Hmmm.

So, despite being someone who is not a stranger to the Vocaloid fandom, this release still puts a really bad taste in my mouth. This is not a special variant, or a limited release. As of right now this is the release of Fei-Yan for the Composite line. I don't have any opposition to the figure itself, but I haven't heard of any talk of releasing a proper Fei-Yan, and if I were a bigger Virtual On fan I'd be incredibly P.O'd.

I find that frustrating too. A nice pink original Fei-Yen would look great with the Temjin. This figure is pleasing enough on the basis of its own visual aesthetics, but the idea of combining Miku with a Virtualoid just isn't cool or interesting to me.

I take solace in the suspicion/dread that if they did a proper Fei-Yen, it would probably be Fei-Yen The Tiger, which I hate. I have a similar conviction/fear with regard to Bandai producing a Composite Ver. Ka Apharmd The Hatter... and no other Apharmd variant.

Haha, now that I've been replied to I can't go back and fix my pretty terrible spelling error, which I made twice, and am not entirely sure why I did.

Edit: I even though that I wrote Yen the first time around...

The leek thing is based on

The leek thing is based on the Levan Polkka, which Hatsune Miku sang:

However, the leek thing happened before Hatsune...

So it's a Meme adopted by a Meme, and then realized in toy form as a tribute to robot in a video game. The mind bleeds...

HEY! The Virtuaroids have had

HEY!

The Virtuaroids have had Sega Saturns (shiro!), Dreamcasts, and then non-specific CD drives on their backs but never a Genesis.

Sega does what Nintendon't.

Ahem. Bandai never made any

Ahem.

Bandai never made any Virtual On Oratorio Tangram figures. That was Kaiyodo and Kotobukiya.

Get your failed Sega consoles that I still own right.

Well I'm not a big fan of Miku but I have to admit I think I prefer the blue and black color scheme to the original pink. Too bad it isn't just a variant of the regular Fei Yen design instead of a vocaloid tie in. Taste in music is subjective of course but to me it sounds like somebody inhaled a bunch of helium and tried to sing a ringtone.

Possibly one of the more

Possibly one of the more bizarre crossovers from recent years.

No way

No crossover will ever top "Star Wars Transformers" for strangeness.
