Wonder Festival 2017 (Winter): misc Garage Kits (Part 2)

Here we are, the final garage kit gallery which, as tradition dictates, is the final miscellaneous gallery.  Well, I don't think anyone expected a figure of the girl with the pearl earring! Still, it's a mighty impressiv...   0

Wonder Festival 2017 (Winter): Video Game Garage Kits (Part 2)

I'm not really a fan of Granblue Fantasy but credit where credit is due, the Collaboration figure between Granblue Fantasy and Streetfighter 2 looks pretty damn great, with (I think) Djeeta cosplaying Chun Li! What's more ama...   0

Wonder Festival 2017 (Winter): Anime Garage Kits (Part 3)

We're reaching the end of our Winter wonder festival coverage and we're wrapping up the coverage of the anime kits with a number of more recent characters. I don't think any of us expected kits from Drifters but here we are w...   0

Wonder Festival 2017 (Winter): Rhythm game Garage Kits

I thought I'd try something a little different and combine the rhythm game figures into their own gallery so they don't bloat out the other video game kit galleries. So here, you will find the idolm@ster and Vocaloid kits. A ...   0

Wonder Festival 2017 (Winter): KanColle Garage Kits

Regardless of the resurgence of Fate kits, it's safe to say that the KanColle juggernaut is showing no sign of slowing down. Warspite makes her WF debut this time around (Rule Britannia!!) and, as always, the Abyssal units ar...   0

Wonder Festival 2017 (Winter): Fate Garage Kits

Well, a lot of people took it unto themselves to make sure the "year of fate" definitely came to pass. And with Fate/Grand Order, there no shortage of characters to choose as a subject! While I think Granblue Fantasy still ed...   0

Wonder Festival 2017 (Winter): Anime Garage Kits (Part 2)

One of the best things about the figures seen in the dealer area is that you can find some kits from titles which have been all but forgotten now, particularly from older shows. And you can also find some seriously new charac...   0

Wonder Festival 2017 (Winter): Native

Wonder Festival 2017 (Winter): Hobby Japan

Just look at the banner! Just look at it!! Bathe in the awesomeness that is the final scene between X and zero in Megaman X! Done enough? Then check out the figure of Yuzuruha who, sadly was a bit too NSFW to get onto the banner. Still a very sexy figure though! Oh yeah, there's also an Ann figure from persona 5. Now, Back to Yuzuruha!!   [via moeyo]   0

This Ikkitousen figure... Isn't all that bad!! And it's a Kanu?

Many moons ago, Ikkitousen was pretty much the butt of many jokes among the figure community. The license was easy to get a hold of and the figure market was still relatively young so many Ikkitousen figures were basically th...   0
