Hatsune Miku is one of the best-known anime style characters out there. She started as a mascot for a Vocaloid singing voice synthesizer software product. Her first appearance happened on August 31, 2007, featuring her in the immortal turquoise twintail hair style and wearing a skirt, sleeveless shirt, a same-color necktie with some turquoise decorations. Initially, she gained popularity in Japan, and after a few years, she became a true iconic phenomenon worldwide.

Today, due to her popularity, she has an expansive variety of products and merch based on her. From keychains, figures, cosplay to motorcycles, racing teams and hell... Miku enjoyers even style their guns after her both in-game and real life...

Biggest Hatsune Miku Figure

Hatsune Miku has been crafted into life-sized figures multiple times, especially during events or exhibitions. Unfortunately, these figures were not available for sale, and their exact measurements were not revealed. But knowing that Miku's height is 158cm (~5.2ft) the statues will have to at least match her height. Here are few examples of life-sized figures we found:

Biggest Miku is at least 158cm (~5.2ft) height.

We'll keep our ears to the ground, cause there should be a bigger Miku somewhere out there 👂

But what we found in the process is the biggest Hatsune Miku plushie! The plushie measures at 92cm long x 102cm wide x 73cm deep (36.22in x 40.16in x 28.74in). and was made by Spiritale. This king of merch will set you back 66,000JPY (~445USD).

Rarest Hatsune Miku Figure

It's hard to determine the rarest Hatsune Miku figure due to the subjective nature of rarity. Is it defined by availability in a specific region like Japan or China? Is it based on a small release quantity? What if someone crafted a single Hatsune Miku Garage Kit? You see where I'm going with this? Therefore, what seems to make the most sense is a figure produced by a reputable company with a limited enough release.

Rarest Hatsune Miku Official Figure

There are certainly many rare variants of Hatsune Miku, given the sheer number of figure models released. However, what we consider one of the rarest figures of all is the Hatsune Miku - Good Smile Color version Nendoroid. This figure has a release quantity of ONE - yes, you read that right. Good Smile Company produced only one figure for a WonHobby Photo Contest held back in 2009 during the Wonderful Hobby Life For You!! 9 festival. Interestingly, the figure isn't listed anywhere on the Good Smile Company site; it just randomly pops up in social media feeds.

One of the rarest Miku figures has a circulation quantity of 1.

Rarest Hatsune Miku Fan Made Figure

In terms of garage kits and custom made figures, perhaps the most successful attempt was made back in 2011 when someone skillfully combined two figures into one (kitbashed) figure. The outcome was the Hatsune Miku "wedding dress version." While the original cost of the two figures was around 16,630 JPY (208.61 USD) at that time, the resulting figure was sold for a whopping 389,000 JPY (4879 USD). Adjusting for inflation, that would be approximately 6609 USD today.

Most Expensive Hatsune Miku Figure

At the time of writing, the most expensive Hatsune Miku figure you can buy is the 1/4 scale Hatsune Miku (Nihon Ningyou ver.) made by FuRyu, with a theme inspired by traditional Japanese dolls. The current price hovers around 198,000 JPY (~1,336 USD).

However, the most expensive figures are likely going to be the super rare limited editions (1 to ~10 made) or custom ones. But we can't know their price until they are listed or someone makes an offer to the owner. So, if you had a chance to acquire a one-of-a-kind Hatsune Miku, like the Good Smile Color version, how much would you be willing to spend?

Sum Up

Hatsune Miku is undeniably one of the most iconic anime figures, and we eagerly anticipate future figure adaptations. The real question is could she possibly reach the 1000th Nendoroid? And leaving you with Hatsune Miku "Magical Mirai" 10th Anniversary Concert Trailer.
