Wonder Festival Summer 2018 AfterthoughtsWonder Festival Summer 2018 Afterthoughts

LoveChopperLoveChopper2 months agoDiary
Has been quite some time since my last post. Working and studying is taking its toll and I simply cannot afford the time to watch anime or unbox my figures, let alone posting blog. However, this is Wonfest!!!, one of the biggest event for figure lovers. My post has to be done!!! As usual, I have divided them into four broad categories below:

“Sorry Wallet-san, Room Space-san” Figures

https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-ug5udDTdgXQ/W2cX0qe79KI/AAAAAAAAAls/EfFFnDafQQ8je25TJcNo8ivSz33V6iD2QCLcBGAs/s640/Shuvi_meitu_1.jpg

I am going gaga over these potential releases!! Cannot decide which will be my number one: Shuvi Dola from No Game No Life Zero or the KHR nendoroids by Good Smile Company. That Shuvi is so so cute!! cannot wait to see her painted! Biting my wallet to death continues with the release of Mukuro Rokudo, Xanxus and Squalo. Hope for the rest of the tenth generation of Vongola Famiglia to be released!!! Will love to have the Arcobaleno too also. am I being too wishful....??? haha

As expected of Kuujou Joutarou from Jojo no Kimyou na Bouken. That cool demeanor! Hope GSC will release his stand, Star Platinum. Please no plastic sheet of his stand please as seen in some other nendoroids like Kyuubi for Naruto. That is really a poor man's substitute. Ora Ora Ora Ora~!~!~!

Kakyoin is also getting a release as well. Almost likely to get him as well. Was hoping for Rohan from Diamond is Unbreakable though


“Full of Hopes”” Figures

https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-cX5FtXf5o3M/W2cYqpN_lJI/AAAAAAAAAl8/j3XRCvjqEUAKCJ5Ag7mJYqRFBlcYHfisQCLcBGAs/s640/Yu-Gi-Oh%2521%2BDuel%2BMonsters%2B-%2BBlue-Eyes%2BWhite%2BDragon%2B-%2BArt%2BWorks%2BMonsters%2B%2528MegaHouse%2529.jpg

OMG! cannot contain my joy when I first saw this picture. Blue-Eyes White Dragon by Megahouse! It is painted somemore!!! Finally get the chance to display Kaiba with his strongest dragon. However, I really love my current Yugioh set-up. Most importantly, I do not think I have the space to shift around to fit Blue Eyes in. In addition, knowing Megahouse and its latest pricing range, this will surely cost an arm and a leg. The jury is still out on this...

https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-We1m82YWNkE/W2cYqvYD-EI/AAAAAAAAAmA/2TUVtr3WylIBVYOMGKE165Qa_t-86PsvQCEwYBhgL/s640/One%2BPiece%2B-%2BRoronoa%2BZoro%2B-%2BPortrait%2BOf%2BPirates%2BLimited%2BEdition%2B-%2B1-8%2B-%2Bver.%2B3000%2BWorld%2B%2528MegaHouse%2529.jpg

My love for One Piece have waned quite drastically. However, this unpainted prototype, Zoro 3000 world version by Megahouse is hard to ignore. That facial expression already look so sick! Waiting for the painted prototype enthusiastically before I decide whether to include him in my collection.

https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-WuqTyzfGEZw/W2cYqrXYZUI/AAAAAAAAAl4/JruWibjdqlM8nskedNNGshpOn31h_C_5gCEwYBhgL/s640/No%2BGame%2BNo%2BLife%2B-%2BShiro%2B-%2BPop%2BUp%2BParade%2B-%2BSniper%2BVer.%2B%2528Good%2BSmile%2BCompany%2529.jpg

Shiro by Good Smile Company. A new line, Pop Up Parade from Good Smile Company. It is supposed to be cheaper and rival prize figures. Will certainly welcome more nice figures for my NGNL collection.


“What the Fish” Figures

https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-fWOpGhsnlEA/W2cY32zBQzI/AAAAAAAAAmE/ckQanwcVKQUJthD9fxgQSGYpdTgfX6OWACLcBGAs/s640/No%2BGame%2BNo%2BLife%2B-%2BHatsuse%2BIzuna%2B-%2B1-7%2B%2528Phat%2BCompany%2529.jpg

My worst nightmare has came true. Was not expecting much and true enough, a lewd version of Hatsuse Izuna from No Game No Life by Phat Company. I will have bought her instantly if not for that lewd shirt-pulling posture. Instant drop for me. So disappointed, still no Dola and Izuna in my NGNL collection.


