Wonder Festival 2017 Summer Wrap Up

Long time no post! I’ve been particularly busy on my own things – including a figure-centric (and sometimes other things) website and more YouTube content! But I’m here again to show all you Japanda-fans (ha ha) the new figures that you have absolutely got to make sure you know about from the top figure trade show, Wonder Festival.

This event runs twice a year, in February and July, and without fail there is always something to excite people. But not only that, in the same weekend, we just had the joy of a Fate/Grand Order centric show and just prior to that, several major American conventions that have heaps of the manufacturers we know and love showing off their goods.

But now straight to that, lets look firstly at the new stuff from the Wonderful Hobby Life 4 You collection – the fact that Good Smile Company are so kind to create an entire page of their announcements makes the lives of people like us so much easier!

Some personal key highlights from the GSC umbrella include the painted scale versions of the Your Name characters, everything Saekano, all the wonderful Touken Ranbu announcements and updates, and a glorious Wedding Dress version of Louise from Zero no Tsukaima.

But of course, while GSC and Co may take up about half of the main manufacturer’s event hall, there are other companies there with some amazing announcements and updates. Enjoy the gallery below of my choice picks.

Feel free to have a chat with me on my social media on Facebook and Instagram if you want to discuss the event and don’t forget to follow me on YouTube for more figure-centric content! You can also get more WonFes action with my website, kittokatsu.net, including an editorial which is due to be posted this week!
