Wonder Festival 2014 Summer: A-Toys

A-Toys didn't seem to have much at WonFes, but holy crap did they have something awesome: the Female Titan! The skinless beauty has her dukes up, and would look great next to Sentinel's Rogue Titan figure (which I really hope is in the same scale). They also had an unpainted prototype of Maou from Maoyuu Maou Yuusha. Her cleavage game is as strong as ever!

Wonder Festival 2014 Summer: Vocaloid Garage Kits

The Volcaloid kits may not play second fiddle to the sheer numer of KanColle kits but Miku is still popular enough to draw enough kits to make a gallery. Having said that... DAT MEIKO!!! I know a few people who would be happy...
