    Summer WonFest 2016: Nendoroids

    Sometimes I feel like Wonder Festival should change its name to Nendoroid Festival. We’ve already seen a TON so far tonight: all the boys from Orange Rouge, Kantai Collection, IDOLM@STER, the Li announcement, and the new Link. But there are over 35 more to come. So let’s get right to it! We’ve got a Fate/Stay Night triple threat (Shielder, Caster, & Lancer), MetaKnight, Koutetsujou no Kabaneri, Macross Delta, Mazinger Z, Miku Hatsune, Mahou Tsukai no Yome, Biohazard, Boku no Hero Academia, High School Fleet, Touhou Project, Rockman.exe, Fire Emblem, Deadpool, Suicide Squad, Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku o!, The King of Fighters (Mai, what a surprise!), Thunderbolt Fantasy, Madoka Magica, Girls und Panzer, Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata, and so much more.

    We also have the results of the Nendoroid request poll, which is why we got Li and Kiso. We’ll also be getting Edward Elric, Erwin Smith, and (finally) Holo!

    Ques Q Announces A New Reimu Hakurei

    It has been many, many years, but my long-awaited badass Remilia is finally up for order. Such a long wait, and so so worth it at the end. So what’s ques Q to do now that my grail is finally attainable? Make some other badass ladies. Hopefully not for, like, 4 years though. I want this Reimu before 2019.

    This is the “Koumajou Densetsu ver” (same as Remilia) and it looks, well, pretty awesome. I’d like a more dynamic pose, but all that swirling clothing and hair should look cool regardless. I wonder if we’ll get more in the line? I’d love so many of the Touhou girls in this badass style.

    Treasure Festa in Ariake 13: Garage Kits

    I have such mixed feelings about garage kits. On one hand, it’s awesome to see all the creativity that happens when sculptors aren’t restricted by licensing agreements and the somewhat limited poses you can do with PVC. On the other hand, I can’t have them. So, you know, it’s nice to window shop but holy crap do I want motorcycle Mari so bad.

    This weekend there was yet another Treasure Festa–only 13, it seems like there are a million more doesn’t it? We always see some amazing garage kits at these events, possibly even more than Wonder Festival since it’s really a gk-only convention, and this year was no exception. The wares definitely reflect current figure trends… to a point. There was almost no KanColle to be seen, but a whole lot of Sailor Moon, Super Sonico, and Vocaloids. We’ve handpicked the best of the bunch, so check them all out in the gallery!
