Vsinger has announced on their Weibo a mini figure design contest. This will be a collaboration between HobbyMax and Vsinger. The characters accepted in this contest will be Mo Qingxian, Zhiyu Moke, Luo Tianyi, YanHe, Yuezheng Ling, Yuezheng Longya and Stardust.
The mini figures will be roughly 5 cm, which means they are more akin to a nendoroid petite. They will be sold in packages of 8 which will include all 6 of Vsinger’s characters, Stardust and a bonus figure. The estimated cost of the package will be roughly 300 RMB or roughly $47 USD (price subject to change).
