I seem to have found something resembling a master figure at the boss’ desk…!

Ah! I’ve been searching everywhere for this one! I went through both the manufacturing and production teams in search of her… and now I find her with the design team! I feel kind of bad stealing it from the boss’ desk though… but there comes a time that the underdog must stand up to her superiors! :P


The third part of the Cheerful JAPAN! Project:

figma Miku Hatsune: Support ver.

To support the relief efforts up North for a long time to come, Good Smile Company have created the ‘Cheerful JAPAN!’ project, which will be announcing a new charity product every month on the 11th for a year.

– Cheerful JAPAN! –

Know that by buying a figure you will also be helping out all those in the disaster stricken areas of Japan!


This is how she looks from the back!

The design is of course based on the original figma Miku which was released in 2008, but the silver on her clothes is slightly brighter than the original version! I really can’t believe it’s been three years since the original was released!


She also comes with a nice set of optional parts!

First up is her singing face and mike!

As the world’s most renown digital diva, she just has to have these parts included – not to mention they suit her perfectly! Obviously a separate hand to hold the mike is also included!

She also comes with a mike stand!

Plus you can even pose her holding the mike stand up like this! The mike on the stand can of course be removed – it’s really a detailed little extra!


It’s not Miku if there is no leek!

I remember when the original figma was released the whole of GSC was amazed at the quality of this leek… and even now I’m still impressed! She is only holding one in the image above, but there are in fact two included with the figma!

That covers everything that the original Miku figma had, but now we move into the new parts added for the Support ver.!

A smiling support face and a support flag!

An all new expression for figma Miku! Plus a vibrant orange flag  with the Cheerful JAPAN! logo for her to show her support! Those red cheeks are so adorable! Miku is such an angel!!

And finally – pompons!

Just like with the Nendoroid version of Miku, the pompons are fitted with ball joints so they can be posed at all sorts of different angles!
