♡ Sakura Hatsune Miku Nendroid ♡


The one thing I wanted to purchase at the expo last month was a figure. At one point, I didn't mind if it was a figma or a nendroid but I knew that I wanted a figure and holy shit (excuse my language) I was going to get my hands on a figure. That was, until, I heard from my best friend that Good Smile Company was going to have a booth at expo and when I saw the list of what they were selling, I instantly knew what I was going to get and going to get it I indeed was (wow, I am so sorry)
Good Smile Company (グッドスマイルカンパニー) specialise in hobby products, specifically figures from animes, games and even popular tv series, and they seem to be pretty much one of the biggest companies to ship these products to customers outside of Japan. All of their products are of the highest quality from the moment they are planned to the moment they are released. Heck, I'm not going to lie, but Good Smile Company (other than J-Box/J-List) will be the only company I will ever purchase/pre-order future figures from because they're... just the best from what I have heard to what I had experienced at expo.

I had my mind set on two figures, the Sakura Hatsune Miku Nendroid and/or the Magical Snow Miku Nendroid... it depended on the price really but when seeing the figures in person, there really was only one clear winner and that was the Sakura Miku version. I actually loved how on the side of the box, there were different examples of what you can do with your nendroid and all of the pictures were so cute I honestly don't understand how people can choose!

I actually wanted to take like a gazillion, bajillion pictures of this gorgeous little figure, but on the last decent picture a massive, steel grey rain cloud descended upon my house and covered my room into darkness so alas I only have these few lovely pictures for now!

I don't know which is the best part about her... the fact that she has different coloured sakura prints on her hair or that she has two interchangeable mics - one covered in sakura and the other her usual version. I love how you can put a single sakura in her hand or make her eat an onigiri ball. You can also stand her up in a large sakura... type... stand thing (I don't know how to describe it) or sit her down on a stack of cushions. And the face, oh my god, the face.

The choice of three faces is a nice surprise. I honestly believed that you could only have, like, two interchangeable faces but no. She has her ecstatic face (pictured above), her 'emoji' face and then her "oh shit, I've done gone fucked shit up so I'm going to cry and look cute as fuck" face

Just... omg. Oh, one thing I did find out, the cherries you can put over her pigtails are quite honestly the most skinniest and fragile things I have come across and I did accidentally snap one when I was putting the pieces all back in the box... so now she is never leaving the box ever again for fear that I'll kill her. OK that's a lie, the cherry piece shall be fixed and she will emerge from the box again but once my room has been redecorated or when I've moved abroad... I haven't decided quite yet but jfc stupid gorilla paws breaking something immediately, I honestly cannot have anything nice again ever.

I do believe that I will have to take some more photographs of this little angel, when the weather stops being such a temperamental bitch! As I don't own a lightbox or any fancy lighting equipment, natural light is really my only source for things for now... but I'm excited to take some more pictures of this little beauty! Also, it's sad really, but I love the fact that my best friend and I got the same nendroid at expo! Do we have amazing taste or do we have amazing taste? Ok I'm shutting up now before you all want to punch me...

Thanks for reading!
