 This RAH has a very long title, Real Action Heroes Hatsune Miku Honey Whip Deluxe Ver. If I understand it correctly, there was a voting in 2015 which Hatsune Miku module should get a RAH:

The initial choice was Honey Whip (No.4 in the image), but in fact it got two releases, Standard Version and Deluxe pack which I'm reviewing now. the difference is that the Deluxe Version also has clothes and accessories for No.7, the Supreme Module (which I persistently call the World Is Mine, because that's where this dress first appeared). The price was crazy, but, as it happens to most RAHs, it declined dramatically in the aftermarket.

The box and its sides have the Honey Whip art:

Inside there are two layers for the two outfits and accessories. The hair should look different, too, so there's a special twintail set for each module:

I was hoping to get the red duvet for the World Is Mine variant, but alas. Instead, I found a double-sided manual on dressing the doll:

That's what she looks like when wearing her Honey Whip outfit:

Pretty as it is, this outfit has several drawbacks. The belt is made of plastic, so it's hard to remove the skirt. What's even worse, the clothes stain, and that's what I've predicted since I first saw her prototype:

To undress her, you have to remove her hands and feet. Honey Whip version is wearing boots, so she has pegs like Bratz dolls, while Supreme has "real" feet:

This is what the Supreme module looks like. I've tried to picture her next to the World Is Mine figure, but I think I've failed:

The interchangeable twintails are pretty, although the second set is long and very heavy, so it tends to pop out all the time:

Miku has interchangeable hands, mostly for the Honey Whip module, but one set with green nail varnish is for Supreme. She also has as many as four faceplates! I have to say they're a little tough to apply, RAH Levi's magnet faceplates are much more convenient:

Levi disapproves!
