Just got back from Wonderfestival. Oh good gawd, it happened to fall on the coldest day of the year. The weather itself was only around freezing, but there was this killer strong wind that just chilled you to the bone, if it didn't blow all your stuff away first. Anyway, I got there at 6 AM, and there was already a line that contained twice as many people as last year's botcon, who had camped out. And let me tell you, Japanese people know how to camp. Chairs, thermal blankets, full on facial wraps - they had it all. The bad news? My stupid camera, which has been acting up lately, decided to break completely when I tried to take pictures of the Takara-Tomy booth. So sorry that camera-phone pictures will have to do with my descriptions. Basically, the Takara-Tomy display had the new Henkei (Classics) line up on display with a couple extras. God, let me tell you, Henkei Prime is gorgeous. The apple red that they used coupled with his chrome grill is just gorgeous. Mirage is surprisingly nice, too. Grimlock, on the otherhand, I'm pretty torn with. While he has some killer paint apps and variation in colour compared to the American release, the use of the gold and silver chrome really stands out - and not so much in a good way. Starscream's chrome launchers are similarly weird, tho not nearly as chrome-covered as Grimlock. Megatron is just nice to have in GeeWun colours, so I can forgive the chrome chest piece. They had Encore Meister (Jazz) up on display, too. He's supporting tampoed decals, which is really, really nice. Also, his head is fixed! I'm probably going to have to break down and buy this one. Also on display was the new Music Label Convoy in GeeWun colours and the Transcanning Optimus Prime, which is less like a Transformer and more like a glorified Microman toy with add-on armour. Pretty cool, tho, but definitely a lot smaller than I had thought he'd be - and at the Voyager price point, I'm not certain as to whether I'll buy him or not. So for the time being, I'll throw up these small pics (viewable here: http://www.allspark.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=43235&st=0&gopid=866196&#entry866196). Later, (after I get some sleep), I'll try to do some photos of GeeWun coloured Arcee for those who might be interested in what she looks like. Oh, and Jizai Toys didn't show up to the Winterfestival citing problems due to the weather (the winds were so high than some train lines got shut down). So suck that I didn't get to at least see the Wheelie and Powerglide garage kits in person.
