Wonder Festival 2013 Winter Picks

A few days ago, figure collectors drooled over the incredible figures displayed at the recently held Wonder Festival 2013 Winter Edition. Considered as the biggest figure event in the world, top figure manufacturers all over the Japan attended the event to showcase all of their great and upcoming figures this year.

      @Wieselhead: Hahahahaha! Looks like our wallets will “bleed” because of this large number of awesome figures T_T I really love Sonico’s Tiger Hoodie version! :D

    I’m likely get that MF Sheryl Nome figure. It looks really awesome though I don’t any figures of her. Thankfully its not an Ichiban Kuji exclusive. The neko coat Sonico looks awfully cute and so does the cheerleader Sonico. Sonico is slowly becoming Miku/Tamaki/Kanu tier for her figure line.

      @Bumbayker: Yeah, that Sheryl Nome figure sure is awesome. It’s a jaw dropping figure in my opinion. I think I’ll prioritize on securing Miku (Deep Sea Girl Ver.), Sonico (Tiger Hoodie Ver.), the great Sheryl Nome of course, and that Fiona from Border Break. But honestly, I want to have them all! hahahaha! I hope all of these figures have some kind of a huge gap when it comes to their scheduled release T_T Wallets will be shattered…

    Sheryl Nome (Macross Frontier) figure looks awesome, although I know barely anything about the series. But thats what I love about this hobby I’ve discovered good series just from seeing a cool figure and looking it up. Same goes for Fiona (Border Break) I know nothing about her but I want her.

      @Andrew: Exactly! Most of the figures I have here are characters which I really don’t know. Actually, my anime watching habits were all based on figures that I purchase. I always think that if a certain character has a figure treatment, it also means that the anime series she was based on is popular. This is how I discover the anime “Gurren Lagann” which is one of my favorite anime. I discovered it when I bought a Yoko figure from Kotobukiya :D

    That Maou figure from Maoyuu has to be mine ><…can't wait to see her fully painted, it already looks awesome and Kotobukiya's quality and details are amazing. The Kuroyukihime figure from GSC also looks awesome, can't wait to see her painted too :P…so many figures, so little money ; _ ;

    @Dobol: I totally agree with your picks! And I second your “so many figures, so little money” statement hahaha! I think we all do! T_T
