    Winter WonFest 2018: GSC & Co x Vocaloid

    Would it be a Wonder Festival without at least one Miku-centered post? Maybe in the year 2060, but this is 2018. And it’s still the Year of Miku in perpetuity. This time around we’re actually seeing a little bit less of her (and some other Vocaloids) from GSC & co, but still enough to satisfy fans! We have announcements for a scaled Racing Miku 2018 and a scaled Chinese V4 Miku from Good Smile, along with a new set of Rin & Len figures from Max Factory: the Stylish Energy L Versions.

    FREEing’s Thai Miku 2016 is (finally) painted, and we have two very exciting sculpts, both from GSC: the Chokabuki Kuruwa Kotoba Awase Kagami Miku (which is a bit… chunkier sculpt-wise than what I was expecting?), and the gorgeous Yoshiwara Lament Ver. of Kasane Teto. Last but not least there’s a figma of the Chinese V4X Miku and… a tiny little Racing Miku car!

    [UPDATE] As I predicted, we’re getting yet another version of the Tony Taka Racing Miku!

    Check Out Snow Miku 2018’s figma & Nendoroid

    Sometimes it feels like the years are just crawling by. Like, summer feels like it was so long ago! And yet, I also feel like I’m writing up news about the newest Snow Miku design constantly. So where is the truth?

    I’ve been on board with the 2018 Snow Miku design since the full art reveal, which was just packed with detail and personality. We’re getting the fully painted Nendoroid & figma reveal now, right before winter really hits, and I gotta say she looks adorable! The color balance is way off in the figma shot but the Nendoroid looks so vibrant. Perhaps a little less sculpting detail than what I expected, but definitely solid so far. Can’t wait to see the hood (and, of course, her bunny).

    [UPDATE] We have a picture of the hooded Nendoroid and it’s everything I dreamed it would be.

    I think it came as a big surprise to all of us when Good Smile Company & co snagged the Overwatch license. But they’re really a perfect fit: we get both the cutesy Nendoroids and the articulated, true-to-model figmas. Combine that with Blizzard’s statues and there’s (almost) something for everyone.
