Makuhari Messe was host to Winter Wonder Festival recently. WonFes, to give it its shorter name, is a garage kit and model expo which draws huge numbers and more specifically, cosplayers all dressed up showing off their favourite anime or gaming characters. Here are some pics below which Rocket News managed to grab of the event.
Super Sonico is the spokesperson for Nitroplus music but also happens to be starring in her own anime these days. So in a stroke of genius promoting, she made an appearance at the Winter WonFes over the weekend and brought along her scary manager for the ride.
Super Sonico and manager, Kitamura, complete with devil mask were in attendance as life sized models that fans could take their picture with.
As a new fan of Super Sonico, Japandaman approves of this 🙂
Kill la Kill fans need to pay attention to this next piece. Good Smile Company and Max Factory have taken the covers off of their latest upcoming figmas and nendoroids.
They’ve chosen the recent Winter Wonder Festival to unveil these amazing looking Kill la Kill models. A couple of the nendoroids shown by Good Smile Company were of Ryuko and Mako with Mako looking like an unpainted prototype model. Max Factory meanwhile had their amazing looking figma of Ryuko on display. No news on when these will hit stores or when pre-orders will start but they’re definitely attracting heaps of attention.
Super Sonico fans, old and new alike (us, us!), will love this new character that was just shown off by the character designer, Tsuji Santa. The figure is being shown at the Winter Wonder Festival or, WonFes for short, this weekend.
The figure is known as the Rock’n Roll Valentine and is named after one of the songs that Sonico performs in the band. The figure will be on display at the Good Smile Booth during the event.
Anyone else think she’s deadset kawaii!?
This Armin figure, from Attack on Titan, below looks amazing but you might find it’s a tad difficult to get your hands on. Let’s look at some specifics first.
The figure comes with three different interchangeable facial plates, 3D manoeuvre gear and cloak and will cost ¥4,500. The figure however, will only be sold on the Good Smile Company’s online store or by placing a pre-order at the Winter Wonder Festival figures event which takes place February 9th.
Pretty awesome looking, no?
