Nothing happening on their website, but WonFes does have a Twitter:
It's 4:48 here so I doubt I'll stay up much later.
Based on TagHobby it looks like there's some kind of exhibition somewhere
[不斷更新] 2021年2月7日 WONDER FESTIVAL 2020冬 WEB展覽會 – POSE+ & B2.FIVE展品 | Taghobby.com
Like the toys look set up like they would be at a regular WonFes, and they're releasing these pics. I'm just not sure if these are just being fed to websites or if there's actually a place to see this "live".
I've been checking live feeds of @tf_pr, Dengeki Hobby and the WF hashtag (#webWF), Wonderfest themselves aren't saying anything though, so it's pretty much decentralized this time.
Gonna keep an eye now on Tag, though. Haven't heard of them until now, haha. First time i'm hearing of a physical exhibition happening now.
The #WebWF hashtag seems to be the go-to thing for this:
A lot of stuff coming through on Twitter all at once
Seems there's a website but I don't know what the address is...
So this is the official website but I don't see Takara in the list of vendors aside from some Takara Tomy Arts collab
Did anyone even actually confirm that Takara will be showing anything at this online event? Or this all just pure speculation?
Last I checked, zero word. So at this point i'm just hoping something pops up.
Though at the same time, I honestly don't remember the last time Takara skipped out on one of these if ever.
Takara have always posted on their Twitter page when they're going to be attending Wonder Fest, so it's weird there's been no mention this year, no?
THAT I honestly didn't know, and if i'm checking the right Twitter account for it, nothing. @takaratomytoys, right?
Yup, think so. Of tf_pr but as you said you're already checking their page.
I looked through the Japanese website, but I couldn't find Takara Tomy in the index page for companies whose name start with T.
Yep, nothing so far on that front either.
I believe that those were individual dealers and not corporates. Though lemme doublecheck on that before I end up eating my own words, ha.
EDIT: Yeah, while i'm not seeing any big names, there's mention of a couple heavy industries. I do see Studio Halfeye mentioned in there (small studio that does crazy transforming mecha shit), so either they're there on their own as a special dealer or they're corporate. Not seeing any mentions of the ubers like Kotobukiya there though.
Maybe TT pulled out for this fest and are coordinating some announcements with Hasbro.
So this is a bust then.....bummer.
Meanwhile i'm sticking around and seeing what'll happen. Though at this point i'm already losing some hope.
Already starting to feel like Mr. Krabs during 24-hour shifts.
Just like last time I looked forward to tfcon online for months for a new fans toys reveal - since they attend pretty much every single event - and got nothing, it seems Takaratomy is pulling the same trick. I was hoping to see a grey prototype of a new BW MP, but had a feeling they werent planning to attend since the MP52+ reveal was still very recent. If thats the case, What an absolutely massive let down. I'll just go ahead and set an arbitrary countdown for July then.
Main page here, but I don't see any mention of TakaraTomy.
No Bandai etc either though, so who knows..
Is it still continuing or is that it?
Yeah, only thing i've seen so far is TakaraTomyARTS in some sort of collab.
Separate names with a comma.
