Wonder Festival 2015 Summer: Misc Garage Kits (part 3)

That's it, I'm done. If you want an image which pretty much explains what kind of weirdness to expect from these kinds of galleries, I think the banner image pretty much sums it up. We can safely ignore the cool (and borderli...   0

Wonder Festival 2015 Summer: Misc Garage Kits (part 2)

For our second gallery of misc garage kits, we have a... rather normal collection if we have to be honest. Most are likely to be based from a video game series but sadly, my knowledge doesn't stretch far enough to name them a...   0

Wonder Festival 2015 Summer: Vocaloid Garage Kits
