Da-dum… Da-dum…


She’s here━━(゚∀゚)━━!!!!

It’s been three months since we first saw this Nendoroid on display at WonFes, and the prototype has finally been completed for me to review on the blog!!
From Character Vocal Series 01: Hatsune Miku:
Nendoroid Miku Dayo!

From ‘Character Vocal Series 01: Hatsune Miku’ comes a Nendoroid of the conspicuous character based on Hatsune Miku, Miku Dayo! Her flappy twin-tails that became ever-popular at events have been faithfully recreated in Nendoroid size, and even move about in the same way as the original costume!

I’m sure there are a couple of you that are wondering who the heck this is… let me create a quick summary of how she was created!

(1) Sega made the ‘Project mirai’ game, featuring Nendoroid Vocaloids!
(2) A life-size Nendoroid Miku costume was made to promote the game!
(3) Everyone felt the costume didn’t quite feel like the real Miku!
(4) The costume Miku became her own character, Miku Dayo!
(5) Miku Dayo is made into a Nendoroid, completing the cycle!

That about sums it up! Those of you who are hearing about this for the first time may find it quite hard to believe, but this strange version of Miku has become loved just after appearing at a few events!
This is how she looks from the back!

Those of you who have seen the actual costume that created Miku Dayo will know just how amazing of a rendition this is!

The way her neck is all sunken down and covered by her head, the flappy twin-tails, the really long boots and the wrinkles on her back are all special characteristics that had to be reproduced on the Nendoroid! :P
She looks so exited!

Both the costume and the Nendoroid can move in all sorts of ways, including her flappy twin-tails! I tried to create a running pose for this photo! (`・ω・´)
“Dayo-san chatting with someone!”

She comes with ball joints in her shoulders for a wider variety of arm poses compared to normal Nendoroids!

Thanks to that, you can pose her with her arms almost completely horizontal like this, or have them straight in front of her like the photo before this one! It’s kind of like just her arms were given the fully-posable ‘edition’ series treatment.

The reasoning behind it was of course to allow you to pose the Nendoroid in the same poses that the original costume takes!
She also comes with optional parts!

But, they’re still a secret!! (((゚Д゚)))

Phew, that was a close one, I nearly gave it away… Dayo-san would have been so angry with me!! The optional parts will be announced shortly!

Miku Dayo together with Nendoroid Miku!

It’s almost like a forbidden image to have both of them in the same photo… but it gives you a good feel for the differences. ^^;

I think Miku Dayo will have a load of fun playing with other Nendoroids and figures… I also hope that the colorful background will be included as the cardboard mat in the back of the packaging!
