Wonfes bingo + reactions!Wonfes bingo + reactions!

Hello again everyone!

The tl;dr version: I'm a fan of Fate, Touken Ranbu, and Persona, so I had a pretty good Wonfes! If you're not interested in a fangirl's ramblings, go ahead and click that back button.

________

I don't always make a bingo card, but this time I was on vacation and decided to make one to fill a little time.

Here's what I'd come up with:

the top two rows were figures we already knew were in the works, and the bottom two were things i, personally, would have liked to see; i have varying degrees of faith in my ability to gauge what’s popular or likely so I was excited to see what happened. (and yes, I know, I was setting myself up for failure by dedicating so much space to granblue, but with a an event featuring wildly popular characters on the horizon for the game's 5th anniversary, I figured it wouldn't hurt to dream big...)

And so, here's how I did!

I actually got quite a few more spaces than I expected to, which was nice! I was able to tick off a few spaces before the event even opened, thanks to teasers from various companies...

In the end I did kinda shoot myself in the foot by dedicating a whole row to non-garage kit Granblue figures but… Granblue represents a pretty significant chunk of what I care about these days lmao. (Some optimistic part of me wonders if they’re holding off gbf figure announcements until the 5th anniversary in a few weeks…). I did see quite a few nice Granblue garage kits floating around in the tags, so there's a small part of me hoping maybe they'll get picked up for an official release... i know, i know, in my dreams!

While there were many announcements/updates I was happily surprised by, there were a few things I’d been really hoping to see but didn’t…. namely, a Kotobukiya scale figure of Dawn. They’ve done all the girl Pokemon protags except Dawn and Crys so far; since I don’t really think they’re going to make one of Crys at this point, I was hoping we’d finally get Dawn… alas, Koto’s big Pokemon announcement this wonfes was…. Professor Oak??? ITEM #806057 To say I’m disappointed would an understatement. (like, I get it, I get why they went with Oak. Kanto hype is big right now, and his voice actor just died recently. I get it. I’m still REALLY disappointed that I'll have to keep waiting for Dawn)

Disappointments aside, we had some pretty big winners this wonfes!!! Here’s my highlights:

Announcements

There were some pretty huge announcements this time around!! ITEM #806041 and ITEM #806054 are all a fangirl could really hope for, and I’m really, really happy to see that GSC decided to make the whole main party in P5 (esp considering they’ve skimped on Persona figures before… no, I am still not over never getting a nendo of P4 protag). I may be considering quitting figmas, but I may also get the Akechi one for my Joker, who knows? Nendo Akechi is gonna be an insta-buy though holy shit.

Also… all 12 Hypmic boys were announced as nendoroids!! I actually had a vague premonition a few weeks ago that we’d get Hypmic figures this wonfes, but not like this!!!!! (I put Jakurai ITEM #806105 on my highlights bc he’s the only one I care about, but I'm glad that all 12 have been confirmed!)

I put down ITEM #806027 not bc I’m personally interested in it (I've never played Okami), but I have friends who were really excited about it. Also, I am kinda curious how they’re going to make a nendoroid out of a wolf!

Finally, I’m really glad that GSC could announce a Mutsunokami nendo with a prototype already made ;u; (ITEM #806017) that swordboy deserves more love

Unpainted Prototypes

I mentioned Mutsu already, but I was also happy with a lot of the unpainted prototypes revealed this wonfes. (Not listed above were ITEM #806055, ITEM #740117, and ITEM #739690; also worth mentioning, but not quite highlight tier).

I’m glad ITEM #792780 is coming out so cute; I liked her anime way more than I expected to! And of course, I was pleasantly surprised to see Goodsmile shouting shuake rights with their photo of ITEM #806081 and ITEM #740197 together. I probably won’t be buying them (I don’t like the poses that much) but I’m heartened to see GSC is starting to realize what Kotobukiya already knew: that if you put the ships together, the fangirls will come in droves.

The most important prototype on this list though - Flare’s Oswald ITEM #464713 emerges from the ether after 2 and a half years of silence!!! Unfortunately I’m now long past the point of caring enough about Odin Sphere to buy him (that's what you get for taking so long, Flare) but I’m still happy to see he hasn’t been forgotten or canceled.

