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.

A Nendoroid of the 2013 Racing Miku, based on the original illustration and design by saitom!
As usual, a Nendoroid car, a parasol, and an exclusive decal sheet are included in the package.
Officially, the only available courses for international sponsor application at the Good Smile Racing Personal Sponsor website are Course A (10000 Yen) and Course B (30000 Yen) – those are the only packages that includes the Nendoroid. The scheduled release date for the sponsor package is October 2013.
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.
Vocaloid melody in cute, petite size! ♪
The cute and small Nendoroid Petite action figure series is getting a brand new set of Vocaloid figures named the ‘Hatsune Miku Selection’!
The six official characters are all included in brand new poses, and a number of fanmade characters are also included such as the winner of PIAPRO’s Gem Outfit competition, ‘Mikurisutaru’, as well as some characters from popular songs on NicoNico Douga such as ‘Daughter of Evil’, ‘Servant of Evil’, ‘Deep Sea Girl’ , ‘Akahitoha’ and ‘Romeo and Cinderella’. There are a total of 12 different characters to collect and enjoy! ♪
Go past the break to find out the special campaign for this Nendoroid Petite set.
The 12th character in the Nendoroid Petite: Hatsune Miku Selection has been revealed! … and nope, Mikudayo does not make it into the 12 Petite selections. XD
Anyway, the final Petite in the set is Nendoroid Petite Hatsune Miku: Romeo & Cinderella, which is based on the illustration by nezuki.
Nendoroid Sakura Miku will be released by the end of this week, so naturally, Mikatan is doing a quick review of this Nendoroid.
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.

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
