Wonder Festival 1/6th scale Hunter Girl with wolf bust

Recommended Posts

There WAS a company making resin minis in Hong Kong, but they closed down last year because they couldn't compete with the recasters copying their stuff.  If it comes from China, it's 99% likely that it's a recast. 

I also found an eBay ad for the same kit, and they actually use the word recast in the text. but that one was from Thailand.

That's another country where copyright seems to mean 'copy this right now'.

 

Some resin casters go to the step of partially assembling their minis before selling them these days, in the hope that it will at least delay the recasters a little bit.

 

By the general feel of it, I'd assume that it was Eastern European in origin.  

(Not that I'm an expert. Far from it)

beautiful, with some very realistic details. 

I bet that a gun nutexpert could even ID the rifle the girl has on her back. 

 

The paintjob is... just beautiful.

Thanks! I could only find one listing that even claimed to be original and it was a completed model. From what I understand this was a garage kit sold at Wonder festival in Japan and limited to 300 pieces but info on garage kits seems to be spotty at best.

300 is a typical number of casts from most garage or boutique vendors.   

The molds are pretty fragile so they never last very long, and making new molds from the master eventually wears it down. Details gets rubbed off and all that. 

 

Some hobbyists never bother to put up a storefront webpage, or even sell through established resellers. Instead they just rent a table in a dealers' area at a con and sell them direct there. 

 

I found a painter A. Demidov from st. Petersburg that posted his version over on Putty&Paint in december 2017.

I'll have to look him up.

Speaking of garage kits I won this one last night Screenshot_20200510-082908.thumb.png.933583837208c8b623133c02a011cf6e.png

Seems to be some kind of promo figure it was listed as wonder fest 1990s Japanese Barbarella but I can't really find anything on it either.

That's not Barbarella. 

Barbarella was 1960s Sci-fi/soft-pr0n with Jane Fonda in skintight suits or one-piece swimsuits. 

Don't bother watching the movie. No one watches it for the acting... 

 

That one is more 'Red Sonja'.   

(Except that Red is usually portrayed with chainmaille bikini top.)

Yeah I've had the misfortune of seeing it. My guess is she's just a generic anime barbarian girl, possibly the mascot for that years wonder festival.

Barbarella was actually a comic first.  I remember seeing it sold in stores in Norway.

From the video it sounds like the only way to get a lot of these kits is via recast because they make less than 50 of them for a show

Claudine looks like a fine kit.

Can't wait to see it painted by you.

      I finished this one a few months ago but forgot to post. It is a figure from Durgin Paint Forge's Second Government of Inneath Kickstarter. It was an interesting one to paint as some of the details were not really defined so it took some guess work to figure out what is what. Overall though, I am very happy with how he turned out, especially the wine bottle as I believe is is the first one that I have painted.

      Story
      Hello, we are the "Mystery Studio" team, we make high-quality collectible miniatures and terrain mostly on a 28-35mm scale.
      We always had few fantasy elements on the table. And we decided to create them ourselves. In this project, we present to you a large set of fantasy city port. At the moment, we have already made prototypes and first copies of almost all the miniatures, except for a few.
      All models are ready for production.
      We sincerely hope for your support, because the emergence of new, interesting projects depends on the success of this project.

      Story
      Corvus Corax Miniatures is a small hobby project created in 2013. Since then, four projects have successfully funded on Kickstarter and all have been fully delivered on time without any delays. The feedback from the backers have only been positive!
      The goal of this project is to raise funds for the production a total of four (4) miniatures for the Sons of Yetl Black. The miniatures will be cast in high quality, non-toxic resin. The scale of the miniatures is 35mm (measuring to the eyes in a standing, straight pose, although some characters may be slightly larger because they are supposed to be large characters).
