Hatsune Miku ~ World is Mine ~ 初音ミク ワールドイズマイン
Posted by meronpan on January 3, 2010
Another figure for vocaloid lovers, world is mine miku! Like BRS, this interpretation of her comes from a well received supercell release. Well… technically i think i heard that brs wasn’t actually based off miku…? Anyhow, on with the review~
Yet another release with a non-standard base. Extremely non-standard ^^;
Huge and fitted with a frame and stand so you can either prop it up or hang it on your wall.
Rose petals for a touch of elegance?
headphones in the corner
Was dissapointed that you can’t remove the frame. Don’t plan on hanging her on my wall so I woulda preferred something less conspicuous.
miku sticks pretty dang well to the base thanks to some magnets so you should have no fears hanging her.
After reading james’ review I was on the lookout for flaws and unfortunately they certainly turned up. Above you can see the sort of sloppy looking execution of the black bow.
At this magnification the pattern on her shirt looks a bit unrefined although I think it’s fine at regular viewing distances.
Perhaps the bigger flaws in my copy were on her hair.
Luckily you can’t really see them unless you’re really looking. Unless you view the view resolution version of the above pic you might not notice:
Kind of looks like her hair got chipped or something ;_; At least her pantsu look fine :P
Personally the only time I really look this closely at my figures is for the review so the flaws won’t bother me so much.
Hmm looks like I didn’t do the lighting properly above to see the things in her hair ^^;;
Paint job aside I love how her hair was done ^^
They did a weird translucent finish with the tips, not quite sure why ^^;
Dress looks alright, nothing special I guess.
Stockings black with reflective finish.
You can kinda see another flaw in her hair below ;_; In the pic right above her eye.
Really love her expression
Didn’t really both much with different backgrounds since her base acted as the bg for the most part ^^;
Overall, despite her flaws I like what they’ve done for this release. Obviously coulda been cleaner on the quality control but take a look at the source pic…
…and I think most will be happy with the final product. Also available with a lighter colored frame if you prefer.
For your convenience here’s the original vid (niconico):
and my favorite cover, this time by うさ (niconico)
foo-bar-baz took her off the base for a 360 view (forgot to do it myself ^^;), along with having great pics as usual.
james also has very nice pics along with a pair of ’em to view, including the natural colored frame.
Marisa is up next, yoroshiku!
