Finally, an excuse to go out for an excursion. Unlike previous years, I came hoping to buy something, having developed a recent interest in Revoltech figures. I arrived at noon on a cold, gloomy Sunday and headed for the vendor booths. First stop was Kotobukiya, with some Zoids:
And then there’s an assortment of mechas, including Super Robot Wars, Armored Core, Patlabor & Frame Arms:
There’s also these Hoi Hoi san figures:
And some other figures:
Next up is the Revoltech section. At the Tokusatsu (特撮) series section, they had several already released and soon-to-be released lineups on display, including Ironman & Jack Sparrow. I wanted to get my hands on the Skeleton Warrior but as luck would have it, it was sold out. They also had this promo where you buy a Tokusatsu series figure for 3000yen and you get the chance to win another random one with a spin of the dice. But having already bought Alien Warrior and Gamera recently, there wasn’t anything that I was interested in (except the Skeleton Warrior which was sold out).
For the Yamaguchi lineup there was the Jehuty from Zone of the Enders:
And several Gainax-related figures:
Some pics from the Yamato Macross series:
These are some pics from the Figma section. I’m curious how the Robocop figure will turn out.
Some Marvel & DC Comic characters:
And some Panty & Stocking figures, including Pantymus and Stockingtron from the Transformers parody episode.
The very few Gunplas that were on display that day:
Mechs from Full Metal Panic and The Big O:
Some finely detailed monster figures:
And creepy heads:
Some random figures:
Some other stuff in and around the area. The pic on the right is a scale model of the Tower of the Sun in Banpaku Kouen, Osaka.
Remember the boob mousepads I showed some while back? Well they came up with another variation: ass mouspads
And if you’re expecting some cosplay pics, sorry to disappoint. I just couldn’t bother queuing up to take their photos, especially those ladies with more skin on show. Here’s just some random shots I took:
It seems Dom and Gyan lost their inner frames:
As a consolation, here’s some pictures of proper models (race queens maybe?) at the Evangelion section. There was a race car and bike painted in Eva unit-01 colors there as well.
And that’s it for this years Winter Wonfes. I was walking around looking for some stuff to buy, and was quite tempted to buy the Peacewalker by Playarts at 5000yen. But in the end I decided against it. Tried looking for some rare gunlpa kits as well, but as expected most were sold at a premium price. In the end, I bought a 1/6 scale sniper rifle from Yellow Submarine. I figured it would fit my MG Dom which I plan to build (someday).
