Here is my Miku from Good Smile Company! I just love how she looks in front of this background! SO CUTE! I have been looking forward to this figure for a long time. It gives me the shivers that there was a mixup with my pre-order and I almost missed out on her! She is a nice unique addition to my collection, she really stands out as being different from the rest of my collection. Currently I have no plans to get any other Miku figures, I know GSC has some tempting versions of her coming down the pipeline but I almost gagged when I saw the price of Black Rock Shooter. I know BRS is technically not Miku, but she was originally a darker variant of Miku and then the creator decided to just make her an original character, but I still see her as “Dark Miku”.
I DO however plan on getting any Vocaloid figures that relate to this Miku coming out from GSC. I think they’ll all look brilliant and colorful on a little stage on my shelf! I have Rin and Len already on pre-order! I’m not collecting the Vocaloid nendoroids though, just these figures, GSC already gets far too much of my pay checks as it is. Miku was a pretty good deal, her box was ripped so I got $8 off so I paid $39.50 for her. Although I would have preferred to have paid full price for a pristine box she was the last one so I’ll deal.
This is Ryuna by Eye Scream/Beagle/President Japan? I have no idea which I’ve seen this exact figure listed as all 3 and I give up. The rest of the Shining figures from this series are released under the manufacturer title of President Japan so I’ll go with that. I got her for $30 off eBay, her retail price is ridiculously higher then that though. I’d definitely say she is worth $30…but not anything over $50 for sure. I got her to go with my Mao and Blanc. I really like Ryuna’s character design, it’s very very cute.
