Happy belated birthday, Miku!

We all love you, Miku!
Plus I’m sure we’ll continue to love you for quite some time to come!!

It’s very fitting that this figure would be announced so close to her birthday!
Miku Hatsune: Love is War ver. DX!

From the popular song composed by ryo and produced by supercell with illustrations by Shirou Miwa, ‘Love is War,’  is this lovely  1/8th scale figure of Miku Hatsune! Her long flowing hair is blowing up behind her, her skirt is also flying up in the wind as she holds a megaphone in her one hand and leans over the edge of a railing, shouting out about her love! It’s a beautiful and dynamic pose that recreates Shirou Miwa’s original illustration perfectly!

  |:::::::::::(__人__):::|    I have no space for that!”
   \::::::   |r┬-|   /

I… suppose that might be the case. :P

But never fear, Good Smile thought of this before hand! Those of you who missed the earlier article explains it all in detail – you can find that article here: Miku Hatsune: Love is War ver. DX

If you’re too lazy to go read that article, here is a quick summary:

There is a big base version and a small base version!

The left is the deluxe (DX) version, while the one on the right is the standard version. Obviously Miku is included with both stands, with the deluxe version going for 14000JPY and the standard version going for 8800JPY. The article above focuses on the DX version, and this article will focus on the standard version!


Miku Hatsune: Love is War ver.

This here is the standard version!

A quick look will tell you the base is definitely a lot simpler and smaller – but it still keeps the same taste as the original illustration! In fact… the base on the standard version is pretty big itself, just compared to the deluxe version it looks quite small :P The Miku in both versions is identical.


Here you can see the standard base!

There are no longer speakers all over the place, and the area to stand on is more of 1/6th of a circle compared to the half on the deluxe version. But even though it is smaller, it’s just as detailed!

Don’t worry!

The floor part and steel tower can both be removed!

Obviously it’ll lose a bit of it’s charm without them, but you have to do what you have to do to fit her in, right? :P


A close-up on the steel pole!

It’s amazing how heavy it looks… even though it’s just PVC… what a great paint job! Just as wonderful a job as on the DX version!


Miku-san from the front!

I seem to focus on the base so much some people might almost forget about the main part of the figure! :P Here is Miku posed on the base in her dynamic pose with her long twin-tails flying out behind her. It also has the same wonderful contrast! Definitely one of my best Miku figures ever!


The beautiful Miku!

That’s the same photo as on the DX version post! :P Obviously just on the alternate base! Happy Birthday Miku!


A grated floor and rusted look!

This is one part I’ve really come to like!! It really builds a nice atmosphere for the figure. It’s the little things like this that make fans like me super happy!
