We’ve been waiting for it for a long time, but the wait is finally over! Preorders are now open for the Hatsune Miku: Vintage Dress Ver. 1/7 scale figure originally designed by Grizzry Panda, and picked up by Max Factory! The design is inspired by the original module design from Project Diva 2nd on the PSP.

A figure of the popular module from the Project DIVA game!
From SEGA’s rhythm game “Hatsune Miku -Project DIVA- F 2nd” comes a 1/7th scale figure of the “Vintage Dress” Miku module from the game!
The beautiful outfit features metallic and pearl paintwork to capture its eye-catching appearance, capturing the charming look from the game. The microphone in her hand makes use of translucent parts to capture the crystalline appearance, and the base also features a little crystal rose for even more to enjoy in your collection!

This beautiful Miku figure is available directly from Good Smile Company’s online shop for 16,800 Yen ($157 USD), and will be available to order until September 6th, 2018 at 12:00PM JST. She’s expected to ship around July 2019. She’s also available from the other partner shops linked below!
