The Wonderfestival [SUMMER] event of 2015 recently took place at Makuhari Messe Halls 1-8.
Twice a year this large figure fair features the latest and upcoming products in the figure collecting world, scale figures, Nendoroids, action figures and Garage Kits are in the spotlight.
Like always I focus on the things I found interesting, obviously I’m mainly interested in scale figures. Since I wasn’t present in person I have to rely on third party pictures, thank you for taking these pictures, ありがとう ^^
Also this time, many wonderful figures were on display, come with me and have a look…
To LOVEru Darkness – Lala Satalin Deviluke – Swimsuit ver
This figure is scaled 1/6 and shows next to an adorable face an impressive body sculpting. The wide open hot pants make it more ecchi than necessary, anyway ALTER’s Lala is a beauty.
Oboro Muramasa – Yuzuruha
I guess a few of you waited for this figure, already in this rough prototype it’s a fantastic sculpt, it combines the elegance of a kimono with traditional umbrella and the charmig appeal points of a woman. The revealed shoulders are really nice （*´▽｀*）
Sword & Wizards – Yukishiro Fuyuka
An interesting concept, don’t ask me why ALTER became so ecchi with their figures, actually I don’t really mind. What about you?
Ano Natsu de Matteru – Tanigawa Kanna – Swimsuit ver
This pretty, young lady is also scaled 1/6 in her beach related outfit she looks very good. Kanna’s short hair and expressive face also add a lot to this figure.
Love Live! School Idol Festival – Yazawa Niko
ALTER’s Love Live! figures are all really sparkling items with detailed and creative outfits. Here is an overview of figures to be made. When looking at this Overview I probably would instantly buy Nozomi and Hanayo. My other favorite character is Niko, which was shown this time. Her outfit is literally exploding with details and the cheerfulness is amazing.
Kekkai Sensen – Leonard Watch – ALTAiR – Ending ver
Thats a really cool announcement!
Super Sonico The Animation – Sonico – Racing ver
This gave me a quite a heartattack as I saw a Sonico made by Max Factory and sculpted by YOSHI. Race version of Sonico shows her in a cheerful outfit with a new hairstyle and beautiful boobs. It’s a feel good Sonico figure where she smiles as much as the viewer. To be honest I was sure to stop collecting Sonico figures this year before seeing her new version.
I LOVE YOU ( ˊᵕˋ )♡
Kantai Collection ~Kan Colle~ – Kouwan Seiki
Some of the Kancolle enemies are incredibly cute, this lady with the big hands for example. Her shy gaze is great, she probably needs a hug from the Admiral. … and these thighs are just marvelous.
Kantai Collection ~Kan Colle~ – Atago
I like that they did not use Atago’s damaged illustration and that her pose is not too static.
op o Nerae 2! – Lal’C Mellk Mal
I liked the anime she is based on and as far as I can remember I also liked the character.
Dragon’s Crown – Sorceress
A wonderful adaption of the Sorceress character, she’s pretty and the single bare feet really gives her something special.
Monogatari Series – Sengoku Nadeko – Medusa ver
In the anime I quickly started to hate this crazy monster, but she’s also insanely cute with the white hair and little girl attitude. They did a great job with capturing that and added a great base.
Amagi Brilliant Park – Sento Isuzu – Tiramie – Pirates ver
Part of Isuzu’s appeal in this certain episode actually was that she didn’t feel flustered by wearing that outfit or after being captivated by pirates XD Still she looks great as the strong, developed girl she is and the expression makes her cuter. As little extra she steps on Tiramie.
Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata – Sawamura Spencer Eriri
This looks seriously very good. From the beautifully sculpted hair to the cute pouting expression or the nicely articulated pose the sweet Enri appears like a great figure.
Kantai Collection ~Kan Colle~ – Bismarck
This time the german ships are in the roadmap of GSC’s Kancolle figures, I think they could have made a few more japanese ships before, so I will say “bye, bye possible Samidare figure”. Bismarck has some good potential, the colors should come out great.
