The official blog of figure maker Goodsmile updated today with several new photographs and a couple of pieces of Miku-related news. The first is that preorders for their 1/8 scale Hatsune Miku PVC (the one we first scooped at Wonder Festival) will begin next week! We can expect a crushing avalanche of interest in this item, and while Goodsmile is likely prepared for the high demand this time (based on the 50,000+ preorders they received for Nendoroid Miku), we’ll still be watching closely for announcement of the preorder and bring the news to you as fast as humanly possible. Better to be safe than sorry with these things…

Speaking of Goodsmile’s Miku Nendoroid, the other bit of news is that a second batch of the figure is on its way to official Goodsmile partner shops as I’m typing this. These include several stores that ship internationally, such as HLJ and J-List, so if you missed her when she first came out this could be an unexpectedly good chance to pick her up.

Stay tuned for further news on the 1/8 scale Miku preorder frenzy! (no more)
