Nendoroid Hatsune Miku 2.0 is available for pre-order starting today, plus she is also previewed by Mikatan!
The electronic diva is back again as Nendoroid No.300!
From the ‘Character Vocal Series 01: Hatsune Miku’ comes a new version of the much loved Nendoroid Hatsune Miku, dressed up in a newly sculpted outfit! She comes with both the winking expression and the excited expression that featured in the opening movie of the ‘Hatsune Miku and Future Stars Project mirai’ game.
Miku 2.0 also comes with all new optional parts such as a keyboard and a guitar for some brand new poses, and even comes with some alternate parts that allow you to pose her sitting down! It’s the same Miku everyone has come to love with an extra touch! She also still comes with her famous leeks! ♪
The 300th Nendoroid is scheduled for May 2013 release, priced at 3900 Yen.
Here are a few official shots for your inconvenience:
There are several ways to pre-order Nendoroid Hatsune Miku 2.0, but a special Nendoroid Pouch: Hatsune Miku version will be included as a pre-order bonus if you purchase it at either Good Smile Online Shop or Good Smile x Karaoke Tetsujin Cafe.
Orders can be placed between December 27th, 2012 from 12:00 JST until January 26th, 2013 at 21:00 JST.
Anyway, Mikatan has also previewed this cute Nendoroid today and she mentioned about the differences between Miku 2.0 and the predecessor, aside from the optional expressions, body parts, and accessories:
- The new version is completely re-sculpted.
- Features a
smallerslightly slimmer body compared to the old version.
- Metallic paint finish on the outfit.
She also briefly explained the new faceplate system that will come with Nendoroid Hatsune Miku 2.0.
Here is what Mikatan said about the new system:
You can now switch out expression parts just by removing the front fringe part!
This is just the prototype, so the colors on the inside are not final yet, but this is definitely a much-wanted upgrade! Up until now whenever you wanted to switch expressions you needed to pull the neck joint out, remove the fringe and then pull the expression out of the back of the head and put it all back together… but from Nendoroid No.300 the switching process will be a simpler task!
Those who are worried about using other Nendoroid expressions – they’ll all work as they always have!
Ah … so the old Nendoroid expressions can be put into the new Nendoroid, but I still have no clue whether it will work the other way around.
What do you think about Nendoroid Hatsune Miku 2.0 and the new faceplate system?
