Nendoroid Hachune Miku is Delayed to January 2013 Due to Some Defects

Nendoroid Hatsune Miku: Hachune Face version

Why does this news seems like déjà vu, hmm? XD

In any case, it seems that a factory defect has been discovered during the inspection of Nendoroid Hatsune Miku: Hachune Face version prior to its shipment. This Nendoroid, which was available through web pre-order of Summer Wonder Festival 2012 is initially scheduled for December 25th, but it seems that Mr.Santa GSC has decided to delay your Chrismast present the Nendoroid release to January 21st next year.

It appears that the defective parts are the twintails and their joints – although there are no specific details about what the defects really are. In any case, here are the apology email sent by GSC earlier today:

Thank you very much for your support of Good Smile Company products.

A factory defect has been discovered in the “WONDERFUL HOBBY LIFE FOR YOU!! 16” web shop preorder item “Nendoroid Hatsune Miku: Hachune Face Ver.” which was announced to begin shipping on Tue, Dec. 25. As such, shipment for this item has been delayed to Mon, Jan. 21, 2013. As there is possibility that some of the products within this shipment may have defective parts, all items will be shipped together with the replacement parts “Left & Right Twin Tail Parts” as well as “Twin Tail Joints x 2”.

We’d like to express our most sincere apologies, to all of our customers who were looking forward to the release of this item.

Yep, the replacement parts for the defective parts will be shipped along with the Nendoroid. You can also cancel your order and GSC will refund you fully, if you want.

Well, I hope this problem will not be repeated when they start taking pre-orders for Nendoroid Snow Miku 2013. XD

(Thanks for the tip, @NintendoTweet)
