New figure announcements by MegaHouse

MegaHouse Corp, the creators of the Desktop Army line of deformed-style (aka, chibi) 80mm tall figures, has announced a collaboration to create an all new figure line called Desktop Singer. Three characters have had figures announced for this new line: Hatsune Miku, Megurine Luka and Kagamine Rin!

The reveal came today at the Mega Hobby Expo 2019 event in Akihabara, Japan. The designs were arranged by BLADE, and design-wise makes us think of a chibi form of the popular Frame Arms Music Girl Hatsune Miku figure.

Further details such as pricing and release dates are expected later, so stay tuned!

A new Hatsune Miku prize figure is hitting the arcades in time for the Winder season! Releasing this month from TAITO is the Hatsune Miku: Winter Live ver. prize figure, and with no less than 3 variations!

The illustration for this festive figure was drawn by Anko Taku, featuring Miku in a parade marching band style outfit with a microphone! The original outfit version will be releasing at arcades and online stores everywhere *sometime* this month. There is also an alternate red-skirted version that will be exclusive to SEGA arcades. Lastly, the 3rd version with eyes closed will be exclusive to TAITO’s online crane prize service.

This figure is part of a 3 release series, which began last month with the release of the Winter Live ver. Kagamine Rin prize figure, and next month in December will see the release of the Kagamine Len: Winter Live ver. figure!
