Wonder Festival 2014 Summer: Nendoroid gallery

I know there's been a lot to take in this week with all the new announcements, but you've got room for some Nendoroids, right? They may be small, but the gallery is big! We got shots of stuff from major games like Super Mario...

Wonder Festival 2014 Summer: Kaiyodo's Mega Sofubi Advance

Did I just completely miss this whole arm of Kaiyodo's corpus? I'm always awed and amazed (sometimes not in the best way) by super-huge toys. In this case, I definitely got a good impression, though. As I turned the corner, I...

Wonder Festival 2014 Summer: MegaHouse's Tieria Erde

MegaHouse's Tieria is just one of those figures that demanded more pictures than just the one or two. I might be wrong, but I think this is the first time we're seeing it in color, too. I was a little bit dubious of this figu...

Wonder Festival 2014 Summer: Kotobukiya shows Black Butler

I was rather impressed with the Black Butler display over at Kotobukiya's booth at Wonder Festival featuring Ciel and Sebastian. They're still unpainted prototypes, but man do those figures look amazing, especially with the f...

Wonder Festival 2014 Summer: Kotobukiya SAO2 Sinon

I have to admit, watching the latest episode of Sword Art Online II I was pleasantly surprised to learn that Sinon isn't quite the emotionless ice queen she seemed to be up to now. She's actually has a rather normal and ...

Wonder Festival Summer 2014: Aniplex Plus

Though it hasn't been around long, Aniplex's exclusive plus line has already garnered an enviable reputation. It's partially due to smart pairings with established manufacturers such as Good Smile Company and partially due to...

SDCC 2014: Sideshow Collectibles - Hot Toys

Hot Toys' 1/6-scale figures were featured at Sideshow's booth as usual. This year they had a couple of vehicles, some figures from The Dark Knight and Avengers, and lots of Iron Men. So many Iron Men. You should know the drill by now: hit the jump to see my impressions and favorites.

Wonder Festival 2014 Summer: AmiAmi

Amiami recently made one of the most disruptive waves in figure releases after they finally got their Shinonono Houki out the door and into the hands of the buyers! A review will be forthcoming (spoilers - she's really good!)...

Wonder Festival 2014 Summer: Pierce the heavens again with this Gurren Lagann armoured helmet!!

The best thing about the dealer floor at Wonder Festival (other than seeing all those awesome garage kits of characters and series you wouldn't get from the big manufacturers) is finding some of the really "out there" stuff w...
