Along with the announcement of the Snow Miku 2022 & Rabbit Yukine design finalists, Good Smile Company decided to announce and tease several new Hatsune Miku figures, and give updates on others. Check them out below! If you’d like to watch the live stream event, there’s a recording available on YouTube.

Nendoroid Hatsune Miku if

Based on Hatsune Miku’s earlier concept art/prototype design by KEI, before her finalized 2007 software box design. Despite this, the outfit was popularly drawn and admired by fans. This Nendoroid is still in development, and further details such as price and release date are TBA.

Nendoroid & Scale Figure of Hatsune Miku NT

Hatsune Miku NT, the latest version release of Hatsune Miku’s software, is having her design transformed into a scale figure and Nendoroid! There’s no further details on the scale figure, such as a prototype or scale size. The figure will be produced by Good Smile Company. The Nendoroid had its unpainted prototype teased, but details about a price and release date for both figures are still TBA.

Hatsune Miku: Love is War Refine Ver. 1/8 Scale Figure

The classic Hatsune Miku: Love is War ver. scale figure is being refined in a new release! The colors and sculpting have been reworked to more faithfully match the original artwork by Miwa Shirou. The scale figure is scheduled to become available for preorder from Good Smile Company’s online shop on April 30th at 12:00 PM JST.

Nendoroid Hatsune Miku: Magical Mirai 2021 Winter Festival Ver.

A Nendoroid based on the winter theme Hatsune Miku Magical Mirai 2021 is being created! So far there’s only a glimpse of her sleeve in this picture, holding hands with the Summer Matsuri ver. Nendoroid. Additional details such as release date and pricing are still pending.

Nendoroid Doll Snow Miku

Good Smile Company’s Nendoroid Doll series continues to grow with the announcement of Nendoroid Doll Snow Miku! The above image of the (near?) final design was revealed, so we can expect info regarding preorders fairly soon. Stay tuned!

The Nendoroid celebrating 5 years of Hatsune Miku Symphony, and co-designed by Rella, is finally here and ready for preorder!

From “Character Vocal Series 01: Hatsune Miku” comes a Nendoroid of Hatsune Miku based off of the main visual from the full orchestra concert “Hatsune Miku Symphony 2020 ~5th Anniversary~”. The Nendoroid faithfully captures the beautiful design originally illustrated by Rella. She comes with two face plates including a smiling expression and an expression with closed eyes.

Her gramophone-inspired dress has been recreated in detail with translucent parts and gold paintwork. The Nendoroid also comes included with a box-style stand that can also be used as a storage box. Additionally, a joined hands part that can be used with Nendoroid Hatsune Miku: Symphony 2018-2019 Ver. (sold separately) to display them holding hands is included as well. Be sure to add her to your collection!



There is also a comment from the costume illustrator, Rella:

Once again, congratulations to Hatsune Miku Symphony on its 5th Anniversary! For this special occasion, I designed the symphony version of Hatsune Miku in a gramophone-inspired outfit. The gramophone is “a device for recording and reproducing sound.” Using the gramophone as a base, I aimed to create a somewhat different outfit for Miku that fit the Hatsune Miku Symphony theme of orchestral performances of Vocaloid masterpieces.

When I saw the initial painted prototype, I was so happy to see that so much attention to detail was put into the figure, and that the gold, pearl and transparent textures of her outfit were preserved beautifully in Nendoroid form! Thank you, Good Smile Company!

The nendoroid is available for preorder from Good Smile Company’s online shop for 7800 Yen ($74.99 USD), and will be available for preorder until January 28th at 12:00 PM JST, and GSC shop orders will also get an exclusive 5th anniversary base. She’s expected to ship out in August of 2021, but the uncertainty of COVID-19 may cause delays in overseas shipments. A safer bet for overseas buyers would be Tokyo Otaku Mode, but it does end up a bit more expensive (and no bonus base).
