Miku Hatsune – World Is Mine (Good Smile Company)

February 4th, 2010 11 Commented

Supercell feat. Miku Hatsune: World is Mine!

This figure came in early last month. I didn’t have the time back then because I was busy in my daily work life and, of course, I was trying to complete my posts on the Korea tour. Finally, I did some photo sessions with Miku Hatsune over the weekend.

When I opened the parcel, I didn’t like what I saw. The box, in my opinion, isn’t good looking at all. In fact, I find it rather ugly, probably due to some dents and worn out sides (see the picture below). My preference still goes along with Alter’s packaging. It’s so stylish, you can refer to the one on Rei Ayanami (though my box was damaged, thanks to our local postal service, SingPost).


This figure is manufactured by Good Smile Company. It is a 1/8 scale figure, approximately 220mm in height with stand and 180mm without stand. Sculpted by Sakurako Iwanaga, this figure comes in two versions, one with a natural frame and the other, with a brown frame (which is the one I bought).


Miku is detachable from the frame. However, once you put her on the frame, she will lie there firmly due to the magnetic technology employed. Therefore, collectors can use it as either a wall-mounted decoration or a leaning ornament

Let’s look at the base. It’s nicely sculpted I think. It looks natural in a sense that one may really mistaken it as a cloth.


The headphone is placed on the top right hand side of the base.


On the bottom right hand side, there are some sculpted flower petals.


The words “World is Mine” are clearly printed. There are many reviewers whom received the figure without the printed words. It’s kind of sad to hear about the poor quality control.


It was a sunny day. So, I decided to bring Miku out for some outdoor photography. We started off at the seaside. Relaxing on the clear sandy beach with an umbrella sheltering her from the scorching sun.


Look at her pair of beautiful legs.


Nothing else matters, only Miku as the center of attraction… World is Mine!

Next, Princess Miku was brought to a park where she enjoys the wonderful greenery.

With flowers to accompany her, she seemed to be in a world of her own now.

After a long day out, Princess Miku was back to her comfortable red-black checkered cloth to rest.

In conclusion, as you could already see, Good Smile Company does make beautiful figures (remember the Saber Lily figure that I posted a while back?), apart from those little cute nendoroids.

    I see this figure with a better opinion now thanks to your photos. She’s lovely surrounded by sands and plants but Miku was always amazingly cute so it’s not surprising :)
    She must take a lot of room with a “base” like that ?

    Woah I love the outdoor shots especially the one with the umbrella :D All she needs are some shades to complete the look!!

    ohhh another beauty for the collection! i have to agree with Katsura, these photos changed my view on this figure ^^ i like the shots with her and the red flowers, nice contrast in colors, but they are all really great shots :D

    how will you display her? wall mounted sounds scary ^^;;

    OMG…. you review is breaking my heart :( When i think about the box with my Miku who’s lost for now 2 months … :(
    Anyway…
    Finally a review of Miku who stand out the crowd. I was a bit bored to see her always in it’s base set or on another tissue.
    Thanks for those superb photos!
    I like the one took on the beach with an umbrella and the writings on the sand! Very original.
    Continue to surprise us like this! ;)

    I’m like you, i found the box awful. It made me think of old boxes from my grand-mother with soaps in it ^^

  5. Thanks for visiting my lonely site! :-)
    I got this version of Miku as well, thought the natural frame didn’t match the darker scheme of the “bed”.

    Liking the pics of the figure outdoor, I want to do some outdoor shots as well, but right now it’s in the middle of winter and there’s nothing but dead plants and snow where I am. :-( I’m so jealous of your nice weather! LOL

      @VF
      Thank you for visiting my site too. In fact, I like four-season country as I had only seen snow (one-day snow) once when I was in US. I kinda miss the snow scene. I’d do an outdoor snowy photo shoots if I were there :)

      • ^ Yeah, for sure, I know what you mean. [i]The grass is always greener on the other side.[/i] LOL I’ve seen so much snow, I’m sick of it – so tired of shoveling snow from the driveway. :-P

    I love the shot on the beach with the umbrella. It’s very elegant and pretty.

  7. divinelight says:

    beautiful, but she seems like an adult in this version.
    like always, outdoor shooting gives the best lights.
