wonfes2016w header

Hi fellow figure collectors, a few days ago the first Wonderfestival of 2016 happened.

The Wonderfestival 2016 [Winter], it’s a main event for figure manufacturers to showcase their upcoming and planned figures. Illustrations, early prototypes and colored samples are shown at the several booths. Even though I’ve never been there in person, it’s always a highlight for me. In this post I will feature everything that caught my interest, normal and ecchi figures. I follow Wonfes since some years now, figures got so elaborate over the years.

My personal list of interest consist of 45 items, prototypes and illustrations included.

Max Factory

 

SoniAni: Super Sonico The Animation – Sonico – Racing ver.

I desired and slightly expected to see this wonderful Sonico painted already, apparently I will have to wait a few more months. I like everything about this sweetly smiling, curvy girl.

Top o Nerae 2! – Lal’C Mellk Mal

Mal got painted and looks really good, it’s been a little longer when I watched the anime, but I like the figures design a lot.

iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls – Kanzaki Ranko

Whew! I really like her make up in this figure adaption, also a lovely purple dress.

Hatsune Miku -Project Diva- F 2nd

Miku figures don’t often strike my interest, but I like this one. Vibrant colors, a super shiny outfit, a cute face … and somehow her armpit looks great.

Kantai Collection ~Kan Colle~ – Kouwan Seiki

*sob* I expected her to be painted after being introduced months ago, only the eyes received paint. Aside from that she is a super cute Abyssal girl, I can’t wait to see her with the pale skin.

Dagashi Kashi – Shidare Hotaru

This was approximately planned in advance, it’s pretty rare to see characters of the current anime season on Wonfes. I find Hotaru to be an enchanting kind of character, I love her dress, her shoes, also her proportions ;D And these vicious eyes, even though she is a friendly girl.

IDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls – Tada Riina

Before I watched Cinderella Girls, I wasn’t too interested in these Idol figures. The great anime made me a little crazy and now I really want a few of my favorites as figures ^^. One of them is definetely Riina. She looks so cool and will also have a guitar. Her close friend Miku already was listed in the shops…

Fate/Hollow Ataraxia – Saber Alter – Dress ver.

That is another stunning alternative design of the Saber character, I like her dark dress the blue gradient really brings out a menacing atmosphere and these angry eyes are great.

Love Live! School Idol Festival – Koizumi Hanayo

Hanayo looks so adorable as marine Idol, so cute ;D I like the elaborate uniform and her innocent smile. On second thought it appears a little childish and lacks megane.

Yosuga no Sora – Kasugano Sora – Bunny Style

Considering the illustration, this figure is based on, Bunny Sora will be a quite attractive figure.

Kekkai Sensen – Leonard Watch – Sonic Onsoku Saru

I liked the anime, still I probably did not understand half of what was going on haha. A male figure in 1/7 scale is something new. I liked Leonardo’s outfit in the ending animation.

Kantai Collection ~Kan Colle~ – Kongou

The queen of engrish!!! Phat really made an impressive figure of fast battleship Kongou, this is seriously awesome. The figure has nice details and will be even scaled 1/7 how cool is that!

Granblue Fantasy – Io – Manatsu no Chiisana Lady

I think this figure is extremely enchanting, the girl holding a sunflower in a dynamic pose while wearing this adorable expression on her face is a great idea for a figure.

Sculptor: Itandi
Scale: 1/7
Releases: unknown

 

Granblue Fantasy – Yueru – Chitose o Sagasusha

Phat Company really appears to be on a good run, this other Granblue Fantasy figure, is apparently the most elaborate and challenging figure of the Wonfes 2016 Winter. A lot is going on, flying strands, swords and fireballs, additionally the character is very atrractive, too. Alltogether it looks really awesome.

iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls – Moroboshi Kira

When I started watching Cinderella Girls, I didn’t expect to meet such wonderful and enchanting 2D waifu in the anime. This figure announcement surprised me even more. It makes me “Happy Happy!”.

