Wonder Festival 2016 Summer: Game Garage Kits (part 2)

Man, there really are a lot of Fate/Grand Order and Gran Blue Fantasy kits, and I'm sure the numbers will only rise! but for me, the two most standout figures would be the one of the Fei Yen knight from Virtual On and her large sword as wel...

Wonder Festival 2016 Summer: Anime Garage Kits (part 4)

And now, we have reached the last stretch of the garage kit coverage for Wonder Festival Summer 2016!  We end the Anime kit roundup with a better look at the Love Live! kits as well as a number of magical girls in the form of Precure k...

Wonder Festival 2016 Summer: Misc Garage Kits (part 2)

I have to admit that I'm not the biggest fan of the Japanese Kaiju movies but even I have to put my hands up and say that this Godzilla skeleton figure is pretty damn cool! Still, it adds to the weirdness that is the miscellaneous gallery a...

Wonder Festival 2016 Summer: KanColle Garage Kits (part 2)

If nothing else, it's good to see the overall quality of KanColle kits to have improved over recent events. Before, it was only really the abyssal fleet figures which truly impressed but now, we have quite a few kits of the ship girls incre...

Wonder Festival 2016 Summer: Anime Garage Kits (part 3)

For such a popular anime, you would think that One-Punch man would get more figures than it has. Well, the big companies have given us a few Tatsumakis and a couple of Geonas but that's about it. But at least we got one figure of Saitama in...

Wonder Festival 2016 Summer: Misc Garage Kits (part 1)

And here's the first of our miscellaneous kit gallery. As usual, these kits are those which I was unable to identify, are original designs or simply come from a title which doesn't really fit the previous categories.  The steampunk Ali...

Wonder Festival 2016 Summer: KaColle Garage Kits (part 1)

KanColle still continues its iron grip on the dealer section of Wonder Festival but at least its dominance isn't quite on the level as previous events, where it was actually painful to sift through. Kashima is also a popular pick these days...

Wonder Festival 2016 Summer: Anime Garage Kits (part 2)

Back when I was a fledgling garage kit painter, one maker who always impressed me with his great works was Vispo. Initially, the most famous kits were those of the Evangelion Girls with racing motorbikes. Eventually, 3 were made for Asuka a...

Wonder Festival 2016 Summer: Video Game Garage Kits (part 1)

Next up, we have the first batch of video game garage kits and the first thing one will probably notice is the number of Fate/Grand Order and Gran Blue Fantasy kits. Rather unsurprisingly, the most popular games get the largest number of ki...

Wonder Festival 2016 Summer: Anime Garage Kits (part 1)

And, after a long haul, we've reached the dealer floor for Wonder Festival. As usual, I've split up the kits into some rough categories and we start with the first lot of anime garage kits! Love Live! seems to have had a boost in popularity...

Wonder Festival Winter 2016: Anime Garage Kits (Part 4)

And now we have reached the final garage kit gallery for this Wonder Festival and we've saved some pretty damn cool kits such as the hyper detailed Titan busts from Shingeki no Kyojin and a pretty cool Ushio & Tora kit. To be fair, the ...

Wonder Festival Winter 2016: Video Game Garage Kits (Part 2)

And we've reached the last of the video game kits for this Wonder Festival. And I can't stop staring at that great figure of Faintear from Triggerheart Exelica. Man, I loved that shmup! It's one of the few reasons I still start up my Xbox 3...

Wonder Festival Winter 2016: Misc Garage Kits (Part 3)

And here we are with the third misc garage kit gallery. I have to say that this event hasn't really given us many "out there" garage kits like previous ones. Sure, there was the fish skeletons and a few oddities here and there but I would s...

Wonder Festival Winter 2016: KanColle Garage Kits (Part 2)

And we're done again for KanColle for another Wonder Festival.  I don't really have much to add to this gallery, not being a KanColle fan, but more Atago and Takao is always good! I do have to wonder why it feels like garage kit makers...

Wonder Festival Winter 2016: Vocaloid Garage Kits

Vocaloids may no longer be the big draw for many garage kit makers but there is still a steady flow of new Vocaloid kits on display at Wonder Festival. Of course, Miku makes the bulk of kits but there are a few other Vocaloids present this ...

Wonder Festival Winter 2016: Anime Garage Kits (Part 3)

And now we reach the third gallery of anime garage kits and this one is a bit of a doozy. I mean, check out those weird evangelion kits and the zombie Stocking from Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt! Pretty messed up! We also get another g...

Wonder Festival Winter 2016: Misc Garage Kits (Part 2)

We still have quite a few more misc garage kits to go through so here we go! In a bit of a surprise, we get some custom costumes for dolls at Wonder Festival. Traditionally, we never really saw dolls at WF as they usually kept to their own ...

Wonder Festival Winter 2016: KanColle Garage Kits (Part 1)

While nowhere near as dominant as in previous events, KanColle still has a lot of garage kits being made of their characters so I don't think we can expect a KanColle free Wonder Festival for quite some time... Oh well, at least some of the...

