2012′s winter Wonder Festival has begun and already proves phenomenal – unleashing a vast assortment of deliciously fresh figures, ranging from ero-suggestive lolis of Haganai, to ever-present Hatsune Miku.
There’s some unexpected flavors of the expected to be seen, such as the hardcore rendition of the world’s most renowned mahou shoujo, Madoka, alongside several new varieties of digital singing sensation Hatsune Miku, heavy armed Black Rock Shooters, and more – however most of what Wonder Festival offers in this first coming of the year is entirely far beyond the anticipated. An uncolored Shinobu of Kizumonogatari for one – yet that’s not even scratching the surface.
Amongst a plethora of Persona figures, one will find an Accel World nendoroid, still uncolored, though allowing one to sample the heroine and her pig-like companion, our main character. Making up for the pathetic Beach Queen, AnoHana’s Menma puts on a mizugi once more – and indeed the outcome is far more of flavor. On the other hand, remedial action series Guilty Crown’s equally as lacking leading female makes a debut not too surprising, nor revered – though one couldn’t care either way as just like the anime, she fails to satisfy.
However, a figure which does the eye well is the Megurine Luka piece based off the fine illustrations of internationally recognized artist Tony. Likewise, a full collection of Carnival Phantasm female nendoroids is quite more than one could have asked for – and continuing along, one will see a Figma of Kiritsugu Fate/Zero, then further below, enough idols to make a harem with.
Yet it is the friendless figures of Haganai which one simply cannot keep their eyes off of – with nothing announced earlier, one was one the brink of losing hope, however sure enough, here they are being shown-off. And not only this, of the two prototypes up for admiring, one even contains an element of erotic invitation from the series’ loli characters. The figure honestly looks to need some work in the coloring – yet it is still a demo model being showcased, and the pose definitely looks great.
Whilst lolis are usually at the top of an otaku’s priority list, nothing can compete with Yozora who even when fully clothed is absolutely stunning – not to mention, the zettai ryouiki she offers does much to treat the eyes and mind alike. To the left of her, one can see a slab a meat is to be prepared soon as well for those who have more carnivorous tastes.
Even after seeing all this, Wonder Festival still amps an otaku’s excitement even more – a poster promises a 1/7 figure from Kotobukiya based on the film of legendary western action anime Trigun. Surely this is one of the rare few male figures many an otaku will find worth buying – yet there could perhaps be a figure of the film’s sexy gun-slinging heroine as well. And on the topic of action, one will notice Symphogear is not simply making a debut, but completely storming the realm of plastic craft as it is to come in nendoroid, Figma, and even lofty PVC form.
All delectable displays of plastic female curves considered, the pinnacle of it all is the bikini fitted harem of iDOLM@STER girls – Haruka attracting the eye with oppai, Miki Miki with her legs and thighs, and Makoto merely through her flat chest. Certainly a sight enough to leave many of us anxious for the coming months.
