Konnichiwa Minna-san! Here again for one of those
long over due figure reviews. Today will be taking a peek (and a very long one at that XD) into GSC’s 1/8 rendition of Lat’s popular 3D model from the “MikuMikuDance” program. An immediate grab for me after seeing a certain pair of red rimmed megane.
The Lat Type Miku, sporting a rather bouncy look, gives off a really happy and adorable vibe and when paired up with the incredibly moe smile, any Mikutard out there would be sure to shriek out in joy.
Looking it at the side reveals the full beauty of her flowing hair. She comes with accessories such as 2 microphones (a black and grey one), 2 pairs of glasses (can be used for nendo petits) as well as, 2 stands (one to match the one for the original GSC Miku)
Her simple but KAWAII glasses seemingly give a new feel and character to Miku, it levels up Miku’s moeness up to 9999, too adorable even to human eyes >_< GSC did a good yet standard job on Miku's face, nothing much has to be said.
Something to always watch out on when buying scale figs are small details which sometimes determine whether or not they’re actually worth it.
Small details, like the l and r in the head set,
Paint details and wordings in the collar.
Her hair pins have clear purple parts which makes them way more awesome <======= obvious sucker for clear parts XD
Also love the Hatsune Miku wording in Miku’s arm
Her hair makes you think that Miku is actually in motion, just hate the plastic look to it, it feels very very cheap T^T
Lat Miku also features a new top, painted in a slight glossy dirty white which profiles Miku in a new but very refreshing way.
Same glossy look like her top (<==== insert zettai ryouiki and shimapan fetish here)
More details in her skirt. . . . . .
Love the figure, yes, though one thing kept me thinking, why did GSC make Miku’s skirt removable O.o? . . . . . . . . . Now featuring Miku in all her “stripped”? glory!
Mold and Shading is done very well with the bellybutton and the butt, was GSC expecting us to display a skirtless Miku?
Putting all things said aside, I really love this version of Miku as well as taking pictures of her, making it worth the time and effort.
GSC, being true to their word, did a great job on the quality of the figure, a plethora of small details and a simple but nice paint job combined with the Miku’s moe and the cheerful like dynamism of the figure, provides fans and non-fans alike, a must buy scale figure, probably not the best Miku out there, but definitely is a must buy. A personal favorite because of its overwhelming cuteness. Bought her around for 5500 yen from a certain hobby shop around here in my neck of woods.
(thanks Greattoys !).
This pretty much concludes my review, hope like always, that you’d drop by again!
