Hello my fellow collectors and figure enthusiasts! The power of Wonder Festival has literally overwhelmed me once again, and here I am writing about the Summer 2018 edition of the festival; this time not with a real event report –for that you can check the links I collected for you at the end of this post, but with something more suitable for the new the version of the blog.
About that, I eventually decided to launch it although I previously decided to take this blog on pause for some more time because in the end there’s no better time than Wonfes time to get back to this insane passion I proudly have and passionately cultivate since years now.
This editions brings me quite a lot of material to add to my endless wish list, but only because I adore figures too much. In any case, I managed to cut my list to a decent amount of items, basically all those figures I’m either sure I will order once I can do so, or others I’m curious about and I might consider getting.
Kirara Fantasia – 1/7 Scale Figure Hifumi Takimoto: Wizard Ver. (Good Smile Company)
Hifumi is my biggest obsession (along with No Game No Life and Hatsune Miku) lately, thus I was really looking forward to this figure since it was announced about five months ago.
From fantasy role-playing game Kirara Fantasia — which crosses over characters from various manga series published in Manga Time Kirara family of magazines and was released in Japan for iOS and Android devices in Japan in December 2017, Hifumi here is a lovely wizard I could not miss in my collection!
Fate/Grand Order – Scale Figure Saber/Altria Pendragon: Heroic Spirit Formal Dress (Good Smile Company)
Saber won’t stop to amaze me, ever. I always had a thing for this one, and my collection of figures dedicated to her can’t do anything but to keep growing. Now, I’m not really sure I will get this one for sure yet, but I’m surely interested in this Heroic Spirit Formal Dress ver. figure.
To LOVEru Darkness – Scale Figure Kotegawa Yui & Momo Belia Deviluke (Amakuni, Hobby Japan)
Momo and Yui are my favorite characters in To LOVEru. I adore both the girls and I completely love these exotic outfits, so this pair will most likely sit on one of my cabinet shelves one day.
Love Live! Sunshine!! – Scale Figure Kunikida Hanamaru School Uniform ver. (Alter)
I don’t like idols in general, nor the whole concept, but I adore cuteness and quality. That’s why this figure of Hanamaru by Alter piques my interest. I liked the very similar prize version of the girl, but a scale item which is also made by one of my favorite manufacturers is something I can’t really ignore.
No Game No Life – 1/7 Scale Figure Shiro (Phat!)
Shiro! I’m on my way collecting all the Shiro figures; almost. I adore this character and No Game No Life is my guilty, colorful pleasure. She will join the other Shiro(s) figures in my collection because I will never have enough of this super smart and utterly cute silly, little girl!
No Game No Life – Scale Figures Jibril & Stephanie Dola B-style & S-style (FREEing)
Along with Shiro I have a decent obsession –although less severe, for both Jibril and Stephanie. I have these four figures on my “maybe” list because I need to see how they will actually look before to decide, but I’m confident they all will look quite gorgeous next to the S-style and B-style figures of Shiro I ordered.
Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo! 2 1/7 Scale Figure Aqua (Kadokawa)
Aqua is interesting to me, mostly for the character design –because I don’t really like her as a character (she’s too silly and quite annoying). But she’s lovely and I find her cute, and I have ordered her figma and I have her Nendoroid… so why not keeping an eye on her while I am at it? It’s free, isn’t it?
I don’t think I need to explain the following, because Miku is one of my recent and strongest obsessions while anything NGNL is able to catch my attention, completely. Thus these three Nendoroid figures are currently on my radar, with the Miku ones surely joining their sisters in my collection.
Shinkansen Henkei Robo Shinkalion – Nendoroid Hatsune Miku (Good Smile Company)
No Game No Life Zero – Nendoroid Schiwi (Good Smile Company)
Nendoroid Hatsune Miku: Magical Mirai 2017 Ver. (Good Smile Company)