Dimension W – Yurizaki Mira

Mira is such an adorable humanoid robot, the main character should really treat her better. …don’t ask me why the figure focuses on the characters butt, but I guess I don’t mind it.

Original Character – Super Pochaco

The Pochako fandom still remains to be a mistery for me… Here she finally wears some actually cute clothes and surprisingly the girl looks quite sweet.  Maybe a little less belly would be appreciated, but I’m sure this will be a popular figure.

 Original Character – Character’s Selection – Succubus-san

*Kyahhh!* Seeing this marvelous Succubus – san was a real surprise this Wonfes. This figure is so beautiful (/∇\*)。o○♡. The cute face and attractive soft body are totally convincing for me.

Love Live! School Idol Project – Yazawa Niko

FREEing totally surprised me with elaborate looking Love Live! girls in their school uniforms. Nico is so cute in her pink jacket and this extremely cute expression.

Senran Kagura NewWave G-Burst – Ikaruga – Race Queen

Two reasons make this figure a nearly fix must have for me, Ikaruga is the prettiest Senran Kagura girl in my eyes and the sculptor in charge is Osiris, who really knows how to make curvy girls look stunning.

Sengoku Bushouki Muramasa – Toudou Takatora

A flirty  buxom bunny costume warrior figure.

Aria – Aria Pokoteng – Mizunashi Akari

I guess there is another Aria anime season in the making … I like Aria a lot, it has always been something special for me. Ok the end made me cry my eyes out, but thats another story. I’m already happy about a Akari figure, thought it would be cool to have an Alicia, too.

Saya no Uta – Saya

Finally a figure of Saya, it’s a beautiful characterdesign, afterall.

Houkago no Pleiades – Aoi & Subaru – Swimsuit ver.

Well, it’s obvious that the both of them look super cute and pretty. Apparently the figures of Aoi and Subaru can be ordered seperately, but with both you will be able to display them like this. I like the combination of two characters, when they can be connected this closely.

Sonico

Sonico figures are probably my biggest weakness as figure collector. I like what the still unknown sculptor did. She turned out quite buxom considering Sonico’s official measurements, awww these amazing thighs. I also like the priceless facial expression, Sonico tied up with the phone is just too funny and it partially turns me on.

Parsley – Original Character

Last times illustration was turned into a beautiful prototype. Her expression is nice and her boobs are nicely shaped. It’s Native, don’t mind her swordskills ahahaha. Hmmm I kinda want that figure.

Mahou Shoujo – Kuramoto Erika

Erika also improved when turned into 3D, her boobs got smaller (no kidding!) and her facial expression totally got more appealing. I’m interested in this figure now.

Original Character – Chuunyuu! Sakurako-san

It’s still not painted *AHHH!* … but it seems as if her prototype sculpting was finished. Please paint this figure before next Wonfes, it would make me so happy.

Original Character – Tabby-san

A more innocent ecchi figure by Native, or to be accurate the manufacturer is Peach and Native acts as distributor. It’s cute, I like the petite maid.

Original Character – Yuuki Hagure

Another prototype based on a illustration from a previous Wonfes. And again it looks much better in 3D. The character has a beautiful, expressive face and detailed clothes.

Shining Wind – Touka Kureha

A stunning sculpt of Touka Kureha, OS is quite capricious with their releases and priority of figures to finish, but someday it will be painted and probably look stunning.

Sex Life – Saotome Maria

With this turning of “illustration into prototype” Orchid Seed was rather fast, I already liked the illustration and the prototype also looks very good already.

Aria – Mizunashi Akari

New Vision Toys also announced a Akari figure, her face is cuter and shows more emotion than the version made by Wing, it seems to be a promising figure.

    Writing this two months late, I think the two figures that really caught my eye were Toshirou’s flower girl figure that recently went up for preorder, and Alter’s Sora Kasugano, though I really would have preferred it if the design were bare-legged instead of wearing pantyhose. I also liked pretty much everything SkyTube showed, and I also liked FREEing’s 1/4 scale Angela Balzac, though I have no idea where I’m going to put it, being that she’s stretched out on the ground.