Kantai Collection ~Kan Colle~ – Prinz Eugen
“Einen schönen Tag” Prinz Eugen is a super cute cruiser I unfortunately don’t have in my fleet. I actually have fun to mess her up in PvP matches ahaha. The pose is a little static, but it should turn out nice, nevertheless.
Shokugeki no Souma – Nakiri Erina
I haven’t seen this anime nor do I know if it’s entertaining, nevertheless I think that Nakiri Erina looks interesting on her throne.
Kantai Collection ~Kan Colle~ – Yuudachi – Kai Ni
Yuudachi rolls out to accompany Shigure I’m really happy that she was announced now, in Kai Ni she’s one of the prettiest fleet girls in the Destroyer class. I would like to put her next to my already ordered Shigure.
Kantai Collection ~Kan Colle~ – Ooyodo – Nendoroid
I rarely buy Nendoroids, I’m always scared of breaking them. But I actually like to see them in pictures. Ooyodo looks sweet, I love her glasses and the cute spunky expression of her.
Bakuon!! – Suzunoki Rin
This girl on motorbike looks so cute, she’s only scaled 1/10 , maybe this also has some positive aspects like being space saving or easy to transport for photography.
Granblue Fantasy – Io – Manatsu no Chiisa na Lady
A small, girly girl with big sunflower, so cute o(≧∇≦o) I totally like her gentle facial expression and the innocent feel she emits.
The Idolmaster (TV Animation) – Miura Azusa
Phats casual idols have been quite nice so far and this looks great, too. I still like the first idols more, especially Azusa was a character I liked. In this prototype, the figure shows soft facial features and nice clotthes.
Kantai Collection ~Kan Colle~ – Naka – Kai Ni
Some folks say that Naka chan is somewhat annoying, but I like her cheerful personality and after Kai Ni remodel she looks really fancy and sparkling. I’m glad that QuesQ makes a cute figure of her.
Kantai Collection ~Kan Colle~ – Takao
Takao always stands in Atago’s shadow, especially in the Game she’s timid and a little sad. In the anime though, she’s more open and bold. As I noticed this figure I was surprised, wow! Takao looks beautiful, I’m definetely interested in this happy girl. She would probably look good next to Atago from Max Factory.
Kantai Collection ~Kan Colle~ – Nagato
Ahh, I should have waited for this figure instead of ordering a small Figfix ;D Nagato is my favorite battleship in Kancolle followed by Littorio and Yamashirou. I like her tall appearance and the overall design.
Aquarion Logos – Tsukigane Maia
I don’t know this character yet, but Maia looks quite appealing there.
Shingeki no Bahamut – Mystery Warden-Spinne
Thats a cute Bahamut figure, I love her nice looking outfit with all the details and colors.
Freesia – 4-Leaves – Tony’s Heroine Collection
Thats the third butterfly heroine, the first one was cheerful, the second one was sexy. Fresia is probably the cute Yandere, I wasn’t especially interested in the others, but Freesia is what I probably would like.
Fate/kaleid liner PRISMA☆ILLYA – Prisma Illya
Illya shows a great smile, but where are her clothes!? It feels like there is a new loli figure trend, since Orchid Seed manufacturered a rather questionable posed little girl. Amakuni follows with two little girls from Prisma Illya with only a little more cloth and something too cover their petite chests. I feel slightly uncomfortable with young characters presented like this, but there should be a number of fans ^^.
Fate/kaleid liner PRISMA☆ILLYA – Kuro
At least Kuro has panties on ok in a inapropriate seductive fashion XD Is it just me or do the belly buttons look strange with this pointy circle, maybe they should eat more.
Plastic Memories – Isla
Without knowing this character I instantly felt drawn to it, I like the twintails, the pose and her sad gaze.
Tengen Toppa Gurren-Lagann – Yoko Littner – Bunny ver
Yoko returns as big bunny suite figure. Yeah that is probably something she can wear.
