Following news that Mahou Tsukai no Yoru has been delayed to “sometime” in 2011, Type-Moon have revealed that we might hear something of it at the summer Wonder Festival 2011 in July.
Type-Moon say that the following series will be present at the summer Wonder Festival in some form or the other:
- Tsukihime and the Melty Blood series
- Fate/stay Night and Fate/hollow Ataraxia
- Fate/Zero and Fate/Unlimited Codes
- Mahou Tsukai no Yoru
Type-Moon mention “Saber Lily” in connection with Fate/Unlimited Codes, which is a 9,800 yen figure based on a costume created for Saber in the PlayStation 2 version of the game. Two versions of this figure were released in 2009 by ALTER and Good Smile Company, but a new version (created by Gift) will be available in June.
We assume the listing means that Saber Lily will also be available at the summer Wonder Festival. Here are a couple comparison images, but you can see more of the new version at Akiba Hobby and the link above.

Note: Something to keep in mind — Wonder Festival is an event primarily centred around figurines, models and garage kits, so more than likely, T-M are referring to the presence of merchandise from each of these series.
