This weekend marked the big event of the season, Winter WonFes! Figure collectors and lovers flocked to Sapporo (or Twitter if they couldn’t afford the plane ticket) to see what figure companies were planning to make. While there were also garage kits available, we’ll be focusing on the official merchandise everyone can order.

Some of the big highlights were the painted version of the Yuzuki Yukari Lin 1/8 scale, the ONE figure, and a new line of Nendoroid Petites called “Nendoroid Petite: Hatsune Miku Selection Renewal”. In addition, the adorable Hatsune Miku iDoll made its debut. Read the full article (and see all the pictures we gathered) here.
