakura Wars, an announcement from Gochuumon wa Usagi Desu ka??, and a surprise Tony Taka gal. [UPDATE] with an absolutely STUNNING Gwendolyn, along with Asuna and a few other cuties. [via Aquamarine’s Twitter]

  • Ahh, Alter. I have almost entirely sworn off buying figures, but when I am tempted it’s Alter at least 50% of the time. Something about them just really gets me in my figure-loving soul. And this event is no exception! While they only had a few goodies on hand, they were all absolutely gorgeous: from their stunning new Gwendolyn to the unbearably adorable Anzu Futaba, Alter still has it going on. Of course there were no big surprises. We have their usual go-to franchises: Fate (this time it’s a casual Lancer), IDOLM@STER, Love Live! (I never stop wanting these girls, sigh), Free!, and Tales of. Plachta from Atelier Sophie was definitely a nice surprise, as I didn’t expect her to turn out so beautifully based on the sculpt. [UPDATE] Added some lovely bonus pictures from Hobby Maniax [via Dengeki & AmiAmi]

  • 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! When it comes to video games, we’ve got a lot between Crow from Gravity Daze 2, Ulala from Space Channel 5, Gwendolyn from Odin Sphere, Bloodborne and Dark Souls III, Ludens (who knows if this is even a game, but whatever), Kusanagi Kyo and Yagami Iori from King of Fighters, and the painted Metroid Prime 3: Corruption Samus. Then we’ve got like the entire cast of Love Live! Sunshine!! with Matsuura Kanan, Kurosawa Dia, Watanabe You, Tsushima Yoshiko, Kunikida Hanamaru, Ohara Mari, and Kurosawa Ruby so that you can recreate the show yourself a la Robot Chicken. Then continuing on with the anime we’ve got Rem and Ram from Re:Zero aka the same sculpt twice with super minor differences, but everyone’ll only buy Rem since she actually had a storyline unlike Ram, Tanya Degurechaff from Saga of Tanya the Evil (because Japan still has a hard on for little girls dressed up as the enemy from WWI or WWII), Klaus and Leonardo from the new season of Kekkai Sensen, Yukari Akiyama from Girls Un Panzer, and Misako Akeno from High School Fleet. Then from KanColle we’ve got three new entries with Yuudachi, Tokitsukaze, and Fubuki. FREEing also had a few figmas on hand with their massive Iron Fossil from Dariusburst as well as the Bubblegum Crisis Moto Slave and a figma ex:ride of Ray from Kikou Souseki Mospeada. Then over in experimental land we’ve got the amazing sculptor Takayuki Takeya taking on Devilman. Oh, but that’s not all. No. We also got *the best figma of all time*. What is it might you ask? What could be better than stuff like The Thinker? Oh, I’ll tell you. It’s the E233 Series Train. Yes, that’s right, it’s a literal figma of a train. Now everybody better hop on the figma train hypetrain before it leaves the station because woo boy I hope they make more trains to keep on with the ridiculous factor of having a figma train.

  • Max Factory plays it a bit more coy than their sister company GSC. Sure, some of their teasers are clear and concise, but they also give us near-unidentifiable pixellated blogs. What a tease! This year there’s a good mix. Some are so obvious: figmas Gwendolyn, the Hunter from Bloodbourne, Crow from Gravity Daze 2, Yukari from Girls und Panzer, scales of Murakumo from KanColle and Urashima Kotetsu from Touken Ranbu. But what about the blobs? Well, one set is clearly Rem & Ram (scaled, it appears!), and another is… a big ‘ol mess of I don’t know. Any ideas? We also know that they will have a figma of Leonard Watch on display! [via the figma blog]

  • Flare is a company with a ton of potential: they make beautiful figures with some unique concepts. But their prices are so fucking high, like old Yamato, that I always kind of shy away from them. Their WonFest lineup is going to make that pretty hard, though. They had some beautiful sculpts out: the dynamic Samurai from 7th Dragon, the super-cute Noah, Halloween Caster, the gorgeous Houkago no Pleiades duo, and the Ao no Kanata no Four Rhythm catgirls. Then there are so many announcements! Some of them, like the naked Gwendolyn, are a little weird. But then we have Saber Bride, 2 Tony Taka girls, Jeanne d’Arc, Akari from Aria, Oswald from Odin Sphere, and Taiga Kougami from King of Prism. [via figsoku]

  • Usually Alter saves their A-game for MegaHobby. Let’s be honest, their Wonder Festival displays tend to leave one lacking. But not this year, oh no. Apparently they caught on to how much I whine about it and were like ‘HEY CHECK OUT ALL THIS AMAZING SHIT, what now???’ Now, Alter, I spend all of my money on your shit. I mean oh my god. First off, we’re getting a brand-new Gwendolyn! What a surprise. I thought the new Velvet was to go with old Gwen & Mercedes, but I guessed wrong (does this mean we get a new Mercedes too??). Then we have the gayest figure on earth from Free–they’re finally doing dual figures with boys! Speaking of Altair, there are sooo many boys: mostly from Ensemble Stars! and Uta no☆Prince-sama♪ . We’ve got tons of IDOLM@STER and Love Live!, including the Ranko to end all Rankos. The WINGS. Then we have so very many announcements. Three Fate/Grand Order girls: Lancer, Saber Alter, and Jeanne d’Arc. We”ll be getting more IM@S (of course), a new Lala, and a figure of Rem from Re:Zero, who seems quite popular this year.

  • Phat! Company has quickly gone from a company that I considered just okay to one of my favorites. Probably because of their amazing IDOLM@STER line, which has been… perfect. And of course there were many IM@S girls at the event! The stunning Ami & Mami Futami duo is sculpted, Minami Nitta is painted along with Azusa Miura, and we have announcements for Anzu Futaba and Kirari Moroboshi! The Granblue Fantasy girls were also stunning: Io and Yueru are painted and idol Gita is sculpted. That would be enough to satisfy me, but there’s more! They have an adorable Shimakaze sculpt along with announcements for Shiratsuyu & Murasame. Surprisingly, there’s a sculpt for Jibril from No Game No Life which I am DYING over. Check them out and more (like the new Medicchu & Parfom) in the gallery! [via Phat’s Twitter]

  • Wonder Festival is always full of surprises, and this certainly comes as a shock! I mean, we are getting the remastered Odin Sphere, but I certainly didn’t expect this to happen. Max Factory will be making Gwendolyn in figma format! I’d greatly prefer a Gwen scale from them but beggars can’t be choosers. And also I’m pretty sure we’ll have at least one new figure of her in the coming year. [via
