Wonder Festival Summer 2019: Statue Reveals, Teasers, and Four License Announcements!
August 06, 20194 min read
On July 28th, Figurama Collectors had the great honor of participating in Wonder Festival as an industry guest. This event, which is the largest of its kind worldwide, set new precedents for Figurama Collectors. We announced four new licenses simultaneously, revealed two new and improved statues, and even included some surprises along the way.
Whether you were one of the thousands who flocked to our booth to see our statues and talk with us in person, followed the exciting live updates through our social media pages, or are just now reading up on all the news, here are a collection of highlights you won’t want to miss:
Touka VS Tsukiyama Elite Fandom Statue Revealed
As part of our Wonder Festival celebration, we fully unveiled our highly anticipated Touka VS Tsukiyama Elite Fandom Statue in all its ghoulish glory.
This 1/6-scale masterpiece envisions the battle between Touka and Tsukiyama in the sacred solitude of the church. Setting a record as the first Figurama Collectors statue to feature a female character, its effortless aesthetics include a shattered stained-glass window that illuminates the graceful combatants in holy LED lighting.
In their first-impression review, RaddTitan described the intricate engineering and scale of the statue: “The wings on this piece are huge! Absolutely massive. They are actually quite lightweight when I picked them up, so they’ve been engineered very well in that respect. You’re not going to have to worry about sagging or drooping or leaning over time. Loads of detail and Easter Eggs on this piece.”
Collectors can expect information on the upcoming preorder to be released in the near future.
Note: The support rod for Touka's kagune is for display purposes only and will not be included as part of the final production piece.
4 New Licenses Announced
Figurama Collectors is unspeakably thrilled to announce not just one, but FOUR NEW LICENSES! These licenses are special, not just because they represent a wide variety of genres, classics, fan-favorites, and more obscure series, but because they are the next step in Figurama Collectors expanding its style by challenging ourselves with all-new artistic techniques.
Our NEW LICENSES are:
Seven Deadly Sins
Made in Abyss
Thank you, Figuramians, for supporting us as we venture into undiscovered territory—new and classic series alike. Many of these licenses were selected because of your inciteful and repetitive feedback, while others were chosen because of their unique approach to artistry and genre. We can’t wait to tell you more in the near future.
Revised Alucard of Hellsing Ultimate Elite Exclusive Statue
The wait is over Figuramians! We are so, so proud to finally unveil the Bird of Hermes himself, Alucard of Hellsing Ultimate Elite Exclusive Statue with his revised face sculpt.
Back in 2018, we had showcased the revised sculpt in greyscale at the Massive Toy Gallery in Bangkok, Thailand, during the Tokyo Ghoul Premiere Event. Now you can enjoy your favorite vampire in all his crimson glory. Check out these shots straight from the showfloor!
Rurouni Kenshin Statue Teaser
As a final THANK YOU to everyone who tuned in with us throughout this fantastic day, we’re dropping the very first teaser for our most highly anticipated Kenshin VS Shishio Statue!
As apparent by this teaser, we’re taking every detail seriously. On Shishio’s face alone, you can see the grisly texture of his charred skin, contrasted with his milky eyes and the tattered bandages that wrap his tortured body. The Figurama Collectors creative team has poured their all into this statue, commemorating one of anime’s greatest masterpieces. We can’t wait to share it with you!
