Finally, after a year-long hiatus due to last year's escalator incident at the Tokyo Big Sight convention center, Wonder Festival is back and this time it was moved to the Makuhari Messe convention center. Next year's Winter event is planned to be held on 7 February at Makuhari Messe again but I've heard rumors that event organizer Kaiyodo had resolved last year's escalator incident with the management of Tokyo Big Sight and may be heading back to the usual venue again.
The Summer event was held on 26 July. Sorry, I'm a week behind on posting my coverage. ^^; I've been busy catching up with my emails and shipping out WF orders. I do have most of my pictures up on HLJ already along with my text that you can view here. My photos of most of the new product announcements from major hobby companies in the industry hall at the event are up on HLJ. I will now begin covering the event with individual posts on upcoming exclusives announced at the show, as well as resin kits, and other cool stuff that caught my attention.
Shot this at the end of the event.
Check out pics of the exclusives in my flickr gallery set below:
