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.
Tomorrow is the day for Anime Festival Asia X (a.k.a. AFA X). The X stands for 2010 and this is the one of the biggest anime event in South East Asia! If you read my previous coverage on AFA 2009, we see maid cafe, anime singers, special guest, cosplayers, anime concert and my favourite anime toy sales! Although this year they will have the movie screening of Gundam OO the Movie, but I prefer to look at the special offers by the toy shops ^^. These are the main targets that I will visit.
This is so freaking awesome! Bandai is going to release first Mazinkaizer SKL (Skull) figure, under the recently very hot Super Robot Chogokin series. At last Bandai made a good choice where Super Robot Chogokin is well known for its articulation. However, this Mazinkaizer SKL is Tamashii Web Shop exclusive and it comes with a Mazinkaizer SKL anime episode 1 DVD. Means that either pay higher price or pray for the normal release.
