wonfes 2014 summer

On the 27th of July 2014, the summer event of the Wonder Festival 2014 opened it’s doors.
It’s the most popular figure fair were the big and small figure manufacturers and also Garage Kit makers assemble to present their latest work and announcements for upcoming products.

In this post I will take a closer look on a few selected figure items from the big event, I only listed the things I’m interested in and added illustrations were I thought it was necessary.



The new summer Wonder Festival figure & GK fair is close, before a new figure avalanche begins, I want to take a look at the figures that caught my interest in the last few months.

I didn’t place any figure preorder lately, not that there wasn’t any appealing stuff for me, but somehow I feel quite conservative about preorders at the moment. I can’t really put my finger on it, but it might have something to do with rising prices, 10.000 Yen have became common for regular 1/8 scaled figures. Also the sheer amount of figures make it difficult to decide for one figure out of a bunch of really pretty figures. I thought just with waiting would sort out things by itself and I could see my priorities more clear. It worked a bit actually, but not as efficient as I imagined it to be. Hey selling some things might end my misery at once.

Today we will take a look at the second Cinderella Girl figure, Shimamura Uzuki. Like Rin Shibuya she was also manufactured by Good Smile Company as part of the New Generation version line up. This figure was released by the end of May 2014 one month after Rin Shibuja.

Guess Who’s back?

This longer break wasn’t intentional, I have to blow the dust from my Dashboard.

That was a nice long break wasn’t it? Sometimes its nice to break free from your usual routine and do something else, in my case nothing. to my excuse I thought about doing a post, about my holidays, my Azone Doll or my Kancolle adventures. I decided to make a new figure review.

It´s about my long awaited Sorceress figure, not from Dragon’s Crown but Dragon Nest, just use Dragon with anything and you have a cool Game Title.

iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls is basically an online game that can be played on your mobile, the player takes the role of producer san. You collect Idols, train them and enhance their stats. I haven’t played it so far, but we will take a look at the figure from Good Smile Company.

In terms of figures Cinderella Girls seems to be on par with the popularity of Kancolle.
It’s funny at first most figures were mainly based on dating sims and eroge, then anime characters became and still are the driving factor, but it is interesting to see the very amount of announced figures that are based on characters that have simple Flash Games as their origin . There are over 100 different Idols in the Game and there have been already a few figma releases, scale figures have been announced by GSC and Phat Company so far.



Shibuya Rin is the most popular character from Cinderella Girls, in casual clothes she is described to have an unfriendly appearance. Well, there not much info about her, she is 15 years old and likes dogs. Her zodiac is the lion, hey I have some things in common with Rin.
