Hello everyone! It’s been a while since I made a Nendoroid review. For the past weeks I was busy playing MHFU studying for our exams. LOL.
Today we are going to take a look at another Nendoroid from the Cheeful Japan! Project, Nendoroid #220: Luka Megurine: Cheeful Version!
Luka Megurine, is a Vocaloid like Miku. I like her voice more than Miku because her voice is not high pitched(it’s just my personal opinion so please don’t hoard me). This Nendoroid is an improved version of Nendoroid#93 :Luka Megurine. Because it is a Cheerful Japan! product, everytime someone buys it, ¥1000 is donated to Japan Red Cross to help support the relief efforts for the victims of the tsunami and earthquake at Northern Japan. (All Cheerful Japan product were both limited and exclusive.) Click here for more info about Luka.
She comes with 2 pairs of arms ,a bent right arm, a bent left arm, a left arm with out the golden bracelet, a left hand holding tambourine and a bent leg which can be either used as a left or a right.
She has 2 hair parts, one with the usual style and another one with a pony tail.
The front hair pieces are not interchangeable because the pegs don’t have the same size. The one from the right also has more pegs than the one from the left.
They also did forget to include Tako-Luka! She is a fan made character. This is what you get when you imagine that Luka’s hair is an octopus. (Click here to read more about Tako-Luka.)
Nendo Luka also comes with this really beautiful postcard!
Now let’s move on to Luka’s faceplates. She come with three, standard, singing and a Double Lariat. When I was taking pictures of this Nendoroid, I noticed that Luka and Tako-Luka’s faceplates where a bit glittery (make-up maybe?). I’m not sure if the figure was made like that since our country has a tropical climate and it might have affected the figure.
For those who don’t know what Double Lariat is it’s a fan made song using Luka’s voice. It was originally uploaded on NicoNicoDouga but it has a Youtube version too. It was a really nice song! I placed the video below so be sure to watch it if you still haven’t. (I actually didn’t know that much about Luka until I made this review ^^;) Click here if you want to read more about Double Lariat
Let’s take a look at Luka’s voluptuous body! 〜(￣△￣〜)
Downsides of Luka Megurine: Cheerful Version
First, the stand gets in the way when you try to pose her. It sometimes gets in the way specially when you’re using her normal hair. Second, some parts of the figure had mistakes on the paint. It would have been better if it weren’t any of those. And last would be the loose ball joint of the pompoms. (￣ω￣)
Conclusion (8 out of 10)
It was still a good figure despite of the mistakes on the paint job. The new hair piece was a really good addition to it. Highly recommended to Luka fans. Also recommended for not Luka fans, if you like pink haired girls with big… o__o
And thus, concludes another Nendoroid review! This one took a while because I was busy and lazy at the same time. Also, I had a hard time trying to critic this figure for some reason. Anyway, Hope you enjoyed reading and see you on my next entry!!! (〜￣▽￣)〜
