初音ミク VN02 mix ~ Hatsune Miku
Posted by meronpan on July 3, 2010
Well as you can you see I’ve delayed the BRS review yet again… when VN02 arrived I just couldn’t resist ^^
久しぶりのMax Factoryリリースだな。 Been a while since my last Max Factory review.
With their figma craze I guess it’s not too surprising ^^; (though i really should’ve gotten their recent tama-nee release ^^;)
VN02 is another figure I got without really knowing much about her origins. Miku with a dash of mecha was definitely enough to persuade me though :P
nagimiso is also behind the rin release later this year.
Pretty much love everything about this release… pose, the mecha elements, outfit, color scheme… very striking ^^
I really like miku stuff but it’s usually ‘cuz I’m amazed by the covers that make the rounds on niconico. If you’re not a fan of miku’s voice I recommend giving the covers a try… human voice adds a lot imo ^^
Hard to convey in the pics so far since there’s no reference but she’s actually a lot smaller than I thought.
Of course with her base and mecha attachment thingies and hair she takes up quite a bit of space.
Actually now that I look at it I have no idea what’s going on with that base… some sort of engine thing spewing green flames everywhere? or something? ^^;
Her right leg has some sort of… armor… extension… thing ^^; that sits in the base to help support her… had to bend her a bit to get it to fit though nothing out of the ordinary (though that sort of thing always makes me uneasy ^^;).
Base material reminds me of freeing’s kanu.
Like all the little details on her outfit
Because she’s got so much going on you can appreciate vn02 from a wide variety of viewing angles ^^
Or up close macro style
Though I must say up close (read: reaaaaaaally close) you start to see a lot of minor flaws in the paint and such.
Luckily it’s nothing you’ll ever notice unless you only view your figures with magnifying glasses.
Love her sleeves which fade into transparent material ^^
That combined with the arm length gloves, just great ^^
You can actually notice the imperfect transparency from further away as it weirdly distorts light but again, so much else to appreciate, hard to get hung up on such a small detail.
They should add VN02 to the cast of exelica in a new game :P
Prolly shoulda used a narrower aperature for the above shot… ah well ^^;
I dunno why but I like the above shot ^^ Not as much as the below shot thou :P
mmm she just begs for shots from every angle ^^
Nice details in her outfit~ and if you haven’t noticed by now… vn02 is also much more well endowed than normal miku ^^;
maybe it’s just ‘cuz i like the color green but i think this is an amazing release ^^;
‘nother look at her headset thing
Of course love her long flowing hair. Awesome twin tails ^^
‘nother look from above
Again used the highlight tone priority since vn02′s outfit has black + white.
Ah, actually do have one comparison shot. The good ‘ol gsc release:
sorry for the pic deluge, I was just having too much fun :P
Someday I’m gonna get around to making some improvised light controls… until then… ooo single light from the side! … … … ^^;;
not that that doesn’t change things up nicely… just wish i had other tricks up my sleeve ^^;
Probably the biggest downside to this figure is the price… retailing at 12,800 yen she’s nothing to sneeze at. amiami actually had her for 9800 yen and for some reason I got an additional 15% off (some sort of sale maybe?) so my final total w/ems shipping was 11,370 yen. Still pricey though ^^;
If you can spare the cash, a pleasure to behold and a solid addition to any collection ^^
