A Look at the Rockman Wares Coming to Winter Wonder Festival '13

wonderfest2013 The 2013 Winter Wonder Festival is taking place in Japan this weekend. The Rockman offerings seem a little sparse this time around, compared to last year's HOBBY ROCK bonanza. However, once the event kicks off, even more custom and homebrew kits may surface. For now, you can take a look at what we've managed to dig up!

First up is Fighting Fefnir by Seyou-san, part of Yama Tai Koku's Repliroid Moving Series. This is the same sculptor that has produced fantastic garage kits of Leviathan and Harpuia, as well as Iwamoto's original character Merti. To express Fefnir's position as a power character, Seyou gave him a bit of muscle definition. The kit is color cast, but would need additional detailing to look as good as these shots. And at a planned price of ¥10,000, it'll be a big dent in the ol' wallet!

Next up is this completely adorable and completely poseable Servbot by Matadora. This garage kit has eight varaties of facial expression stickers and three heads you can use to display them. This kit is also color cast, and as Servbots aren't so detailed, additional coloring may not be necessary. This should be a real product! The asking price is ¥5000, with an additional ¥1000 for the stand and cooking accessories.

Last up is this Ciel statue by Shinshi Doumei (ever notice there are a ton of Zero series characters at these?). As you can see, being an unpainted statue, this will would certainly take some work to make presentable. The size is said to be comparable to Kotobukiya's Zero kit. There is no information on the price.

Sadly I won't be making to to WonFes this time - it's a bit of an expensive pain in the butt. But good luck to you, avid garage kit collector! Here's some of what you have to look forward to!
