Griffon - Nanoricchi

Treasure Festa in Ariake 11: Griffon - Nanoricchi gallery

Chibi dolls a plenty
May 08
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... read
Game on!

Tiki is ready to make a splash at Treasure Festa

Stepping up the game
Dec 16
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... read
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... read feature

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

Sometimes, different is better
May 07
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... read

[NSFW] Treasure Festa in Ariake 9: Mouse Unit

Someone's ready for summer, aren't they?
May 07
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 ... read

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

Great work from lesser-known names
May 06
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... read

Treasure Festa in Ariake 9: Grizzry Panda

Touhou ladies, Isshiki Akane make their big debuts
May 06
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... read

Treasure Festa in Ariake 9: Ques Q

Lots of Touhou Project stuff
May 06
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... read

[NSFW] Treasure Festa in Ariake 9: Orca Toys

Saucy offerings from a new maker
May 05
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... read

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

Miss, I think you need some pants before you ride that bike
May 05
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... read

Treasure Festa in Ariake 9: Amie-Grand

That Asuka figure is still beautiful
May 05
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... read

Treasure Festa in Ariake 9: Girls und Panzer

Moe with armor appeal
May 05
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... read

Treasure Festa in Ariake 9: Liquid Stone

Pint-sized Madoka poseables
May 05
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... read

Treasure Festa in Ariake 9: T's system

Girls with swords and girls in swimsuits
May 05
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... read

Treasure Festa in Ariake 9: Moon Writer

Moon Writer shows why figures are posed the way they are
May 05
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... read

Treasure Festa in Ariake 9: Gift chooses its Saber Bride

Sculpted by Kagutsuchino
May 05
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 ... read

Treasure Festa in Ariake 9: Griffon

Tons of announcements here!
May 05
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... read

Treasure Festa in Ariake 9: Mugenkyou

Persona, Girls und Panzer, and a cosplaying Soniko
May 05
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... read

Treasure Festa in Ariake 8: One more gallery!

Encore! Encore!! ENCORE!!
Dec 20
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... read

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

Out with a bang!
Dec 19
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... read

Treasure Festa in Ariake 8: Anime Garage Kits (part 3)

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... read

Treasure Festa in Ariake 8: Vocaloid garage kits

Actually... Just Miku. lots and lots of Hatsune Miku.
Dec 19
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... read

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

Back to more familiar ideas!
Dec 19
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... read

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... read

Treasure Festa in Ariake 8: Video Game Garage Kits

Gonna take you for a ride!
Dec 18
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 ... read

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

WTF doesn't even begin to describe some of this stuff!
Dec 18
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. ... read

Treasure Festa in Ariake 8: Anime Garage Kits (part 1)

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... read

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

Larger than life
Dec 18
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... read

Treasure Festa in Ariake 8: Griffon Enterprises

Biggest dog in the yard!
Dec 18
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... read

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... read

Treasure Festa in Ariake 7: Anime Garage Kits (part 3)

May 09
And so we reach our final garage kit gallery from Treasure Festa, our third anime kit gallery and we saved some of the best for last. My personal favourite of the show is in this gallery and that would be Kanoe Yuuko from Tas... read

Treasure Festa in Ariake 7: Mecha Garage Kits

May 08
Next up we have the mecha gallery. Not too much to show this time around, except it seems that someone really likes medabots!! There were a few interesting originals which look like they wouldn't be out of place in a Shirow m... read

Almost done, I promise!! Here's the second part of our misc garage kit gallery, complete with Treasure Festa mascot! Now that I think about it, I can't believe that she's not a regular occurrence at these events! She's on all... read

You didn't think that we were done with the garage kit coverage yet, did you? Next up we have the Video Game garage kits and before we continue, yes, that is Azel from the legendary (on ebay at least) JRPG Panzer Dragoon Saga... read

Treasure Festa in Ariake 7: Misc Garage Kits (part 1)

Treasure Festa in Ariake 7: Anime Garage Kits (part 2)

And we're back with the second part of out anime garage kit coverage from Treasure Festa in Ariake 7. At this point, I think I can start pointing out the kits which are considered to be pretty old by garage kit standards. Whe... read

Treasure Festa in Ariake 7: Vocaloid Garage Kits

May 07
Where would we be without a dose of Hatsune Miku kits at a garage kit event? I'd probably say a happier place but I digress. At least we get a little Mieko and Luka to break things up!! There's also a poseable Append kit whic... read

Treasure Festa in Ariake 7: Anime Garage Kits (part 1)

Treasure Festa has always been considered to be a sort of "Wonder Festival lite." Often you'll see much of what is on display at the dealer tables as being the same as the ones seen at the previous Wonder Festival but this ti... read

Treasure Festa is going on right now in Japan and Griffon Enterprises has a ton of new items to show off. A large portion of the figures previewed were from the doujin series, Touhou Project, with characters like Remilia... read feature

Treasure Festa in Ariake 6: Misc Kits
