Rest of the Wonfest coverage listed up below.

Have you ever wanted to read someone’s mind? Or show the world how you’re feeling without having to announce it out loud? With Necomimi brainwave controlled cat ears, now you can. What Are They?

Mikatan has posted a little gallery of photos from the Hobby Maker Exhibition that follows Wonder Festival 2013, and to no one's surprise, it's mostly of Good Smile and Max Factory items.
There's some new stuff in here, and with all the WonFes news, I'm trying to remember what's super new and what's not. So let's go through a full rundown of what was in Mikatan's post, just to make sure we hit on everything, which you'll find after the jump. It was a bit long.
Phew, quite a mouthful!
Otto Björnik shares with us his latest completed-custom commission for a private collector in London. Dubbed "Kinuyo", this 7-inch Munny "was inspired by the owner's interest in aerial silk" mentioned Otto. Included in tis post is initial sketch for the design.

New 7" Mascot done by David Stevenson commissioned for by a KR forum board member, to which he added: "It follows on in my love of bright colours and my Jungle themes." Appreciate the effort put into this, David!
This Friday, Feb. 22, Gary Ham is releasing the artist proof of his Whoogle the Owl Android from the Android Series 3 set. Consisting of 32 Whoogles, each one comes signed and numbered, but 16 of them are special. Why? Because those 16 will be paired with a handcrafted wooden tree for Whoogle to perch on. For those pieces, Gary's signature and the number will be carved into the back of the 8-inch-by-6-inch tree; a neat little touch in my opinion.
All the releases will be on Gary's shop starting at 3 p.m. Pacific (6 p.m. Eastern, 11 p.m. GMT). That's when the 16 tree/Whoogle sets drop for US$95 each. One hour later, the remaining individual Whoogle's go on sale for US$20. There's a limit of one set/figure per person, so figure out which one you want and plan accordingly!
"Kisho the Urban Medic Ninja" is the name of this splendid 7" Munny customed by Roar With Lukas (Facebook / Trampt / Shop) - completed for the Art Without Borders Show @ Art Whino to Raise Awareness and Funds for the Doctors Without Borders Organization. One of my fav builds thus far, with a distinct design aesthetic of his own, IMHO.
It’s fitting that a toy brand called The Wandering Workshop has several toys that are ideally suited to wandering. These toys, made in Greece, are a beautiful example of what a small shop devoted to child-safe, imagination-friendly toys can do. I think the designs speak for themselves: the rich colors, the natural wood, the attention [...]

They measure in at 4 inches tall and are hand-painted resin pieces (no articulation). The can currently be purchased at the Understood Clothing Shop for $35.00 each. About Z0MZ: Z0MZ are [...]
The Smart Trike range is growing, with two eye-catching new designs of Smart Trike now available.
So last week, Phil Reed wrote a post called, “Five Reasons Star Wars Black Will Fail.” I quickly followed up with a point-by-point response, “Poe’s Point > Star Wars Black 6″ Doomed From the Start? (I’m not so sure),” and now Phil has his own point-by-point response, “Star Wars Black: A Response to Poe Ghostal.” If [...]
Clinton Yaws (www) reveals two custom Tuttz cats he recently did for Eric at Argonaut Resins - featuring a 6.5" and a mini 3.5". Splendid looking paintwork, with a back-story, makes these "fulfilling" work, IMHO. Read-ON, custom-toy-lovers!
"The 6.5" is titled "Sacred Heart of Gato-lupe" It is a take off of the Gato Muerto stickers and shirts done by Eric for last October. This custom shows a sacred heart of the Virgin Mary with the heart wrapped in daisy flowers. The head is painted as a cat skull. This is going to be sold in a package with the original 5x7 graphite sketch done to work out the idea. The sketch comes framed."Included is a Sacred Heart Necklace (from a line of jewelry Clinton is selling via his Etsy shop Lunar Opus)
"The Mini is titled "Catnip Trip" Tuttz. This piece is detailed with a catnip flower bloom that wraps from the back to front. The small two-lipped flowers are white and finely spotted with pale purple. They are showy and fragrant. Catnip is used as a recreational substance for pet cats' enjoyment. The box is hand-painted with the image from the back of the cats head."

X-23 was sort of a big deal back when she was released as part of Marvel Universe Series 3, not only because she was a clone of the ever-popular Wolverine, but also because she was developed using an entirely new female body mold.
