Anime Festival Asia X Part 1: Anime Toy BoothNovember 15th, 2010
Hi guys, I’m back from Anime Festival Asia X. By the time I finish this post AFA X should be over. Unlike previous AFA, I only went for day 1 and managed to take some photos of the booths, sales and the cosplayers. There are many surprises and disappointment in this year’s event. My coverage will focus on the event area and part 1 is mainly about the new anime figures, toy sales and the event exclusive items.
Bandai Gunpla Booth
The Bandai Gunpla booth is right in front of the hall entrance. As usual there is crowd around it. Let me have a closer look at their offer…
Erm… that’s it? The varieties of the Gundam model kits is pretty limited. I would say Gundam Fiesta 2010 have more than this. And to be honest the price is not very attractive.
Event Exclusive HG 1/144 Gundam 00 Quanta Clear Colour Version
Bandai Soul of Chogokin and S.H.Figuarts Booth
I’m impressed that Bandai have a Soul of Chogokin and SHFguarts section in AFA X. They brought in some of the Soul of Chogokin and the new Super Robot Chogokin series. But to be honest, I see it as a Mazinger fair than Soul of Chogokin since there aren’t much items for the section.
Soul of Chogokin and Super Robot Chogokin Mazinger Z & Great Mazinger Display.
Jumbo Mazinger Z
Super Robot Chogokin Mazinger Z, Mazinger’s Weapon Set and Great Mazinger. How come there is no Alteisen?
Getter 1, Combattler V, Getter Dragon and some SDX Gundams. Nothing much.
S.H.Figuarts & S.I.C. Kamen Rider
Wow… I seen quite a lot of S.H.Figuarts & S.I.C. Kamen Rider (a.k.a. Mask Rider) this year.
S.H.Figuarts Emperor Kiva
S.H.Figuarts Kamen Rider W
S.H.Figuarts Figures at the counter.
S.I.C. Kamen Riders. I really like the design for this series.
Cool Golden armors for Saint Seiya.
Another display for Saint Seiya figures.
Event exclusive Pegasus Seiya (Full Bronze Cloth)
Bandai Candy Toys
The candy toys area. Nothing new though. More like clearing old stocks.
Life Size Keroro Gunsou
Life Size Chopper from One Piece
Other Toys & Figures
Demonbane at Nitro+ Booth
Figma Black Gold Saw at the Good Smile Company display area.
Nendoroid Petit Black Rock Shooter and Dead Master
End of part 1
It is late and I’m gonna sleep. Tomorrow got to work. Overall the toy sales are boring this year. It gives me a “clearing old stock” feel. Through out the whole event, I only bought a Neko Mimi (cat’s ear) hairband. =\ Anyway part 2 is coming soon.
