Some of you may remember our previous announcement of the first round of Hatsune Miku V3 merchandise offered by COSPA. They have just announced a second wave of new Miku V3 merch, and since Kaito and Meiko have both since gotten their own V3 release, they also have goods included in this announcement!
The list of items include full-graphic T-shirts, tapestries and straps. The delivery time varies between February and March 2015, depending on the item. As a reminder, Japanese sizes differ from U.S. sizes. A Japanese XL is the same size as a U.S. Large, and a Japanese Medium is the same size as a U.S. Small, etc. Prorders don’t have an actual end date, and will close once the order limits are reached.

COSPA will be releasing rubber keychain and strap sets of Crypton Future Media’s characters this October. All Cryptonloids are featured, which includes Hatsune Miku, Megurine Luka, Kagamine Rin and Len, Meiko and Kaito. Each character comes in two styles: A keychain for use on backpacks, handbags or key sets, or a strap that fits into the headphone jack of any mobile device.
Hatsune Miku: Keychain | Strap
Megurine Luka: Keychain | Strap
Kagamine Rin: Keychain | Strap
Kagamine Len: Keychain | Strap
Meiko: Keychain | Strap
Kaito: Keychain | Strap
The straps can be found on Amiami for just 648 Yen each, and their small size also makes them convenient to bundle with other orders without increasing the shipping costs (shipping for the strap alone would normally be more than the strap itself). They are available for preorder now, and scheduled to release sometime in late October.

One of the largest Vocaloid albums to date, and likely the largest digital release, Vocaloid Parade was a massive collaboration project that brought together the efforts of 35 different producers from all over the world for a total of 36 songs. Despite the album’s massive size, it has a rather tiny price point: Only $9.99 for all 36 songs. It features several vocaloids including Hatsune Miku, Kagamine Rin, GUMI, Yuzuki Yukari and more. Give the crossfade below a listen.
If the album or just a single song tickles your fancy, you can find it available on all global iTunes stores: https://itunes.apple.com/album/bokaronoparedo-feat.-chu-yinmiku/id872541010

After the success of the past WeLoveFine shirt designs in collaboration with Crypton Future Media and the community, WeLoveFine is further expanding their selection with several new designs: Two new tops for Rin and Len fans, and 5 new Hatsune Miku shirts based on judging staff favorites from the design contest.
The previous “I am Hatsune Miku” tanks proved quite popular, so a Rin and Len version are being added into the mix. Be sure to check out the full selection available from WeLoveFine’s site. Lastly, keep an eye out for possible upcoming promotions between MikuFan and WeLoveFine. More announcements hopefully coming soon!
A new collaboration from Piapro has been announced alongside Good Smile Company for both a pouch design, and a charm to go with it.
Collaboration A and B are to be themed for spring time, and involve musical instruments. Collaboration A is for the pouch itself, which can have any number or combination of the Crypton Future Media Vocaloids on the design. Collaboration B is for a charm to go with the pouch, requiring that it have the desired themes, and be a charm of either Miku, Miku and Luka, Len and Rin, or Kaito and Meiko.
This recent collaboration will last from November 7th, to November 18th. Like recent Piapro collaborations, the requirements have been very specific for participation and submission:
- Use their template in .psd format as your starting point
- Keep the file in .jpg format when complete, but keep the original .psd file if you are chosen as a winner
- If using transparency, make a note of it in the description for your artwork
- The designs must have a spring and musical-instrument theme.
- If submitting a pouch for collaboration A, use Crypton Future Media characters only,
- If submitting a charm for collaboration B, keep the characters limited to Miku, Miku and Luka, Len and Rin, or Kaito and Meiko
- Recommended, but not required that the colors be in CMYK format so the image you see would be the same as the printed colors when completed.
Once the submission is ready, tag it with ＧＳＣ２０１３Ａ for collaboration A, or ＧＳＣ２０１３Ｂ for collaboration B. If you do not have a keyboard to type these specific characters, copy and paste them into the tag-box before submitting your design to Piapro. The Deadline for both categories is November 18th, 2013, 17:00 JST, and will not accept late entries due to different time zones.
