As promised by Mikatan last week, she showed the 11th characters in the Nendoroid Petite: Hatsune Miku Selection. Yes, it is another variant of Hatsune Miku that is usually called Hatsune Miku: Mikurisutaru.
Similar to the Deep Sea Girl version, this one is also a fan-made character that features in the 3DS game Hatsune Miku and Future Stars: Project Mirai.
The 12th character is set to be revealed next Thursday. I have a hunch that Mikudayo will be featuring as the final Petite there. (￣▽￣)
In any case, Mikatan also explains some stuff regarding product releases, so kindly visit her blog for a bit more insight.

Yes, we have seen Nendoroid Petite: Hatsune Miku Selection previously at the most recent Winter WonFes and now they are getting a proper preview by Mikatan.
This Petite set consists of:
- Six main characters, i.e MEIKO, KAITO, Hatsune Miku, Kagamine Rin, Kagamine Len, and Megurine Luka – all in their respective default costumes
- Three fan-made characters, i.e Kagamine Len: Servant of Evil, Kagamine Rin: Daughter of Evil, and Megurine Luka: Akahitoha
- Hatsune Miku: Deep Sea Girl
- Two other characters have not been revealed yet.
Here is how the Deep Sea Girl Miku looks like in her Petite version:
Mikatan said that she will reveal the remaining characters every Friday though. XD
Anyway, the Petite set will come as either 500 Yen for each Petite, or a box of 12 Petites, priced at around 6000 Yen.

Mamitan, the Good Smile Company USA staff posted a quick snap of Nendoroid Sakura Miku, packaged nicely in her pink colored, sakura themed box. Looks very lovely, doesn’t it? XD
On the other hand, GSC has just sent e-mails to the customers who has secured the pre-orders for the upcoming Nendoroid Sakura Miku from Good Smile Online Shop. The mail basically tells us that the shipment will begin on March 6th.
(Thanks for the news tip, Nicole Wagner and Matthew McCormick!)

Hatsune Miku in racing-themed outfits or widely known as Racing Miku, gets a new design annually. This year’s design was revealed at the Winter WonFes 2013 (or the NicoNico broadcast, for non-Japan residents).
Obviously, it is also followed by the Nendoroid design, albeit merely as an early illustration rather than full-fledged design, as you can see in the pic above.
Here is the original illustration for comparison sake:
Well, what do you think about the
design early illustration of Nendoroid Racing Miku: 2013 version, Nendonesian? ^^
Did you see the last pic in our review of Nendoroid Hatsune Miku: Yukata version? Yes, that custom Nendoroid Yukata Miku wearing the yellow-ish yukata can now be examined in a closer look, as the maker posted the pics recently.
Yep, Nendoroid Snow Miku: Strawberry White Kimono version finally gets a proper official announcement by GSC – although the official pics are not new for us.
Snow Miku is visiting again this Winter, this time in a white kimono!
Designs for the 2013 Snow Miku were submitted by fans to the piapro website and then a winner was chosen by viewers during a NicoNico Live Broadcast. The winning entry was an illustration of Snow Miku with a slightly more mature air, wearing a beautiful white kimono – which has now been transformed into a Nendoroid!
Her cotton veil can be removed, and she comes with two different hair styles to choose from when it is removed – you can display her with either her trademark twintails, or instead with her hair tied up. Sitting parts are also included for a more relaxed pose, and she also comes a number of items for a snowy day, including an umbrella, a toothpick and a snow bunny.
The snow lady is priced at 4000 Yen and scheduled for February (available at WHL4U 17 booth at WonFes and several other venues) and June for pre-order from Good Smile Online Shop.
Details regarding the availability can be read in the official product page.
Well, are you going to get this cute and lovely lady, Nendonesian? ^^
Technically, there are two edition of Nendoroid Hatsune Miku: Yukata version. The first edition was released during the 39′s CARAVAN Hakkeijima event back then on September 2012, while the other one was sold through web pre-order and scheduled for this month’s release.
Note: This review is written based on the event edition of Nendoroid Hatsune Miku: Yukata version.
The new staff at GSC’s web team visited their factory in China to take a look at the production of Nendoroid Sakura Miku (and probably Nendoroid Snow Miku: Ichigo Shiromuku version too!).
Here is their report for that trip.
