Wonder Festival 2017 Summer was held at Makuhari Messe on Sunday July 30.
The following gallery is roughly formatted into four main categories.
The first section deals with all items, both commercial and fan-made, for Macross, Megazone 23 and Mospeada.
The second section deals with all other toy and figure categories.
Sections three and four are photos from special displays to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of toy manufacturer Max Factory. One is a gallery of tribute art which was absolutely one of the highlights of the show. The other includes a few shots from a much larger gallery of all of Mac Factory’s products to date.
The Walkure Cafe was a temporary collaboration event which ran at Area-Q in Harajuku from April 7 to April 23.
The following gallery was taken by SpeakerPODcast co-host Adrian, who made sure to capture all the little messages and comments that the actual members of Walkure left for their fans.
As part of a collaboration with Macross Delta to celebrate the 35th anniversary of Macross, and to commemorate the upcoming release of the ‘Walkure Won’t Stop’ concert bluray on May 31, Softmap is currently displaying Walkure costumes from their concert in Yokohama, and entries from a Macross Modelers contest.
The display opened on Friday April 28, and the SpeakerPODcast Crew was there so early that staff were actually still setting it up!
An art exhibit for famed illustrator Yoshitaka Amano, best known for his work on Final Fantasy and Vampire Hunter D, was held in Tokyo from Jan. 29 to Mar. 8, 2016.
Titled, “Evolving Fantasy”, it differed from most such exhibits in that photography was permitted.
Below is a gallery of photos I managed to snap. Given the exhibit lighting conditions, some were taken at less than ideal angles in an attempt to avoid glare and reflections.
Wonder Festival 2017 Winter was held at Makuhari Messe on Sunday, Feb.19.
This time around, the show included a good smattering of not just Macross stuff, but also other classic mecha-related items as well. Check out DecultureShock’s photo gallery below!
