Just Another Post

21 11 2008

Well I finally got around to it and picked up my figurine from a friend who I did a group order with a few months back from HobbyLink Japan it’s been many months of waiting but DAMN it was worth it. So I present to you my readership Miku Hatsune scaled to 1/8 pre-painted figurine by the GoodSMILE Company. Miku Hatsune for those who do not already know her is the mascot for the first installment of the Yamaha Corporation’s Vocaloid2 Character Vocal Series released mid 2007. She comes with no extra bits apart from the base to attach her to. Apparently her skirt is removable if you take her apart drop the skirt and you can see her in all her panty glory 😀 I’ll have to say I am amazed at the quality of the model; it seems that a lot of attention to detail had been put into creating it. With little details on her skirt, the tiny words ‘Hatsune Miku’ on the tattoo on her arm, the tag on her shirt again in tiny font spelling out ‘Vocaloid’, the extra details on her skirt and her shirt collar are simply amazing. Of course a quick look underneath reveals white panties with a teal coloured bow. Build quality is great the model feels sturdy and the base is not hard to attach to her you can even move her around a bit to change her orientation. The colours are practically dead on with the actual illustrations of Miku, glossy stockings and silver metallic shirt definitely makes her very eye catching. Now onto my gripes with this particular figurine, although the workmanship and design is spot on my main gripe is small paint markings on parts of her hair and a few marks revealing where the parts were machined although not all of the markings are apparent. Anyway aside from those problems this figurine of Miku Hatsune is one of the most amazing figs I’ve seen in a while, character design and colour spot on with the illustrations. All the while being very eye catching. My final score would be a 9 out of 10 with one point off for the blemishes.