Wonder Festival Winter 2016: Misc Garage Kits (Part 1)

And next, we have the kits which I was unable to categorise, either because I was unable to recognise the series, it is an original work or it was just too plain weird to fit into one of the other categories... And boy, was there some weird...

Wonder Festival Winter 2016: Game Garage Kits (Part 1)

Time to look into the video game garage kits now and the Idolm@ster is taking the whole thing by storm. No doubt buoyed by the recent anime series, the members of the Cinderella project have been getting a lot of exposure this time around, ...

Wonder Festival Winter 2016: Anime Garage Kits (Part 1)

And here we go! A bit later than usual but lets dive into the contents of the dealer floor at this years winter Wonder Festival! On the plus side, there's quite a good balance from various shows this time around and while KanColle still has...

Wonder Festival 2015 Summer: Misc Garage Kits (part 3)

That's it, I'm done. If you want an image which pretty much explains what kind of weirdness to expect from these kinds of galleries, I think the banner image pretty much sums it up. We can safely ignore the cool (and borderline NSFW) loli c...

Wonder Festival 2015 Summer: Anime Garage Kits (part 4)

We're just about ready to wrap up the garage kit coverage for this years summer Wonder Festival and for our penultimate gallery, we're taking a look at the last few anime garage kits from the dealer floor. There's an appearance from Space D...

Wonder Festival 2015 Summer: Video Game Garage Kits (part 2)

Here's our second and last gallery for the video game garage kits for this Wonder Festival and we have a fair bit of retro goodness to share! From the Flameman from Megaman, to the evil minion from the Pop'n Twinbee series and Nights from N...

Wonder Festival 2015 Summer: Misc Garage Kits (part 2)

For our second gallery of misc garage kits, we have a... rather normal collection if we have to be honest. Most are likely to be based from a video game series but sadly, my knowledge doesn't stretch far enough to name them all. Others are ...

Wonder Festival 2015 Summer: Anime Garage Kits (part 3)

And here we are, at the third anime garage kit gallery and we have a few older anime shows added to the mix. We have ourselves a Boogiepop Phantom kit and also one of Adette from Overman King Gainer! Remember that show? I mean, apart from t...

Wonder Festival 2015 Summer: Anime Garage Kits (part 2)

And now, we get to part 2 of our collection of anime garage kits and it's good to see ship girls not from KanColle getting some love still with kits of Takao (best ship) and Kongou from Aoki Hagane no Arpeggio present. Chiyo-chan from Gekka...

Wonder Festival 2015 Summer: Misc Garage Kits (part 1)

Next up, we have the first gallery of kits which either didn't fit into one of the previous categories, were completely original designs or I simply didn't know where they came from! These galleries often prove to be popular as they often c...

Wonder Festival 2015 Summer: Anime Garage Kits (part 1)

Now that coverage of Wonder Festival has calmed down a little, we have some time to look at the dealer floor to see what garage kit makers have brought to the event. The good news is that there was no depressingly large domination by KanKol...

Wonder Festival 2015 Winter: Misc Garage Kits (part 2)

And so, as tradition demands, we end our coverage of the garage kits at wonder festival with our final miscellaneous gallery. And boy, are there some weird things in this one! Before we begin, I should warn you that some of the kits skirt N...

Wonder Festival 2015 Winter: Anime Garage Kits (part 5)

We've saved the best for last folks... Well, the best of the new stuff anyway and top of that list for me would be the Mari on Eva bike by Vispo! He's done a few Rei and Asuka kits before and they've been very well received but this is the ...

Wonder Festival 2015 Winter: Video Game Garage Kits (part2)

Moving on, we come to our second gallery of video game garage kits, featuring a rather eclectic mix of characters along with a load of Idolm@ster ones! The Nekomata kit from the first DLC of Muramasa: The Demon Blade really surprised me and...

Wonder Festival 2015 Winter: Anime Garage Kits (part 4)

Hands down, Ceclia was my favourite kit at this Wonder Festival, sadly she's not new! but that doesn't stop her from being great! There were also some nods to classic anime like Space runaway Ideon and Tetsujin 28 but I was probably most su...

Wonder Festival 2015 Winter: Vocaloid Garage Kits

Despite not being as popular as the line once was, Miku is still able to generate a number of new kits still. However, it does seem that the other vocaloids have not been able to keep their popularity up. I doubt that Miku will be going any...

Wonder Festival 2015 Winter: Anime Garage Kits (part 3)

We're about half way through our GK coverage for this wonder festival so it's time to dive into more anime garage kits! I have to admit that I was surprised to see a barakamon kit not to mention an ore, twintail ni narimasu kit of tail red!...

Wonder Festival 2015 Winter: KanColle Garage Kits (part 2)

If you're a fan of KanColle, then soak it up! If you're not, hang in there! This is the last gallery! Without a doubt KanColle dominated the dealer floor at this wonder festival in a way other titles have not managed since... Vocaloids a fe...

Wonder Festival 2015 Winter: Misc Garage Kits (part 1)

And now we come to the first gallery of the kits which are either weird, don't fit into any other category or I simply could not identify (or any combination of the above). This gallery has a slight musical lean to it in the for form of kit...
