Fans of Hatsune Miku and Adventure Time now have their own lovely little companion mecha in the form of a stylized Mechatro WeGo from Sentinel. As collaborations go, this is definitely one of the more interesting ones.
For those that don’t know, Hatsune Miku is a virtual singer or Vocaloid that is hugely popular in Japan. She is essentially a virtual idol not all that dissimilar to Sharon Apple from Macross Plus and has a similarly massive fan base to match (shown below).
Over the years, Miku has had all manner of toy releases and tie-ins, with things like the Virtual On crossover in Super Robot Wars UX on the 3DS being obviously notable (shown below).
However, this new WeGo toy is a bit different as it combines three brands in one: Miku, Frederator Studios, and the WeGo toys. The latter is somewhat of a cult phenomenon in Japan and receives all manner of variants.
This new version is equal parts adorable and impressively put together, so you are in for a real treat!
The review will be up surely and I can assure you it will be rather lovely.
