Nendoroid Miku Hatsune




What better way to start the new year than reviewing my very first Nendoroid. I ordered her from Hobby Search and she cost me about 2,715 Yen, not including shipping. She's already sold out... again, but you might be able to find her elsewhere. Miku Hatsune is probably the most popular of all nendoroids, so you've almost certainly read several reviews and even more likely seen pictures and/or videos all over the internet by now. I don't think she needs an introduction, but if you don't know about her, check out the Vocaloid wikipedia page. I'm a latecomer to the Nendoroid fanfare, but now that my first is here, there's likely going to be more coming soon. In fact, I have another one pre-ordered for this month, and another in February.








Miku Hatsune in Nendoroid form is absolutely adorable. I guess I don't really need to tell you that though. She comes with 2 extra heads, 1 extra hair piece, a bent arm and a leg with a bent knee, her trusty leek, and a hand to hold it in that works on either arm. She also comes with a stand that she sort of sits on. Her headset covers up her ears and is required to remove in order to take the hair off. Her skirt is removable and her pantsu have a cute ribbon on them. Miku's twin tails are also removable, and in fact they fall out if you mess with them too much. Her head is heavy and her body is light, but her twin tails balance her out pretty well so you don't necessarily have to use her stand, I just prefer to use it for added stability. Well, other than that I can't say much about her. If you're into Miku, Nendoroids or cute figures this is a sure-fire addition to your collection. I might have gotten Nendoroid fever.

This Miku Nendoroid is unbearably cute. Very nice buy. It's a good thing it's a real figure! Otherwise... you know what happens.

You've got the bug now, just like me. Once you get one it seems you are doomed for sure.

huhu thanks everyone, I'm really happy to FINALLY own her, I can foresee some outtings with her already.

as for how many figures in 2009... ~uguu, it all depends on money, hopefully we'll double our collection with GOOD figures though at the least.

James said...

I believe that nearly everyone who collect figures have Miku in the collection , figma , nendo or scale :D

Now you have her too , congrats :p

Oh yeah. Recently, I FINALLY got this figure thanks to this guy: http://tinyurl.com/yokatta

I was looking around for this figure for quite sometime now, but since it was sold out everywhere it's very hard to get one.
