    It's already Saturday in Japan. What's the holdup?

    Maybe they are rolling out 5G in preparation for the Internet breaking once they've revealed Galvatron??

    Welp...

    Basically in near ground-zero at this point.

    upload_2021-2-6_0-5-23.png

    Here's what i'm thinking we'll see, just in regards to Masterpiece. Mainly judging by what we've seen before at previous fests (WWF 2019, 3 new reveals, Bee 2.0, Blackarachnia and Hound; WF 2020, 2 new reveals, Arcee and Tigatron).

    - Starscream and Thundercracker will most likely be mentioned again.
    - Some sort of progress report on Raiden?
    - Another mention of Skids?
    - 1 to 3 newly revealed MP releases for the year (Personally, i'm hoping at least one is Masterpiece Sideswipe 2.0).

    Anyone else got any last minute predictions?

    So it IS sunday (in Japan). I doubt it'll start in the middle of the night, so still have a wait. Anyone know what time it's supposed to start?

    It's normally held on Satuday and Sunday with preview teasers appearing on Friday, however this year with it being online its only on Sunday.

    10? Not 12 or 1pm???? Woohoo!!! I’ll have news as soon as I wake up and make breakfast for the wife and the boy! And I’ll have a golden opportunity to say ‘honey feed the child the spinach omelette, tomato slice, and toast. I’ve toys to pour over!’

    Haha, talk about perfect timing for you!

    Meanwhile i'm probably just grab some popcorn and stay up late tonight, haha.

    If only there was a full virtual show and not just what I see is gonna happen, being that (IIRC) stuff periodically going up on their own special site and the SNS of the manufacturers can get a bit much. Just going from one to the next and then so on and so on just gets to you after a while, hahaha.

    Though the times we're in are the times we're in, so be it. I'm just hoping we get to see what we all wanna see, a ton of new shit.

    To my knowledge, Wonderfest has always been a one-day event and always held on a Sunday.

    I thinh we tend to get blurry photo leaks on Saturdays then actual Sunday reveals so the overlaps understandable. No blurry photos this year!

    I know I'm not the only person hoping for an update regarding any new Takara Selects that may be in the pipeline.
