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.

The original illustration

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).

Early Illustration of Nendoroid Racing Miku: 2013 version is Revealed

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:

Nendoroid Racing Miku 2011 Ver. Returns

GSC and GSR announce a re-run of Nendoroid Racing Miku 2010 version and Nendoroid Racing Miku 2011 version today. Both of them come under new names too (and a few minor differences).

Sadly, Nendoroid Racing Miku 2010 Version Returns will include the decals only, but not the Nendoroid car. Apart from that, she is pretty much the same as the first release.

The special racing version of Hatsune Miku, ‘Racing Miku’ is coming back again in her 2010 version. Decals for a Nendoroid car with the colors used in the 2010 racing season are also included. (Note the car itself is not included, only the decals.)

She is scheduled for December release, and the pre-order will start from 20:00 on the 20th September (today) until 20:00 on the 9th October at NicoNico Chokuhan.

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.

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.

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