Finally, it’s that time~!
For those of you who don’t know, Wonderfest is a bi-annual event that’s held in Chiba, Japan. There’s one in the winter and there’s one in the summer. Usually, this event is to show off the upcoming figures, toys, or “garage kits” made by companies like Good Smile Company, Phat, and many others for potential customers to buy.
Naturally, since I’m more interested in nendoroids more than anything, this year I turned to the My Figure Collection’s usermade list about the upcoming nendoroids this season (thank you for the all the hard work)!
Of course, I’m going to pick and choose nendoroids I personally want most this year but there’s actually a slight change to this year’s wishlist. You’ll see why when it comes…
Here are the figures I’m going to get, somehow someway!!
I was waiting for this day to come…!! Finally, Aoba won’t be alone! I mean, I still plan to get Noiz eventually but he’s not my first choice. Koujaku is. And the fact that he’s coming out soon (add the fact that Aoba has a naked torso) makes me… want to react certain scenes from the game…≖‿≖ Ehehehe….
Recently, I admitted that Mako is my favorite “Kill la Kill” character but I didn’t get her nendoroid. Mostly, though, I was hoping that they would release this version of her and yay! They’re going to! So you know what that means: she’s definitely going to come home to my collection, somehow!! She’s already cosplaying Jotaro from “Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure” so I want to see if I can have Tomoko cosplay Mako cosplaying Jotaro – but mostly so I can finally say I have a Mako nendoroid…!!!
So, let’s talk about figmas. These three are something that’s completely out of left field for me – I can’t believe they’re actually coming out with them! Maybe this might mean nendoroids down the line (and I really really hope so) but if there’s any CLAMP work I wouldn’t feel ashamed about it’s this series! It’s hard enough finding merchandise, especially cheap ones, so this will probably be as cheap as it goes.
Needless to say, these three breaks my usual nendoroid list. Normally, I’m sort of “eh” about figmas but with “Magic Knight Rayearth” on the line: I must get these at any costs.
I got to be honest, though, there’s really not a lot of nendoroids I actually really want but for figmas, well…
Are we surprised that, right after the nendoroid line of μ’s, they’re going to release figma versions of them? No? I really hope not because Good Smile Company just released the full list of μ’s figmas they’re going to release: all of them. Again, is this any real surprise? Since these are all going to be school uniform versions, I imagine they’re going to release them as per song (like music video costumes).
God rest our Love Live souls…
I really want to try to get them, but I know I’m probably going to miss quite a few because, uh, that’s a lot of money I don’t have (but wished I did). Granted, if I had a little help from some friends… (Rin Hoshizora, Maki Nishikino, Nozomi Toujou, Kotori Minami, Nico Yazawa, Eli Ayase, Umi Sonoda, Hanayo Koizumi, & Honoka Kousaka)
Here are some nendoroids I wouldn’t mind having but they’re not exactly priority.
Well, I’ve always liked Celty but she really isn’t a real favorite of mine (I’m just not that into Durarara other than the music and Shizou) but this nendoroid really is cute. I really like how they sculpted her and gave her a little scythe! I wonder if they’re going to make her motorcycle come separate since that’s kind of iconic.
I’m not too surprised they made a nendoroid of her (especially since the anime just wrapped up last year) but it looks like she’s moveable – meaning she’s not going to completely stiff like how other nendoroids are. I like her character but she really isn’t my favorite from the series (Mimori Tougou is the best) but this one is kinda unique~!
Ah, yes, Raiden. I almost forgot to put him down! As someone asked on his MFC page: “So he’ll come with a naked body right?” there’s no reason not to get this one if only for the novelty! I’m still kind of weirded out they’re releasing Metal Gear Solid nendoroids but hey – I guess this means something more for the fans, right?
Though, if he does come out with a naked body, then well, I’ll have to get it…!! ≖‿≖
Add this to the “things I didn’t expect to have a nendoroid” list. I’m not quite sure how this is going to be made as a nendoroid since Kirby is, well, Kirby. There’s not really much you can do with it. I mean, it’s still really cute and if it’s under $20, I’d probably get it for the novelty. I mean, who wouldn’t want a cute pink ball among the rest of these nendoroid cuties!?
