Nendoroid Racing Miku: 2011 version

Since 2009, Good Smile Company (GSC) and its racing team Good Smile Racing (GSR) have been annually releasing a racing-themed Hatsune Miku, including its Nendoroid version.

Last year, Nendoroid Racing Miku: 2011 version was released on October bearing a brand new design for Miku’s racing queen outfit, which was somehow seen as controversial for some fans of the virtual diva.

Well then, enough with the introduction, let’s go directly to the review, shall we? ^^

Nendoroid Super Sonico: Tiger Parka version (design)

Well well well … what do we have here? NitroPlus‘ mascot Super Sonico is going to be made into Nendoroid?

Yep, it seems so, as the design for Nendoroid Super Sonico: Tiger Parka version was displayed in GSC’s latest NicoNico broadcast AND in her own official product page as well!

Here is what it says in the product page: (Google-Translated – may not be accurate)

Collaboration of Sonico and Nendoroid!
From the popular mascot of NitroPlus comes Nendoroid Super Sonico in Tiger Parka version. Obviously there are optional parts available, such as her favorite eletric guitar. As a musician, gravure model, and game character, she is really cute in Nendoroid form.

Nendoroid Super Sonico: Tiger Parka version is scheduled for October release with a price tag of 3500 Yen.

Pre-order will be available at GSC Online Shop starting today, April 28, 10:00 (JST) until May 31, 21:00 (JST). Unfortunately, it seems that the reservation will only be available for Japanese residents. XD

Apparently, this Nendoroid will be used as a test for GSC’s sculptors, as mentioned by Mikatan:

The topic at hand will be putting sculptors to the test …
Making a prototype in two days!!
Basically, the aim is to complete a prototype with painting on a nearly impossible schedule … and quite a few sculptors have risen to the challenge!!

You can see further info about the test in Mikatan’s blog.

Well, what do you think, Nendonesian? ^^

(Thanks for the news tip, Nurrafi Ihsan!)
