Nendoroid Hatsune Miku 2.0 Is A Neat Upgrade Over The Original

By Ishaan . December 18, 2012 . 11:20am

Hatsune Miku is getting a new Nendoroid figurine—Nendoroid Hatsune Miku 2.0. What’s the difference between this one an the original? Take a look at both of them below.


The original Miku Nendoroid is the one on the left. The one on the right is the 2.0 version. The basic differences come down to her having a slightly slimmer body than the original and a metallic paint finish. She’s also been completely re-sculpted from scratch. The original Miku, the Good Smile Company say, was Nendoroid #33, making her among the earliest Nendoroid figurines.


Miku 2.0, on the other hand, is Nendoroid #300. Other improvements to her design include new joints in her hair, which you can see above. Additionally, her upper arms and arm covers are separate parts, which allows for more poses.

As far as other accessories are concerned, Miku 2.0 comes with a guitar, keyboard and speakers. These are based on the Hatsune Miku and Superstars: Project Mirai game.


Finally, it’s also easier to swap facial expressions now. The front fringe part of her hair comes off, instead of having to remove the neck joint. Miku 2.0 will remain compatible with other Nendoroid expressions. She’s up for pre-order now.

    WANTTTT!!! Is there a site where it’s available now? I checked out AmiAmi yesterday and it was sold out T_T I’m not a fan of figures (maybe it’s a dormant trait XD) but the stupid expression she makes while playing the instruments is just priceless XD

    • You can try Hobby Search and Hobby Link Japan. If you don’t mind importing from Japanese websites, you can also do that with middlemen, although that would cost you a bit more.

        Thanks, I settled for the Goodsmile online shop in the end :) I just HAD to order this ^ ^ Gah, now to wait til freakin’ MAY!!! >.<

    I’m sorry. I’ve always seen people collecting a LARGE amounts of anything as creepy. This includes rich Victorians collecting fine China and girls collecting stuffed dolls. They’re weird too…

      But Video Games get a free pass right?

    • That’s not a nice thing to say. Nothing wrong with having a hobby, nor the magnitude of collection. As long as a collector is mindful enough to not become obsessed to the point of fulfilling their hobby at the other’s expense (in more ways than one), there’s no harm done.

      I’m sure there’s something that you collect as well. I know some girls who’s closets are bursting with clothes they don’t wear.

    I’m REALLY happy about the new head joints. I confess that I really don’t change my nendos’ faceplates much because I’m really nervous about the neck joint snapping [since my BRS snapped literally the first time I tried changing her face] It looks like with the advent of competing lines like Kotobukiya’s Cu Poche and Bandai’s Chibi Arts, Good Smile is stepping up their game, and I love it!

  • Charmchar

    its’s so adorable! It’s neat you can switch out the body parts to make a new pose, but sure is creepy lol

  • Lord Highawesomeparty

    As long as she’s not too expensive, I’ll definitely be picking this up. I’ve always wanted a normal Miku nendoroid to go along with my 2012 Snow Miku.

      3900 yen (:D) on the company site, and you get a preorder pouch too. Plus 2k yen for EMS shipping. Then there’s our joy, customs, I guess.

  • Maia Kasoya

    I’m not gonna complain about her. I think she looks great, and is a wonderful improvement over the original.

    I WAS disappointed when she was revealed as #300… But then my opinion changed as I saw her various extras, the next 10 Nendoroids after #300, and the new Snow Miku for 2013. And then there’s that pre-order bonus Nendo pouch… That’s just really pushing me to get her now, haha.
