WonFes 2013 Winter once again proved a treasure trove of new anime figures, goods, and other otaku essentials, with 2013 set to be a year of outstanding releases (and for overseas anime fans, finally a return to a more favourable exchange rate).

As usual the event was well attended by photographers, and also had the benefit of plenty of official photos:

    Wow, you can really see the benefit of using 3d printers nowadays. Watch the prices not get any lower even though the time it takes to make better figures is less!!

    Price won't be going down much, unless 3D printers are as common and cheap as common household printers.

    I'm no pro at this but surely some time are needed to prep the printer to print these kind of figurines and things printed out of it, also needs time to detail up/touched up before it can go on the sale shelves.

    Sure, most can say the price will go down after a while but the fact that they're only DESIGNED and made in Japan (based on commercial franchises made by Japanese, no less) still stands; thus the price prolly can be maintained as long as the Japs wished to.

    No offense, China or someone else might also do the same thing for cheaper price once 3D printing become a major trend; but the question is, WILL YOU BUY IT? Surely any true appreciators wanna buy it from the homeland of these characters, right?

    Just my 2 cents. Flame if any of you must.

    'based on commercial franchises made by Japanese, no less'

    emphasis on this.

    What makes you think these are 3d printed? Not sure if you've ever seen something 3d printed, but they come out layered and require a LOT of prep work. Hardly something you would use for highly detailed figures like these.

    Yes, I have. I do digital work for 3d printed toys. The finishing is done afterwards in wax or resin along with any changes missed by doing everything on a flat 2d screen.
    Some of the new printers, btw, have VERY fine resolution. Check out the envisiontec perfactory printer. I've been turning out quite a few jobs on that printer the last 6 months.

    New technologies allow new workflows, and thus certain types of details that may have been rare prior become commonplace. This even extends to the sculpting of the faces. Aesthetics change, Precision increases, etc.

    You forget, outside of the mobile market, Japan is one of the most backward countries. There's no way in hell they'd be that quick to adopt 3d printers.

    Actually, most of these figures aren't made completely with a 3D printer, many of them are still sculpted by hand (but maybe not completely like before).
    They do use 3D printing for many small accessories like guns.
    Some figures are being designed on a computer in programs. Examples of these are Good Smile Company's Angel Beats! figures (Yuri and Tenshi) and their Dog Days figures (Leo and Milchi).

    I want to also add, the detail on these figures is actually not difficult for something that can print full details the size of .1mm.
    It takes more time to mold and convert to wax and clean up air bubbles and seamlines from casting than it does getting rid of the print lines.

    I really don't get Japan, if Anime were a mainstream here, like it is there, the scupltors of the originals of the figures would be worshiped here as art geniuses.

    Also, lol, it seems they'll never stop making endless amounts of Saber figures (many of them are awesome though of course!)! :P Must be a nightmare for those who want to collect them all. I'm glad I'm more of a Rin person myself, since it's a bit easier on my economy. :P

    I do not mind the prices, I was just implying that with all the great figures coming out this year I will be spending a lot of money on them thus initiating the fucking of my wallet. I would rather have a high quality product even if the price is high then a cheap low quality one.
