Another Wonder Festival has come and gone, leaving in its wake a metric ton of plastic that will soon be on the shelves of fans worldwide. It's a daunting event filled with the dreams of licensee and fan alike. One is hoping that their items generate some solid buzz so they'll be able to turn a decent profit, the other hoping that their favorite shows get represented in some form.

Ah hell, what am I saying? It's a trade show that shows us how much we'll be spending in several months time. It's wonderful and horrible, depending on your cash flow and how much you actually want to keep the heat on. We here at Tomopop have seen what Wonder Festival had to offer and we have some opinions that you need to know. What we liked, what we didn't like, it's all revealed here. Hit the jump to find out the best (and worst) of show!

Wonder Festival 2014 Winter: Kantai Collection Garage Kit

Lets just get this out of the way... Much like the corporate booths, Kantai Collection was EVERYWHERE on the dealer floor as well. The sheer number of kits based on the title easily dwarfed all the others by a considerable ma...

Wonder Festival 2014 Winter: Vocaloid garage kits

The Vocaloids may have been completely outdone in terms of popularity this time by the new kid on the block but that doesn't mean that they were abandoned completely. True, the number of vocaloid kits is considerably smaller ...

The second I saw all the designs of Dragon's Crown, I knew that they'd make fantastic figures. The ridiculously busty Sorceress, the gloriously thighed Amazon and the lithe Elf were seemingly made from the ground up to have f...

Wonder Festival 2014 Winter: G.E.M. Kakashi Anbu Ver.

For some reason, people used to really dig Anbu Kakashi. Maybe it was because of the stripped down design. Perhaps it was because it was part of mysterious character's even more mysterious past. Either way, I remember seeing ...
