Hatsune Miku – Figma PVC/ABS (Max Factory)
Time for yet another new entry in the outstanding Figma series by Max Factory! This time it’s none other than Hatsune Miku, far and away the most famous of Vocaloid’s Character Vocal virtual idols. Ever wondered how best to broadcast Akiba-kei without developing tear-inducing otaku funk? Having something Miku-related around is a good start.
According to the official product entry over at figma.jp, the final product will indeed feature Miku with a metallic finish to her dress as seen in the profile shot as well as two faces and pairs of hands to match up with either the microphone set or her trademark green onions. Heh and if you were wondering, yes, her twin monster-length pigtails will also have joints at their bases so need to worry about them losing at least some articulation.
Personally I was going to pass on this release of Miku in order to get a shot at her previous incarnation in Nendoroid form from a while back… But there’s just something about that mic stand that’s compelled me to abandon her @o@ face featured in Nendoron’s sculpt. I’ll definitely be regarding this as the top must-get Miku figure for the forseeable future!
Hatsune Miku’s Figma concert takes place on September 10th with tickets going for 2,500 JPY (~25 USD).
