Replica costume piece comes wired for nostalgic sound
If you're a fan of Digimon, this reproduction of Mimi's trademark hat will bring you joy... and also make you cry. Because not only is it wired to keep the brim up, it's wired for sound from the season 1 finale.
The new Premium Bandai offering is a faithful recreation of the DigiDestined's ten-gallon hat, in her signature pink. Plus, it's large enough for grown-ups to wear. Because being a DigiDestined never goes out of style.
Inside the hat is a pocket with a removable speaker, which plays the teary farewell between Mimi and Palmon when activated (along with the version of "Butter-Fly" featured in that episode).
The hat and speaker 12,960 for the set, and are currently available for preorder. Orders are expected to ship out in December of this year.
