Yesterday we shared the news about two massive EVANGELION statues coming to the market from F:NEX. Today they came with another massive announcement: the Hatsune Miku 2021 Chinese New Year Version 1/7 Scale Figure.
The figure, for which pre-orders kicked off today, is being produced in collaboration with POPPRO, a Chinese website that exclusively posts Vocaloid-related content. It is also widely known as a stage for Chinese fans and creators to create new contents such as illustrations, music, and novels, just like the Japanese site ‘piapro’ where creators can exchange information relating to Vocaloid with each other.
The 1/7 scale figure of Miku Hatsune in a Chinese dress is based on the key visual of ‘Future Hatsune 2021 Spring Festival Edition’, drawn by RenChain, an illustrator active on ‘POPPRO’. The beautiful flowing hair with gradation paint, the voluminous frilly skirt, and the lantern she holds in her left hand are all carefully sculpted. She also comes with a cute expression on her face, showing off her adorable smile as she dances happily. She also comes with a special background acrylic board featuring a beautiful cityscape and fireworks as a bonus. It really is a special item that allows you to enjoy the atmosphere of the Chinese New Year.
The Hatsune Miku 2021 Chinese New Year Ver. 1/7 Scale Figure is available for pre-order through the F:NEX website for ¥28,380 (Approx. $270 USD) until 1 June 2021, and is expected to start shipping in February 2022.
If you’re a Hatsune Miku fan or a Vocaloid fan, this is something that you’re definitely going to want to have in your collection. As with all international orders, you’re going to want to reach out to a friend or find a proxy that will handle the purchase on your behalf.