Painted Prototypes

aaaand here’s where more of the heavy hitters come in! Romani ITEM #604000 was in a similar boat as Oswald (wonfes after wonfes passing without a single update after the initial announcement) so I’m happy to see him done and painted!! He’s cuter than I was prepared for!!

Ozymandias ITEM #775830 was bound to be a winner after his unpainted prototype was shown off at Animate Girls Fest last fall, and it looks like Megahouse knocked it out of the park this time too! He’s so handsome!!!! His pose is absolutely killer, and the paint is amazing.

Speaking of amazing paint… Altair’s Merlin ITEM #604482 is out here looking like a goddamn dream!!! I wasn’t going to buy him because I have the Nendoroid already, but scale Merlin’s hair came out so beautiful…. It really brings out the ephemeral quality of Merlin as a character. I might have to start putting money away in anticipation of his undoubtedly high price…….

Seriously.... look at him....

I’d been considering swearing off scales for a while after I preordered ITEM #604483, but these three have made me deeply reconsider!!!!

Other highlights: ITEM #731141 looks really good!! And I had to include the noodle-sitting Nitocris ITEM #754512 bc she’s just so cute!!! nito might be the closest thing I have to a fate wife

________

All in all, it was a pretty successful Wonfes for me!! Lots to look forward to and be excited about and save up for. I probably won’t buy everything on my highlights list, but nendo Jakurai and Akechi are definitely winners, and I’ll likely end up buying one of those fate scales too… or all of them….

Anyway, if you made it this far, thanks for reading! I'd love to hear y'all's Wonfes highlights too!

My hands down "Wonder festival is a win" was the Light and L 2.0 nendoroid announcements. I have been begging for the 2.0 treatment for the Death Note nendoroids for years. I saw the announcement, threw up my hands and said "yep, that's it. Best Wonderfest. Won the entire show."

Not much else that was announced I *NEED* but I wanted to slow down POS anyways so that could also be seen as a win in its own way.

Now, the bad news were still no scale figure announcement for Napoléon, Anastasia, Arjuna or the Apocrypha boys, no news regarding Carrot top-kun or, if we're talking about series or Red Blood Cell getting the shaft.

Maaaan an Arjuna scale would've been good... And now that you mention it, I'm surprised Red Blood Cell didn't get anything! A lot of people mentioned missing her too.

mintea (3 päivää sitten) #51190671I can't believe Oswald is real
Also I didn't get anything I wanted n forgot all about making a bingo board but most of my stuff was hoping for i7 and there was nothing but I think that has more to do with Banri trying to hype part 4 than figure companies.

*shaking fist* Banriiiii
(I still haven't finished part 3 tho take ur time pls banri)

Unexpected salty - no nendos of Mob Psycho( Yeah, just got hooked by it after WF, so thought something could've been, at least in comedy department, but nope. Oh well..

Man, I didn't even think about Mob Psycho, but now that you mention it--a Mob nendo would be so cute ;-; and of course I'd buy Reigen in a heartbeat. I hope one day Mob Psycho gets popular enough to have some nendos too...

Some of my expectations were meet when I saw stuff for this anime season, specially of the stuff I'm watching (Hyakkimaru my guy getting the love he deserves, baby Emma...).
Aaand well I don't really care about fate for the most part, but I was disappointed to still not see anything Enkidu to go with Gilgamesh, specially with the anime coming this year and all... GilKidu rights when.
[...]
My "biggest disappointment" was to not see Granblue figures as well. The few figures they did get are really friggin nice too. Make Belial you cowards

You're right, Enkidu would've been nice to see ;-; maybe someday

And yesss cygames give us a belial figure!!! the paradise lost crew is so popular, you could make bank!!!

I was overall happy with this wonfest. I was glad to be proved wrong and see anything Tourabu related because there are still so many characters they could be doing either into scales or nendos (Urashima Nendo and Kotetsu, for example).

Some of my expectations were meet when I saw stuff for this anime season, specially of the stuff I'm watching (Hyakkimaru my guy getting the love he deserves, baby Emma...).

Aaand well I don't really care about fate for the most part, but I was disappointed to still not see anything Enkidu to go with Gilgamesh, specially with the anime coming this year and all... GilKidu rights when.

