What started out as just a prank is now a reality: Nendoroid Sakura Mikudayo is up for preorder and ready to invade your collection (and eventually the world). Preoders are available starting today until June 3rd at 9:00 PM JST.
“Originally created as an April Fools joke in 2013, the cherry blossomed themed version of Mikudayo, ‘Sakura Mikudayo’ is now actually being released! Her strangely thin twin-tails have been covered in cherry blossom patterns for a cuter look than ever before!
Optional parts include three-color ‘hanami dango’ for enjoying the cherry blossoms, as well as Mikudayo’s favorite food – tuna sushi! The incredible detail of the sushi that shares a pink color with the cherry blossoms has Mikudayo most pleased! Be sure to add the late-blooming Sakura Mikudayo to your collection!”
As a character with a fixed (and somewhat creepy) expression, there are no additional faceplates, but you do get a few food accessories for her to enjoy (and hopefully spare devouring your soul). An exclusive bonus item is available only to those that buy from GSC’s online store: A pop candy (cherry flavor color). Alternate online stores also have the figure available, but without the bonus.
Lastly, the original Mikudayo nendoroid is also back up for grabs, with the same end date for preorders. If you don’t yet have the original, ordering both together is a great way to save on shipping (ordering both also makes you insane for wanting two monsters in your home). Both figures are expected to ship August 2015.
