Wonder Festival Winter 2016: Misc Garage Kits (Part 1)

And next, we have the kits which I was unable to categorise, either because I was unable to recognise the series, it is an original work or it was just too plain weird to fit into one of the other categories... And boy, was t...   0

Time to look into the video game garage kits now and the Idolm@ster is taking the whole thing by storm. No doubt buoyed by the recent anime series, the members of the Cinderella project have been getting a lot of exposure thi...   0

Wonder Festival 2016 Winter: Plum

Plum aren't really the kind of figure maker which one keeps their eyes on. Their figures have been decent but never particularly outstanding but sometimes, that's enough. Afterall, they have made the second best Alisa figure ...   0

Wonder Festival 2016 Winter: Megahouse

Not one to be left out, Megahouse joined with the other big name figure companies... and showed off a bunch of rather boring figures from popular (mostly shonen jump) series. There was also a female Monkey D Luffy figure in t...   0
