Hatsune Miku CM ver. by Good Smile Company

hatsune_miku_cm_ver_19

The widely known Hatsune Miku from the Vocaloid series is presented here by Good Smile Company as a 1/8 scale PVC figure modeled after her appearance in the commercial shown below.

The main differences between this figure and the previous version released by Good Smile Company is that she is featured here with closed eyes and a white base with snowflakes on it.

This CM version of Miku is an exclusive that was only available either at Wonder Festival 2009 or at the Good Smile Online Shop. Priced at only 4,500 yen ($49.25 USD) to thank her supporters, this figure is definitely a steal.

Here are some other fun facts you might want to know:

  • Release Date: 07/2009
  • Height: 18cm
  • Sculptor: YOSHI (Torepangu)
  • Sculpting Assistance: Nendoron

Now on with the photos!

First up are shots of the entire figure.

Her clothes are a glossy metallic black/gray that goes along well with her characteristic teal. Only one foot is connected to the base with the connector being free to swivel. This allows you to somewhat reposition her on the base if desired.

With her hand on her headset and eyes closed, Miku appears to be engrossed in her music. This feeling is supported by her long twin-tails that seem to enclose the entire figure. An excellent job by the sculptor!

Next are some close-up shots.

In my opinion, any figure released by Good Smile Company is a high quality figure that is worth owning. As for which version of Miku I like better, I somewhat prefer the original one with her eyes visible. However, the CM version is an exclusive and I’m a sucker for limited edition stuff.

It should be quite an abundant year for Miku figures with the Max Factory and the World is Mine versions coming out soon.

    I prefer the CM version, and I am damned for never noticing this when it was available. Gorgeous photos. I’m soooo envious right now.

    Looking at ebay now, the cheapest one is about $160… definitely no steal anymore. Ah well. Gotta stick to the normal version then.

    You have a better chance looking for one on Japan Y! Auction.^^

    The last one I saw last week sold for 6,000 yen. Even with all the proxies fees, it will probably be less than $100 USD.

    I recommend waiting until November for a cheaper price, that’s when this version will be released again.

    I usually tend to like figures that have their eyes open more, but this one works because of the feel.

    Hmm, to be honest, I’m not too big on the clossed eyes, something about it looks off to me.

    @nekosasu: Thanks, Ebay is just hit and miss. Have to keep on checking it now and then.

    @Micchi: Same here, but I agree.

    @Snark: Hm, I see. This is my first figure with closed eyes, but it seems to be fine.

    Since it was a limited release years ago, you would have to find it on a secondary market like eBay.
