Good Smile Company and Max Factory Release Wonder Festival Teasers

With Winter Wonder Festival right around the corner, Good Smile Company and Max Factory have revealed some teasers for the new figurines they’re announcing this year.

For those unfamiliar with Wonder Festival, it is the world’s biggest figure festival and takes place twice a year in both Summer and Winter. Good Smile Company and Max Factory will be attending the event with a joint booth titled “WONDERFUL HOBBY LIFE FOR YOU!! 25”. This year’s Winter Wonder Festival begins on February 19.

Can you recognize any of the figures? Because all of Good Smile Company’s photos were easily recognizable last year, they’ve increased the difficulty this year.

Preorders Open for Tracer Nendoroid

Good Smile Company has just opened preorders for their new Tracer Nendoroid (Overwatch)!

“Cheers, love! The cavalry’s here!”
From the globally popular multiplayer first-person shooter ‘Overwatch’ comes a Nendoroid of Tracer! The Nendoroid comes complete with a variety of optional parts to add effects for her abilities, interchangeable bent legs, and hair options that can cover up her eyes to recreate her iconic poses from the game!

Also included are Tracer’s trademark pulse pistols, along with open hand parts to pose her as without her guns, like when she activates her recall ability. Equip her pulse bomb to pose Tracer activating her ultimate ability! The Nendoroid is fully articulated, allowing her to be posed in many different ways, and has been carefully sculpted and tuned to ensure that the joints do not stand out, keeping Tracer’s unique appearance in tact. Be sure to add the first of the Overwatch Nendoroid series to your collection!”

This Nendoroid is approximately 100mm tall (about 3.9 inches) and is priced at 4,900 yen (roughly $42.86) including tax. She can be preordered through the Good Smile Company Online Shop until March 16, and the Blizzard store for $49.99. She should be available to order through other sites shortly.
