Yay! ! Its the first figure review of this blog! This review will be covering Max Factory’s 100th Figma, Hatsune Miku Append ver.
Being an economical but hardcore otaku, I decided that a twin tailed vocaloid would be perfect as my first figma, so after some eBay searches and din dins, I stumbled upon what would change my otaku history forever. . . . . .
More Box Content:
The main figure itself, the Hatsune Miku Append Ver. costume looks quite smexy don’t you think? If not for the “mature” feel to it, I probably would have just bought Project Diva and enjoyed some songs and mizugi XD.
Outside the box and packaging, due to limited time (yet again) I decided to remove the hastle of balancing her hair and just placed her in her stand (Note: She can stand without it btw)
Articulation wise, without the stuff attached in her waist, is quite standard. Her hair has their own joints which provides good movement, same is true with her arms but it exposes the elbow joint a bit.
Some box art poses:
Same pose as the scale figure version. Since the hole for the stand has been occupied by the “tail” you have to use the waist clip. If only the society is unfair I could’ve bought it instantly. . . . I guess I really have to work hard.
Overall, the figure is a good buy, despite not being too playable and the amount of fragile parts that you have to take care of but hey! if you’re a hardcore Miku fan, then you should go and buy her but if you happen to be a first timer in the world of figma I suggest you get the SOS Brigade Chief, Haruhi Suzumiya.
That concludes my first review, please do expect more to come. Now time for my to get some nom noms.
Btw, if you’re asking where I bought her, I was able to win her at Greattoysonline.com’s eBay account for a considerable price, Php 1800 (3600 yen, includes shipping, import tax and VAT if you’re in the Philippines) if you’re looking for reasonable prices for these then you should go and check Greattoysonline out.
