Tomorrow is the start of another long weekend!

001

In preparation for the long weekend, everyone at GSC is hard at work to finish everything up! Amongst all the work, I spotted this interesting looking box on the design team boss’ desk!

That Momoclo photo on display is definitely rather interesting… but I think I’ll steal the box first, I can’t wait to see what is inside!

003

Inside was of course this lovely figure!

Cheerful JAPAN! Part 6:
Nendoroid KAITO: Cheerful Ver.!

As I’m sure a lot of you may have figured it out already, but this is effectively a KAITO resale – he is coming back as a Cheerful! version!

The damage that has occurred during the March 11 quake in the Touhoku region is astounding, and in order to get over the destruction caused there is a lot that needs to be done, and lots of support that needs to be given. Good Smile Company has formed a support group named ‘Cheerful Japan’ which will strive to support the relief efforts for as long as possible. For at least 1 year we be releasing charity products among other efforts to raise donation money for the cause. To everyone who supports the Cheerful Japan movement – thank you, and know that your money is going where it is needed!

Cheerful JAPAN!

For each figure sold, Good Smile will donate 1000JPY to aid relief efforts!

002

This is the original Nendoroid KAITO!

The Cheerful version includes all the expressions and optional parts that the original had!
The original KAITO was Nendoroid No. 58, he was first released in 2009/02! I can’t believe it was a year and a half ago that it first came out!

004

This is how he looks from the back!

KAITO’s trademark scarf looks so cute in Nendoroid form! You can also turn the scarf to the front if you prefer!

005

His lovely smiling expression!!

How much of my heart can you possibly steal, KAITO!!!? You’re just too adorable! I’m sure everyone who already has KAITO has loved using this expression with loads of other Nendoroids as well!

Plus, KAITO has to come with an ice cream!

It’s not an official thing, but KAITO has definitely become well known for his love of ice cream! He also of course comes with arm parts that let him hold it!
006

Plus the impressive, ‘Hero Expression’!!

A very different expression to the smiling face above, but this is also an expression that just can’t be left out! Parts to recreate the Hero pose are also included!

007

Now lets move onto the Cheerful Ver. parts!
First is a brand new cheering uniform!

As you can see, the body has had a complete makeover for the Cheerful version!
The idea behind this was from Oono, and handled by Sacchan – the newbies at GSC are really doing wonderful things!!

All the female Cheerful versions have had cheerleader outfits, so this is definitely what KAITO needed to blend in with them!

008

This is how he looks from the back!

KAITO’s image color is of course the lovely blue, so a blue cord is tied onto his back! The orange armband is also a lovely touch!
013

Let’s move onto the optional parts!

Pompons are included as with all Cheerful versions!
His pompons are a lovely bright blue – very suiting for KAITO!

They connect the same way as Cheerful Miku, Rin and Len – with a stub that connects to the arm! I know some people think pompons are girly, so that’s why I decided to give them to Miku instead. ๐Ÿ˜›
010

He also comes with folding fans!

You can have him hold both of them and he really looks ready to cheer on for everyone! I’d be glad to do my very best if I had KAITO cheering for me!

The hands for holding the fans are wearing white gloves!
There are standard hands as well, so there are all sorts of ways to pose him!

011

On the reverse side of the fans is the Japanese flag!

It’s been seven months since the disaster, but Japan is still far from what it was before the disaster… there are lots of people who are still having a very hard time. The Cheerful project has been going for a good six months now, and hopefully it has brought some smiles to the people who need it most.

012

He also comes with a head band!

The headband needs to be tied yourself (double-sided tape works too), and it really adds even more to the cheering atmosphere!

He also has these cheering hands!
Both arms are lifted up into the air!

009

Miku decided to try on KAITO’s outfit!

It’s just way too cute!!

It’s really, really amazing! I love the standard Miku, but when I saw this my heart just melted! I never thought a girl would look so great in guy’s clothing… ๐Ÿ˜›

My Melarus Slippers…

001

Have found a new figure!! (๏พŸโˆ€๏พŸ)๏พ‰

It’s the Lat-type Miku-san we saw last week in Sapporo! She came home to the GSC offices… although I couldn’t find her for ages… for some reason she was on the 6th floor where all the sculpting takes place… at least I found her!

Good slippers! Bring the figure to my desk now!


002

Miku Hatsune: Lat-type Ver.!

This Miku was also on display at WonFes… I upped a picture of her on twitter and she was possibly the most popular of all the images I upped: http://twitpic.com/3www1b

Take a look at this video: http://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm12976887

It’s a popular model of Miku created as a 3D model for MikuMikuDance (MMD) by Lat!

Those who use NicoNico might know that there is even a prize for the MMD video that gets the most “My List” adds on NicoNico! :O


004

This is how she looks from the back!

I wanted to take more of an angled shot but this was the best I could get… I promise that even the parts you can’t see are made just the like Lar-type model!
 
 
The hair is made from stunning clear plastic!
When you look at her from different angles the coloring on the hair varies slightly… it’s really fun to look at. I actually sat spinning her stand around for awhile just staring at how the hair looked different from different angles…


003

Lat-type Miku’s cute red glasses!

