Well, Wonder Festival happened over the weekend, which happened to coincide with chinese new year so I was with family while the event was going on but I still managed to remain mostly abreast of the situation. There was a nice spread of figures this time around and even some PVC figures which caught my [...]
You’d think that, after nearly a month since I posted about my next project, I’d have something to show for it… Well, I don’t. I place the blame mostly on the frustrating but excellent XCOM: Enemy Unknown but there’s also the fact that it’s simply a big task to clean up the parts. Progress has [...]
Man, this has been a busy week, not only are the olympics happening and causing chaos for my journeys but this was probably the biggest Wonder Festival in quite a while, on the dealer side at least. As a result, I’ve been working all week on the tomopop GK coverage and only got around to [...]
After the somewhat disappointing summer event last year, it looks like there was feeling of a return to normalcy for the winter event. Lots of new kits and a larger variety of characters on display. In fact, there wasn’t one show which dominated the dealer floor, though Haganai had a strong showing as did Madoka [...]
Wonder Festival came and went like a gust of wind this time around.

The event was intended to allow a number of guests to ask the 2 some [...]
artsook me a while to sift through the load of photos from my usual sources of GK photos. In the end, I actually asked for a fair bit this time but I was sure that I wasn’t going to get everything. Sure enough, Tokyo Hunter was only able to get about half of what I [...]
Volks have updated their Wonder Festival page with a new shot of Saber Lily in COLOUR!!
She definitely looks much better in colour than when she was all grey and the face looks much softer with a little colour. But something still feels off… I think it’s the lips!
Yeah, Definitely the lips. [...]
As is the tradition of this blog, the first post of the year takes a look back at the animes and video games of the past 12 months, Momotato style! And, after another look at the titles, the top 5 anime shows of the year are chosen. These may not have won the best show [...]
OK, bit of a lazy post this week but one worth shouting out about.
I’m not sure how many readers are familiar with the Distant Worlds concerts. I’m sure most of you are, but just for the few who are not, Distant Worlds is a concert held around the world where one gets to [...]
