The September issue of Hobby Japan magazine revealed on Monday that an action figure will be made of the Hatsune Miku redesign of the twin-pony-tailed robot Fei-Yen from Sega's Virtua On game. The collaboration began when Hajime Katoki, Virtua On's original mechanical designer, drew a variant of Fei-Yen in the style of Crypton Future Media's virtual idol for the February issue of Kadokawa Shoten's Newtype magazine.
Sega then went the opposite direction and created a design of Hatsune Miku in the style of Fei-Yen. The Fei-Yen costume version of Hatsune Miku appeared in the music video for "melody…," a song by the musician "Mikuru396." This song will be in November 10's Hatsune Miku -Project Diva- extend rhythm game for the PSP system.
Another Katoki re-imagining of a popular female character, a mecha exoskeleton for Haruhi Suzumiya, was made into a Composite Ver. Ka figure earlier this year.
