GSC’s collaboration with FamilyMart and Crypton Future Media are still running, and this summer they are going to produce the FamilyMart version of Hatsune Miku, Kagamine Rin, and Kagamine Len in Nendoroid version.
Yes, similar to the previous campaign, you can only get the Nendoroid by testing your luck in a kuji (raffle) with each draw cost 800 Yen.
Aside from the voting for Nendoroid Snow Miku: 2014 version, there are bigger news there: a couple of Vocaloid Nendoroids as part of Happy Kuji Summer 2013 version campaign by GSC and FamilyMart. Wow!
GSC has setup a campaign to promote their newly announced Nendoroid Petite: Hatsune Miku Selection a few days ago, that says:
We are currently running a special Twitter campaign as a part of the recent announcement for Nendoroid Petite: Hatsune Miku Selection. If we manage to reach 3939 tweets that include the #nenpuchi_mikusele hashtag, a special set of Twitter skins including a background, icon and header image will be released for everyone to enjoy!
… and yesterday, it has reached more than 2000 tweets, so GSC has decided to release 3 out of 6 Twitter themes (or skins, as they called it) to be used to decorate your Twitter profile page.
Well, what are you waiting for? Head directly to the source page to download the cute Twitter themes.
P.S: We chose the Aku no Musume (Daughter of Evil) theme for our Twitter profile. XD
Yes, we have seen Nendoroid Petite: Hatsune Miku Selection previously at the most recent Winter WonFes and now they are getting a proper preview by Mikatan.
This Petite set consists of:
- Six main characters, i.e MEIKO, KAITO, Hatsune Miku, Kagamine Rin, Kagamine Len, and Megurine Luka – all in their respective default costumes
- Three fan-made characters, i.e Kagamine Len: Servant of Evil, Kagamine Rin: Daughter of Evil, and Megurine Luka: Akahitoha
- Hatsune Miku: Deep Sea Girl
- Two other characters have not been revealed yet.
Here is how the Deep Sea Girl Miku looks like in her Petite version:
Mikatan said that she will reveal the remaining characters every Friday though. XD
Anyway, the Petite set will come as either 500 Yen for each Petite, or a box of 12 Petites, priced at around 6000 Yen.

The Append version of Nendoroid Kagamine twins have been previewed by Mikatan yesterday, and they are available for pre-order starting today!
Here is the description for Nendoroid Kagamine Rin: Append version.
The warm, powerful and relaxing voice of Kagamine Rin: Append!
The slightly more mature looking ‘Append’ version of Kagamine Rin is joining the Nendoroids! She comes with three different expressions including a cheerful smiling face, a winking face to display her happily singing along to some songs and even a pleading expression allowing you to pose her trying to get something from Len!
She also comes with a background panel and special display arm allowing you pose her back-to-back with Nendoroid Kagamine Len: Append, to ensure you can display the twins close together!
… and here is the description for Nendoroid Kagamine Len: Append version.
The soft, serious and powerful soul singer, Kagamine Len: Append!
The slightly more modern looking ‘Append’ version of Kagamine Len is joining the Nendoroids! He comes with three different expressions including a cheerful smiling face, a winking face to display him happily singing along to some songs and even a serious expression to show off his cooler side!
He also comes with a background panel and special display arm allowing you to pose him back-to-back with Nendoroid Kagamine Rin: Append, to ensure you can display the twins close together!
Both of them are sold separately for 3500 Yen and scheduled for June 2013 release.
You can also pre-order them at Good Smile Online Shop, with the orders can be placed between January 8th (12:00 JST) until February 6th (21:00 JST).
Nendoroid Kagamine Rin: Append version and Nendoroid Kagamine Len: Append version are the first Nendoroid previewed by Mikatan on 2013. The Append version of these Kagamine twins have been teased since a few weeks ago, when they were still no more than uncolored prototypes.
Append Rin and Len will come with three faceplates: both of them have the smiling and winking expressions and one unique face for each. Rin will get the begging expression while Len will have the confident expression.
A special arm, stand, and a Append-themed background board will also be included for us to display them together. See them in action on Mikatan’s blog!
… oh, and both of them will be up for preorder from January 8th!
