Figure News: Wonder Festival industry update III

  • Kaiyodo’s official Wonder Festival 2007 Summer site is now online, including information on the items available in this iteration’s Wonder Showcase (a BURNING SPIRIT collaboration between Kaiyodo and a selection of individual sculptors who the company feels are worth showcasing regardless of popularity) and the lineup of uber BOME kits for sale at the Kaiyodo booth (Shiranui Mai, Ryomou Shimei, Kanu Unchou, Chouun Shiryou).
    In past years Kaiyodo has released limited edition figures of their Wanda and Reset mascot characters to commemorate the event, but it seems that there are no plans for them this time around.

And that’s a wrap! Any further industry news will probably appear in individual posts unless there’s enough of it to warrant another omnibus update like this. Five days and counting…

    I’m loving the Feane kit- all I have to say is-
    “I like big buts and I can not lie”
    “You other brothas can’t deny”
    “When a girl walks in with an itty bitty waist and a round thang in your face”
    “YOU GET SPRUNG!!”
    :p

    I wish they’d make these ‘limited edition’ figures internationally available…as for the rest, I’m not that bothered as yet. If they start showing some real promising PVC figures soon, then it’ll be worth worrying about…
