Figure News: Vocaloid Pulips set to terrify or amuse
11 Jan 2011 02:12:41
Once in a while, a company releases something that just makes me ask why. Not even in the "oh, ha-ha, how silly" SSS kind of way, but just genuinely elicits a reaction of pure confusion. Like these.
Are you ready?
Don't say I didn't warn you.
...Actually, you might want to have this playing while you read this article...
Yup, ball-jointed-doll maker Pulip has obtained the Vocaloid license. But Miku isn't the only one getting Pulipized, no. Rin and Len are joining her!
I like how the Len looks more feminine than the Rin.
Now, I do find BJDs a little bit creepy, but I can see the appeal. It's basically a Hot Toys/RAH on steroids, when you think about it. But Pulips just plain creep me the hell out. Are they supposed to be cute? Is this like Nendoroids gone horribly, horribly wrong? But based on the fact that Miku's already sold out, it seems that at least some people think this is cute. Regardless, all three oftheseabominations are due out in April, for about 10000Y each.
Do any of you find Pulips (or BJDs in general) creepy, or am I just being delusional here? Sound off below!
