Suwabe (@gsc_suwabe) from the Corporate Planning Division here! Trying to protect myself from the flu that is going around the offices!

But that aside, this Sunday is Wonder Festival!!!

▲ Huge amounts of boxes ready for transport!


▲ Mossan taking a few last minute photos for the photo gallery!


▲ The bonuses given out at the Good Smile Clinic are cute and fun!

▲ Various equipment and items for the day!

But let’s get to the main feature for today!!

Last time everyone knew all of my photos, so this time I’ve increased the difficultly level! Good luck!! (`・ω・´)
















I’m already getting excited!! How many were you able to recognise?! (*´ω`*)

If you can come by the event we hope you’ll come by to take a closer look! We will also of course have the normal gallery open for you to see a selection of the latest figures even if you can’t make it to the event yourself!

Last but last least a quick notice regarding photography at the event! Please note that we will be stopping photography from 16:30 until the end of the event to allow as many people as possible to see the figures at the event! Be sure to get your photos done before then!!

Wonda-chan Next Door Project FILE03: Kamogawa ver.

Today’s Main Feature!

Hello everyone!! Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

Today I’m going to be taking a look at…
Wonda-chan Next Door Project FILE03: Kamogawa ver.!

The third in the Wonda-chan NEXT DOOR Project Figure Series!

The series was created as the perfect item to bring home as a souvenir from the Wonder Festival Event Hall!! The series started two events ago and has had a new addition each time the event comes around! ★

The sporty backpack, cute and colorful hair and all the other details from the original illustration – and the details that could never be seen on the illustration – have all been faithfully included on the figure!ヽ(゚∀゚ヽ 三 ノ゚∀゚)ノ

▲The backpack looks rather heavy! I wonder what she keeps in there!

Her lovely blue eyes, slightly open mouth and boldly open outfit…. the figure has an innocent charm combined with a sexy pose that not really captures the charm of the original illustration!

While she has a very slender build, there is also something about the sculpting that makes her skin seem so very touchable! The more I look at her the more she grabs my attention!! (੭ ˃̣̣̥ ω˂̣̣̥)੭ु⁾⁾

This should give you a better idea for the size!

▲ She is about the same height as an iPhone6S! Around 127mm!

But what exactly 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!

The illustrator for this WonFes’s ‘NEXT DOOR’ Wonda-chan is Kamogawa!

The illustration has such a cute yet somewhat compelling effect to it! This is what I call art!!

The sculptor for the figure is Iwanaga Sakurako (Shokubutu Shojo-en)!

The creases in her outfit, the flow of her hair and the details on all the little accessories as well as her outfit have all been sculpted so intricately! The details of her body around the joining of her hips and that amazing belly button all come together to show off the work of a truly incredible sculptor!

▲ A lower angle gives a nice look at her hips and a peek at her chest! ♡

You may have heard the name in the past on some other amazing figures such as Hatsune Miku: Deep Sea Girl ver.Aircraft Carrier Wo-Class or Satsuki Kiryuin: Senketsu Ver.!

Hatsune Miku: Deep Sea Girl ver.
Rerelease in September 2017

Aircraft Carrier Wo-Class
Released in June 2015
Satsuki Kiryuin: Senketsu Ver.
Released in August 2015

Another item Iwanaga-san sculpted is Akashi-san from the series that is currently being reaired on TV – The Tatami Galaxy! ♪

Released in April 2011

Simply put, this year’s Wonda-chan has been sculpted by a professional with years of experience!! I hope everyone will enjoy adding her to their collection! ε=(。・д・。)

▲ It’s nice to look at at all, but I also recommend touching!!

The packaging is similar to previous Wonda-chan releases!

▲ The box features both the original illustration and figure photo!

The inner blister packaging is made like this allowing you to simply open up the box and put her on display nearly instantly!

▲ No parts to connect or put together! ♪

The base of the figure is the same as all the previous NEXT DOOR Project figures, featuring the Wonder Festival logo for her specific event!

▲ The figure doesn’t have any tabs to connect to the base, simply place her on top!

Be sure to pick her up as your souvenir for WonFes!

Wonhobby 24 ORANGE ROUGE Booth & Gokotai!

Hello everyone!  Chan-Shuu (@gscs_hirase) from the GSC Planning team here! Recently been walking two of the stations to work thanks to a certain game that involves throwing red and white balls…

Anyway, today I’m going to start off by saying a big thanks to everyone who came to visit the WONDERFUL HOBBY LIFE FOR YOU!!24 booth during last weekend’s Wonder Festival! So many people stopped by to enjoy the exhibits, sales and stage! It was such a pleasure to watch everyone enjoying themselves!!

Last but not least, let me take a quick look at this figure which was on display and is now already up for preorder!! 

▼ 1/8th Scale Gokotai!

From the popular browser and smartphone game ‘Touken Ranbu -ONLINE-‘ comes a 1/8th scale figure of Gokotai based on his standard standing pose from the game.

The slim figure you would expect from a short sword, the fluttering collar and long sleeves of his outfit and his gentle, cheerful expression have all been captured perfectly for fans to enjoy from any angle they please. The figure also comes complete with five little tigers each with unique patterns, poses and beautiful eyes to display around him. Be sure to add him to your collection!

“Ye-Yes! I am ready… as always…”

The very first ORANGE ROUGE scale figure of a ‘Tantou’ short sword. His petite build, the tiger popping out from the back of his head and another four tigers running around at his feet make for a figure filled with highlights from both a sculpt and paintwork perspectives!

▼ Face Close-Up!

▲His charming teeth look great on the figure! So cute!

The characteristic coloring of his eyes, his soft looking hair and his silky white skin have all been beautifully included on the figure! Also take a look at the eyes of the tigers! They are such beautiful colors and so shiny and lively!!  (^ω^*)

▼This is how he looks from the back!

▲ The dark outfit contrasts with his pale skin very nicely!

The emblem on the back of his outfit with it’s shiny gold appearance also adds a nice accent to the overall design! The long sleeves cover up a large amount of his hands but the dainty fingers coming out the ends are so very intricate!!

▼ Long, slender legs!

▲ The long legs that come out from his short pants are so thin and yet still keep a lovely symmetry with a beautiful sculpt. The sculpting of his loafer shoes is also amazing!

But really… as if Gokotai wasn’t cute enough on his own, these tigers are absolutely adorable!! They can all be placed wherever you like as they are not held in place by anything!

▼ Everyone Together!!

△ All run free!!! (≧ω≦*)

The 1/8th Scale Gokotai is currently up for preorder!


Will also comes with this Gokotai Sword Charm as a bonus!

Be sure to consider it when preordering! ╭( ・ㅂ・)و
But that’s all from me today! See you all again next time! (ω)
