Today new info was released on the WonHobby website! (*´▽`*)♡

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

The one thing I’m most afraid of around WonFes time is catching a cold! There is simply no time to rest even when sick… but unfortunately the cold is currently making it’s way around the GSC offices! I must fight against it or I’ll end up sick on the day of the event!! ((((;゚Д゚))))

Anyway… today I’m going to be taking a look at the WONDERFUL HOBBY LIFE FOR YOU!! 19 site, which was first opened last week, but was updated today with stage and booth information!

For those who don’t know, this website contains all the info you need about the Good Smile Company and Max Factory booth at Wonder Festival 2014 (Winter) which is taking place on the 9th February!

The theme this time around is ‘Snow’ and ‘Magic’ to fit with the Snow Mikus that are releasing at the event! ☆

In the background you’ll even see some snow gently floating down the screen! (*´Д`)

At first you might not see any on the top page… but…

If you click on the book in the bottom left…


Miku will jump out of the book, cast one of her magic spells and it’ll start snowing!! Be sure to try it out for yourself on the WONDERFUL HOBBY LIFE FOR YOU!! 19 Site! (*´▽`*)♥
*Note that some browsers may be incompatible!

By the way, WonHobby is the shortened form of WONDERFUL HOBBY LIFE FOR YOU!!, which is the name of the booth that GSC and Mac Factory run together at Wonder Festival.

As always we’ve got all sorts of interesting things planned for display as well as exclusives at the event and a stage filled with interesting performances!

If you’re a fan of figures and other similar hobbies, it’s not an event you should ever miss out on!! (`・ω・´)

I’ll be at the event – livestreaming most of the time, but wandering around at others! I hope to see you all there on the day!


Anyway, as I mentioned at the start of the blog, the website was updated today with some new information! The main thing I want to point out is the Booth Information section! ♡

I’m sure from the map below you can see there is a large area in the center labelled ‘GOOD SMILE WORKS’! This year’s booth has something rather different to previous years! ε=(。・д・。)

Of course we will have all the latest figures on display as always… but we’re also going to be introducing everyone to the world that Good Smile Company does!

A large part of the booth, named “GOOD SMILE WORKS” will show how figures are planned, manufactured and sold from start to finish! The guide for the tour will be none other than one of the newest additions to the company… Sumako! We hope everyone who’s interested will take a look!

“How are products planned? What does it involve?”
“How is a prototype made?”
“What exactly are figure moulds used for?”

These and many other questions will be answered!

As you move along the process real documents and info will also be on display for a complete understanding of how things progress!

It’s a rather different project than normal, but it’ll definitely be interesting for those who enjoy the figure industry! We hope you’ll enjoy it!! ♡


I’d also like to draw everyone’s attention to the items introduced beneath the Good Smile Works section! One of which is…. A Semi-Waterproof Shimakaze Sticker! (Trial Edition) ♪

This is the very first WonFes that I’ve attended after becoming ‘Kahotan’ and taking over the blog, and so everyone who is kind enough to follow my twitter account will receive a Semi-Waterproof Shimakaze Sticker!

You’re welcome to follow now or at the event itself! Followers that have been with me since the start are also of course welcome to come and get their sticker! ♥ Around 13:00 at the sales corner will transform into a special corner where you can come by and collect your sticker! (o・ω・o)

You will need to bring some kind of proof that you’re following the @gsc_kahotan Twitter account! This can be your cellphone showing you’re account following mine, or even a screen print out! Anything that proves you’re a follower!! A big thank you to everyone who is following me, it means a lot!!


This WonFes if filled with new things…
But there are also some classic things that will never change!

Things like…
The Kigurumi Character Costume Corner! ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ

wooser from wooser’s hand-to-mouth life: awakening arc will once again be visiting the WonHobby booth! ♥ You’re welcome to take a photo with him and even give him a big hug! Those lucky enough to meet him will also be able to get a wooser’s hand-to-mouth life Weiβ Schwarz Promotional Card for free!! ☆

Not to mention… I hear rumours that another character costume will be joining in at the event too!! ( ゚д゚)

All the more reason to come and enjoy the event with us!! ★


The site will still be updated more before the event, so be sure to keep your eyes on it for more info! ♪

I’ll also keep everyone informed on the blog whenever possible!
