With all of the buzz about Toy Fair, I was wondering if anyone has been following the news at Wonder Festival very closely. I was specifically wondering if anyone heard mention of the new(ish) Bandai/Halfeye Studio Transforming Escaflowne that was shown back in late 2010. Is that still happening?

Haven't heard anything new about the transforming Escaflowne, it's possible that Bandai lost interest, maybe they couldn't keep the price within budget since Studio Halfeye is a very expensive company (though they do some affordable stuff). I haven't seen any Bandai coverage from Wonderfest, I'm not even sure they were there.

I watch for all of my Japanese toy news, I'll post back if anything turns up there.

Thanks, I figured you'd be the one who knew... Smile

It would be a shame if that Escaflowne got spiked. It was a beautiful piece of toy engineering.

You can find some pretty good WF coverage here:

IIRC Bandai doesn't attend WF. There's some Bandai only Tamashii Nations event later on that they dominate.

You talking about this?

IMO if it's been 2 years and a product isn't out, it's unlikely.
