SDCC/WonFes Highlight Reel: The Scarecroodle edition

SDCC and WonFes may have been almost a month ago at this point, but many of its collectibles are still on our minds. Tian recently posted the top ten things he was looking forward to from these cons and, because I'm far more excitably (and exceedingly less orderly), my own highlights list is nowhere near that short. See many of my favorites after the jump.

Now that we've had a while to unpack the information assault from the Wonder Festival/SDCC tandem (both happened on the same weekend!), the Tomopop crew thought it would be a good idea to highlight some of our personal favorite things from both events.

It would take too long to cover everything I want, so it looks like a top 10 list is in order. Read on to see what tickled my fancy!

Wonder Festival 2014 Summer: Good Smile Company - miscellaneous

Continuing with Good Smile Company's (and associates) apparently near-infinite display at WonFes, we arrive at some Attack on Titan figures and a bunch of Sonicos. GSC usually does a decent job with Sonico figures in that I d...

Wonder Festival 2014 Summer: Revoltech - Iron Man

Kaiyodo had Iron Men past and future at their Wonder Festival booth ... well, Revoltech Iron Men. Kaiyodo's display featured not only their past Iron Man Revoltechs, but the upcoming Mark XXI figure in its golden splendor.&nb...

QuesQ's Summer WonFes display featured painted and unpainted prototypes of characters from Kancolle, Touhou Project, Busou Shinki, and more (which, in this instance, means I can't ID the other franchises).

The selection included a really neat unpainted Remilia Scarlet (see header) and cute painted Flandre Scarlet.

Be sure to check out the gallery for all of those characters I couldn't ID.

[NSFW] Wonder Festival 2014 Summer - figFix Shimakaze kicks off new line

Wonder Festival saw Max Factory unveil a brand new line for the company - fixFix. As you might be able to guess from the name, it's a spin on their omnipresent figma line, but without the signature poseability. Instead, these...

Wonder Festival 2014 Summer: Vertex

So yeah, Persona 3's Yukari is getting a figure. That makes me pretty happy. Thanks, Vertex! They had a few other figures on display at WonFes... some of which I'd like to forget. From the folks who brought you Super Sonico,...

Wonder Festival 2014 Summer: Pulchra

I'm limited by Tomopop's language policy, but please feel free to make all the male anatomy jokes you want about the display base for the Mikasa figure. Unintentional humor is often the best kind after all. Pulchra's WonFes d...

Wonder Festival 2014 Summer: Good Smile Company girls part 2

Partial nudity and figure collecting go hand in hand. If it makes you uncomfortable, you may want to avoid this gallery. However it makes me very comfortable, so I'll tell you a little about what's going on! These figures are...

Wonder Festival 2014 Summer: Art Spirits

Art Spirits likes to take things slow. After they first announced their To LOVEru Darkness Precious Collection Momo Belia Deviluke figure it took some seven months for them to finally reveal it. The same seems to be...

Wonder Festival 2014 Summer: Broccoli

Broccoli apparently doesn't care if a series isn't a super popular anime or blockbuster game. Just having a following is enough for them. Just take visual novel series Amairo Islenauts as an example, it's getting its fir...

Wonder Festival 2014 Summer: Volks

If there was any doubt about what Volks will be focusing for their future revenue streams before, this Wonder festival pretty much snuffed it out. after shuttering down the resin kit lines and slowing down news in general, it...
