Nendoroid Racing Miku: 2013 version Gets Official Photo

Nendoroid Racing Miku: 2013 version

The first official press photo of Nendoroid Racing Miku: 2013 version has been posted by GSC. The new Racing costume looks great, although in my opinion, it kinda looks like a mix of Nendoroid Hatsune Miku: Append version and the previous Racing Miku Nendoroids.

Unfortunately, there are not photo of the optional expressions and accessories – the parasol and Nendoroid car – but I guess it should be available shortly.

For you who wanted to get her, you have to “apply” for select sponsorship package, which is available at Good Smile Racing Global website starting on March 21 (18:00 JST) until May 7 (12:00 JST).

Illustration of Nendoroid Racing Miku: 2013 version

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:

Apparently, Miku will bring along an all-new championship trophy in this re-sale version. However, there are no other changes aside from the new name prefix and the trophy.
