World Hobby Festival Ariake 17 takes place today, and I’m doing some last minute list checking before heading out the door to document the event. A few items of interest: REFLECT (Mitsumasa Yoshizawa) has a new original Yamashita Shunya-based kit coming out, Polygonia is putting out a Gurren Lagann Yoko (nice paired with Grimrock‘s Darry), and Kaoru of Klondike (Studio Saru Bunshitsu) has a great new original kit up for release; Vispo had some trouble with his Asuka and it sounds like she won’t make it out until Wonder Festival in February, but hopefully he’ll bring a display model. There are bound to be plenty of surprises in store, so check back in about 12 hours for first impressions and the eventual review! In the mean time, why not take a look at our coverage of WHF Ariake 16? (no more)
