Miku Haul - February/March 2021Miku Haul - February/March 2021Loot

izouizou3 months ago
Hello! I've been on this site for a long while now, but I've only just decided to do my very first loot article. The focus today, will of course, be on Miku!!

I've been eyeing her figures for a very long time, ever since I seriously got into figure collecting around 7 years ago. I was never sure about whether it'd be okay for me to buy them since I'm not really into Vocaloid music and have only listened to the popular songs like Senbonzakura. However, around 2 years ago I caved in and bought ITEM #73637 and ITEM #104300 together. They way they match is so cute I couldn't resist. I had an issue where the peg in Snow Miku's left twintail got stuck in the hole so I basically had to blu-tack it on (well done me). Thankfully you can't notice it in the angle I display her, so other than that slip-up I was really happy with them both!

Actually moving on to my new figures now. First off is ITEM #860904. Just when I thought I wouldn't be collecting any more Mikus and the last two nendos I bought were an exception, I noticed Taito had started to release some really lovely, yet affordable, figures of her. So I couldn't help but look through them all, and one that especially caught my eye was the pink/pastel variant of the sailor figure. I just found the colours more pleasing than the original ITEM #537793 and renewal ITEM #825114 vers. So when I found her pre-owned on AmiAmi, I decided that I would finally snag her, and I have no regrets!! She's even nicer than I expected her to be in person, my poor photos definitely don't do her justice.

Next up is ITEM #998277. Seeing her in pictures I thought she looked really adorable and cozy, I love her fluffy pink pjs!! Luckily I still found her in-stock on DekaiAnime. I had a bit of trouble getting her twintails in, but it wasn't a massive deal. Again, another Miku purchase I'm happy with.

Now onto my next two purchases that I snagged off Mandarake, ITEM #107714 and ITEM #153162 !! I've always been a fan of the Snow Miku nendos, and the 2013 + 2014 ones are definitely my favourites!

2013 took me forever to set up, I almost wanted to cry assembling her because her hands and arms kept falling off, but I succeeded in the end. Being delicate aside, she's a very lovely figure! I understand why she's the most popular nendo on this site.

Thankfully, the 2014 nendo wasn't as much trouble to set up, other than the tip of her hat falling off easily. I love the little details on her outfit, and her box is super cool and creative as well. If I had more space I would definitely display her on the book stand.

While working on this article, I also ended up pre-ordering the Myethos figure ITEM #998271. It was my first time using a Chinese proxy so I'm paranoid I messed up somewhere, even if it looks like I haven't so far, but I'm very excited to see her in person!

And that's it from me! I wish I took more photos, but alas the lighting in my room isn't very good.

Thank you!! And I definitely agree, I especially love how they go all-out with the snow nendos every year. It's hard resisting the urge to collect nearly all of them haha.
