On October 20, 2012, ASCII Media Works celebrated the 20th Anniversary of the Dengeki brand with a large festival attended by many vendors. Figure manufacturers were in attendance including Good Smile Company, Bandai, Volks, Wave Corporation and many others.
There were quite a few surprises and note worthy revealings including Bandai's Shizuo and Izaya from Durarara!!, Max Factory's figma Yuno from Hidamari Sketch x Honeycomb, Volks' Asuna Dollfie Dream from Sword Art Online, several new Beach Queens by Wave Corporation, Griffon Enterprises' next Haganai Monster Hunter, and plenty of prize figures. Check out the all that was shown at the big event for Dengeki below.
Surprisingly quite a bit though MegaHouse, ALTER, and Kotobukiya were absent from the event. I guess we'll have to wait until the next MegaHobby Expo to hear from two of those companies which should be coming up next month.
