Between 2008.12.25 and 2009.1.25, if you purchased certain Hitachi home appliances you may have been treated to a limited edition EMIEW 2 figure, created by mi2 Studio. The figure was 20cm (8″) tall and featured articulated joints for posing. The figure also had LEDs in its head and an alarm clock feature. Unfortunately, neither mi2 Studio nor Hitachi sells this figure directly. Mi2 Studio is located in Taiwan and produces a variety of vinyl figures.
Update: It appears this offer was only available in Taiwan, as Hitachi marketed some of their home appliances there with the help of the adorable robot. Watch a couple of commercials featuring EMIEW 2 after the break.
