New Hatsune Miku Figure Is Based On Evangelion Character Artist’s Redesign


Recently, Evangelion character designer Yoshiyuki Sadamoto redesigned Japanese vocaloid icon Hatsune Miku. Now that redesign has been turned into a physical figure by Japanese anime merchandiser Good Smile Company (thanks Rocket News). 


The figure stands at 20 centimeters (7.9 inches) tall and strikes a pose with her digi-keytar. One major if subtle difference with Sadamoto’s redesign is the hair being a slightly lighter shade of blue. It’s actually the same Ayanami Blue as the official Evangelion paint.


While the figure won’t be going on sale until May 2016, Good Smile Company is taking pre-orders through its website from now until September 30th. For 12,000 yen ($100) you get the figure as well as a 420 x 297 mm (16.5 x 11.7 inch) tapestry of the original Sadamoto Miku illustration.
