Figure Japan Magazine to Include a Sakura Miku 1/10 Scale Figure, Preorders Open March 9th
Hobby Japan and Good Smile Company have collaborated to include a 1/10 scale figure of Hatsune Miku’s Spring-styled rendition, Sakura Miku, with a future Figure Japan magazine release. Along with the figure, the magazine itself will contain 44 pages of A4-size full color illustrations.
The creation of this figure involved a process of 3D scanning the original 1/8 scale figure designed by KEI, then scaling down the size, as well as modifying the pose and some of the design elements. Admittedly, the color scheme, pose and expression makes this an absolutely beautiful figure.
Preorders for the magazine and figure will open on Miku Day (March 9th JST), and will end on June 16th. The expected shipment period is October 2014. The price for the magazine and figure together is 7980 Yen ($78 USD). Orders can be made from Good Smile Company’s online shop.
