    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: Good Smile Company

    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!

    Kantai Collection Invades Winter Wonder Festival 2015

    The kits on display & for sale at Wonder Festival usually reflect bigger trends in the PVC market. So, of course, there’s a veritable shipload of Kantai Collection girls at this Winter Wonder Festival. Like, a lot. I don’t know if I’ve ever seen this many kits for one show/game, even when everyone was popping out Madoka figures. It’s kind of overwhelming–so we’ve separated them out of the garage kit roundup so they can have their own cluster-ship post.

    There’s a little something for everyone here: chibi Wo-Class, amazingly tacky Wo-Class, normal Wo-Class. And, you know, some figures that aren’t Wo-Class. I’m really happy to see the bad girls getting more attention, like the adorable Northern Princess! So cute. And of course there are tons of good girls, including not nearly as many Shimakazes as I expected. Check them all out in the gallery!