“Blurry Unknown Realm” Figures

https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-xO0Rwp9mKY4/W2cZCUY05aI/AAAAAAAAAmQ/9yRdgBtbR1ABMXmkbLpV2EgInq96_hkCgCLcBGAs/s640/Boku%2Bno%2BHero%2BAcademia%2B-%2BMidoriya%2BIzuku%2B-%2B1-8%2B%2528Chara-Ani%2529_meitu_7.jpg

Deku from Boku no Hero Academia is getting the scale figure treatment from various companies. If you ask me, it is wayyy long overdue!! Given the popularity of this series, I am surprised that the market is not flooded with their figures. Frankly speaking, this two have not quite caught my eyes yet. The shading on the Chara-Ani's one feels off while the Kotobukiya's one feels quite plain.

https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-XyGJfHstxDU/W2cZDUFyh3I/AAAAAAAAAmg/_9jHWgKxy8oW69aDBvrGOwoWhuV4PkmmwCEwYBhgL/s640/Kono%2BSubarashii%2BSekai%2Bni%2BShukufuku%2Bo%2521%2B2%2B-%2BAqua%2B-%2B1-7%2B%2528Kadokawa%2529_meitu_10.jpg

Aqua & Megumin from Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku o by Kadokawa. Still early days, waiting to see their painted version.

https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-OeOeCyTFRdc/W2cZCpYDi4I/AAAAAAAAAmY/PXDlWHKY6T0jEafg5HmcutSaLoepxHvRwCEwYBhgL/s640/Gochuumon%2Bwa%2BUsagi%2BDesu%2Bka%2B-%2BAnko%2B-%2BKirima%2BSyaro%2B-%2BWild%2BGeese%2B-%2B1-7%2B-%2BKaitou%2BLapin%2B%2528Anime%2BUniversity%2BCOOP%252C%2BStronger%2529_meitu_8.jpg

Like BSR, this series, Gochuumon wa Usagi Desu ka threaten to underdetermine my figure collecting guidelines. Watched S1 and find the anime ok only. However, the figures..... omg so freaking cute!!! Finding it harder and harder to resist...

https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-nETW2CdY2Pg/W2cZCvo-tnI/AAAAAAAAAmU/fYIRJv_P7mgcnRs7oEcG318baAKINwz9ACEwYBhgL/s640/Eiga%2BNo%2BGame%2BNo%2BLife%2BZero%2B-%2BJibril%2B%2528Phat%2BCompany%2529_meitu_9.jpg

Will always welcome any figures from NGNL, especially when it is Jibril who is easily my favorite character for the series. As long as it is not something overly lewd.......

https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-eIAeARUu_5w/W2cZD0ze04I/AAAAAAAAAm4/vN35hDpMKtMYUBLq9vhUs9jhKC7hdooQQCEwYBhgL/s640/Kuroko%2Bno%2BBasket%2B-%2BKuroko%2BTetsuya%2B-%2BNendoroid%2B%2528Orange%2BRouge%2529_meitu_11.jpg

Wow, kinda speechless on this. The Generation of Miracles from Kuroko no Basuke is getting the nendoroid treatment. Izzit too late? They should have released much much earlier... I have even sold of my Kuroko scale figures.. wonder this nendoroid releases will rekindle my love to collect them again or not

Have to sneak in this Iori Yagami from King of FIghters. Not sure what studio is he from but will be waiting in anticipation for the colored prototype.


Overall Feelings

Certainly impressed with the nendoroids, with 6 of them going into my "holy grail muz buy" list. However, was pretty shocked that I do not have even 1 scale figure to aim for. Well, the 3 "Full of hopes" Figures are my best bets... Till the next Wonfest... じゃねぇ ^^v

Drizzyrissy (2 months ago) #38658907Tokoyami is soooo bae I really hope he gets some decent figure treatment soon. I don’t like nendos or figmas so my dream of a scale is much less realistic :’(

Haha u can try liking nendoroid if he is ever released.

damedanbo (2 months ago) #38633244I saw the Reborn nendoroids at the top and got excited all over again... I also hope they'll do the whole tenth gen. Chrome or riot! Also really cool to see some more My Hero Academia stuff coming out!
The one thing I was disappointed not to see at Wonfes was some Golden Kamuy scales, or at least another Nendoroid. :(

yurirainbowz (2 months ago) #38625517I'm glad they are all getting made, but I will only get those two as they are my favorites plus I ship them as a couple <3 Thankfully (for my wallet) I'm not a completion person so i will be fine with just those 2

haha i am somewhere between completion person and choose what I want from set person. certain line I want them all, others i pick and choose.

As for this, if they release the whole Seirin team, my wallet is likely to suffer serious damage >.<

xSelene89 (2 months ago) #38613380I can definetly feel you with that Izuna figure...I was excited to see a Rico scale on Wf 2018 some days ago until....well:
twitter.com/MUR...


really is "what the fish" figure, hold zero resemblance to how Rico is portrayed to be in the show

yurirainbowz (2 months ago) #38620127I'm also excited for the KnB nendos. However, I will only be getting Kuroko and Taiga as always haha

haha fan of those two? or looking forward to them releasing the whole of Seirin team like me?

Tokiha (2 months ago) #38623443Definitely also looking forward to those nendos! Specifically Akashi ahahah :D
Also love all the Fate Arthur figures coming out! I'm not even a huge Fate fan but they look so good T_T


yeah can kinda understand the fate figures popularity. did not want to open the pandora box myself, too many of them to buy with too little money to go about.

PanchitoMatte (2 months ago) #38624026One suggestion: In the future, would you please link the items you are writing about in the "Related Items" block?

no idea what you are talking about
