There are currently 2 jumbo nendoroids of Hatsune Miku available, 1 was a prize in a lottery and can be obtained nowadays on the aftermarket. The other one was released by good smile company in November 2017. Since I was able to get my hands on both, I wanted to do a review which one is ''better'' and worth its money.
The painting is done quite well on this figure. Overall I had a hard time spotting any errors in the paint job.
Like you can see on her headphone, the paint is neat, also her tie and collar are well painted.
Same goes for her belt and skirt and sleeves.
The only thing that is bothering me, is her base. I had a hard time assembling it, that the manual was only in Japanese didn't help much.
The base is solid, however, you will need to support her tails otherwise she will knock over.
And some more neat painting on her headphones.
This Miku has some nice details on her collar. However, the paint doesn't completely match the sculpture.
The skirt is well painted and has some shiny paint on it, which I really like
Her bangs removed, they have certainly made sure that they do not just fall off.
The paint of this arm feels quite rushed over.
Some messy painting at the headphones.
I love her stand, it is like a little piano. Also her stand is lovely just like a big sturdy replica of the minature.
Her extra parts, 1 leg, 1 arm, and one squee face
There is a huge seam between her bangs and rest of the hair. Which is kinda a shame.
Almost like she screams: ''hug me!''
I like the Miku from 2017 more because I like the shiny paint, it feels more luxurious in some way. However, the paint job is less well executed, which is a shame. I like also that this figure has some extra parts, and had more displaying possibilities.
