Not that she could technically could get bigger

It's not that much of a surprise to see a lot of Sonico at WonFes. I'm not a fan but definitely understand why her fans are so enamored. They'll be plenty happy as there's big things on the horizon for the Nitro+ mascot.

First is the announcement of a future release inspired by the art of Shunya Yamashita. Combining the two is just about perfect for the fans, especially with the sculpting being done by Reflect. Also at the show is the famed Tiger Hoodie version by Gift. I've always liked what they've done and their craftsmanship pays off here.

However, all is not right in the land of Sonico. I'm honestly petrified by the French maid piece. My face of horror can only be surpassed by the one portrayed on the figure itself. There is also the matter of A-Toys 1/2 Sonico. Let's not revisit those thoughts again.

You can make yourself feel better by looking through the better pieces in the gallery below.