Another thing about Lat-type Miku is that she looks a little bit younger than the normal Miku… which is definitely visable in this figure. I don’t know how anyone couldn’t fall in love with face!!


005

And a red ring on her arm!

The normal Miku has a ’01’ symbol on her arm, but Lat-type Miku instead has a red band that goes around her entire arm! If you squint you can even read the tiny writing… I wonder how this is going to be mass-produced…?


007

The checked chain is really pretty!
You can see it at the back behind the skirt here…
 
 
And look at those thighs!! ๐Ÿ˜€


006

She also has a lovely little neck-tie

Another part of Lat-type Miku that sets her apart from normal Miku… the original Miku’s tie was much longer! Lat-type Miku’s tie kind of looks like it’s fluttering upward as well which really gives a dynamic feeling to the figure… it really seems like she’s dancing!

008

A close-up on her headphones!

This set of headphones is also a Lat-type specific design! They are made using 3D data so they are pretty nicely detailed… definitely worth a close look!


012

Her mike and glasses can be removed!

She even comes with an alternate mike that suits her better when she’s not wearing her glasses!

As you can see the mike is black and features a different design to the standard mike. (Apparently this was a request from Aki :P)

010

1/8th scale Miku Hatsune with Lat-type Miku Hatsune!

The original Miku was released all the way back in September 2008… but if you were watching the WonHobby TV9 Live Broadcast then you’d already know that…
 
1/8th scale Miku is getting a re-release!
 
 
She will be re-announced at the same time as Lat-type Miku is announced! They look great together, so if you ever grabbed the original consider picking her up this time!

16 days to the Wonder Festival!

Yesterday I went over the first of the WonFes products, Nendoroid Mato & Yomi Set!

Today I’m going to be looking at the second!

S-Sorry… I think we added too many things…

During my trip to China in December I was making sure that she was being made just right!

002

Let’s get started on the review!

This is how the packaging looks!

The pack is filled with extra parts! A Nendo Petite sized snowman, two different expressions, hair parts for a Hachune version, different hand parts, headsets…. and that’s not all!

She even comes with a Miku-shaped ice tray!

You can see the ice tray’s blue outline in the back of the blister pack.

003

A fully posable Snow Miku!

She’s back again for the 62nd Sapporo Snow Festival, to commemorate the giant snow sculpture of Miku at the event!

Some of you might be wondering about that.

SEGA announced it yesterday, but…
A new module featuring Snow Miku is coming to the PSP game ‘Hatsune Miku -Project DIVA- 2nd’, as well as the arcade game ‘Hatsune Miku Project DIVA Arcade!

Snow Miku is going to be bouncing and dancing around in the game, so it’s only fair that the Nendoroid can do it as well!! If you’re looking for more info about the module, take a look at SEGA’s site below:

And if you’re looking for more info about the Snow Festival, you can find more information on Crypton’s website: ย

[SNOW MIKU for SAPPORO 2011 ]

http://www.crypton.co.jp/mp/pages/special/snowmiku2011/ (Japanese only)

004

This is how she looks from the back!

The silver snowflakes in her hair look just the same as the previous version… still just as beautiful as ever! The hair also uses clear plastic just like before… isn’t it beautiful!?

005

Let’s compare her with the last Snow Miku!

The left is the 2011 Snow Miku, and the right is the 2010 Snow Miku.

This year’s looks a little more grown up, but they’re both adorable!

006

You can put the new parts on the old Snow Miku!

The scarf, earmuffs and gloves all fit her perfectly!

Unfortunately the expressions are not exchangeable due to some changes in the design. (Although I’m fairly sure the expressions will fit on any new Nendoroids)

If you want to put the new expressions on the old Miku, you’ll have to use the new fringe parts as well!

007

Anyway, let’s get back to the new Miku’s review!

She comes with this embarrassed face!

Snow Miku was never based on any illustrations or anything, so all the expressions were designed by Kawapon. They were still being modified at the very last moments of being made… I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

008

The famous ‘Hachune Face!’

Although it’s a different Hachune face to the previous figure!

Of course she also comes with a ice leek to hold!

And using the new posability you can make epic poses like the one above!

009

You can take off all the winter clothes!

The scarf, earmuffs and gloves can all be removed! In place of the earmuffs you can put her black headset on for a more Miku-esque pose!

010

Nendoroid Petite-sized Snowman!

It’s got a Hachune face! And the arms are made of ice leeks! It’s adorable!

And because it’s Nendoroid Petite size…

015

You can switch heads with other Petites!

It uses the normal connector used in Nendo Petites, so you can try it with all sorts of characters!

Bonus Scene!

This is how she looks with the charming CHANร—CO Face!
ย 
The eye color even matches! It looks great! This face along with the Hachune face… I think I’m going to die from cuteness!!! Aaahh!!

012

Nyaa Face!

This one comes from Nendoroid Shiki Ryougi!

I wanted to try and pose her in a slick Shiki-like pose! It’s a lot of fun trying to think up and pose the fully posable Nendoroids like this!!

013

The first public view of this extra…

The ice-tray!

It is made of a very soft silicone-like material. This obviously came from the idea of making Miku into your very own ice sculptures for the snow festival!

I’ll post the results on the blog at a later stage!
