Mikatan has finally announced Nendoroid Petit Racing Miku: 2011 version officially today. Similar to the previous racing-themed Vocaloid Petits, this set also has Racing Rin and Luka to accompany Miku.

So … what’s inside? The winning trophy, a bottle of champagne, a pull-back car and the podium stage are included in the package. It looks pretty loaded there, doesn’t it? XD

Another expression and some optional body parts for Miku

Miku gets a special treatment here, as she will also come with an optional second expression as well as a couple of optional body parts (and umbrella). ^^

Kindly visit Mikatan’s blog to see more pics of this adorable set of Nendoroid Petits. Anyway, Mikatan mentioned that the set will be available for pre-order starting tomorrow. I hope this set is a regular release though. XD

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. XD

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

The Nendoroid rendetion of Japanese racer Kobayashi Kamui is finally available for pre-order starting today, after being teased several times previously. Nendoroid Kobayashi Kamui will bring along his helmet (both wearable and non-wearable) as well as the sponsors on his clothes and helmet. Here is the description from his official page:

Overtaking all his opponents, with Japan’s dream resting on his shoulders!
The F1 race driver with an impressive track record, Kamui Kobayashi, is becoming a Nendoroid!

Even when shrunk down to Nendoroid size, the coloring and details on his helmet and racing suit have all been faithfully preserved based on their originals – even the sponsors names are included on his outfit. He also comes with extra parts that allow you to display him either holding his helmet, or wearing it – however you’d prefer to see him!

He is priced at 3500 Yen, and scheduled to be released on late February 2012. Well, what do you think, Nendonesian? ^^

Nendoroid Racing Miku Spotted with F1 Sauber’s Kobayashi Kamui

Nendoroid Racing Miku: 2011 version is spotted to be having travelled together with Kobayashi Kamui, a popular Japanese Formula-1 racer. Yes, you can see the picture of them above, taken at Team Sauber‘s garage. Apparently, the cute Nendoroid caught a lot of attention there, as one of Team Sauber’s staff took a pic with her as well (photo after the break).

Well, I guess Good Smile Racing (GSR) is one of Kamui’s sponsor (or possibly the whole Team Sauber’s sponsor as well?), so it is only natural for him to have gotten hold of the GSR mascot for 2011. Takanori Aki (GSC president) was spotted to be visitting Kamui there as well.
