Wonder Festival 2014 Summer: Arcadia

Arcadia continues its transition from its old Yamato label and went to Wonder Festival with a bit of pretty much everything in their catalogue. Their Angel-Philia line of dolls were given a larger display than usual though th...

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: 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: Good Smile Racing

Wouldn't be a Wonder Festival if Good Smile Company didn't bring along some Hatsune Miku figures for us. They pulled out all the stops with the latest race queen versions of Miku including no less than two figmas, some fun Ne...

SDCC 2014: Pop Culture Shock

If you like large, well-painted figures, Pop Culture Shock may have what you need. If they don't have what you need, give them a year and see what random licenses they pick up. This year they carved out their own piece of the floor at SDCC, and marked it with some Akuma busts and a big red demon.

SDCC 2014: Tokidoki

Tokidoki drew a pretty large crowd at SDCC. People were just eating up their shirts, bags, and small figures. Fortunately I was able to get into their booth to take a look at what they were selling. The aesthetic is very cute, and they have a wide variety of merchandise. Check out the pictures after the jump!

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.

SDCC 2014: Sideshow Collectibles - statues and maquettes part 2

Continuing with Sideshow coverage, here's the rest of their licensed statues and maquettes. Star Wars characters featured heavily, as did Marvel. The booth also had a smattering of horror and other movie characters. Most of the experience is about simply gaping in awe at the larger scale figures (especially the legendary scale ones).
