Wonder Festival 2016 Summer: GoodSmile Company

This might be an unpopular opinion, but I don't actually rate GoodSmile Company as that great a figure company. Their output is solid but very rarely truly impresses. Then again, their output, with help from umbrella companie...   0

Wonder Festival 2016 Summer: Nendoroids

And next, we move onto another GoodSmile Company juggernaut in the form of their Nendoroids. I have to admit that I still get the odd one or two of these from time to time and the selection is so large, I'm sure everyone will...   0

Wonder Festival 2016 Summer: Megahouse

Megahouse had a very eclectic mix of items on display but the one major theme was that most were from very popular anime, both past and present. The Shonen Jump titles continue to have a strong presence with more One Piece, D...   0

Wonder Festival 2016 Summer: Plamax

I have to admit that I'm not convinced about the new plamax line from Max Factory. Initially, it looked like a good idea, a way for them to move into plamodels and sticking with mecha lines which weren't tied to sunrise, but ...   0

Wonder Festival 2016 Summer: Figma

Rather unsurprisingly, GoodSmile Company was out in full force at Wonder Festival, showing off all their associated lines with a mix of old and new as well as expected items and unexpected ones! Looking at the Figmas first, t...   0

Wonder Festival 2016 Summer: Vertex

I think Vertex has given us the closest thing to a figure version of the "Sonic Cycle." Their figure announcements are usually interesting and the prototypes always seem to look good but the finished products always seem to f...   0

Wonder Festival 2016 Summer: Kotobukiya

With Wonder Festival happening around the same time as SDCC, it should be no surprise that a company with a booth at both events would have a lot of overlap in what they were showing off. Such is the case with Kotobukiya. Tia...   0

Alter is one of the bigger names when it comes to figures but their output has slowed in recent years. Having said that, I feel that they have upped their game again after a number of rather bland entries... But for this year...   0

Wonder Festival 2016 Summer: Aquamarine

The main problem with having SDCC and Wonder Festival on the same week is that, particularly for the more international companies, like GoodSmile Company and Kotobukiya, there are lots of overlaps between the 2 events so a lo...   0

Hot Toys revisit Resident Evil for the series 20th anniversary!

Yeah, we know that Resident Evil 6 wasn't exactly a great game but it is the last (thus far) main game in the series so if a company is going to celebrate the series, this is probably going to be the one to go to, especially ...   0
