As we were enjoying the afterglow/aftermath of SDCC 2012 a couple weeks ago, another important toy event was taking place half way around the world. Our man in Japan, Robert Baldwin, was there gathering the latest news, pictures, and even a few rumors from WonderFest!
One figure I’ve been looking forward to for a while is the Giant God Warrior from Good Smile Co’s Figma line. Not only is he a visually interesting character, but he’s also the first collaboration between the Figma line and Studio Ghibli!
I hope everyone had a good long Memorial Day weekend. I’m kicking off this week with another recently arrived import figure. So let’s take a look at Figma Pit, the angelic protagonist from Nintendo’s Kid Icarus franchise.
We're finishing off our Winter Wonder Fest 2013 coverage with my favorite part of the show. Sure it's great seeing what new toys to expect from the big companies, but I really enjoy discovering what the incredibly talented individual artists have been working on.
While we were gawking at all the news from Toy Fair, Japan was in the midst of hosting Winter Wonder Festival. Luckily for us at IAT, Robert Baldwin braved the cold temperatures and large crowds to bring us the latest news from our favorite Japanese companies in 2013.
Hope everyone had a good Christmas and New Year. While Noisy gets his new house of boxes organized, I’m back with my regular Tuesday review. So bear with me as I get back into the swing of things with a look at Figma’s Skyward Sword Link.
