Happy with the latest WonFes?Happy with the latest WonFes?

Knight-HartKnight-Hart2 jaar geledenAsk MFC
As the title says, I'm wonder if people are happy with the things shown at this WonFes. Personally, I'm not so much. It seemed to be an odd mix of only a handful of franchises (iDOLM@STER, Re:Zero, Fate/money, How to Raise a Boring Collection, KanColle, and Touken Ranbu), and some obscure, manga-only titles (looking at you, GSC).

It seems to be that, even more so than in the past, larger franchises are being favored over the smaller ones. I know that that is just what makes the profit, but I still can't help but be a little disappointed. That being said, there were a few great announcements, such as the gothic Aoba and the two leads of Kimi no Na wa.

As someone that loves Fate and likes Misaki Kurehito's art it was allright. Lots of entries saved to see how they develop, but really I doubt more than 2-3, if any, will interest me enough to buy in the end. Was glad to see some love for Rin and Ram in particular, though it galls me something awful how Ram somehow got more figures, but gotta take what you can get I suppose.

Overall, it was aight. Some decent looking things, but nothing that blew me out of the water. Decent, but rather underwhelming. 6/10 :V

DCJP (2 jaar geleden) #18378868For an idea of their price range.
The lowest priced 1/4 scales are around $500. Their Kinnikuman line is a good example.
This is due to the simpler bases and museum type poses.
The higher priced 1/4 scales are $700 and up. This includes The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, The New 52, and Marvel statues. These are much more dynamic, with elaborate bases, details, and poses.
Bloodborne is likely to be in the higher priced range of $700+

LIES DOWN

well at least i know what to expect. will probably shell out for at least one of them ;_; thanks!!

Carousel (2 jaar geleden) #18379290For me at least, it wasn't good, haha. I wasn't expecting him till at least late spring/early fall, so I preordered the Nintendo Switch thinking I was in the all clear as far as hobby allocated money. Then here comes P1 six months before their original estimation. I ended up having to cancel him. Hopefully I can pick him up in a month or two, but it was just bad timing.

I see, I think you should be able to get him for retail if/willing to after release.

DCJP (2 jaar geleden) #18377033You mean the G1 Megatron coming out this month right? I thought that was a good thing, lol.
The factory was probably able to execute this to top standards quicker than normal. I'm thinking that the statues are already in production before the preorder starts, so it must have went very smoothly.
Is it mainly because that affected your schedule? It's a very rare occurrence, this being the first time.

I'm so hesitant to order anything from Prime 1 after they moved the release date of their Megaton UP by SIX MONTHS!

There're only two figures I'll be adding to my collection that were announced this WF. Volks' announcemnt of 7th Dragon DD outfits absolutly floored me though. That's probably my favorite thing that was announced.

rubyserpent_720 (2 jaar geleden) #18376219Super disappointed that there was no Fire Emblem scale/nendo announcements aside from Sakura (Considering Fate's popularity & Heroes recent release.

I really thought we were going to see a big push of FE Nendoroid announcements considering Heros' popularity right now. I guess it just came out too close to WF. I would be -very- surprised if we don't see more in the next few months.
