Figures of Vocaloids themed on their Great Tunes and other goodies

One of the unique point of Wonder Festival is their "one-day-only copyright system". Wonder Festival organizer Kaiyodo accepts participants' in-advance application for the copyright and negotiates with right holders representing them. So every garage kits of commercial characters sold at the festival are legal. They are not infringing any rights.
Although, there has been few exception. To use a copyright of Vocaloid related figures are quite difficult. Because of those figure's expression often becoming too "sexy", right holder Crypton won't permit rights to them. Recently the "unspoken borderline" was acknowledged from experiences so the number of Vocaloid figures are gradually increasing.
