Note: This news is a week old, but I guess it is better to post it late rather than never, right? XD
In order to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Tamiya’s 4WD, GSC has teamed up with Tamiya and Dengeki Hobby Magazine to create a special joint product known as Nendoroid Petit x Mini 4WD. The collaboration project was announced at 51st Shizuoka Hobby Show (May 17th – 18th).
The announced line-ups are:
Nendoroid Petit Racing Miku 2012 ver. x Astute Open Top
Fate/stay night’s Nendoroid Petit Saber x Super Saber Open Top
Toaru Kagaku no Railgun’s Nendoroid Petit Mikoto Misaka x Thundershot Open Top
Yep, as you can see in the pic above, the announced Nendoroid Petits will be riding their own special mini 4WD as mentioned in the list.
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.