Strike Witches Operation Victory Arrow – Charlotte Yeager – Bunny Style
That might be something, I would be interested in, it’s a cool outfit
Nico Robin – Portrait Of Pirates Limited Edition – Ver.BB
I always wondered why the adult Nami and Robin turned out like this in One Piece, isn’t the character designer a bit greedy. Nami already caught my attention with her stunning, stylized body, Robin also belongs to the BB line. I like it. While I don’t think bad about this figure, I think the figure would look nice if her boobs were only half that big.
Kantai Collection ~Kan Colle~ – Kaga – Swimsuit ver
Personally I think that this was the most elaborate figure sculpt of Wonfes. Kaga-san in a figure adaption, that pulls her out of the Kancolle universe and presents her as beautiful lady in a tasteful beach outfit. Unfortunately it’s a garage kit and probably hard to get.
Shingeki no Bahamut – Helblindi – Spellsong; Summer
Flare is a relatively new company, that surprised me with a number of interesting prototypes, Hellbindi looks very pretty with lots of fine details, I’m looking forward to see her colored.
Girls und Panzer – Akiyama Yukari
Yukari on tank cleaning duty, thats a cute scene, which was captured with this figure.
The girl looks so sweet ♡.
Sekai Seifuku ~ Bouryaku no Zvezda – Venera-sama
Thats another good looking figure of Venera sama, yet it captures a completely different mood than the others, the relaxed, lying on (bed) pose really portrays her appealing design.
Senran Kagura NewWave G-Burst – Ikaruga – Race Queen
Nothing better than the cuddly girls of Senran Kagura ( ＾◡＾)っ Ikaruga is a beautiful girl and I like that her outfit this time is different than her battle uniform. Please Vertex, make it exactly like this illustration, Ikaruga looks simply stunning.
Sangokushi Taisen – Kataiko
The fact that this figure is based on an illustration of F.S. makes me interested in this figure prototype. The artist charakters always have distinctive, pretty faces and good looking body proportions, she should turn out great.
Inu x Boku SS – Roromiya Karuta
I guess everyone likes Karuta, so a cute figure of her definetely will find my approval.
Shinmai Maou no Keiyakusha – Naruse Mio
I haven’t seen the anime beyond episode 01 and after seeing several gif of the specials I rather keep it unfinished. Nevertheless wieselhead would not be wieselhead if I had no love for busty anime heroines （*´▽｀*）. Mio looks like she is in a good mood and her pose is sexy and confident.
Dungeon ni Deai o Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Darou ka – Hestia
After inspecting my Sonico figure from Kaitendoh, I developed a positive attitude torwards the company, it’s nice that they will make a figure of the short, but curvy goddess Hestia. The anime unfortunately took a bad turn, but Hestia is fun. With the prototypes different colored top the option to castoff is at least indicated.
Now we reach the 18+ adult material from Wonfes,
actually I didn’t put anything too explicit in this post,
but advance at your own nosebleed risk!
Maken-Ki! – Nijou Aki
Orchid Seed is slow with finalizing their prototypes from years ago as always, it’s not surprising anymore. At least one more positive news from their booth was the beautiful Aki sensei, fully painted and appealing. I just noticed that she is wearing no panties, oh damn. Well, don’t mind XD Since I like her face a lot I would order her without a second thought.
Mahou Shoujo – Nitta Yui
Last year I complained a little about Yui’s facial expression, but now she was painted and everything looks nice, she looks really good now.
Original Character – Sexual Stewardess
Original Character – Yaegashi Nan
This figure is more slapstick than ecchi, I think its very sweet.
Original Character – Alice Exhibition
My buddy Miette likes it, it must be good.
Original Character – abec
A two character figure is something new, if these figures would be sold seperately, I rather would get the one with the green hair. Hell as if I would ever get something that lewd (//∇//).
