The Nendoroid celebrating 5 years of Hatsune Miku Symphony, and co-designed by Rella, is finally here and ready for preorder!

From “Character Vocal Series 01: Hatsune Miku” comes a Nendoroid of Hatsune Miku based off of the main visual from the full orchestra concert “Hatsune Miku Symphony 2020 ~5th Anniversary~”. The Nendoroid faithfully captures the beautiful design originally illustrated by Rella. She comes with two face plates including a smiling expression and an expression with closed eyes.

Her gramophone-inspired dress has been recreated in detail with translucent parts and gold paintwork. The Nendoroid also comes included with a box-style stand that can also be used as a storage box. Additionally, a joined hands part that can be used with Nendoroid Hatsune Miku: Symphony 2018-2019 Ver. (sold separately) to display them holding hands is included as well. Be sure to add her to your collection!



There is also a comment from the costume illustrator, Rella:

Once again, congratulations to Hatsune Miku Symphony on its 5th Anniversary! For this special occasion, I designed the symphony version of Hatsune Miku in a gramophone-inspired outfit. The gramophone is “a device for recording and reproducing sound.” Using the gramophone as a base, I aimed to create a somewhat different outfit for Miku that fit the Hatsune Miku Symphony theme of orchestral performances of Vocaloid masterpieces.

When I saw the initial painted prototype, I was so happy to see that so much attention to detail was put into the figure, and that the gold, pearl and transparent textures of her outfit were preserved beautifully in Nendoroid form! Thank you, Good Smile Company!

The nendoroid is available for preorder from Good Smile Company’s online shop for 7800 Yen ($74.99 USD), and will be available for preorder until January 28th at 12:00 PM JST, and GSC shop orders will also get an exclusive 5th anniversary base. She’s expected to ship out in August of 2021, but the uncertainty of COVID-19 may cause delays in overseas shipments. A safer bet for overseas buyers would be Tokyo Otaku Mode, but it does end up a bit more expensive (and no bonus base).
