A Hatsune Miku and My Little Pony collaboration is currently in the works at Kotobukiya. The news was announced by the Hatsune Miku official Twitter account and revealed that the Vocaloid singer will be reimagined as a pony as part of Kotobukiya’s Bishoujo lineup. While there are no further details on a release date, Kotobukiya has stated that the statue will be “coming soon.”
The collaboration figure will also include a “Miku Pony,” as shown in the announcement tweet below. In it, the pony has Miku’s signature twin ponytails, as well as her necktie and “01” arm symbol. Kotobukiya has yet to confirm a price for the statue. However, other My Little Pony statues cost between ¥11,000 and ¥17,000 (about $101 to $156).

Shunya Yamashita designed the art and has worked with Kotobukiya on its My Little Pony Bishoujo statue series before. Currently, the My Little Pony lineup features twelve different statues, each including a pony and bishoujo version of the series’ characters. The Bishoujo line also includes many other characters, from DC comics’ Poison Ivy to Darkstalkers’ Morrigan.
The Hatsune Miku My Little Pony collaboration is the fifth in the #MikuWorldCollab global collaboration series. Back in February, Crypton Future Media announced a collaboration with Pusheen as part of the series. The company is also holding a Hatsune Miku Expo entirely for free, through its Twitch and Youtube accounts on June 6, 2021.
