The Winter Wonder Festival 2020, or WonFes 2020 for short, took place over the weekend. Many cool and amazing toys were released, from both games such as Death Stranding to animes such as Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba. We don’t know about you but our wallets are definitely in danger.
Though if you are not sure what was announced, we’ve got you covered. Here are some of the best toy releases from WonFes 2020.
The Witcher – Yennefer of Vengerberg
With a Nendoroid for Geralt of Rivia from The Witcher 3 released and the recent success of the Netflix series of the same name, it was only a matter of time before one for the Sorceress Yennefer was also announced. At WonFes 2020, we are given our first look at the unpainted prototype. More information including Yennefer’s release date will be announced at a later date but for now, you can pre-order Geralt’s Nendoroid first.
Death Stranding – Sam Bridges
Though a standard edition Sam Bridges Nendoroid was already previously announced, this time Good Smile has one-upped themselves by announcing the release of a new Nendoroid for Death Stranding‘s favourite courier, Sam Bridges. This time he is able to carry a whopping 21 cargo cases, along with a number of other accessories.
Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba
The best anime of the decade Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba is getting itself more Nendoroids with prototypes for Agatsuma Zenitsu and Hashibira Inosuke unveiled at WonFes 2020. A new Nendoroid for the stoic Water Pillar Tomioka Giyuu was also announced at the festival. Fans of the series will definitely have a lot to look forward to for the rest of the year.
Pokémon – Red and Charmander
Fans of the first few Pokémon games take note as Good Smile will be releasing a new scale figure for Red, the protagonist from Pokémon Red, Green, and Blue, alongside an adorable Charmander which he chose as his starter Pokemon to accompany him on his journey to become a Pokémon trainer.
Mega Man, or Rockman as he is more commonly known in Japan, has got himself a new Riobot Falcon Armour X figure by Sentinel. It is designed by Eiichi Shimizu who is the mangaka behind the 2011 manga Ultraman. Details of the figure’s release date have yet to be announced.
Inuyasha – Inuyasha and Sesshoumaru
It’s time to travel back to the early 2000s with the reveal of a new Inuyasha and Sesshoumaru scale figurine, posed as if the pair were in battle, sword in hand. Aside from the handsome looking scale figurines, Good Smile Company will also be releasing an adorable Inuyasha Nendoroid as well. They have revealed the prototype of the Nendoroid at WonFes 2020.
Everyone’s favourite gun-toting, glasses-wearing witch Bayonetta is getting her own Nendoroid and the unpainted prototype was finally unveiled at WonFes 2020. Though it being unpainted means that the Nendoroid will not be releasing anytime soon, at least for now we can all admire the details in the prototype shown.
Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age – The Luminary
The painted prototype for the Luminary, protagonist of Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age, has finally been released. With a sword and shield in hand, the Luminary is ready to embark on his journey. More details on the Nendoroid will be released at a later time.
Transformers – Masterpiece Arcee MP-51
Transformers will be getting itself a new female addition with the Masterpiece Arcee MP-51. Though she is known to appear in more than one colour scheme in the Transformers franchise, her Masterpiece figurine will have her appearing in her more typical pink and white colour scheme. Preorders for the Masterpiece Arcee MP-51 will begin in spring 2020.
Transformers – Studio Series Devastator
Last but not least, we have the much anticipated Transformers Studio Series Devastator by Takara Tomy. With its build and menacing-looking face, it is definitely one hell of a figure and we sure Transformers fans all can’t wait for it to be released. The Devastator will be making its US debut at the New York Toy Fair later in February 2020.
