Touhou Project Archive

As collectors, our focus for Wonder Festival is obviously on the things that you can, you know, actually buy. But at the event, purchasable PVC figures are outnumbered pretty substantially by garage kits. We of course brought you our usual before-event roundup, but it’s time to take a look at all the goodies that were out and about that day!
The quality ranges from amazing to god-awful, so we tried to bring you the cream of the crop. Though I will admit, quite a few in this gallery are just here because of how odd they are. Shirtless Gilgamesh? Girl getting (happily) eaten by a shark? Cat on a motorcycle? Check ’em out and tons more below the jump!

Like usual, ques Q’s booth at Wonder Festival was like 80% KanColle and Touhou Project. Yet they put out figures from both those series so slowly! It’s a conspiracy to drive us insane, I tell you. At least this year they had some cool KanColle girls who we don’t usually see, like Northern Princess (squee!), Kashima, Ro 5oo, and Naka. And they didn’t announce any more, thank the lord.
On the Touhou front they announced two new Sakuya Izayoi and a new Remilia Scarlet. Two of my faves! Sadly, Love Bomber Sonico is still unpainted, as is Lancer and the Raita bunny girls. They did have quite a few announcements, of course: they’ll be doing Samurai from 7th Dragon in a maid outfit (wut), and Saber from Fate/Grand Order. Pink-haired Saber with a demon tail, I can get behind this.

It’s that time again! Time to look at a few of the garage kits that will be on display and for sale at Wonder Festival. Of course for most of us this is just to drool over, but as always if you are attending the event each picture is labeled with the circle & character name! Also, I am insanely jealous of you.
The trends this year are basically what you would expect. Tons of Re:Zero (and by that I mean tons of Rem & Ram, who cares about the other characters!), idol shows out in force, and quite a bit of Granblue Fantasy. Some old trends seem to be dying (there’s very little of Miku & Sonico compared to previous years). And, surprisingly, Cartoon Network is represented quite a bit. Check them all out in the gallery below, and let us know what you’d like to see as PVC!

We are about a week away from the two big winter events, Toy Fair & Winter Wonder Festival. But before then, a little taste of that event-reveal excitement! Yes, it’s time for ~yet another prize fair.~ I do love prize figures, but I had to cut myself off because man do those boxes add up into a wall really quickly.
This time around, we have of course all the usuals: Dragon Ball Z (I need that Piccolo), Fate/Stay Night, IDOLM@STER, Sword Art Online, Bakemonogatari, Evangelion, Disney, Kantai Collection, et cetera. Everything from cute to creepy (can we stop with the big-head Disney Princesses now?). There are some newcomers on the scene too, like Touhou Project and BLAME! The star for me is that Anzu Futaba in the header: that sculpt does NOT look like a prize figure!

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.

Ques Q doesn’t seem to put out figures that often anymore… but I guess they plan on changing that because they had a LOT at Wonder Festival. So let’s just dive right in! We’ve got lots and lots of Kantai Collection of course, and tons of Touhou Project–but most importantly, that evil Remilia LIVES! Finally, progress! There’s a cute sculpt from Working!!, and adorable Alice Cartelet, finally the Rocket Sonico, Rory Mercury, and Arnval Mk.2 who is doing something very strange to her boobs.
But that’s not the shocker. There’s SO MANY ANNOUNCEMENTS. Bunny Selvaria, bunny Misae Suzuhara, Miho & Darjeeling from Girls und Panzer, Northern Princess, swimsuit Cyan, Prinz Eugen, Teruzuki, Fate/Grand Order Lancer… how are they planning on making so many??

Like every year, there are too many Nendoroids. We showed you some: Sakura, Batman & Supes, Deadpool, Meta Knight, Zelda, Hotaru, and of course my boo Kylo. But there’s more. So much more, guys, I wanna cry whenever I look at this gallery. It’s TOO MANY. But, you know, they’re all cute.
We’ve got more Kantai Collection Nendos than anyone needs, lots of boys from Orange Rouge including, of course, Touken Ranbu out the butt, the adorable Ainz from Overlord, Nendoroid Co:de outfits for Miku Hatsune, Fire Emblem, Mega Man, and SO MUCH MORE. Because there are so many, we have both the full gallery after the jump AND a full list of everyone (compiled by Stephen, because you all know I am too lazy for that).

Good Smile Company’s Touhou Project Nendoroid line was all the rage when it started… years and years ago. We awaited the next release anxiously, and though they were all exclusives we scrambled for them anyway. It kind of dropped off a couple years ago, and while we still do get releases (slowly) it just doesn’t have that spark. But while I’ve basically forgotten about the line as a whole, I’m excited for Koishi: she is one of my favorite girls, and I think they translated her elaborate design really well to Nendo form.
The colors are, of course, the star here: gorgeous bright pastels with some really nice shading. Her intricate design may be the main focus but of course we have extras! She comes with great faces (regular, winking, and smiling) and bonus heart hands. So not a lot, but enough cute goodies for me to be satisfied. Like all Touhou merch she is exclusive: you have lots of options if you are in Japan, but most of us will have to go through the GSC shop. Orders open tonight!
