With the Snow Miku display just a week away, we’re starting to see merchandise really pick up.
This time around, we’ve gotten wind of a set of adorable gashapon (capsule toys) that focus on various regional incarnations of the Digital Diva. Specifically, the following forms of Miku are in the set:
- Snow Bell Miku
- Snow Miku
- Fox Miku
- Hokkaido Brown Bear Miku
- Marimo Miku
- Rabbit Yukine
The designs for each 4-centimeter (1.57 inches) figure were created by illustrator Kiriku. They have joints in the neck and twin-tails, which allows for limited poseability. The heads are rigged much like figures in Good Smile’s Nendoroid Petit line, which will allow for some truly interesting combinations!
The only real question left is “where can I get them and how much are they?” At the moment, the figures cost 463 yen ($3.93 US) each, and can be purchased at three locations:
We can foresee these becoming fairly sought after among Vocaloid collectors, given the limited nature and small window of availability. For those who can’t make it, though, Good Smile provided a number of photos, so fans can get a glimpse of the adorable miniatures.
