Max Factory is the company that produces figma models. Max Factory uses the Good Smile Company for distribution, which is why several model lines appear in both their and Good Smiles catalogs and many Max Factory models are listed as "Good Smile Company" instead of "Max Factory".
- The Hatsune Miku 1/7 figurine is an upcoming figurine by Max Factory. This image is based in one of the Hiro Kanzaki's artworks.
- 1/7 scale Hatsune Miku TYPE 2020 figurine based around Miku's appearance in the 7th Dragon video game.
figma models come with several faces, hands and props that can be changed around. They are posable and figma's joints are held in high standard for their posing abilities, which fake figma models often fail to recreate. figmas are, however, fragile and good care needs to be taken when handling them. They are not a toy and are built purely for collecting.
- Was a model produced for the Figma series by Max Factory. It was released September 10, 2008 (limited pre-release on August 31, 2008) at a cost of 2,800 yen. It was poseable and came with two negi.
- From the series Lucky Star, this figure is the character Kagami Hiragii dressed as Hatsune Miku. It is not Miku herself. As it was based on Kagami's body and not Miku's the mold that this figure is made from is not the same as previous Hatsune Miku figma series models. This figure is a result of Kagami's cosplay moment on Lucky Star, the moment proved to be so popular with the audience that this figure was produced as a outcome of the fans reaction.
- Released as the 100th figma model, this figure is of Miku's Append appearance from Hatsune Miku -Project DIVA- 2nd. Two additional faces match previous Append references more closely, with one face matching the Append figure and a second with closed eyes matching Miku's Append boxart.
