Wow $40? I didn't know Nendoroids cost that much. I mean, I think I have the 'petit' version of the nendoroid, but that was still only like, 10 dollars.
I guess that 40 is what makes all the detail happen.

It's nice that her pigtails can help her stand up without the base. I've had trouble with that kinda stuff before... I usually just find a way to prop them up against a wall or something.

Aw...but she's a cute little booger, though. Smile

It's LEN! Len Kagamine! I hate to be nit-picky about it, LOL. But Rin and Len are named for Right and Left.

The bits used in the video are just nonsense, but the song is Finnish. (Ievan Polkka)

You know, I actually made my own L and Miku figures because I couldn't buy the real ones http://img17.imageshack.us/​gal.​php?​g=​mikuclayfigure.​jpg I made L then Light then Miku. So of course when I made the L I had to make a Light to go along with it, then later on I wanted a Miku figure, so I made one of those too. Oh sure they're far from perfect, but I was pretty satisfied with them Anime smile

Oh, and if you're wondering whats up with Ls neck? All I used to keep the heads on L and Light were toothpicks so the heads kinda fell of, I used MIGHTY PUTTY to stick'em back on Anime hyper

You liked her, but was she worth $40?

Nice that there's a good review this week. I have the Len Kagamine Nendoroid figurine and mine was about $30 but it is still worth it; that you can change his faces and his hair pieces move too. Though, his arms come off a bit more easily than any other part but I let that slide. Miku's stand is very nice too and her hair as a stand is just too cute ^ _ ^ I hope the next toy has a good review~!

Just saying; the extra bangs are to create the look of the character 'Hachune Miku'. 'Hachune' Miku is the character that looks like Miku with that retarded face, who hits the leek around. (although 'regular' Miku loves leeks as well) 'Hachune' is alot simpler than Hatsune in apperance, thus they created an extra set of bangs that look simpler than the 'normal' bangs so that you could recreat Hachune's simple appearance. It's an odd inclusion (considering that the rest of her body isnt that simple even in nendoroid form), but fun none the less.

Also I just have to nitpick; at the end of the review you spoke of figures for other Vocaloids included Megurine Luka. So far, there is -no- figures for Luka, with the exception of a puchi Nendoroid that was only announced recently and isnt even available for preorder yet.

I seriously need to get a .pdo viewer asap so I can make one of the Hatsune Miku papercrafts.

I like her blue-greenish color scheme and that she has no pink on her. And that song about the vegetable juice, they're ear worms, the lot of them!

Glad he finally got a toy he likes and that showed that some companies are improving upon their previous character designs.

This also means that Miku's panties — and of course they're on there, it's a Japanese toy, for goodness sake — look like a diaper. The certainly that certain perverts are unable to get their jollies to this figure is an extra bonus.


Yah, that will certainly be a sticking point for some perverts, but for others, it might just make it even better... Shocked Ok, I'm freaking even myself out, moving along...

Nice review, I love the final pic with Miku and L. Very Happy

Ok, the review was positive, but 40 nucks for that thing... I don't know, but looks like way too much.
