    Summer WonFest 2017: Phat! Company

    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!

    Summer WonFest 2017: Amakuni

    Every time I see an Amakuni figure I love, I die a little inside because they are all exclusives. Their booth this year is truly suffering because I want almost all of it. Guys, my heart. I’m dying.

    Seven Heavenly Virtues Michael is finally painted, and soooo pretty, as are quite a few of their KanColle girls. We also have a sculpt for Iowa which has some pretty impressively floating boobs.

    There were also some crazy surprises, like Jaden from Yu-Gi-Oh GX (the hell) and Mai from King of Fighters! Amakuni has really been killing it lately.

    Summer WonFest 2017: Aquamarine

    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.
