Hobby Stock’s Mikumo line has been delivering cute, cheap renditions of overlooked Vocaloid songs, and it’s been moving along at a decent pace: first we got Love Colored Hospital and Marukunaru, then -lol- Lots Of Laughs, and most recently the beautiful Romeo & Cinderella version. That left us with two announced but not finished: #05 Traveling Mood and #06 Yume Miru Kotori.
The packaging of the totally adorable Marukunaru figure shows that these last two are completed, and they look great! While the style of Traveling Mood isn’t exactly to my taste, I adore the Yume Miru Kotori figure and the detail on both looks great considering their size and price. I’ve seen people complain about the price, but that seems silly to me: these figures are each about half the size of a 1/8 scale figure and clearly half the price, but you are getting a lot more than half the quality. Really, they’re a bargain!
These two should go up for order soon, though if they will go up together like the first sets or separately like 03 and 04 we don’t know yet. I know I will be ordering both: this is a set I’d really like to finish, and I am hoping that they announce some more additions to the line soon.
