Over the weekend, IAT’s very own Robert Baldwin (a.k.a. Dorkey) was kind enough to brave the cold weather and long lines to bring us coverage of the newest and coolest toys that will be coming out of Japan this year. So check out Part 1 of our Winter Wonder Fest galleries, with more to come later this week.
We’ve got a lot of pics and more coming, so to help keep everything organized, we’ve broken up the different companies into pages. This page will serve as the table of contents throughout our coverage.
Page 2 – Kaiyodo – We kick off our coverage with a look at some of the new Assemble Borg planned for this year. Then there’s a peak at Revoltech #100 in translucent purple, a new version of Sci-Fi Revoltech Daimajin, and the amazing looking Black Vash the Stampede. We also get to see what Kaiyodo is planning in its capsule figure lines, and lastly we wrap it up with the upcoming MuvLuv figure.
*Update*Page 3 – Good Smile Company (Max Factory, Figma, Phat) – Big-O, my favorite anime, is getting a slew of new products from the Max Gokin versions of Big O, Duo, and Fau, to an amazing Figma of R. Dorothy. I couldn’t be more excited, and my wallet couldn’t be sadder. Also, a nice gallery of some new Kamen Rider figures and a look at Figma #100: a new Miku Hatsune.
Page 4 – Fewture – Fewture has some great stuff planned for this year including an awesome, but very expensive, Sword of Garo, some Ultraman figures, and a nicely detailed line of aircraft and vehicles from the various Ultraman series.
*Update*Page 5 – Medicos, J-Factory, and Wonder Showcase – If you can’t wait for the new JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure figures, then you’ll definitely want to check out the Medicos gallery. J-Factory shows off its Xavorger figures. While the Wonder Showcase has a great look at Dimension Diver’s Aegis figure and an incredibly cute Miku statue.
*Update*Page 6 – Vendors & Miscellaneous – Some independent vendors give their own unique versions of Assemble Borg (I love that Blue Beetle looking one!), a really cool submarine, and various other figures that are pretty snazzy too.
*Update*Page 7 – Kappas – Kappas are mischievous reptile-like water sprites who love cucumbers, and there’s a whole gallery dedicated to different artist’s interpretations of the little creatures. Very interesting.
Don’t forget to check out our upcoming exclusive Q & A with Kaiyodo, Max Factory, and Medicos.
Thanks again to Robert for all his work in making this coverage possible.
A thanks also goes out to Kaiyodo, Max Factory, and all the companies who made this possible.
