2017 winter Wonder Festival

2017 is already here, but you know what’s already here? February! Aaaand Japan’s biggest figure festival, the WonFes. No, I won’t make a full list what was just released, you can go and check them here & here.
I am making a list, which figures was the ones I really loved and appreciated and I want to order (but I’m not sure wheather I will or not)

  1. Emilia
    My first and favourite figure, from Re:Zero, I was waiting and she is here and smiling like an angel! I’m curious what kind of faceplates she’ll get, I hope there will be a cute Puck too, accessoires are important!

3. Rem & Ram
Before wonfes we got the pictures of Rem, now they released the prototype of Ram too. They are so incredibly cute but psycho too, I want to preorder Rem first, she has nice accessoires and hair and face(with blood) too. I wonder what kind of stuff will get Ram.

4. Gwendolyn – Odin Sphere
After the game rerelease, it is understandable. The game is awesome, the design is brilliant!

5. Rin & Hanayo
They are truly beautiful! I’m happy that they got a pair figure in scale, they deserved it! The more I look at them, the more I want them! *^*

6. Asuna
Ordinal Scale movie is around the corner. This base is just simply wow. The dress isn’t as unique as the first one, but the pose, the dynamic, the base… I hope the colors will add more on the top of it!tumblr_olllmmfqpt1qzdctco1_1280

7. Saber Lily – F/GO ver.
Fate/Grand Order is quite famous, there are a tons of figures out there from the game. My precious is Saber Lily, she is my favourite version beside the original blue Artoria version. This new figure company named Licorne made it, it’s their first figure ever, hope that everything will look great and the price won’t go up into the heaven.tumblr_ollvuo2opu1qzdctco1_1280

How to clean figure?

I don’t have proper figure shelf yet. I would like to buy one, but I don’t have room for it and I didn’t find the perfect one yet. My figures are in their boxes or in front of my mangas, on my book shelf. The dust fly all over, I’m sewing, making things, living in the city centre, where are a lot of cars, so I should and I need to clean everything once a week.
I’m quite active on MFC and I follow the picture thread, because I like how other people makes photos of their waifu (figures) ^^ But sometimes I see that they don’t wipe the cutie, and since the camera can make high resolution pictures, I can see every dust and dirt on it. My opinion is, that it’s quite disgusting. On one hand, I’m not curious others dirt. On the other hand this mess pictures up.

So, here’s my tutorial-like thing, to encourage collectors cleaning and not scaring. I know what it means when your expensive and favourite figure break or lost some part of it.

First of all, try to take apart. If is a one piece pvc figure, then obviously you can’t, but be careful with the protruding, small parts.
Put the plug into the sink and fill it with water. You can add some soap, but water is enough also.

Wash it with your hand. Water will do the cleaning. If you have bigger dirt on it, try to use soft bristled nail brush, but only on bigger part and use it softly.
