It’s been a while since I’ve done a semi-obscure import review, and with Wonder Fest coming up soon I thought I’d take a look at a couple of figures I picked up last month. Rounding up my Revoltech Takeya collection are two characters that depart from the look of previous releases.
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.
Today’s our last day of WonderFest coverage. The big companies are out of the way, and now the spot light is on all the talented individuals who create their own amazing toys, garage kits, figure add-ons, and accessories. You’ll find a bit of everything in these last galleries.
I’m getting back into some of the non-Transformers imports today and finishing up the last (so far) character in Takeya Takayuki's Buddhist Statue Collection. Like the Buddhist figures before him, Jikokuten is an impressive specimen of how detailed paint/sculpting can be on a smaller scaled figure.
Aside from way too many Transformers figures, I haven’t had a lot of imports this month. But I did just get my fifth Revoltech Takeya figure in this week, so I guess that’s my sign to get part four’s review out of the way.
