Treasure Festa in Ariake 11: Griffon - Nanoricchi gallery


Chibi dolls a plenty
May 08
// Natalie Kipper
Griffon Enterprises' Nanoricchi line is fairly new but the chibi figures were still a major presence at Japan's Treasure Festa in Ariake 11. The majority of the figures were revealed back at Wonder Festival 2014 Winter but th...

Tiki is ready to make a splash at Treasure Festa


Stepping up the game

Not to be outdone by Vertex and their offering, a GK circle by the name of MadHands has shown off their rendition of you companion fairy from Dragon's Crown in time for Treasure Festa in Ariake 10, which occurs just before Ch...

Custom garage kit
Masterful garage kit crafter Grizzry Panda is at it again, teasing us with a new pair of Madoka cuties set to be shown off at December's Treasure Festa. Featuring who else but Madoka herself and lovely Homura, it seems like G...

Treasure Festa in Ariake 9: Mana Mode, Little Pink Summer


Sometimes, different is better
May 07
// Brian Szabelski
More Treasure Festa coverage? Sure! Let's take a look at two more kit makers with some popular characters. Mana Mode brought two different Asukas with them, one of her in her plugsuit and the other featuring her jamming out w...

[NSFW] Treasure Festa in Ariake 9: Mouse Unit


Someone's ready for summer, aren't they?
May 07
// Brian Szabelski
An old friend returned at Treasure Festa from the folks at Mouse Unit, the bikini-clad Zettai Tora. All colored up, she probably needs to invest in a bigger swimsuit, but she looks pretty damn good regardless. Her hat's even ...

Treasure Festa in Ariake 9: 83 C, kuni20xx, and EBO


Great work from lesser-known names
May 06
// Brian Szabelski
Treasure Festa's real gems can often be found at some of the smaller maker's booths, and this year provided no such difference. I'm highlighting three of them in this post: From 83 C, we have an old kit of theirs of Yagami H...

Treasure Festa in Ariake 9: Grizzry Panda


Touhou ladies, Isshiki Akane make their big debuts
May 06
// Brian Szabelski
Grizzry Panda's Treasure Festa offerings brought us a look at his Touhou race queen kits of Reimu and Marisa. They're unpainted, of course, but looking pretty good. Then there's the Isshiki Akane garage kit, which we saw prev...

Treasure Festa in Ariake 9: Ques Q


Lots of Touhou Project stuff
May 06
// Tianxiao Ma
Ques Q seems to love Touhou Project figures, but they do have their stylistic differences with Griffon. I enjoy seeing the odd Touhou figure every once in a while thanks to their whacky and elaborate character designs. The li...

[NSFW] Treasure Festa in Ariake 9: Orca Toys


Saucy offerings from a new maker
May 05
// Tianxiao Ma
Orca Toys appears to be a new name in the business, but their stuff at Treasure Festa establishes them as leaning toward the pervy side. Not all of the figures are explicit but some can cast off while others just have lewd po...

Treasure Festa in Ariake 9: Atelier Hiro and Atomic-Bom


Miss, I think you need some pants before you ride that bike
May 05
// Brian Szabelski
Spotted at Treasure Festa in Ariake 9 were Atelier Hiro's gorgeous Miku kits, along with his Girls und Panzer pieces. The two Mikus look particularly amazing; look at the detail on her hair! I especially like the one with the...

Treasure Festa in Ariake 9: Amie-Grand


That Asuka figure is still beautiful
May 05
// Tianxiao Ma
Amie-Grand had some nice figures at Treasure Festa with my personal favorite being Asuka. I like the concept, with her chilling on a really cool NERV-themed base. You can also see a polystone 1/6-scale Chuubou Sonken from Ikk...

Treasure Festa in Ariake 9: Girls und Panzer


Moe with armor appeal
May 05
// Andres Cerrato
For every one of these events, there's always the glut of characters flooding the tables. Miku, Saber, Tamaki, Nanoha, etc. It just goes on and on. While those girls are here too, I've noticed that one new show has begun to d...

Treasure Festa in Ariake 9: Liquid Stone


Pint-sized Madoka poseables
May 05
// Brian Szabelski
Liquid Stone isn't a new company by any means, but they did bring something I hadn't seen previously to Treasure Festa. What you see above is a series of the five Madoka girls, each coming with a variety of appropriate a...

Treasure Festa in Ariake 9: T's system


Girls with swords and girls in swimsuits
May 05
// Brian Szabelski
At Treasure Festa in Ariake 9, we got a glimpse at T's system's latest works. Those happen to include a healthy dose of girls in swimsuits, including Sword Art Online's Silica and Asuna; Kagamine Rin; and Sena and Yoroza from...

Treasure Festa in Ariake 9: Moon Writer


Moon Writer shows why figures are posed the way they are
May 05
// Andres Cerrato
It's no secret that there are figures posed in very, very odd ways. It's even more odd to explain it to family members. They're provocative without any semblance of reality. "Why is her back like that?" "She's going to topple...

