Tokyo Wonder Festival or most commonly known as Wonder Festival ((ワンダーフェスティバル) or WonFes (ワンフェス, wanfesu) is an event held twice every year: Summer and Winter. The purpose is to show various garage and/or resin for future releases. At the same time, various sculptors show off their creations in wonder showcase, however, our attention were mainly focused on major manufacturers such Alter, Good Smile Company, Max Factory, Kotobukiya, Griffon Enterprises, MegaHouse and many more.
We all wonders what kind of figures/nendos/figma will be released in the near future. So far we can all agree that we may need to file for bankruptcy before the end of this year ^^;. Ok, maybe not all but I know I am going to. Without further ado, here is my wish list from WonFes Summer 2010.
Lovely pose from Hitagi. Her trademark staple makes her even more adorable and her pose was taken from the covert art of DVD volume 1. She is not yet painted so I will have to see if she will be worth buying, although, she is looking good so far.
Alter does know their customer really well with this Fate Testarossa casual version not along after Fate Testarossa ~Phantom Minds~ is available for pre-order. Is this a way for milking $$$ from Nanoha the movies ? It sure does work on me.
I enjoy the series so that is why these figures are in my wish list. I may pass on Koromo but Nodotchi looks great and promising. Looks like there are quite few details on her clothing. Not to mention her wings and scarf makes her more appealing.
Now this looks very interesting since she looks top-less and her ‘top’ part is sculptured with great details ^^ . Since this is Kotobukiya, I have to look at painting quality before deciding to get her since it’s most likely 50-50 chance.
Now, this one is a pure win. I’ve been longing for Alicia figure from any of well-known manufacturers since I played the game and watched the anime many months ago. The anime version is not as good as game and the game received several recognition as the best strategy game. This is definitely in my buy list and I will take my chances with Kotobukiya.
For those who have watched anime, I am sure you remember her seductive pose at the end of anime ending. DFC and loli fans must be really excited to acquire her as their collection. Her pose is the most appealing point for me and which is why she is in my wish list ^^.
This is a tough decision. I have to choose between Yuri and Tenshi when the time comes. Tenshi’s pose is more appealing to me ^^.
As a fan of Da Capo series, this nendoroid of Nemu Asakura is too good to pass it up. It includes the white cat (I think?) that always appears in Da Capo series. I couldn’t recall what its name >.<. I rarely buy nendoroids since I am not into those but I do make exceptions in case of my favourite series.
And of course more Nanoha from the first movie as if we don’t have enough figures from Nanoha series already. She is only 1/12 scale but she takes a lot of space with her magic circle and divine buster pose.
Since Nanoha and Fate go hand in hand, releasing only Nanoha sounds little bit weird so here goes another Fate. Majority of people probably will go with Fate but personally, I would choose Nanoha because her divine buster pose.
Didn’t expect to see more figures from Rin especially in Unlimited Blade Works. Her hair is just great. Must be really hard trying to sculpt her hair.
Her pose is taken from Tony Taka’s illustration in form of desktop wallpaper. You can get it from here. Her stunning pose is probably the highest appeal point in this figure. I am not a fan of Hatsune Miku per say but I do enjoy Tony Taka’s work so depending on the price, I most likely will be getting her.
Best dark Sakura that I have ever seen and look at her clothing. There are a lot of details and pattern on her clothing. This is a must buy for me.
Earlier, you have seen Mina tepes in her loli form and for those who are not a loli fan, you can rest assured that there will be awakened ver. of Mina. Her pose looks promising so far and I cannot to take a look at her painted.
Now , this is something that you don’t see everyday. A figure from Guilty Gears game and they chose the best character in Guilty Gear. I can only imagine the amount of details/efforts in the making of this figure since technically it’s a 3-person figure: Devil/Necro, Dizzy and Angel.
