HATSUNE MIKU TAITO UNIFORM VOL. 2 FIGURE REVIEW

And the last in my most recent haul, the very-cartoony Hatsune Miku Taito Uniform Vol.2 Figure from, you guessed it, Taito!

Larger images here!

Another figure I really wanted because of her face! It's really cartoony and I love that style. Also, you might notice lots of glue spots on her in the pics, and this is fully my fault. The figure did not come like that.


Note: I don't have the box again, so skipping that section.

THE SETUP

This figure comes in four pieces. The clear base, the figure, and two twintails. The thing in her hand is not meant to be removed I'm pretty sure, so don't try or you might break it.

Speaking of breaking things...

One of the twintails had a pretty gnarly break. Now, I'm gentle with my figures. And I believe that easily breakable twintails or pieces are mostly on the part of the manufacturer, and I've definitely had twintail issues with Taito figures. Something to note here is that instead of the twintails having pegs to go into her head, her head has these very long, thin pegs coming out that you're supposed to put the twintails into. So obviously the peg broke off inside the twintail while I was trying to plug it in!

I fixed it using a thumbtack pin to hold the twintail into her head since glue wasn't strong enough. So please don't mind any glue you see on her because I am not a craftsman.

Anyway! She fits good into the base and isn't very wobbly.

Twintail peg design is so bad that I have to remove three whole stars. Don't try to push the twintails all the way to the head or you'll probably break it like I did.

THE FACE

Miku has a very large open-mouth smile with her teeth and tongue showing. She has large turquoise eyes and a prominent nose. She's looking to the left and has some blush under her eyes.

Super super cute face!! Cartoony eyes are absolutely the cutest ever, and her giant mouth makes this even better. I do wish that her nose was a little smaller, since it looks kinda funny on her face. Either way it's a super cute face with very nice colors!

THE HAIR

Miku has her hair in twintails as usual, with her classic square things.

It's a really classic Miku hairstyle, with not much personality. It's much thinner than usual and very ribbon-y, with a few strands and some sculpt. They're very long and reach her mid-shins.

I really love all the energy and movement in her hair! It's so curvy and pleasant to look at, it really adds to the shape language of the figure. Although, I'm still angry that her twintail broke off...

THE CLOTHES

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/09/10/thumbnails/2847094.jpeg

Miku is wearing a Taito uniform of course! It consists of a jean button top with red accents, a jean skirt, and black pants rolled up a bit. She's also wearing black and red basketball(?) shoes. She has tons of space invader logos plastered everywhere on her uniform, and she's wearing a pair of headphones with a very large wire.

There's tons of detail here! It really looks like denim, with the stitches and gold buttons. The folds look great and it's a pretty cute outfit. I doubt this is the kind of thing Taito employees actually wear, but it's pretty well designed. I like the shoes too—It gives her a bit of tomboy-ish charm.

THE BASE

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/09/10/thumbnails/2847097.jpeg

The base for this figure is a large clear circle shape. The base is thin and has a little raised part for her foot.

I have to say, Taito really just threw this to the side. It's literally nothing—They could've done a black base with more space invader characters on it, which would've looked much better! Taito isn't really known for their bases I suppose. At least it's not ugly.

THE POSE

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/09/10/thumbnails/2847096.jpeg

Miku is standing on one foot, with her other leg bent. One arm is holding a large space invader icon (plush, maybe? inflatable?) and the other is straight out to her side.

I really love the pink space invader thing! It's big and round and super cute, and as a fan of video games I really appreciate this. This is a really energetic and fun pose—You really get the vibe that she's happy to be working and really loves her job.

The sculpt is really nice as well. Her hands look great and she's got shorter, rounder proportions to really push that cute look.

Five stars!

CONCLUSION

A very nice and cute figure over all. Of course, my main problem is the awful pegs in her hair, so consider this a cautionary tale if you're planning on buying this figure. Aside from that, she's got great sculpt all over, lots of great detail on her clothes, a cute design, everything looks great. I'd consider this a must-buy despite the flaws!

chibianna12 days ago#101039567i feel like everyone who has owned this figure has had a problem of something snapping sadly.. for me it wasn't the peg but one of the square hairtie things... they're ridiculously fragile, thankfully it's not very noticeable unless you look reaaaalllyy close unfortunately the figure is badly designed i guess! which is such a shame since it's such a cute figure :(
