So you have been waiting for the re-sale of Nendoroid Kagamine Rin and/or Len? Well, how about a Cheerful version of those Vocaloid twins, coming with additional parts and accessories? Yep, it is a rare treat!! ^^

Yep, that is what Mikatan posted today – Nendoroid Kagamine Rin: Cheerful version and Nendoroid Kagamine Len: Cheerful version are slated for December 2011 release (for Japanese) or January 2012 (for International order) with a price tag of 3000 Yen. They are coming along with new parts and accessories, including flags, whistle, megaphone, and pompom.

Apart from the Cheerful Japan extras, there are other differences as well: this version of Rin and Len will use a plug-in stand a la Nendoroid Hatsune Miku: Support version … and there will be a slight tweak on both Rin and Len’s head to allow them to use expressions from other Nendoroid, unlike the old one. ^^

Anyway visit Mikatan’s blog to view more pics of this adorable Vocaloid duo, and prepare to secure the pre-order on August 11 ~ 29. ^^

OK, now that you know who Rin is, let’s get directly to the review after the break. ^^
