Vault Review: Figma #100
Hatsune Miku Append ver.

Miku’s other parts are an alternate lower torso, biceps, and skirt pieces which give her the look of the Append’s cover art.  In this version the various buckles and straps around her sleeves and belt are undone, and her “necktie” is flowing in the breeze and revealing a center slip of skin along her stomach.

Last but not least are the customary alternate hands.  She gets one pair of splayed fingers, one pair of flat palms, one pair of holding hands, and one pair of fists.

Like most Figmas, Miku has fantastic articulation.  Her ponytails, head, shoulders, elbows, knees, and ankles are all standard Figma joints which work like swivel/hinges.  Her upper torso, inner shoulders, and hips are all ball joints.  Her wrists are more traditional swivel/hinges.  Her skirt pieces can hamper some extreme posing with her legs, but her skirts are also removable, so it can easily be remedied.

Miku comes with one additional accessory, a USB cord that can attach to the back of her belt and resembles an electronic tail.  Her Figma stand can also attach to this belt piece, or you can use the alternate C-clip if you’d rather she be wearing her tail.

In celebration of their 100th Figma, Max Factory also included a bonus accessory with a certain number of Miku figures: Figma sized headphones.  There are three colors: black, gray, and dark brown.  Only one headphone was packed per figure, and they are all blind bagged so you don’t know what color you’d be getting.  It really surprised me how nice these are.  Both ear pieces are separate from the band and can swivel or be pulled down a bit to accommodate almost any five or six inch character.  Not too bad for a bonus item!

You can pick this figure up for about $30, plus shipping.  And like most of the figures I order from Japan, I’m pretty happy with the end product.  She has a very captivating look to her design that I actually prefer to her more anime-inspired cute look.  I also like her more realistic face, which tends to blend in better with the other robo-girls on my shelf.

    I think that last picture on the first page killed me.

    I watched all the Saw movies while eating spaghetti, but that picture is so disturbing, I am now dead.

    On a scale of one to ten, six being the highest, I would rate this death as a four.

    • AdventureVault

      Sorry Bray, didn’t mean to kill you. I was going for that assembly line look.

      Just to reassure everyone, no robot girls were harmed in the making of this review. 😀

  • dayraven

    where’d you get the figma sized couch? that’s fresh.

    like bray, that first page, final photo kind of bugged me, but i thought the fig had fallen apart on you… good to see that’s not the case.

    i think the ponytail joints are hilarious. in a cool way, they just add so much personality to her posing options. the blue katana is a nice touch too.

      The couch is from a dollhouse accessory set I picked up at Hobby Lobby. It also came with a chair in the same style. I’ve been trying to find more furniture for my figures to lounge around on, and these do really well I think.

      The katana is from the DC Direct Azreal.

    I got my Miku in the mail last week and she’s quickly become one of my favorite display pieces. I did a little review of my own with some nice pics over on RangerBoard.

    I’ll be honest with you guys–the main selling points for this girl was that she’s well articulated and barefoot. It’s a rare combination, believe it or not.

    • AdventureVault

      Nice review Catman. I’m pretty happy with her as well, but nothing beats that Aegis figure! 🙂

      • Battle Catman

        Thanks. I love to read toy reviews, so whenever I get a new figure and post pictures of it on RangerBoard, I write a little mini-review to go along with it.

  • manekochan

    I like the racing figure best, but this one’s hair is awesome. Also, I totally agree that the last pic on the previous page is creepy. Very well done, though.

  • dayraven

    as a suggestion for future reviews vault, could you possibly make a ruler board like noisy’s for doing the “scale photo” i think that would be really helpful for most folks. in this case, i think you’ve done a good job of showing the overall scale of the girls, but w/ those less familiar w/ your figma reviews (like those pesky new readers we keep luring in from other sites)

    oh, and do the NECA turtles. soon. or else. 🙂

    • AdventureVault

      I’ll have Manekochan make one. She’s good with the rulers and the pencils and the such.

      Blarg, first I have to find where my turtles are…

  • mr Articulate

    Another fantastic review. Golly, I love this site! I’m going to look for that couch! And the hair shows what’s possible for a Marvel Legends MEDUSA!

    • AdventureVault

      Check out the Hobby Lobby website before you do. They usually put up a 40% off coupon at least once a month.

  • johann

    first up i recently found out about vocaloids and have fallen in love with miku.
    i dig your review.
    gotta ask though what’s with the tail?
    it just kind of throws me as she has no other animalistic characteristic looks.
    she look amazing though.
    wish i had the kagamin cosplay fig they made.

    • AdventureVault

      Don’t know why they chose to give her a tail, but it is still electronically influenced. Her tail is really just a black cord with a USB-like port at the end of it. It also connects into her belt, which has that whole speaker motif. It’s an odd design choice, but I still think it looks pretty good.

  • StrangePlanet

    Neat. I have one of these on itsway to me cause the design is so cool. No idea who this is so thanks for the info. Nice review and I’ll echo Dayraven again and ask for a ruler or comparison pics of these kind of things next to a ML or a DCUC for size relation.
