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.
While most of us were focused on SDCC last weekend, the Japanese toy industry was celebrating their own show-and-tell shindig at Summer Wonder Festival 2011. Our man in Japan, Robert Baldwin, was there to capture the latest and greatest from Kaiyodo, The Good Smile Co., and the other manufacturers who attended.
Just before Winter Wonder Festival 2011, we put out an open call for questions to ask the various companies that attended the show. Our own Robert Baldwin caught up with many of the company representatives and got a few interesting answers and some big news concerning the future of the Sci-Fi Revoltech line.
Over the weekend IAT’s very own Robert Baldwin (a.k.a. Dorkey, on our forums) 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.
In our Green Room, forum member Dorkey has been posting links to his site's coverage of Wonder Festival 2010 (Summer). His site is in Japanese, but the pictures speak all languages. Check out his links starting on page 18 of our Japanese Import Theatre thread.