Treasure Festa in Ariake 9: Gift chooses its Saber Bride


Sculpted by Kagutsuchino
May 05
// Andres Cerrato
To my disappointment, Gift has held on to making more plushes than PVC. When they do get to making a PVC, it's usually a Saber. I'm not in anyway a fan of Fate, but I love this marriage of the two entities. It's fitting then ...

Treasure Festa in Ariake 9: Griffon


Tons of announcements here!
May 05
// Natalie Kipper
Some big news came out of the Griffon booth at Treasure Festa in Ariake 9. The biggest of which, at least for anime fans who like to wax nostalgic, is the announcement of two Silent Möbius figures, one of Katsumi in a sw...

Treasure Festa in Ariake 9: Mugenkyou


Persona, Girls und Panzer, and a cosplaying Soniko
May 05
// Natalie Kipper
It is time for Treasure Festa in Ariake 9 and Mugenkyou is getting the party starting right. The company had figures from Persona 4 Arena, Girls und Panzer, and what I believe to be Soniko cosplaying as a rather busty Ma...

Treasure Festa in Ariake 8: One more gallery!


Encore! Encore!! ENCORE!!
Dec 20
// Chris Seto
OK, so I lied. Here's the last gallery for Treasure Festa! Sadly, with all that's going on it's easy to miss quite a few kits out there so here's a selection of kits which we missed from our main coverage. The gallery is a mi...

Treasure Festa in Ariake 8: Misc Garage Kits (Part 3)


Out with a bang!
Dec 19
// Chris Seto
And here we are, at the end of the line with our last gallery of misc garage kits! We have some Berserk, some Sharks, and a little WTF to finish things off! I'm fairly certain that a few of the figures are from Touhou but sin...

Once more, unto the breach!
Dec 19

And now onto the final stretch with the last few galleries from Treasure Festa in Ariake 8! Time to round up the anime kits now, and it's all about Madoka Magica! Admit it, you smiled when you saw the chibi magical girls do t...

Treasure Festa in Ariake 8: Vocaloid garage kits


Actually... Just Miku. lots and lots of Hatsune Miku.
Dec 19
// Chris Seto
Perhaps I should just call this the Hatsune Miku gallery. With every event, the number of Miku kits increases while we see less and less of the other vocaloids. And this time, they're relegated to side acts! Poor Luka... Admi...

Treasure Festa in Ariake 8: Misc Garage Kits (Part 2)


Back to more familiar ideas!
Dec 19
// Chris Seto
Time to delve back into the misc kits again, but fewer surprises this time. At least, no unpleasant ones. For me, the stand out figure would be the one of the lady reading a book on her chair. It's based off a light novel but...

Treasure Festa in Ariake 8: Anime Garage Kits (part 2)


Time for the big guns!
Dec 19

Are you ready for more? Did nothing tickle your fancy in the last anime kit gallery? Well, lets see if we can change that, shall we? For the second anime kit gallery, Sword Art Online strikes out with kits for Kirito and Sili...

Treasure Festa in Ariake 8: Video Game Garage Kits


Gonna take you for a ride!
Dec 18
// Chris Seto
We have the video game kits next and we find the usual Touhou and love plus suspects lined up along with some rather interesting newbies in the mix. There are some new kits for the as-of-yet unreleased game Dragons Crown and ...

Treasure Festa in Ariake 8: Misc Garage Kits (Part 1)


WTF doesn't even begin to describe some of this stuff!
Dec 18
// Chris Seto
Next up, we're jumping into the kits which defied my ability to identify them. Either that or they don't really fit into the other categories. For example, we have a kit of Nanabe Madoka, the "official" OS-tan for Windows 7. ...

Better get in your favourite comfy chair. We're going in!
Dec 18

T's System weren't the only circles with stuff to show at Treasure Festa, of course. There were a number of other circles showing off their kits both old and new. Mostly old though but aside from some great works worth revisi...

Treasure Festa in Ariake 8: T's Systems Garage Kits


Larger than life
Dec 18
// Chris Seto
I'm not sure why, but T'S system seemed to have a much greater presence compared to the other GK circles. They also had a fair amount to show off, although much of it is not new but it's enough to split them off into their ow...

Treasure Festa in Ariake 8: Griffon Enterprises


Biggest dog in the yard!
Dec 18
// Chris Seto
Treasure Festa managed to sneak up on us this time around. Usually considered a smaller version of Wonder Festival, the larger Ariake event lacked the pomp for its buildup and it seems that the larger figure companies decided...

Treasure Festa in Ariake 7: Itacars, idols and live event


May 09

And now for something completely different. It may come as a bit of a surprise but Treasure Festa wasn't all just about garage kits and Griffon stuff. There was actually a section dedicated to Ita-cars and there were some bon...
