The first ever Miku With You themed Hatsune Miku Nendoroid is finally here and available for preorder!

The dancing fairy…
From the Hatsune Miku live event that takes place in China, “MIKU WITH YOU”, comes a Nendoroid of Hatsune Miku based on the 2019 main visual illustration! Using the main visual illustration by Zhibujiloom and the sub visual illustration by Fengye as a base, Miku’s innocent charm has been brought into Nendoroid form.
She comes with three face plates including a standard expression, a smiling expression and a winking expression. Her ballerina-like outfit has been faithfully recreated in Nendoroid form. She comes with a microphone, the panda Takene and a background plate as optional parts. Be sure to add her to your collection!

The Nendoroid will be available for preorder from Good Smile Company’s online shop for 5500 JPY ($53), and will accept reservations until November 12th, 2020. She’s expected to ship out in April 2021. You can also find here from these other online stores!

Happy August 31st, everyone! As a surprise for Hatsune Miku’s 13th anniversary, the main visual art for Hatsune Miku Magical Mirai 2020 in Tokyo has been released! Also designed by Fuzi Choco, the design keeps a colorful festive theme, but Miku takes on a fluffier and cuter looking outfit for the Winter Festival.

Magical Mirai 2020 in Tokyo is scheduled for December 18th~20th at Makuhari Messe in Chiba, Tokyo. Like the Osaka performance, however, the tickets will not be available for overseas due to pandemic concerns.

At long last, the Hatsune Miku Nendoroid from the Digimon Adventure 20th anniversary collaboration is now available for preorder!

Presenting a collaboration Nendoroid from Hatsune Miku and Digimon!
From the Hatsune Miku x Digimon Adventure Collaboration for Digimon Adventure’s 20th Anniversary comes a Nendoroid of Hatsune Miku wearing an Agumon kigurumi! She comes with three face plates including a standard expression, a curious blank expression and a smiling expression. Optional parts include a butterfly and goggles. The Nendoroid features advanced articulation, allowing you to create all kinds of poses. Be sure to add this very special Nendoroid to your collection!

Good Smile Company isn’t making getting this particular Nendoroid easy. She seems to be locked to the Japanese store for 5500 JPY, possibly due to licensing restrictions. However, the website Hobby Search seems to have the situation covered, and is allowing worldwide reservations! Besides Hobby Search, if other sources also become available, we’ll add them here!

The winner of the Snow Miku 2021 costume design contest has been announced! Although the announcement was supposed to be made during Magical Mirai 2020 in Osaka, that event was delayed due to COVID-19 related concerns. However, they didn’t want that to hold back the big reveal. The winner of next year’s Snow Miku costume design was Entry #6, illustrated by Anzu Natsumikan!

Matching with the theme of “Illumination”, the outfit features holiday light accents, and a clock-tower design on her cap! Natsumikan was quite ecstatic about the win, saying their dream of designing a Snow Miku had finally come true.

If everything goes according to plan, we should see more news about the upcoming Snow Miku 2021 event this October or November, including Nendoroid and Figma figure info. We’ll see you then!
