I didn’t know why they called him Jiji and went to twitter to ask and it turns out it’s a nickname for Ojii-chan, people call him Ojii-chan because he’s the oldest sword in the game! SO CUTE!

Nendoroid HMO Miku Bootleg Warning!

| Bootleg Warning, Nendoroid

This is HMO Miku, a Nendoroid created back in 2011. It’s based on the artwork off the cover of the album Hatsune Miku Orchestra. She’s really adorable and personally one of my favorite nendoroids, which is why I want to send out a warning to be aware and careful of bootlegs. This ugly monstrocisty is the bootleg of HMO Miku. Buying her she didn’t cost much and came in a plastic bag. While a seasoned figure collector will know she’s a bootleg you’re average fan might not know. Overall the quality is not only terrible she did not come with a base to display her, she doesn’t stand on her own and she was even missing her left arm. The original Nendoroid [...] Read More »
