Super Festival 71 / スーパーフェスティバル 71

At the latest installment of Super Festival, a huge number of toy makers sold figures made from sofubi, resin, and other materials. Many shared booths, maximizing the number of makers who could attend. In addition to new and familiar faces, we saw others who haven't attended the show in a while, as well as some exhibitors from overseas. It was quite a gathering of toy makers!

By and large, most exhibitors had a limited number of things on hand or on display, with exceptions like CCP and Fewture Models. But there was such a variety and so many booths that the total number of releases was substantial.

It was a balmy, drizzly spring morning, and the event's location in central Tokyo was almost pastoral (a word rarely used to describe the city).
To get to the event site, you go up a little hill and through this massive gate, which was once an entrance to an Edo period castle.

Despite the light rain, many of the toy faithful were in line before 7:00 AM.

Here are the toy makers in attendance, arranged in alphabetical order.

Al Gangu, AK Art, Uncut

The display card on the right is a nice homage to Bandai's Horror World keshi gomu gacahapon line from the 1980s.

It's been quite a while since we've seen Amapro. I told him the fans wanted to see a return of Pachi Summit!

 Angel Abby
This was a popular booth.

Astro Zombies

Big One Craft
New outfit with a seasoned toy maker. If I'm not mistaken, it is replacing Kaiju Ken.



Awesome Blobpus x Jetture collab. No release details yet.

Bwana was one of many overseas artists who flew over for the event. Pushead and Namaniku were among the others who made the trip.
