Wonder Festival Summer 2009 Coverage! (UPDATE #3)

054Finally, Wonder Festival has arrived! This time around, Wonfes will take place in Makuhari Messe instead of the usual Tokyo Big Sight.

Hobby Stock and Akiba Hobby have already posted a lot of coverage from the event. SO MANY EXCITING FIGURES! A LOT OF DO WANT! I don’t even know where to begin. I can already hear my wallet weep.

Extensive image coverage after the jump. Very image heavy.

FIRST, SENGOKU BASARA FIGURE NEWS!

054
THIS.  A few days ago Kaiyodo made a post over at the Union Creative International website and showed us the silhouettes of these two upcoming Masamune and Yukimura Revoltechs as part of their new Yamaguchi line-up, to which they also mentioned they’d unveil them in the upcoming WONFES 2009. AND HERE THEY ARE. THEY LOOK SO GAR AND FABULOUS. I’m not one to collect articulated figures like Revoltech’s or Figma’s (I prefer scaled figures) but since I’m a whore for this series they’ll go on my GET-LIST. ETA: More images of the SenBASA Revoltechs here!

However, I’m more ecstatic about these! Good Smile Company will be releasing Sengoku BASARA Nendoroids; Masamune & Yukimura. NENDOROIDS. They look so fucking adorable and cute! WILL DEFINITELY BUY THESE. /SQUEEING FOREVER. That was really unexpected, GSC. Release date for these is Spring 2010!

NEXT. K-ON! FIGURE MADNESS!

002-1
1/8 Akiyama Mio by Alter. The painted version looks absolutely amazing and both Mio and Yui are wonderfully sculpted. Scheduled for November 2009 release.

001
1/8 Hirasawa Yui by Alter. Oh Alter, you’ve outdone yourselves.
I was honestly surprised to see this. I mean, I was expecting more K-ON! figures by Alter but not this soon. Scheduled for December 2009 release. And nevermind the price! GET-LIST. Now to wait for Mugi and Ritsu! I’m betting Ritsu will be more expensive because of her drum set.

Late 2009-2010 looks very promising with all the new figure releases! And also enough time for me to save up, orzzz. Also, I only posted images of figures that caught my eye and then some. The rest of the figures that were showcased can be found via the links above. This post is all over the place. I might come back and edit it every now and then lolol.

    Oh so those Basara action figures are Revoltech? I hadn’t seen the previous announcement so I wasn’t sure who they were from when I saw the coloured images. They look pretty good, and while Revoltech isn’t my favourite action figure line, their quality is usually decent. I wonder if all six swords will be removable?

      Yes they are! It would have been nice if GSC/Max Factory jumped on the bandwagon and done some Basara Figma’s as I prefer their articulated action figures more.

    The Lineage II figure; when do you think that will be released? Damnnnnnn. I have the Human female wizard and it’s pretty badass. So seeing the female elf? I can’t wait. :D