    • wieselhead

      Oh, the flower girl is such an odd combination of pretty flower and complete lack of modesty ;p
      Ah, yes bare legged sounds slightly more exciting (´・` )♡ I guess it’s the common combination to have a bunnysuit with pantyhose.
      The Angela Balzac figure would need a special place, I guess.

  2. Fabrice

    Hey Fabian!
    Its been a while since a Wonfes as so many figures that picked my liking!
    I really really like the Granblue Fantasy figures they are both so dynamic and I really adore the first one Chiisana holding the sunflower (sunflower is one of my favorite flowers)
    She looks adorable! I also like the Hanayo saior figure, they sculpture made it look grand!
    AND OH MY DAYS a AKARI FIGURE! Its been so long ive been wanting a Akari figure as i have none and she looks so nice with president! i will have too make space which I think I can actually, Akari is a must!

    • wieselhead

      Hey Fabrice, thx for visting my blog, it’s an honor and makes me happy (‐^▽^‐)
      Sometimes it seems a little nicer than in previous years, although I’m always very excited.
      Yeah, there is something very enchanting about the flower holding girl, I love it ♡
      Alter makes good figures for Love Live, I ordered only Nico so far, I might add another one.
      It’s wonderful that Aria returns as anime soon. I watched everything a few more years ago,
      I guess I really became a fan. I’m really looking forward to see these two Akari’s painted.
      … and maybe more manufacturers will join the Aria figure boat haha.

    Sadly my worst fears came to pass and this was a very good Wonfes for me. I already knew I would be hooked on idols, Uzuki, Ranko, Native’s idol, the list goes on and on. If only that had been all of it it would have been nice but I ended getting some nice surprises such as the orange bloom Miku, Saya actually getting a sculpt and a surprisingly large number of Native figures catching my eyes. Plus all those figmas, I can see that number of owned slowly growing to 200..

    Over all quite satisfied with all the cute idols, girls, eldritch abomination and Saitama.

    • wieselhead

      Oh I see, well it is always a good event for us fans and collectors.
      Yeah, it’s awesome that Saya finally gets a figure adaption.
      Somehow the ecchi figures get more appealing each year, more subtle presented nudity is good.

      I never really look at anything else except figures on Wonfes, it just gets filtered out lol.

  4. Hoshiko

    Man, I’d love to see that Overlord – Albedo sculpted. The illustration is beyond amazing. By the way, any plans of personally visiting WonFes anytime soon? Each time WonFes arrives, I wish I’m there personally to feel the atmosphere and see the figures myself.

    • wieselhead

      I see, well I actually expected to see something more of it than a halfhearted announcement ;D.
      Oh, I have plans, but still it feels impossible for me to ever get there, if at all I would prefer to visit a Wonderfestival in summer.
      I would like to take my own pictures there, honestly speaking ^^

  5. Kai

    Shit, that Miku figure. I want to buy. But my space, money… Never ending problems of a figure collector.

    Approximately, how big are 1/7 figures? I know it should be around 20cm in height for 1/8.

    • wieselhead

      Ahaha, yeah sometimes these shiny plastic gems, makes us experience some hardships.
      I’m selling some from time to time, to prevent space problems…
      These 1/7 scaled ones are often 23 – 24 cm in height ^^

  6. JaqueCloud

    I really like the original character swimsuit one , the pose is quite unique just as you wrote and the base is pretty interesting aswell . Well her looks are pretty enchanting too 😀
    There were a few nice figures but I´m still kind of dissapointed because there were only a few nice ones. But maybe I just set my exceptations a little too high , I really enjoyed this post there are a few figures included I didnt even saw yet . The Super Pochacho might be nice too :3

    • wieselhead

      Yeah, she’s really attractive (‐^▽^‐)
      I guess I never have been anything near dissapointment with any Wonfes, I always find some more figures to like 😀
      Ah thanks, thats good to hear ( ̄▽ ̄)ノ some things are always hidden. Yes, the cute “Pummelfee” XD
