Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)
I look forward to going out and looking at the cherry blossoms this Spring! I want to do it properly – lay down a vinyl sheet under the blossoms, sit and and relax in a storm of petals while enjoying some delicious dango!
On that note, today I’m going to be introducing a figure just as beautiful as the falling cherry blossoms… ♡
The 1/10 Scale:
Sakura Miku feat. KEI!
|The second issue of FIGURE Japan will be focusing on the popular electronic diva – Character Vocal Series 01: Hatsune Miku! The included figure is a 1/10th scale ‘Sakura Miku feat KEI’ – a classic figure based on an illustration by KEI, colored a beautiful cherry blossom pink! The cover of the magazine will also feature an illustration by KEI!|
Oooh! Spring has sprung! （*´▽｀*）
Sakura Miku previously became a Nendoroid, but now she’ll also be released as a scale figure too!
Spring has already come to my desk! ♪
A lovely gentle smile on her face! ♡
As with the Nendoroid, she features lovely cherry blossom prints along her beautiful long hair!
The cherry hair accessories are also adorable!! (*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ
Her outfit is also amazingly detailed, down to the creases in her dress!
It also has a pearl coating that gives a nice relaxed feeling… isn’t it lovely…?
Her base is also shaped like a cherry blossom flower! ♪
This figure is included with volume two of Hobby Japan’s magazine, Figure JAPAN!!
|What is Figure JAPAN?
Figure Japan is a figure collector’s magazine with each issue focusing on a specific series and including a figure from that series. Each issue will have a figure catalog and a listing of new and upcoming products from the series it is based on, focusing on the figure included with that issue. It’s filled with lovely photos and all sorts of figure-related information, creating the perfect fan book for figure fans!

As I’m sure most of you will remember, the first issue of the magazine included this 1/10th scale figure of Ultimate Madoka!
Whilst the contents of the magazine certain do interest me, I don’t have access to them right now… so instead I’ll be taking a close up look at the included figure!
I also think we need to get some inside info… so let’s see who we can summon!
*Planning Team Summon: Hamako!!*
(・∀・) “There is no way I can completely explain the cuteness of this Sakura Miku… but I definitely think the pearl coating is what makes her so very special!”
(・∀・) “The pearl coating causes all the details on her outfit to stand out even more than before!”
It also seems to have a more dynamic feeling to the standard colors! ε=(｡・д・｡)
(・∀・) “Nendoroid Sakura Miku also made use of a pearl coat so I really wanted to make use of it on the scale figure too… I’m personally quite glad with that decision! It gives her an overall more dynamic and glamorous appearance – and a presence you’d never expect from a 1/10th scale figure!”
The original 1/8th scale Hatsune Miku had a metallic shine to her design, but the pearl effect is definitely a completely different charm! It’s more shiny and definitely suits Sakura Miku nicely.★
(・∀・) “Miku normally has an energetic, smiling appearance, but Sakura Miku is more of a gentle, kind look… which we wanted to portray through her expression too! After discussing things with the production team we ended up with this – it’s actually rather different when compared to the 1/8th scale Miku’s expression!”
Ah-hah! I knew she seemed different in some way or another! The expression definitely does look a little gentler!
(・∀・) “We also replaced areas that are normally black with a more brown color, and altered the eyebrows to create a more gentle appearance overall!
Not only a lovely cherry blossom color scheme, but a bit of a personality adjustment too! ♡
(・∀・) “It’s definitely not a figure that will lose to her bigger version in any way… except size! The detail is exquisite and anyone who picks her up is sure to be more than satisfied!”
Bring Spring right into your figure collection! ♡
