I didn’t plan on going to this year’s Wonder Festival, but I happened to be in Tokyo so I thought I’d drop by and take some photos. I have no details about the latest figures and what not; I just took photos of what that looked interesting.

But I really have to take my hat off to the cosplayers who braved the intense summer heat, especially those wearing all-covering costumes. So anyway enjoy the pics…



Wonder Festival Summer 2012

Here’s some photos from this year’s summer WonFes. I arrived in the afternoon amidst the sweltering heat and entered the nearest exhibition hall, which happened to be for garage kits. Ultimately I spent most of my time there, and didn’t had the time to see the official vendor’s exhibition. So if you’re looking for photos or news regarding the latest Revoltech, Figma or other releases, then I’m sorry to disappoint.

So anyway, I’ll just let the pictures do the talking. I also managed to take some cosplay shots (after queuing up) for those interested. A word of caution though, some of the following pics may not be appropriate for minors nor safe for viewing at work. For the really NSFW pics, you can find them here. You have been warned.

With that, I end this brief report.

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).
