Ecchi
Jul 31
// Chris Seto
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 lar...

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 fo...

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


Man in suit!!
Jul 31
// Chris Seto
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 miscella...

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


Steady as she goes!
Jul 31
// Chris Seto
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 s...

Enter Enter Mission!
Jul 31
// Chris Seto
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 figur...

Mystery Box
Jul 31
// Chris Seto
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.  Th...

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


Queen of my Castle
Jul 31
// Chris Seto
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 ...

Welcome back Vispo!
Jul 30
// Chris Seto
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 m...

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


All hail the mobage!
Jul 30
// Chris Seto
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 large...

Lovin' and Live-in'
Jul 30
// Chris Seto
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 boos...

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


One more for the road!
Feb 13
// Chris Seto
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. T...

It's Faintear!! Faintear!!!
Feb 13
// Chris Seto
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 sta...

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


The home stretch!
Feb 13
// Chris Seto
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 ther...

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


Thar she goes!
Feb 13
// Chris Seto
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 ga...

Wonder Festival Winter 2016: Vocaloid Garage Kits


Keep on trucking
Feb 13
// Chris Seto
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 Vocaloid...

Half way there!
Feb 13
// Chris Seto
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 als...

Down the rabbit hole we go!
Feb 12

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 kep...

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


The beast isn't quite dead yet!
Feb 12
// Chris Seto
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 le...

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


And now the weirdness sets in!
Feb 11
// Chris Seto
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 t...

Are you ready? I'm Lady!

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 thi...

Treasure Festa in Ariake 14: Lots of anime garage kits!! (part 3)


Here we go!
Dec 13
// Chris Seto
Once more into the fray!  It's easy to forget that being a dealer at events like Treasure Festa doesn't mean that you deal in just garage kits. Especially at events like this and Hobby Round from Volks, we also get to se...

And here we go with our second gallery of Garage kits from Treasure Festa in Ariake 14! A few recognizable names in this gallery. Grizzry Panda shows up with a new kit of Shinobu from the Monogatari series and we get a look a...

It's a good thing that the far east doesn't really celebrate Christmas like we do over in the west! Otherwise, one would think that holding an event like Treasure Festa so close to Christmas would be close to suicide for the ...

Aug 02

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 borderli...

Decidedly normal

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 a...

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-...
