  • I have been an absolute menace on Twitter this weekend. I'm sorry for the Kaito spam, it's over now... 😭😂
    I'M RLLY GLAD I SAVED MY MONEY NOW. FRIEND IN JAPAN FOUND 2 PHYSICAL GACHAPOID V2s AND BOUGHT ONE FOR BOTH OF US
    I'mma pay him back and then some for the help. The physicals in-store were only like $70 :D
    I guess I should try to find a V1 Meiko for less than $200 someday eventually just to polish off the V1 collection >.>
    Lemme know if you see one (and aren't gonna buy it yourself??)

    That's fair!! I stand by V1 being more user friendly than V5 and actually not that hard to use, but I've seen you commenting on how V4 isn't as easy as Synth V etc, so I don't know that you and V1 would click LOL

    Thank you! :)

    EDIT: Doesn't help that Meiko V1 is pretty metallic and a little muffly, you gotta have the patience to make her sound good :S

    From a Yahoo Auctions, same as my V3! (Although V3 was unused, according to its description). I don't remember if I used Buyee or FromJapan though, but same idea.
    How legally dubious would it be to commission someone to make mockup boxarts anyway? Higher quality Gachapoid V3, or merging Azuki and Matcha into one box a la Bruno y Clara, etc. Like since they're taking official art without "permission" technically, and I'm paying them to arrange it differently... but also if it was personal use instead of redistributed... I've always wondered! :0

    That makes sense then! Thanks guys!!

    As long as it's strictly for personal use there shouldn't be a problem (unless some character has a really strict policy with copyright), it might be a slightly gray area though, depends on the copyright applied to the character and/or local copyright laws. Some artists would probably refuse I would imagine. As long as you don't sell it on or otherwise redistribute it, all should be safe. Finnish copyright law would prohibit even posting it online without rightsholder's permission, but this depends again on the policy of the rightsholder (Miku's official art is ok for noncommercial use for example).

    OK I decided I don't need Gachapoid rn bc there's plenty of listings for him on Amazon for like $130 if I want him later. My gift to myself after I got paid, did my taxes, and did my homework/got good grades on quizzes? Found a Gumi ENG V3 starter pack for $125 on Amazon JP. Now I have all the editors :D

    Thank you!! I was shocked it was so cheap, since she's close to $200 on regular Amazon, and it was just the one listing that was that cheap, and being sold by Amazon JP themselves instead of a third party. And she was originally 13600 yen but once I put her in my cart she became 12200 yen + 1000 for shipping, so it was really impossible to say no, really... believe me, it was... 😂

    Like in V2 they had high hopes for him and then in V3 Internet was like "Yes! We love all our Vocaloids! Gakupo, Gumi and..." *looks at smudged writing on hand* "...Gaikeepoid"

    To be fair, he literally only got a V3 because his licencor ponied up money for it at the last second. He's been dead last in the NND JP Vocaloid rankings almost every year since he was introduced (except for like 2 years where it was Chika)

    His V3 box does look like it was made in like 5 minutes though

    Poor buddy. I mean I get WHY but y'know

    Def shoulda taken a little more time on the mockup for the V3 box though alsfkjsdf 😂
    An overwhelming urge to draw adult Ryuto...

    See, if THAT was the design he'd be released with, more people would've loved him.

    I would pay GOOD money for an Akikoloid code ngl. But Lawson has abandoned their daughter 😭
    I always drew Lola with a natural 'fro since I draw Leon with locs and wanted some variation. But since Amy's hair seems simliar (shapewise, def looks like a different texture) and Amy has the earrings I always gave Lola, I wonder if I should change my Lola's hairstyle. Just to braids or smth maybe... (insp @peaches2217 )

    Got into a mini bidding war over that Gumi V2. She didn't end up getting super expensive, but I didn't want to deal with it over something that wasn't guaranteed to work, so I let her go. Saving money for now!!

    Yep! I'm going to wait until my tax return comes in and then consider getting Gumi ENG instead anyway. Or there's possibly a lead on a Gachapoid V2 (unconfirmed but I'm waiting to hear back on that--) so I'll just wait and see for now :)
    I did my taxes and am getting back more than expected. Should I buy that Gumi ENG when it comes in... 👀

    Worst part is I can get a starter pack for less than $200 if I wanted, so that'd give me V3 and I'd have all the editors. I SHOULDN'T but damn if I don't want to tho...

    Euhhh on second thought I ought to stash it away and use it as the foundations for me justifying the AHSloid sale this winter--
    I bet the rarest (released) Vocaloid rn is Gachapoid V2 physicals.
    Or maybe Cyva V4 physicals.

    Yeah, here's diva. She's three times as much now, but she's still around.

    Oh, Cyman never had a boxed release. And selling download loids isn't any more illegal than selling boxed loids -- ie, Yamaha doesn't want you to do either, but nobody really cares anymore.

    I hope you can find a Cyman V4 someone's selling someday Peaches :(

    Alright I have emailed Crypton about my Kagamines. I included their codes, the error message that I get from both the JP and ENG registration sites, and picture proof of their box, their codes, that they're in my Deactivation Tool, and screenshots of the errors. I condensed these into 3 pictures and included either a notepad or a scratch paper with my email on it in all 3, so it's obvious they're from me and not some picture online. Here's hoping!!
    Still keeping an eye on that Gumi auction to see if it suddenly skyrockets. If not I think I'll try it! $21 isn't a bad gamble, and if nothing else I'll have a nice box :)
    Well I found a Gumi V2 auction for $21 but they said they don't know if the code works, and in that case who knows if she's already registered (so you couldn't get an import code from Internet...)

    Haha I suppose sellers don't bother trying to install it first, or have any clue about the Deactivation Tool that would keep the product sell-able if it does end up working lol. It is what it is! I'll keep an eye on it and decide if it's worth a shot or not, since she's pretty cheap rn!