Natsu no Kemono – Chitose
As I saw this last time as unpainted prototype, I was captivated by her lovelyness. This Wonfes my first reaction to her now painted prototype was pure shock, something was off. Later my sense as photographer told me that the figure probably suffered from a misplaced lightsource. In this picture I erased the light reflection between her eyes and she looks far better.
Shinazu No Himegimi – Mary
This one got painted, too for this Wonfes. Last year this vampire loli was among my favorites. Now fully painted I actually lost all my guts to eventually purchase her. On the question of craftsmanship she actually looks fantastic, no doubt. But she’s just too nude and young in appearance ( p′︵‵。).
Original Character – Ishikei
This alls so dirty, I wonder who is at fault, me or the manufacturers, this one is a new project of Rocket Boy, based on Ishikei’s art. Illustrator Ishikei is a woman just to let you know.
Kyonyuu Fantasy Gaiden – Shamsiel Shahal
I recently rewatched the Kyonyuu Fantasy OVA and Shamsiel is probably the cutest Succubus ever (⺣◡⺣)♡*. She definetely deserves a good figure. Lechery already made figure, but it was smaller and less detailed than this one.
Another interesting ero figure announcement came from Mouse Unit, who will make a PVC figure adaption of their Ushiko figure, but the picture was super crap! XD
That was my little wonfes impression, I saw some really good things, I hope you too 😉
There wasn’t a ton shown off at Wonder Festival that really ignited my loins, which makes me wonder if I’m just getting older or if the current trends in figure collecting are passing me by. I guess I’m not the hugest Kantai Collection fan out there and I didn’t pay a ton of attention to the stuff, but I was a little disappointed that no one showed off a Ta-class figures, as far as I know. I was also surprised at how many Tony Taka figures there were that I liked. I said a long time ago that I was getting tired of a lot of his figures but I guess I’ve completely changed my mind since then. The fairy girl is nice, and I also liked the two ballerina girls. I think Flare might just be the newest incarnation of Yamato; they’re working with a lot of the same sculptors, including Cerberus Project and REFLECT. I haven’t paid a ton of attention but I wonder if that peculiarly elaborate Saber figure (that seems to have been designed by Huke) is getting a lot of hype? Five years ago, that would’ve been the hottest figure in the hobby; I wonder if time has passed that style by as well.
Yeah, I know what you mean. While I saw a number of attractive figures, there was a limited amount of must haves.
Looking at the numbers of figures I have at home, this reduced interest is no bad thing.
Partially this has to do with our (Im not young anymore,too) age, figures of random Highschool girls become a bit uninteresting, and skin revealing loli’s completely meet my incomprehension, although there are still exceptions. The Kancolle popularity in figuers is on the decreasing path now, they already skipped to the german characters. Don’t worry, everyone likes the Taka designs to a certain degree, it are very pretty characters, even though the faces show limited variety, there are still great figures. Lol Yamato changes names like underwear XD Mhhh, was there a Saber figure, unfortunately I don’t know it.
I’m one of the rare guys who isn’t too big on the KanColle stuffs, so unfortunately, that applies to more than half of this list, lol. Dat Nico figure though-all those details.
Huh, no it aren’t that many, seriously XD
hmmm I will recount the amount now, prepare yourself, lol
Yeah Nico apparently is a christmas tree, but it’s cool.
I were only 17% Kancolle ;p
Haha, I see another Sonico coming into your collection! And yes, I think Nico Robin’s boobs are too exaggerated! Oboro Muramasa – Yuzuruha caught my eye too! Very elaborated. Very well crafted! You’ve got good taste =)
Yes, I really did consider to order no new one this year, but it can’t be helped with such a good figure ♡
Haha quite a body development since One Piece started 😀 aside from that she looks quite pretty.
She looks like a sister of Kongiku, only somehow more lively and vibrant, I would buy this figure.
Better buy her early or I will have to pay even more on the aftermarket like with Kongiku (;﹏;)
