I’m sure many fans have already taken a look at all the WonHobby products, but in case you missed out, be sure to take a look! For those unfamiliar with the event, here is a quick summary!
▼What is Wonder Festival?
Wonder Festival is the world’s biggest figure festival which takes place twice a year – once in Winter and once in Summer. The first Wonder Festival of 2018 is set to be held at the Makuhari Messe in Chiba, Japan on the 18th February 2018.
This is short for the “WONDERFUL HOBBY LIFE FOR YOU!! Booth”, which is the joint booth Good Smile Company and Max Factory at the event. We have various brand new figures on display at the event, together with product sales, various other attractions and even a live stage!
2018 marks the 9th anniversary of Snow Miku, and the 2018 design was once again selected by fans through online votes between a selection of outfits all submitted to piapro by fans! This year the theme was “Animals of Winter Hokkaido”, and the winning Snow Miku design was this version based on a red-crowned crane illustrated by Taichadon! The illustration has now been converted into this adorable Nendoroid!
The hood can be attached and removed for a different look, and she comes with three different face plates including a standard expression, a wistful smiling face as well as a prayer face with closed eyes and a touch of lipstick. Optional parts include a kagura bell and folding fan to pose her performing traditional dances! A cypress stand to place the tools on as well as kneeling parts are also included to display her in prayer, and a crane made from ice is also included for her to hold in her hands.
In addition, a large base featuring a paved road and torii archway is also included to bring out the temple atmosphere, and she comes with a broom to display her cleaning the temple grounds! The snow on the base can even be removed for even more display opportunities! Enjoy the relaxed Snow Miku priestess in all sorts of adorable Nendoroid poses!

The 5th Wonda-chan NEXT DOOR PROJECT figure is illustrated by Gin, an artist well known for works in various light novels and games! The figure has been sculpted by Ken Kawanishi (GRIMROCK!) ヽ(*´∀｀)ノ
▼ What is the Wonda-chan NEXT DOOR PROJECT
The illustrations of Wonda-chan used on the official WonFes guidebook are always done by a different illustrator for each event, and for the past few events a ‘NEXT DOOR’ Wonda-chan illustration – a second illustration that is done by an up-and-coming illustrator – has been done together with the main Wonda-chan! This secondary Wonda-chan is then made into a figure, creating the perfect souvenir for each Wonder Festival event! Good Smile Company takes part as the manufacturer for the figure!
Anyway, that’s all for now! The site will be updated each week up until the event, so stay tuned for more info!! ((´д`●))三((●´д`))
