I received a call from the local post office this afternoon, and they said that a package from HongKong had arrived. They asked me to complete the custom duties and import taxes there before taking the package. I went there to take care of the administration …. and here it is:

Apparently, the saga is not over yet, as we have received report regarding the delay for international shipping of Nendoroid Hatsune Miku: Support version. The international version of Miku Support was originally released early last month, and with EMS delivery, the package should have arrived on late July at the latest. Unfortunately, it didn’t happen as expected.

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. ^^

Nendoroid Hatsune Miku: Support version will be Sold at LA ANIME EXPO

Well, you read the title – Nendoroid Hatsune Miku: Support version will be put on sale at Mikunopolis 2011 booth at the Los Angeles ANIME EXPO. Although the official pricing has not been revealed yet, they did mention that for every sale of the figure, 1000 Yen will be donated to Japanese Red Cross to aid the relief efforts in Eastern Japan.

In a side note, I thought GSC mentioned that charity products will be a made-to-order basis, but now we are seeing Miku to be sold out of the web pre-orders. Inconsistency? Well, in any case, I hope GSC will expand the charity product sales outside their own web pre-order. ^^

Well, what do you think, Nendonesian?

(Thanks for the news tip, Otaku00! ^^)
