Treasure Festa in Ariake 8: Griffon Enterprises

3:00 PM on 12.18.2012 // Chris Seto

Biggest dog in the yard!

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 not to go, which would explain the lack of noise surrounding the event. But that means that the garage kit makers got a better chance to shine!

We'll have more coverage on that later on but the event was not completely without major companies as Griffon Enterprises took time to show off what they have planned for releases in the near future. Sadly, aside from the touhou figures, there was a lack of anything particularly new but enough to keep eyes open for a while, particularly the Misaki Mei from Another!

But for now, consider this a warmup before we delve into the garage kit coverage!
