Nendoroid Makise Kurisu and Shiina Mayuri: Cheerful version

Originally scheduled for January release, the Cheerful JAPAN Nendoroid set from Steins;Gate is pushed back to February 8. Well, that date is about a week away, and Mikatan decided to put up a quick review of Nendoroid Makise Kurisu and Shiina Mayuri: Cheerful version so that we could see what will we get when it arrives to our desk later. ^^

The parts and accessories

The parts and accessories

Sadly, there are not that many parts and accessories inside – other than two pair of pompoms, a giant support flag, and a megaphone. On the positive side, there are a lot of optional body parts included in the package. ^^

Well then, what do you think, Nendonesian? ^^

Yep, Vocaloid2‘s Megurine Luka was officially released on this day, three years ago. As a fan of her, I thought I should post a special greeting for Luka-san, just as I did last year. ^^

So … why am I using Racing-themed outfits there? Well, I simply want to celebrate her Racing Petit announcement as well as her birthday. ๐Ÿ˜„

Nendoroid Petit Racing Vocaloid 2011 Set is Announced in Latest NicoNico Live Broadcast by GSC

Nendoroid Petit Racing Vocaloid 2011 set

Since 2009, Good Smile Company Racing has always produced a Racing-themed Nendoroid Hatsune Miku and a set of Nendoroid Petit Racing Vocaloid – consisting of Hatsune Miku, Kagamine Rin, and Megurine Luka in racing-themed outfit. When they announced Nendoroid Racing Miku: 2011 version, I assumed that the Petit version would have followed shortly after. I was mistaken, as they did not announce anything at all regarding the Petit in 2011.

Well, it seems that GSR were waiting for the GT victory to announce the good news. Yep, Nendoroid Petit Racing Vocaloid 2011 Set was finally announced today yesterday, at GSC’s live NicoNico broadcast. The set consists of Nendoroid Petit Hatsune Miku, Kagamine Rin, and Megurine Luka, all in their 2011 Racing outfit. The winning trophy, a bottle of champagne, and the Petit-sized Miku BMW are also included in the package, as well as second expression for Miku and the usual umbrella(s). I have no idea whether the podium stage will also be included or not, though. ๐Ÿ˜„

More pics of other Nendoroid displayed at the broadcast can be seen after the break. ^^
