She comes adorned with additional Sakura flowers to her lightly-colored twintails, a noticeably larger pair of her signature cherry hair holders, and her very own Sakura-shaped stand.

She’ll be available via the local arcades by spring 2020. Alternatively, you can find her from the many online retailers when she’s available.

The long-awaited Figure-rise LABO Hatsune Miku V4X has finally made her debut at the most recently held C3AFA TOKYO. She’s the second figure kit in Bandai’s Figure-rise LABO series, a marriage of figure and plastic model, and is incorporated with layered injection technology to achieve different skin textures and gradation for her twintails.

In addition to the layered injection technology, her sleeves and thigh-high boots are given pearl coating treatment to express the sheer feeling of the fabric. The number of parts can be seen in the gallery below, with the dry transfer decals and marking seals to feature her iconic “01” shoulder mark, sleeve, and skirt design.

She is priced at 6,000 yen (tax excluded), with release date set for December 2019. Preorders will open soon.
