Unfortunately I don’t have much time to post more reviews, but I’ll try to get to it soon.
For now some of Wonfes ups and downs for me!
Twice a year every figure collector holds his breath and awaints the newest announcements. One of these days has come today.
I must say, that there aren’t many announcements this time that made me really excited. But there are figures that took me by surprise and figures that completely destroyed my hopes.
I’m not surprised that this Wonfes is too dominated by Fate series. GSC, MF, ALter and more announced tons of Fate figures. Other than that there’s a lot of KanColle (again), Saekano, tons of new Mikus and of course Touken Ranbu. Fortunately the companies didn’t forget about less popular series.
As every top list you can find on this blog this one is also a subjective choice of mine.
Let’s start with the very end of my tops
11# Odin Sphere – Mercedes (Phat! Company)
I just love these Phat’s parforms. They are so cute I can’t say no to them!
10# Oikawa Tooru Unifor Ver. nendoroid
Tooru-chan striking again!
9# Slayers -Lina nendoroid
Finally some love to one of my beloved childhood series!
8# Nier Automata – YorHa (Square Enix/Flare)
Finally SE lets someone else make their figures. Flare is a great choice here!
7# D.Gray-Man – Kanda Yuu (Aniplex)
Another Aniplex exclusive coming! They really know how to get my money.
6# Fate/Grand Order – Ishtar (Aniplex)
And again exclusive. Announced some time ago and finally with a prototype! I know I won’t get her, additional costs like shipping and customs would make me a beggar. Still she looks amazing!
5# Kakegurui – Jabami Yumeko (Kotobukiya)
An amazing looking prototype. I got hooked on the anime, it’s really exciting (a bit strange though) so I’m happy to see a fabolous Yumeko so soon.
4# Fate/Grand Order – Lancer (Orange Rouge)
Finally a proper scale of the second best servant ever ❤
#3 Odin Sphere – Gwendolyn (aquamarine)
The best Gwen so far. The pose is just awesome, so dynamic! Can’t wait to see the painted prototype. Do your best Aquamarine!
#2 Fate/Stay Night – Matou Sakura (Aniplex)
Please Aniplex stop…you just know that I love kimonos, don’t you?
1# Fate/Grand Order – Gilgamesh (Myethos)
Ok, Myethos wins the whole show. The most exciting piece of this Wonfes’!
Myethos is a chinese company, so most of their products aren’t on the MFC database, but they are a really fascinating company. Their projects are really creative and the quality is also very good. I think you could compare them with Kotobukiya. Anyways, just take my money Myethos!
But unfortunately there are some complete failures too. Actually I think this is the first time ever I felt so dissappointed with Wonfes’ announcements
A super Sexy Gilgamesh, that was announced last year I suppose, finally gets a paited prototype! Just take my mo….Uhm…..what the hell is this?!
And a figure that I got just too excited about and that is the biggest let down ever.
I love Code Geass and C.C. is my holy waifu, so I was really happy about getting a proper figure with some lovely pose from the anime…Well, MegaHouse crushed all my hopes. I know that boobs sell the best, but making a character look secy at a push is just not my taste. MH tends to do that too often lately. Just a big NO!
In the end there’s nothing too unexpected about this WF edition. But out of all the figures announced I was able to find the ones I really love. Fortunately not too many, my wallet is still safe!
Hope you also found some exciting figures this time!
