So far, this news is one of the most surprising announcement to be made in this year. Yep, I know that some of us have been waiting for Nendoroid Sakura Miku since her Plus version was released more than a year ago and finally, Mikatan has let loose the photos of Nendoroid Sakura Miku prototype last Friday.

Mikatan has also announced that Sakura Miku Fair is being held on GSC x Tetsujin Cafe and Project Mirai Cafe on April 7th. The event features a lot of Sakura Miku related goodies, including the newly annouced Nendoroid Sakura Miku.

Well, what do you think, Nendonesian? Do you prefer the Nendoroid Plus Sakura Miku‘s design or do you feel this one is better? ^^


In an other serious note, Mikatan also mentioned about the bootleg version of Nendoroid Sakura Miku that has been circulating in the market since a few months ago.

It seems that the official announcement of Nendoroid Sakura Miku is made to put an end to the bootlegs’ distribution. Here is a statement quoted from the page:

These products are currently on the market without the license permission of the Hatsune Miku copyright holder, Crypton Future Media. Similarly, the products are making use of the “Nendoroid” series appearance and logo, which are a trademarked product of Good Smile Company.
Both Crypton Future Media and Good Smile Company would like to promote sales of the official product, and stop the distribution of the bootleg figures. We request that when purchasing this figure, our customers take care to ensure that the figure is an authentic version.

Anyway, thanks for the news tip, Brian (Tomopop), WayneRosyid, and NurrafiIhsan!


Quick Update: Mikatan tweeted regarding some adjustments that are going to be made into the prototype once the Sakura Miku Fair event is finished. Woot! I cannot wait to see what kind of adjustments she was referring to. XD

    At first I was a bit disappointed that GSC didn’t give her the cherry hair pin, but then after I saw the sakura-shaped headphone, I think it’s a nice replacement ^^

    Maybe GSC thinks that sakura-shapped headphone with cherry hair pin is a bit overdo? ^^;

    I think GSC’s Sakura Miku is absolutely beautiful. I like her alot more than the PLUS design personally.
    I just hope she wont be an exclusive nendoroid

    Beautiful design,
    and those stupid bootlegs! 😦

    I really hope that GSC does a few major changes on the nendoroid…
    the design looks to common in my opinion….
    though,I also hope that the full-sized nendoroid gets the charm version’s cherries(the ones on her twintail)
