Wonder Festival 2009 Summer Report



Falke Banner

Who else than T.H.A.T. incarnates originality and fun?

WF Pic
This is the corner of not-for-sale items...
Notice that the robot at right from Play Online, superbly rendered by KOARA-san, was visiting the table.

WF Pic
These Ma.K-like original creations were definitely for sale, as was the massive 1/20 F-Boot in the background.

At left is a 1/48-ish Falke, which has open "arms" as if it were going to hug you,
and the very funny Wheeled Kroete, for which the tires has to be purchased separately.
Did I say fun?

WF Pic
But the true winner in this whole lot this time was this 1/76 Fireball with a booster unit,
based on the illustration in the Ma.K sketchbook, brought to us despite an explicit comment by Sensei who wrote
"you really shouldn't try building anything like this".
Luckily for us, the T.H.A.T. folks noticed the comment only the day before WF...

WF Pic
Originality and fun can also be shown by creating so-called deformed items,
something Tokyo Modelnica has done very successfully with their line of Baby Maschinen.

WF Pic
Meet last year's success, Baby Falke...

WF Pic
Baby Gustav-Kai(?),

WF Pic
Baby SAFS,

WF Pic
Baby ASF MK.II,

WF Pic
and the new additions to the family, the Baby Super Jerry...

WF Pic
... and Baby Nixe.

WF Pic
Not to forget in the deformed category is Inspire and TTToy, with their line of walking Raptor and Melusine suits.

I'm done here.
I want my Maschinen back!
What Else?
