«©NCSX» The Wonder Festival kicks off in Japan on July 26 and visitors to the Makuhari Messe exhibition space where it's being held will find a bounty of toy kits to stare at, appreciate, and purchase. One such toy will be Max Factory's figma Miku Hatsune Live Stage Version which features our favorite aquamarine-haired idol whose voluminous hair is but one of her special attributes. NCS won't be able to snag any of the Miku figmas from the Wonder Festival since only 3000 will be made available. NCS will however be able to import the toy when it is released on Max Factory's own website in November 2009. Preorders are welcome.

«©NCSX» The Wonder Festival kicks off in Japan on July 26 and visitors to the Makuhari Messe exhibition space where it's being held will find a bounty of toy kits to stare at, appreciate, and purchase. One such toy will be Good Smile Company's Miku Hatsune TV Commercial Version which features our favorite aquamarine-haired idol whose voluminous hair appears to have a life of its own.

NCS will however be able to import the toy when it is released on GSC's own website in November 2009. Preorders are welcome to ship in late Nov 2009.
«©NCSX» Panson Works' renditions of pop culture icons follow some simple artistic guidelines which NCS lists below:
» Keep it simple - the characters are built from basic shapes such as circles, squares, rectangles, and ovals which haven't been adulterated by unnecessary flair or artsy-fartsy noise.
» Beady eyes - You won't see any pupils, just black pools of darkness that can be shaped to convey blank emotion, deviousness, anger, etc.
The design principles described above are used to create two One Piece T-shirts (free-size) which feature characters from One Piece in all of their simple, beady-eyed glory. Preorders ship in Oct 09.
