This news pretty much comes as a surprise yesteday, as GSC announced that Nendoroid Hatsune Miku: Yukata version Natsutsumaki and Nendoroid Kaname Madoka: Maiko version will be on sale exclusively at several events outside Japan.
Nendoroid Hatsune Miku is back in an elegant yukata once again!
From the ‘Character Vocal Series 01: Hatsune Miku’ comes a Nendoroid of Hatsune Miku wearing a all-new red yukata! The lovely yukata has a design which makes use of the ‘natsutsumaki’ flower, and her famous twin-tails are just as cute as ever! Even during the hot summer, Miku is ready to perform for everyone!
She comes with three different expressions including a standard smiling face, a charming winking expression and a chibi drooling face for all the delicious food she’ll find during the Summer festivals! She also comes with some extra items to ensure she has fun at the festival, including a candy apple and a balloon yo-yo!
This lovely Miku in summer Yukata is priced at 3200 Yen.
Nendoroid Kaname Madoka is back, but now she is dressed as a maiko (apprentice geisha), officially called as Nendoroid Kaname Madoka: Maiko version.
Nendoroid Madoka Kaname is back, this time dressed as an elegant maiko!
From ‘Puella Magi Madoka Magica’ comes a Nendoroid of Madoka Kaname dressed as an elegant maiko. She comes with three different expression parts including a standard expression, a smiling expression and a gentle expression with closed eyes.
