Vocaloid Miku pullip is finally home. I just got Miku today from Pullipstyle but I have the entire set (including a second Miku) coming from Entertainment Earth next month, and a limited edition snow Miku coming from Toymalayasia in June.
I have been wanting a Miku pullip since before she was announced, I had long term plans to have a custom of her made but now that there is an official release I will probably scrap them. I am just so happy to finally have her in my hands.
Miku comes with her trademark headphone set as well as her leeks. Her stock is decent quality, I just wish it wasn’t so plasticy feeling it makes it feel kind of cheap. The boots are a bit odd, I know making Miku’s boot must have been a bit problematic but to me they end up looking a bit silly.
Miku’s face up is kind of a generic anime-esque face up, it reminds me of Angelique’s a bit. It’s a nice face up but it is also a bit bland, I find myself wishing it was just a bit more dynamic.
Miku made the translation into pullip pretty well, I think this really was a wise collaboration for Groove Inc compared to some of their other missteps (Neo Angelique- none of the dolls seem very popular for example).
I love the color of Miku’s wig but mine at least is very prone to flyaways already. There were also quite a few leftover loose cut hairs in her bangs which just seemed sloppy in my opinion.
I wish at least one of her hands was a grippy hand or she came with a second set of grippy hands as she can not hold her leeks by herself, which honestly just kind of annoys me.
