Nendoroid Hatsune Miku: Magical Mirai 2016 Ver!

For the first time over the course of three years, comes the first Hatsune Miku: Magical Mirai Nendoroid “Nendoroid Hatsune Miku: Magical Mirai 2016 Ver.“! The Nendoroid takes on the design of this year’s Magical Mirai main visual by LENA[A-7], and shows Miku in an adorable outfit adorned with lovely pair of ribbons.

From the ‘Character Vocal Series 01:Hatsune Miku’ comes a Nendoroid of Hatsune Miku wearing her outfit from the main illustration of the Magical Mirai 2016 event! She comes with both a smiling face plate as if happily singing as well as a cute winking face plate. A microphone stand as well as the ‘Cube’ from her illustration are also included as optional parts.
Enjoy the adorable, futuristic Miku illustrated by LENA[A-7] in Nendoroid size!

Preorder for the nendoroid will be available until October 5th at 12:00 JST, with the release date scheduled for March next year. She comes with a smiling face plate as well as a winking face plate, with optional accessories as a microphone stand and the Magical Mirai “Cube”.
