Wonder Festival Summer 2011 Part 3: Resin Garage Kits

Wonder Festival is well known as a showcase for the latest resin garage kits. The makers put out exquisitely painted figures on display, and collectors buy blank kits. The fervor and dedication among collectors for these kits are intense. Here are some pics of the resin offerings from WF:

one of my favorites

 More after the jump:

People waited in this long line for a chance to buy a resin figure. Once people got to the front, they drew straws. Pull the red tipped one, and you can buy one of the below kits.

The top booths drew considerable attention from photographers.

This and the next one are also favorites, if only for their willingness to go out of the box and challenge kawai dominance.

master Andy i have to ask you a thing: garage kit for example artstorm's one are paint or blank?
or better if pictures present toy paint it's paint when i buy it?

It's a good question. I think garage kits are usually white blank pieces in the box. So, even if the display is painted, you are buying a blank set. But I can't say that's 100% the case with every company. It's better to ask them directly if you're not sure. BTW, nice dog avatar!