My biggest wishful thinking was for Onmyoji figures. So far they only got Nendos and while HobbyMax did some scales, they are all exclusive to China or smth which sucks. Looking at Azur Lane getting stuff by Alter, gives me hope of other companies picking chinese titles to make awesome figures.

Still no Sora or Kirito scale figures. No updates for anything that's on the wish list. But, Sakura Kinomoto's base has been revealed, which looks really nice. So excited to see drafts for the Akane and Rikka scale figures by GSC, and a few lewd ones. Really really happy to see a White Heart scale figure in the works. Hoping that a company does Green Heart, too.

Unexpected win - nendo Amaterasu o_o

SAO Alicization trio in nendo and figma form

Salty we didn't get Red Blood Cell anything, only Garou from One punch, no figmas from Yurucamp, no prototype for Genos figma, only Emma nendoroid, but no Norman and Rey, no Naofumi scale

Unexpected salty - no nendos of Mob Psycho( Yeah, just got hooked by it after WF, so thought something could've been, at least in comedy department, but nope. Oh well..

Happy for everyone who expected Oswald prototype, it was a long time)

I'd say this Winter Wonfes 2019 was kind of a mixed bag.

On the bright side, I really liked seeing Persona 5 getting a whole lot of figures, be they scales, prizes, Figma or Nendoroids. To think that one day, we'll have the entire Phantom Thieves of Hearts group... Man, that's wicked awesome. Other good surprises were the awesome Holy Mami, some KonoSuba goods like Darkness getting a Figma or the totally unexpected loli succubus scale, the Starship Troopers Bug Figma, MHA Kyouka's scale or, if we're going into smut territory, ITEM #805802 and ITEM #806368.

Of course, I had my share of good Fate news:
-Nendoroid announcement for my man Eddie
-Scales announced for Sherlock Holmes, Brynhild, Gauvain and Scáthach-Skaði
-Paintjobs for the scales of Merlin and Ramesses II, Arthur's Figma or Nitocris' noodle stopper
-Prototype revealed for Scheherazade

Now, the bad news were still no scale figure announcement for Napoléon, Anastasia, Arjuna or the Apocrypha boys, no news regarding Carrot top-kun or, if we're talking about series or Red Blood Cell getting the shaft.

I'm pretty hyped up about the announcements for Dark Era Dazai Osamu, Futaba and finally, this one Megumin figure which really just came up out of the blue, painted and everything.

I have to say, the Ed & Al looks quite promising in colour and I love the way Kaitendoh tells us to have faith, teasing Shalltear like this XD (with a plaque that had a coloured concept art on it). Bunch of Nendoroids of characters I like were announced, hence making me start collecting Nendos. Emma Nendoroid, Dio, just to name a few.

ITEM #675949 is finally on PO, though I'm still debating the price. I'm probably still gonna get her in the end though.

For me, there were a lot of unpainted prototypes revealed. The Junjou Romantica nendoroids look crazy cute so far, Kurapika's nendoroid looks great (and I'm more interested in Chrollo than I'd like to be), Llenn's figma feels somehow slightly disappointing but hopefully she looks better in colour. I'm glad to see the figma of Tanya, but I'm not into the anime design. But the bust of her that was announced that looks more like the novel art is definitely going to be cool. The other new announcement I'm interested in is Flare's Suigintou, but I don't really love the art used in the announcement.

I don't do Wonfest Bingo but I have lots of wonderful finds this Wonfest.

My main highlight is the Dakaretai Otoko Ichii Ni Odosarete Imasu bunny boys and nendoroids. Since I miss the Ten Count bunny boys (but managed to PO the nendoroid ones), gonna save money earlier for the Dakaichii bunny boys as pair, as well as for the nendoroids. I feel heaven after FREEing announced the bunny boys and nendoroids of the series. (I don't know if you're into BL, if not, simply ignore this part of my post)

Also surprising, the Hypnosismic rapper boys nendoroids is the best, they will do all the 12 boys, but I decided to get only the three Buster Bros and Samatoki for sure instead (Ichiro is my most favorite in the series, while Samatoki looks cool, I'm a bit sucker for white-haired bishounen), or else I'm broke dead if I collect them all. (T^T)

What I can say to Winter Wonfest 2019 is very great for me, especially all those Dakaichii and Hypnosismic rapper boys announcement is heaven (and hell for my wallet and savings).
