Hatsune Miku 【Magical Mirai 2016】 Nendroid Review

Well hello!

It feels like it’s been ages. So many things have happened lately…( ꒪Д꒪)ノ My little sister got married, I ran another 5k, and I’m in the middle of my summer semester at school. It’s been hard finding time to actually relax and work on videos and posts. BUT TA-DA; I MADE IT HAPPEN TODAY.

Nendroid Title

Last week, I received a long awaited package in the mail from Good Smile Company. After being delayed around three times, the Magical Mirai 2016 Nendroid has made it home!

Unboxing this cute patootie was filled with so much anticipation and indescribable weeb noises that I just could not contain myself.  First off, the hair looks flawless and was painted beautifully. I love the modest gradient they achieved because it gives the hair more depth in my opinion. (*’∀’人)♥

Now, ya’ll know that as much as I love my figures regardless, I am always looking at those T I N Y details because that’s how you know they were made with love. And by God, this Miku was made with a lot of love. Out of the nendroids I have seen and owned, this has some of the prettiest details. The tiny “01” on the gloves and the diamonds on the socks are what really stood out to me. Not to mention ruffles and the ribbons underneath the skirt. Those finer details are well worth the wait because it shows that GSC cares about their product. It makes my heart swell, I tell you what.

Overall, as I said before, this nendroid was worth the delays and worth the money.  I paid about $42 (¥4200) which isn’t awful at all and if you ever get the chance to buy one, DO IT. You will weeb so hard, I guarantee or your money back. Anyways, if you would like to see/hear my weeb and unbox this precious figure, go ahead and watch the video down below!

Anyways that is it for today! I hope you enjoyed today’s post and video; if you have any comments or questions in regards to nendroids or this specific nendroid in general, feel free to leave a comment down below! With that said, have a wonderful week ahead of you and I will see you all next time!

Good Smile Racing & Team UKYO Racing Miku 2016 SQ Figure Unboxing

DID I STUTTER?

For real though, here’s that second post this week like I promised. ╭(♡・ㅂ・)و ̑̑

miku-figure-title

Let me tell you about how I found this figure!!!! Anthony told me about a local comic book store that also carried manga and figures near the IKEA I go to. There just so happened to be a day where I had to go to IKEA and we decided to kill some time at the comic book store he mentioned. LOAD AND BEHOLD MY GOOD READERS; the precious figure was just sitting on a shelf…staring at me in all of it’s glory. And needless to say…I bought it.

Shall we begin with the box? The box art is so ridiculously lovely and for some reason the partial color gives it (and me) a lot more life. ˚✧₊⁎( ˘ω˘ )⁎⁺˳✧༚ The side art features the same artwork as the front but full scale. The other side features the name of the item. On the side; lots of tape, bubble and plastic wrap, and cardboard. This figure it so snug and protected, I love it.

Every necessary part of the figure was wrapped in it’s own little plastic and a pain to open. However, assembling the figure was actually quite easy and not to strenuous. The only difficult part I recall was inserting the hand, but that only took like a minute I believe.

Let me be honest; this figure it gorgeous. With any Hatsune Miku figures, my main focus of detail is on the hair and oh my gosh it’s there. It does appear that because the hair has a few individual strands; they may break though the figure itself is plastic. The dress is painted wonderfully and the sponsors on the back are perfect with little to no error. The only issue I have with this figure is the feet; it looks as though the paint will cheap easier which kind of makes me a little “meh,” but not enough to regret purchasing her.

Overall; this figure was a good buy for only $35 though I could’ve purchased it cheaper elsewhere having done my research. She’s made a lovely edition to my figure collection and overall Vocaloid collection. If you are interested in purchasing; I found her for $20 on Amazon! Here is the link! Anyways, that wraps it up for this post. I hope you guys enjoyed and I shall see you next time~! (°◡°♡).:。

Love Live! Nishikino Maki “Sunny Day Song” SPM Figure Unboxing

Hello~!

I accidentally took too long in posting again…crap. (╬ ꒪Д꒪)ノ I’m sorry guys; I let time get the best of me again. But I’ll have two posts this week so there’s a plus! Anyways, I couple weeks ago I was able to get my hands on a wonderfully adorable figure of my Love Live! bias and I took pictures of me opening it. TA-DA.

love-live-figure-title

Ah, yes. My main bae; Nishikino Maki. The store I go to for many things Korean and Japanese started carrying LEGIT (I emphasize this because some of the stores in California carried awful fakes…) figures and goods and when I saw her, I just couldn’t walk away without her. The weeb in me was let out in full force as I rushed to the check out counter. (⁎⁍̴̀﹃ ⁍̴́⁎)♡ It was a beautiful moment.

love-live-figure-box

Let’s begin with the box and what not. The box art itself is quite cute although not entirely my aesthetic to be honest. The front of the box features the figure with Maki posed and in position. The side art features of profile view of Maki from the anime. The back of the box had information that wasn’t exactly necessary for pictures. The inside of the box had Maki nicely wrapped in bubble wrap and cardboard.

love-live-figure-assemble

This what she looked like after being removed from said box. If I remember correctly; assembling her took a little bit of work because although it’s literally two pieces…the holes where you insert the tags in her feet weren’t cooperating and I couldn’t get both in at the same time. HOWEVER. I somehow managed to do it and I can’t even remember how. (๑•̀ㅂ•́)و✧

love-live-figure

After assembling her; I was awestruck at the amount of details. The pleats and folds are what got me the most. She’s a sturdy figure for sure which is good especially if you’re clumsy like myself. (๑•́‧̫•̀๑) I think the item I love most about her is the transparent fabric over her skirt which they did so beautifully.  It really made me love the figure just a tad more.

Overall; it was definitely worth the amount of money I spent which I recall was about $35 but I could be mistaken. If you’d like to purchase the doll, I found it on Amazon for $27! Here is the link! This is a great item for anyone who loves Love Live! or just Nishikino Maki. Definitely a good purchase. Anyways, I hope you guys enjoyed this post! Like I said; another post is on the way this week so please be on the look out. Also, I have a trip to Charleston coming up again so if you’d like to see a blog post or a vlog, please let me know in the comments down below. With that said I hope you have a wonderful rest of your week! I’ll see you next time~!!!
