Our recently-reviewed Nendoroid Racing Miku: 2011 version gets a cheap knockoff version of her popping up on a popular auction site. Wha-!? XD
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? ^^
UPDATE: The itasha‘s decals have been installed. See the pics below. XD
Nendoroid Racing Miku: 2012 version‘s pre-order has already started last month, and we have already seen both her uncolored and colored prototype. Finally, she received a preview photo session treatment by Mikatan today.
Nothing new there, as we have already seen most of them on the official pics, but it is still nice to see her from different angles.
Well then, go directly to Mikatan’s blog for more info as well as more pics.

The upcoming Nendoroid Nanasaki Ai from Amagami SS has her box displayed in GSC x Tetsujin Cafe earlier today. The blue-ish theme mixed with some snow flakes patterns are visible in the box’s cover.
Meanwhile, there are also other Nendoroid and box that were spotted in the cafe, which you can see after the break. XD
The pics for minified Race Queen diva have been teased to us several times previously, albeit in the low-res screencaps off NicoNico live broadcast.
Well, now you can see the official pics in Nendoroid Racing Miku: 2012 version‘s official page, thanks to some updates by GSC.
So you have been waiting for the fully-painted Nendoroid Racing Miku: 2012 version before deciding to pre-order the sponsorship package?
Well, it seems that your wait is finally over, as the colored prototype of the 2012 Vocaloid racing queen in Nendoroid form has finally been revealed in Good Smile Racing’s latest Nico Nico live broadcast.

So … you are still considering whether or not to pre-order the upcoming Nendoroid Racing Miku: 2012 version? Well, this shot of the Nendoroid’s prototype might be of some help for you. ^^
IMHO, the prototype is really close to the original design, plus that expression of her looks really cute! I cannot wait to see how she will look like after she is completely colored. XD
So … you are considering which package are you going to take? Well, sorry, I cannot help you with that one. ^^;
Note: If you have been following our Facebook or Twitter, you should have known that I was gone for a vacation last week. That is (partially) why I did not post news updates back then. There were some issues with the server as well, and it also prevents me to update the blog. Sorry about that, Nendonesian. m(_ _)m
Anyway, the first news is about Nendoroid Racing Miku: 2012 version who has been available for pre-order since March 21 at 18:00 until May 7 at 22:00. Similar to the previous Racing Miku editions, this one also come in several personal sponsor packages: 7000, 10000, 30000, and 50000 Yen.
Although there are no real Nendoroid pics yet, the official product spec mentions that she will bring along her usual RQ stuff, including Nendoroid CAR1, RQ Parasol (open/closed) and exclusive decals.
She will be available for pre-order at Nico Nico Chokuhan and scheduled for October release. ^^
Nendoroid Amagi Yukiko from Persona 4 (TV series) is also available for pre-order since last week. Here is her official description:
The elegant girl with an unexpected whimsical side.
From the anime series ‘Persona 4’ comes a Nendoroid of the elegant and popular Yukiko Amagi.
She comes with three different expressions, as well as various extra parts from the series such as her glasses and a folding fan which let you pose her summoning her Persona. She also comes with parts that allow you to pose her showing her whimsical side that she normally tries to hide – holding her stomach while bursting out in laughter. She even comes with the fake glasses from episode four of the anime series!
Yukiko is going to be released on July and priced at 3500 Yen. You might want to take a look at Mikatan’s blog post if you are considering to secure a pre-order of this cute Nendoroid. ^^
Well, which one of those are you going to pre-order, Nendonesian? ^^
