Wonder Festival 2014 [Winter] just closed and the preeminent hobby show in Japan was full of promising new items that have a lot of collectors excited. Let’s take a look at a few that caught our eye.
Wonder Festival, or Wonfes for short, is a hobby show held twice yearly at Makuhari Messe, in Chiba. It features plenty of limited edition garage kits from small companies and sometimes from individual sculptors as well as future releases from major collectible companies as well. This year’s Wonfes was covered in snow, as Japan is getting hit hard by a major coldfront. The snow and cold didn’t stop the hoards of otaku from making their way to Makhari Messe.
Like singer May’n in the title picture for this article, we’re excited about some of the new releases that were displayed at this year’s winter show. She scored a Magical Snow Version Snow Miku Nendoroid from Good Smile Company which was available at the show and currently available for order online for those of us who weren’t lucky enough to be there.
Without further ado, let’s take a look at some more good stuff from Good Smile Company, Max Factory, Phat!, Kotobukiya, Bandai, Kaiyodo, and more!
