Phew! Finally 2020 is over, hopefully 2021 will be a better year! (*•̀ᴗ•́*)و ̑̑ I thought I would go over today some of the additions to my collections I have gained towards the end of 2020-early start of 2021. Be warned this shall be very wordy and my photography skills are terrible! (;´Д`)

Figures


Racing Miku 2012 figma (ITEM #98979)

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/14/2606686.jpeg

Miku’s 2012 racing design has always been my favourite (I think it is just so spunky and cute! o(≧∇≦o)) and when I was younger, this figure was one the ones I had really wanted to own. I know this figure is not exactly rare but to own her now, I am so happy! Despite being an older figma, she is incredibly beautiful and her hair is really well sculpted. She comes with lots of fun pieces too!

Racing miku 2012 nendoroid (ITEM #98980)

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/14/2606688.jpeg

When I first started to collect Miku merch, I made a rule to myself I would not collect nendoroids. This was because firstly, I always thought Miku nendoroid faceplates looked the same. For example: I was disappointed when Miku harvest moon nendoroid, designed by Rella, did not utilise the artists style for the faceplates. Secondly, I really do not like figures with shiny hair o(≧∇≦o). A strange personal preference sure, but a handful of Miku nendos (especially the snow ones) have shiny plastic used for their hair instead of matte. This is relevant because I did not want to buy figures I did not completely love. Lastly, I knew if I bought one, I would most likely fall in love with the line and buy more o(≧∇≦o).

So what happened to lead me to buying a nendoroid? 。(*^▽^*)ゞ.Most new Miku nendoroids do utilise their designers’ art style for the faceplates, instead of opting to utilise the mirai style. This had led to some of the most stunning nendoroids I think have ever been produced (which led me to pre-ordering two).

I bought this lil lady because again, racing miku 2012 is one of my favourite miku designs and I rationalised I needed to understand “How they work” before my other two arrived. I do not regret my purchase; she is super cute! Her faceplates though are a nightmare to change. I preferred the additional face she comes with and whilst changing her face I accidently broke off one of her headphone decorations! A little super glue and she is good as new, but I do not think I’ll be changing her face anytime soon!

Goods

Miku heart x ribbon acrylic stand (ITEM #955883)

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/14/2606684.jpeg

This stand was available in the Mandarake I purchased my figures from, so I thought I would give her a home. If I remember correctly, her design is a runner up from a contest Sega held a few years ago in which artists submitted designs for a prize figure. Still debating whether I should pop her on my backpack or not o(≧∇≦o).

Miku with you 2019 acrylic stand.


https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/14/2606690.jpeg

So this one is a bit of a mystery (・_・ヾ. I purchased this stand knowing that it was most likely a bootleg, I just really like the Miku with you 2019 art! I tried to search online to see if I could find a similar stand from the Miku with you 2019 event that it could be a bootleg of, but the stand listed on the official goods website features completely different art. Then to further deepen the rabbit hole, I found what appeared to be legitimate sellers on sites like Yahoo!Japan and (If I remember correctly?) Rakuten selling the same stand. After receiving her, I still cannot figure out if she is a bootleg or not (;´д`)ゞ! The printing is nice quality and I can’t imagine how bootleggers would have been able to separate the background rose wreath in the official art to make two separate pieces. There’s also copyright on the base to the original artist, something bootlegs do not usually have. If anyone has any information on her I am curious to know! Overall, she is beautiful and massive which was a nice surprise, but I have struggled to put her on my designated figure shelf!

Berksha Sailor Moon goods

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2021/01/14/2606685.jpeg

Some overseas goods! So just to preface: I am not the biggest Sailor Moon fan (;´д`)ゞ. I have watched some of the show and from what I have seen its super fun! I bought this sweater with Chibiusa on and a phone case with Usagi on. The sweater is super soft and is designed to be oversized which I was surprised it was on me as I am super tall. (I had to up the brightness of the image as my room does not get a lot of light!)

The phone case has the print covered by a layer of plastic, so there is little chance of it coming off. The copyright is hidden cleverly behind Usagi on the inside, so it does not ruin the image. However, as soon as I put it on my phone the case began to get bad scratches ( ≧Д≦). You can’t see them unless in the light, but it is a shame since I like this case.

Media

Switch games
(ITEM #945261) (ITEM #539314)

I recently bought some new joy-cons and some switch games to play. Usually in my local arcade, I am terrible at Mario kart but I am somewhat decent on the switch? Perhaps that is due to easier controls. I got animal crossing as I thought it would be a great way to keep me relaxed during my thesis this year. It is a very wholesome game, though, I wish Tom Nook would stop putting me into debt ( ≧Д≦)!


And that is it! I hope everyone has a safe and happy 2021. Fingers crossed this year is better than the last ∠( ᐛ 」∠)_.

Stay safe!

tharglet8 d. temu#90064706For the Miku With You 2019 standee, I don't believe it is bootleg - rather it seems it might be related to the Chinese part of the tour, which would explain a rarity and lack of information.
Here is a Mercari seller who had a bunch.
Annoyingly they don't appear on the 2019 subsite for this event, so not sure how they were distributed.


Thank you so much! The seller I purchased mine from also had the other stands as well as the seller in the link you provided! That's what got me confused, as there was no information about it or the others on the official site!
