At last weekend's Wonder Festival in Japan, there was an array of plastic figurines and models on display. Many of them were cute, a few of them were scary, and some of them were oh so very macho.

Here's a look at a smattering of the tough figurines and models on display. Robots, mecha, monsters, and muscles—stuff like that.
