So the Nico Nico Live Broadcast by GSC dubbed as “Hatsune Miku no Jikan” has been broadcasted earlier. There are a couple of Miku stuff there, but we are going to focus to the Nendoroid Snow Miku: 2014 version first.
As you may have known, the live broadcast also served as an election to choose the base design for next year’s Nendoroid Snow Miku. In the end of the live election session, design #8 got the most votes there.
Wearing the witch hat and the cape/coat with crystal staff, she looks pretty
plain classic to my taste, but I guess the voters might see her with “simple is the best” in mind. XD
Meanwhile, the election also voted for the best pet to accompany the next year’s snow diva. The design getting the most votes is design #7 – the rabbit fairy. XD
Well, what do you think about the design, Nendonesian?
Since 2012, it is a kind of tradition to hold an annual contest to determine Nendoroid Snow Miku’s design with a defined theme. Yep, Nendoroid Snow Miku: Fluffy Coat version and Strawberry White Kimono version are products of that contest in the last two years.
Fast-forward to today, and we are facing the contest run for Nendoroid Snow Miku: 2014 version and this year’s theme is magical girl and pet – it certainly reminds me of that particular magical girl and her contact-obsessed companion. XD
Well, what do you think, Nendonesian?
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).
The annual Racing Miku design has been announced during the last Winter WonFes, and Nendoroid Racing Miku: 2013 version is available for pre-order today.

GSC has setup a campaign to promote their newly announced Nendoroid Petite: Hatsune Miku Selection a few days ago, that says:
We are currently running a special Twitter campaign as a part of the recent announcement for Nendoroid Petite: Hatsune Miku Selection. If we manage to reach 3939 tweets that include the #nenpuchi_mikusele hashtag, a special set of Twitter skins including a background, icon and header image will be released for everyone to enjoy!
… and yesterday, it has reached more than 2000 tweets, so GSC has decided to release 3 out of 6 Twitter themes (or skins, as they called it) to be used to decorate your Twitter profile page.
Well, what are you waiting for? Head directly to the source page to download the cute Twitter themes.
P.S: We chose the Aku no Musume (Daughter of Evil) theme for our Twitter profile. XD
It’s March 9th (3/9) today, so it’s time to say … Happy Miku Day! ヽ(´▽`)/
Anyway, Nendoroid Petite: Hatsune Miku Selection has been available for pre-order since yesterday, and as expected, it packs several surprises for us.
