WonderFest Winter 2014 Round-up

So last weekend, WonderFest happened again and there was a couple new, fanmade figures for Shaman King and Jumbor. This is one of those few days when companies turn a blind-eye to these creators making and selling these figures (often garage kits). So if you didn’t buy the figures directly from the creators, the only way to you can get them is second hand. Disappointingly, there was no news of new official figures from Sentinal, about Hao or Anna.

If I find some more… I’ll update this post!

Jumbor – Genber


Unpainted, next to capsule



Center- Genber

This is a small (capsule-sized), unpainted figure from OUTERRIM.

Putting a spoiler tag here, since the English scanlations aren’t up to this… yet…

Nipper's Custom

Partially completed, un-painted. Jumbor volume 5 in background for reference.

This garage kit is medium in size. I’m not sure if it was released during this Wonderfest or still in prototype.


 Jumbor – Old Man

It’s a fully painted figure of the old man from the 2nd Jumbor Oneshot! It was sold as a garagekit (unpainted)



Jumbor – Destrich

Another Earthmover from Jumbor! This unpainted Garage kit is 170mm tall, and was selling for 7000yen. This is a slightly different design than the one from last year ( )

You can find the official blog of the creator here:

All your news, all in one place!

Okay,  so there has been a bunch of Shaman King/Jumbor news that came out over the last few days. So here’s the highlights!


Jumborvol7JPNOn December 4th, the 7th volume of Jumbor (ユンボル -JUMBOR-) will be released in Japan for 500円. Clicking the cover image will expand into a larger version. If you know Japanese, here’s the summary from the back of the volume:


ゲンバー大王が支配するワールド・ザンドに重機人間・ユンボルとして蘇った伝説の工事職人 バル・クロウ。迫りくるゲンバーの手下やかつての仲間との対決を潜り抜けた先に待っていたのは、ニッパー対ショベルという弟子と実の息子の本気対決!! はたして、この勝負にどんな結末が待ち受けているのか…!?

The Shaman King Remix volumes will be reprinted and re-released in Japan starting on Jan 31st, 2014. The Remix editions are a low cost version of the original “Kang Zeng Bang” or “Perfect Editions” of the Shaman King manga. They do not contain any color pages, and have combined multiple volumes into each single “Remix volume.” Typically these are sold bi-weekly at Japanese convenience stores, and rarely sold online. The original Remix volumes also contained a short 3-5 manga chapter in them. There is no news if these will be included, or if new content will be added.

These volumes are probably being reprinted because of the popularity of the Shaman King Flowers volumes.

The Shaman King Kang Zeng Bang Fanbook titled “Mentalite” will be released in Italian in March 2014 from Star Comics. This news came from an advertisement in one of their recent releases. Star Comics has previously released all 27 volumes of the Shaman King Kang Zeng Bang and as of this month will have released 6 volumes from the Jumbor manga series.
