Been waiting for this moment for many moons now ^^ Recently got my grubby mitts on the latest factory sample of Mirai Suenaga. Its a great feeling to have ones creation made into a figure like this - but not just any figure - the figma brand is one which I have enjoyed for many moons.

This was all made possible thanks to you and your support! I want to particularly thank all those who pre-ordered her and am pleased to say that we sold much more than expected and met the target so that we can do the Nendoroid version!

Had a surprisingly large number of sales from Japan too - reached number 3 in the toy sales ranking for Amazon Japan.

Mirai is the first figma to be sculpted by the Good Smile Company team and you can see her bits n bobs at the official GSC site. You can also read about how the figma Mirai started off as an April fools a couple O years ago.
And if you are wondering about the Itachari bicycle - its made by Kodomut.

The box which I designed with the GSC team. Wanted to keep the design simple.

Shes got a "not to be sold outside of Japan" printed on the box but the distributor should stick their own sticker over that part. Shes region free ^^

Mirai in the blister packaging with a laptop, Mirai-chan doll, handkerchief, camera and crying face. This is the first factory sample though so maybe a wee bit rough around the edges. She will be out end of June.
Folks who are interested in getting their hands on one, try some of the following trusted dealers. Some of these dealers have stopped taking pre-orders and wont be selling her until shes in stock though.

Saber has a new toy to play with.

5731586805_0bd67abd7a_o

I'll be getting at least a carton to keep ^^;

5732133580_81d9915c25_o

Mirai out of the box - first thing to do is to give her a katana and see what she does with it.

5731587059_320bc48d9f_o

Braids and ahoge are soft so should not snap off unless you chew on them.

5731587635_14e5f660fb_o

Need one of the Mirai cosplayers (scroll a bit down that page to see them) to pose with Saber for a photo.

5732134544_9613ea83a1_o

Looks like Mirai found herself a very comfy pillow.

5732134888_ef43aeabb9_o

Comes with a 3.50Ghz laptop with 34GBs of memory. You can install OSX, Windows or whatever on it.

5731588529_154d6341e7_o

Hope Mirai can help out a bit while I look for a new full time member of staff.

5731588677_eb63f0f873_o

Mirai comes with a Lumix LX8 which she will use to help take photos around the streets of Tokyo.

5732135816_bffdd93860_o

Mirai is being crying for some reason.

5731589457_18a605783c_o

Its because the Gruesome Twosome are making Mirai do an ecchi video.

5731589633_ed855d37a5_o

Mirai then realizes that she has the ability to Awaken.

5732136672_6211be9198_o

Awakening sequence initiates.

5731590375_d1101f2a9c_o

Awakening scene continues for a long time.

5732137138_e738b3fc0b_o

Mirai : "I'm not in the mood right now to make an ecchi video so I will show you what this blade is made of"
Spinzaku : "Noooooooooooo! I just wanted a few seconds of your lovely eyes!"
Lulu : "Spinzaku, please stay alive for a just few more seconds."

5731590671_fb4f2d1940_o

Mirai : "Eat this!"

5732137400_167fef6ae0_o

Spinzaku : "Nooooooooo nom nom nom."

5731590939_1f1fb3a1f0_o

Lulu : "Enough of this! I need Spinzaku to shoot a yaoi video after so need him alive for just another day."

5731591077_c853ee466e_o

Spinzaku and Lulu start to wipe poo from their shoe on Mirai's head.

5732137842_b39efcb047_o

Reika arrives on the scene with Mirai's main source of energy - SmallusMiraius.

5732138008_4ef0d49521_o

Mirai needs to look into the eyes of SmallusMiraius to recharge her energy.

5732138150_a09a3b3c1c_o

In the meantime, Reika deals with the Gruesome Twosome.

5731591693_82c8b398e2_o

Mirai is all charged up and also changes into her Gantz suit. Hmmm, this looks incredibly familiar!

5732138414_01ed911bbc_o

But Mirai decided that she didn't want to look like Reika so she changed into her Drossel suit.

5731591971_13f9f48bed_o

But then Mirai got a bit too hot and changed into her Lily outfit.

5732138802_9a422b23a9_o

But then Mirai decided that she wanted a breeze down below.

5731592487_669a279223_o

And by this time I gave up on doing the return of Figma Theater as it was taking too long ^^;

5731593063_f8cc481791_o

Maid Mirai. Hmmmmm. Maybe I should just spray the pink bits orange.

5731593293_c8067047e1_o

Mikuru does Mirai cosplay.

5731593429_d888f01062_o

Haruhi tries some of that Mirai cosplay too.

5732140242_12ed15179f_o

Forgot to put on the sukumizu parts for this photo.

5731593815_d56f7bb399_o

Mirai looks good with blaster.

5732140542_f122851ce0_o

Time to om nom nom Mirai.

5732140808_e7801db254_o

Mugi does Mirai cosplay.

5732140942_5e079d0733_o

What Kyon wears when nobody is looking.

5732141236_18c5a569af_o

Got this set of trays from Muji for about 2,000 yen.

5731594793_e35c2e2400_o

I forgot to ask for orange shimapan ToT
Nothing that an orange marker and some Gundam top coat wont fix though ^^;

5732141496_7751f863eb_o

I've only got just the one sample at the moment and cant wait to have more to stick around the house and car ^^;

5732141628_97d3d9c70b_o

As you have noticed from many of these photos, many other figma faces can be exchanged with Mirai to do a Face Off.

5732141754_f1a1578cd0_o

Mirai together with the Good Smile Company mascot - Gussuma Seijin [グッスマ星人].

5732141900_4cae12617a_o

Saber does Mirai cosplay.

5731595667_c23db0eab8_o

Neck a bit too long ^^;

5731595931_c85d8cae6c_o

I mentioned that I was concerned with Mirai's hair at the back which covers the figma hole. In many of the past figma's, its always been difficult to get the figma stand in that hole due to the hair. Good Smile remedied this with an extra attachment that you can see here.

5731596079_bccb3ba740_o

Virtual Idol Mirai.

5731596215_a9a422d7c0_o

Kagami does Mirai cosplay.

5731596321_3ae93593bb_o

Playing with Mirai at dindins with the Mikufes folks.

5732143634_255281d72c_o

No ZettaiRyouiki but very nice Futomomo.

5731597431_8ee845838a_o

There will be a few climbing all over the dashboard ^^;

5732144362_e8280ed056_o

Scale figure is planned too and I cant believe who they got to do the illustration - tis somebody that *all of you* know ^^;
