Those who keep up with Vocaloid news may know that Gumi's or Megpoid's third birthday passed recently on June 25. It's no surprise that there are a lot of new Gumi products coming out in celebration of this event. One that really caught my eye was this lovely mini which is based on some cover art for a popular Gumi compilation album called  "EXIT TUNES PRESENTS GUMism from Megpoid"

I can't get enough of Gumi's design; the bright and cheerful colors really pop out at me. In particular her Kimono interests me with it's patterning, but every part of her looks really detailed for a super deformed figure. The only thing I wonder about is how one would attach Gumi  to her base while she is wearing her yellow coat. Still I can't wait to add her to my collection, myself.

Gumi is not available for pre-order yet, but is expected to cost around ¥3,500 We'll be sure to follow up on this story and post new information as we learn more.
