    Summer WonFest 2017: Garage Kit Roundup

    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.

    MegaHouse’s Sugary Sweet Sailor Moon Is Painted

    I was very excited when MegaHouse showed off their newest Sailor Moon sculpt at Wonder Festival. I really love the whole girls-in-food-cups thing, it’s just so freaking cute, and combine that with Sailor Moon? Um, yes please. The sculpt really looks amazing.

    Bandai Announces Sailor Moon Crystal S.H.Figuarts

    Bandai has already given us quite a few poseable figures of Sailor Moon: the original, a repaint, Super Sailor Moon, and the (possibly cancelled) Moon R version.

    Sailor Venus Crystal Gets A Figuarts ZERO

    Sailor Moon is the show that got me into anime, so of course it holds a special place in my heart. Yet I can’t be anything but bitter about Bandai’s Sailor Moon Crystal Figuarts ZERO. Sailor Moon had terrible quality control and was overpriced, but it’s worse with the other senshi: they’re all exclusive.

    Since then we’ve gotten lovely figures of Mars and Mercury that you need to pay an arm and a leg for, along with painted Jupiter.
