"The Wonder Festival, short Wonfes, Japan’s pioneer among otaku festivals reaching 34 years in history, allows professionals as well as amateurs to exhibit and sell self-produced figure model kits.
It’s not only about figurines, fans can see their favourite voice actors and other talents live on stage, show off their cosplays or participate in various workshops ー an event nearly impossible to fully enjoy at a single day.
The Wonder Festival is held twice a year, in February and in July, and takes place at Makuhari Messe in Chiba prefecture." (wf.kaiyodo.net)
Splash Film does a swell video recap of the recent WONDER FESTIVAL 2018 [WINTER] (for which I'd only scratched the surface thus far #onTOYSREVIL), and as well describe what the event is about - for which I am pretty appreciative of, as folks might take the event for granted, but is (literally) "foreign" to others, and needs to have their "story" retold once and a while.
The next incarnation of Wonfes is WONDER FESTIVAL 2018 [SUMMER] scheduled for July 29th, 2018.
