Tokyo’s WonFestival ’09 Cancelled

Tokyo’s Wonder Festival or WonFes for 2009 Winter has been canceled due investigation of the four-floor-high escalator accident, 10 people or attendees of this event were injured as they say last August 2008 held in Summer Tokyo. The next event is said to be on February 15, 2009. Due to the investigation it was canceled.

The accident  was about the elevator which changed direction, and 10 people were involve in this incident. Executives of this event are still thinking of a sure date of the event regarding the cancellation of the said date.

The Tokyo Wonder Festival is an annual event to display and sell “garage kits”, which are sculptures that usually replicate anime and game characters, but also popular mecha/sci-fi characters and creatures. These models are extremely detail oriented, and many of these sculptures appear in very small quantities due to the amateur nature of their reproduction. Unusually skilled artisans are promoted specifically during the “wonder showcase”, in which their works are given special attention and limited quantities of their masterpieces are sold for high prices to avid collectors. Many of the garage kits now sold at the Wonder Festival are oriented around female characters, often displayed in very exposing and often erotic positions. The market for these figures has spread overseas, and they have now become increasingly popular among collectors in many countries outside of Japan.
