Today we’re going to review yet another version of Hatsune Miku.
It’s Nendoroid#299: Mikudayo- !!!
For those who don’t know, Mikudayo is a mascot created to promote a Vocaloid 3DS game by SEGA. It was suppose to replicate the Nendoroid-style appearance of the characters in game. The life-size costume received a lot of criticism from Japan’s side of the internet. Some people also took a liking to it and thus ended up being viral and eventually a Nendoroid figure of her.
To put it simply Nendoroid ==> Nendoroid in a game ==> Nendoroid costume of a Nendoroid in a game ==> Nendoroid of a Nendoroid costume of a Nendoroid in a game. Nendo-ception!
What’s inside the box(5/10)
- 2 pairs of twin tails ball jointed and not(ball jointed ones are attached on the picture)
- right hand holding a lollipop(Fujiya’s Pop Candy)
That was it. But to be honest I don’t think she needs a lot of accessories she was made after a life size body costume after all. On the other hand I think they should have made a small figure of a kid running away from her and a few arm and leg parts.
I really think they did a great job with this one. They really nailed the killer-like expression and the neckless-ness of the costume. The chubby fingers also looks really nice. (♥ó㉨ò)ﾉ♡
The folds on her clothes were placed strategically(I think) to make her look as chubby as possible!
The articulation of the figure was quite impressive for a Nendoroid. I really like how they added ball joints on her shoulder! But there are some issues that can’t be over looked.
She’s the cheapest Nendoroid I got so far. Her original retail price was 3,000JPY(1,293.00 PHP/36.5961 SGD/29.2660 USD/347,858.28 IDR) I got her for 1,760PHP(4,078.58 JPY/ 49.77 SGD/39.80 USD/473,028.03 IDR). Most of the time a cheap Nendoroid means less accessories, which I think is better than spending a large amount for limited edition one with the same number accessories as this one but much much more expensive.
I like this Nendoroid a lot. The main reason that I bought it was for the laughs and for some photo ideas that I’ve though of. I expected it to be ugly and I got the ugliness that I hoped for. But at the same time I also got a lot of good stuff with it.(Does that sound bad ass or what? haha) (ΦзΦ)
- Very Poseable.
- Her ugliness comes with a charm.
- Useful for scaring kids(still not tested)
- Comes with very few accessories.
- It’s annoying when a peg gets stuck on her head.
And thus, another Nendoroid review concludes.
