    Summer WonFest 2017: Emontoys

    I don’t know about you guys, but I just love when existing companies suddenly change their name/merge into another company. It’s not at all confusing and annoying. Like you may peruse this gallery and think “wait, that Kamina is Myethos! Celestia Ludenberck from Danganronpa is Myethos!” Well not anymore! Emontoys is “distributing” for them, but they also seem to be making quite a few figures of their own. Life is a mystery.

    They had a ton of announcements out, like a super cute China Dress Sonico, Undine ver Asuna, basically the whole cast of Gochuumon wa Usagi Desu ka?? in various outfits, Aoba Suzukaze & Hifumi Takimoto from New Game!!, and so much more. But the most important thing? Definitely… SHIBA DRILL. These amazing and perfect gift-from-the-gods figures are literally just shibes with a variety of cones (traffic cones, ice cream cones, ect) on their heads.

    Wing is another one of those companies I am never quite sure is going to make it another festival. They make high quality stuff, but it seems like every year they have less and less. This time around, it’s only a handful of girls! We do have a beautiful sitting Sakura Saber, along with Sansei & Nisei Muramasa.

Between the <em>Dark Souls III</em> figma and Kasumi from <em>Dead or Alive</em>, 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 <em>PANDORA</em> figma, which should be great!</p> <p>Now in unexpected land we’ve got Arashi from <em>Game Center Arashi</em>, figma Kurogo, who just appears to be a random ninja, Goro Inogashira from <em>Kodoku No Gurume</em>, who just looks like a random middle aged Japanese guy in a suit, the wrestler Masahiro Chono, two figmas from <em>Arms Note</em>, and last, but not least, completely out of left field, a character from the 1977 movie <em>Village of Eight Gravestones</em>. 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.
