Nendoroid Number 300!!

She’s finally about to be shipped out to everyone!!

Preorders for #300 started on the 17th December last year! Now with five months past, she is ready to make the journey into everyone’s collections! It looks like the staff are rather excited about her as well! Σ(゚∀゚*)

Today I’ll be doing a release review of the prestigious Nendoroid Number 300!!
Nendoroid Hatsune Miku 2.0!

From the ‘Character Vocal Series 01: Hatsune Miku’ comes a special new version of Nendoroid Hatsune Miku!

Miku 2.0 comes with both the winking expression and the excited expression that featured in the opening movie of the ‘Hatsune Miku and Future Stars Project mirai’ game. She also comes with all new optional parts such as a keyboard and a guitar for some brand new poses, and even comes with some alternate parts that allow you to pose her sitting down! It’s the same Miku everyone has come to love with an extra touch!

The new Miku has a completely new sculpt!! ヽ(゚∀゚)ノ

Her head and body have been adjusted to better suit the format of more recent Nendoroids! The paintwork on her outfit has also been adjusted to look more futuristic, and she comes with a bunch of new optional parts!

She really has been upgraded into a brand new ‘2.0’ version!
This is how the packaging looks!

She comes with many big parts including three different expressions, two sets of twin-tails and sitting parts! Plus the classic bent arms and legs are still included, and she even comes with a guitar, keyboard and speakers! There are so many different parts to play with!! (((゜Д゜)))

I don’t think I’ll be able to get through all the different parts with today’s blog, but if you want to see more, be sure to check the prototype review I did back in December!

Nendoroid Hatsune Miku 2.0 Prototype:
Posed playing the guitar!

Wow! She moves around so easily! ヽ(゚∀゚)ノ

This time Miku’s Nendoroid joints are rather special – you can still twist them left and right as always, but now they can also move backward and forward to a certain degree. Another change is the fact that her upper arm (the line between her arm cover and skin) can also be rotated, meaning you can create much more dynamic poses when compared to the original Nendoroid Miku!
You can also pose her sitting down!

Ahhhh!! This is way too cute!!——(゚∀゚)——-!!!!

Using the specially included sitting parts, you can have this adorable Miku sitting beside you whenever you like! This pose is actually completely recreating one of Miku’s poses from the ‘My Room’ section in the ‘Project’ mirai 3DS game!
Two different sets of twin-tails!

Her twin-tails are included in both a straight form and one that curves inward at the ends! The curvy ones were mainly designed for use with the sitting pose, but they also work with standing poses quite nicely!

You could even create even more dynamic looking poses by using one straight and one bent twin-tail – to give a kind of mid-motion effect!
From #300, Nendoroids will use the new face design!

Up until now you have always needed to remove the neck joint and fringe part before removing the expression from the head part, but with the new design it’s a whole lot simpler! You simply pull the fringe off and then you can directly remove and change the expression!

Having tried it myself, I can say it’s a wonderful change! (`・ω・´)b

It’s nice to be able to switch out expressions without ruining your pose! When you’ve worked hard to get a Nendoroid into a nice pose and then decide to change the expression… having to pull the neck joint out just to change the expression often caused the pose to fall apart. Now it’s a much simpler task!
Older expression parts still connect fine!

Here we have the old Miku and the new Miku with swapped expressions! Older expressions simply connect into place!

Left – Expression: Old Miku / Body & Hair: New Miku
Right – Expression: New Miku / Body & Hair: Old Miku

Plus it’s not just with the old Miku Nendoroid – the new design is compatible with other Nendoroid expressions as well! The design team has really outdone themselves to ensure compatibility!!
The twin-tail joints have also been improved!!

The Miku closer to the keyboard is the new Miku, the one closer to the camera is the old Miku! When you tried to turn the older joints up too high, they wouldn’t be able to go past a certain point, but the new joints have a nuch wider range of posability! Yay! (*゚∀゚)=3
The inner cardboard of the box! (((゚∀゚)))

The cardboard inside the box can be removed to create a little diorama for Miku! It’s the room from Sega’s 3DS game ‘Project mirai’! (´∀`*)

Plus it’s not just a flat piece of cardboard, there are special fold lines that allow you to pop out a bed and shelves in the room! It’s wonderful!! Miku herself, all the optional parts and even the box that she comes in all have such wonderful details!! As expected of #300!! (*゚∀゚)人(゚∀゚*)
Nendoroid Number 300:
Nendoroid Hatsune Miku 2.0!

The box also has a nice fresh design to it! ヽ(゚∀゚)ノ

She’ll be in stores from the 28th May!

I hope to see you all again tomorrow!! (・∀・)ノ
