Update on Dec 11th 2009: Included more information about VN02 Miku.
Just in case you are wondering about how this Miku figure comes about, it all started when Nagimiso did a character illustration for the VN02 mix of Miku’s original song “moon” [by iroha(sasaki)] in the PSP game “Hatsune Miku Project DIVA”. If you recall from the game the VN02 costume can be unlocked by clearing “moon” five times or more on Normal difficulty level with a Great (and above) result.
Now the collaboration between Nagimiso and Max Factory has brought about this astonishing 1/8 scale of a cybernetic Miku which you are seeing now.
This has got to be one of the most expensive 1/8 scale figures around, but VN02 Miku is simply too awesome. *w*
