If you're a hardcore arcade play -- hardcore enough to go to Japan to play Virtua Fighter 5 R -- then you're sure to love the latest wave of accessories. They've gone ahead and released a set of Nendoroid Vocaloid figures to accessorize your character with. So, if you're a fan of Miku Hatsune or Ren/Len Kagamine, then you can buy/try to win these figures and have them decked out on your character's hip.
For the three of you who have never been within earshot of Topher, Miku and Ren/Len are rather popular in Japan. These ladies are the mascots for the insanely popular Vocaloid software. The most adorable of all the Miku Hatsune figures is the Nendoroid version, in my opinion, and so it's wonderful to see this version of Miku and friends chosen.
I'm sure Topher is going to smother me in my sleep at Otakon because I didn't let him post about Miku Hatsune. Remember me fondly, readers!
