Racing Miku 2016 Ver.: Part 1

Today’s Main Feature!

Hello everyone!! Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

Today I’m going to be taking a look at…

Racing Miku 2016 Ver.!♡

The official character of the Hatsune Miku GT Project ‘Racing Miku’ has been transformed into a 1/8th scale figure based on her 2016 design! The illustration by popular animator Mai Yoneyama has been faithfully captured in figure form for fans to enjoy in their collection!

Racing Miku is posed taking a break at the race track with her parasol opened out as she sits on a pile of tires with an adorable smile! She is posed together with the colorful ‘Weight-chan’ characters that were created based on the handicap weights added to GT cars!

The official character of the 2016 Hatsune Miku GT Project!

The long awaited figure of the 2016 version of Racing Miku is finally ready to go up for preorder, with orders opening up tomorrow! ★

The original design was based on the ideas of ‘Victory’ and the ‘Phoenix’ which created a lovely colorful outfit that also has a bit of a fiery theme to the colors! The cute, innocent smile of this year’s Racing Miku also always stands out in her illustrations! ♡

The figure is based on this illustration by Mai Yoneyama!

A relaxed, everyday kind-of scene with Racing Miku-san sitting on a pile of tires together with the cute and colorful ‘Weight-chan’ characters! (。・ω・)ノ゙

The Weight-chans are characters based on the handicap weights put on the leading cars in the SUPER GT! They were designed by Shigeto Koyama and each of their expressions have been captured so perfectly on the figure!

– 5kg –

– 30 kg –

– 100 kg –

While the front view of Miku gives her an innocent, playful appearance with her adorable smile…

The back has a more mature appearance with rather sexy curves!

▲ That curve from her back down to her bottom… so perfect!

The figure allows fans to enjoy both her adorable smile as well as her beautiful body – all tied together beautifully with a lovely outfit and base!ヽ(●´Д`●)ノ

She is posed balancing her parasol on her shoulder with such a youthful and playful look! The area around her inner thigh’s that show off a bit of skin  make her look so… defenceless!!

▲ They’re not panties so there is no reason to be embarrassed!

I decided to get some comments from the head planner Hamako regarding the highlights of the figure, and will be taking an even closer look at the figure on tomorrow’s blog together with her comments so be sure to check back tomorrow as well! ε=(。・д・。)

By the way, the final race for the season is coming up this weekend!☆

Finally a quick spin!

▲ Miku herself is amazing, but the detail on the parasol and base is also fantastic! ♪

The fact that her eyes are posed looking at Weight-chan and not at you makes it seem like you are peeking into Racing Miku-san’s break time and she hasn’t even notice you are there yet! It’s strangely exciting! (/ω\)

It’s a little diorama that captures the scene beautifully! Be sure to add this adorable Racing Miku to your collection! 

Racing Miku 2016 Ver.!

She’ll be up for preorder from tomorrow!

Keep your eyes on the Good Smile Company Site for more details! ♪

Racing Miku: 2015 Ver.

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

I can already feel my hay-fever starting to act up… perhaps  because this Winter has been rather warm? Or maybe it’s just a cold…?

Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at…

Racing Miku: 2015 Ver.!♥︎

The 2015 design of Racing Miku, the official character of the Hatsune Miku GT Project, is being made into a 1/8th scale figure!

The figure’s design is based on Taiki’s illustration of Racing Miku as a ‘Princess Knight’, and has faithfully preserved all the details of the original illustration. The intricate outfit and dynamic pose all come together to create a cheerful Racing Miku that is sure to add new charm to any fan’s collection!

The songstress of the racing circuit!♡ 

The scale figure of last year’s Racing Miku which went up for preorder just at the end of last month! Her adorable smile captures such a lovely moment! The fluttering of the flag and her twin-tails also add a nice dynamic effect to the figure, and the cute outfit has also been sculpted in lovely detail!! ♪

I managed to grab the painted prototype for a quick review!

This is how she looks from the back!

Take a look at the translucent appearance of her twintails! 

They are beautifully painted to give a nice gradient that slowly becomes more translucent toward to bottom! They also have a nice volume to them that, together with the flag, give the figure a  rather impressive size!!

She is posed standing with one foot up in the air for a rather simple pose, but the dynamic elements of the figure make it all the more eye-catching! ♪

The stand features a stylish design based on Miku’s hair color and standard hair accessories!

The pink is also used in some other areas! 〜(*´Д`)=з

Take a close look at her lovely thighs!

I’m sure you can see the pink area!

The curves from her bottom down along the thighs is such a treat for the eyes!

By the way… Miku-san is wearing a tutu with a leopard, so you’re not seeing panties!! These photos are not showing too much!! Really!! (*゚ー゚*)

△ You get a really nice feel for the fluttering of the flag from this angle!

Anyway, the 2015 Racing Miku’s design was based on a ‘Princess Knight’! You can see the ‘Princess’ part in her expression, the frills on her outfit and of course the tiara…

If you’re looking for the ‘Knight’ part…

The gauntlets and various other parts of her outfit are modelled off knightly armor! (。・ω・)ノ゙

The golden lining also gives a very noble aspect to the design which fits both the princess and knight sides of the design! The little neck-tie accessory is included on the design as a little homage to the original Miku design!

By the way, you can take a look through all the previous Racing Miku designs over on this page! ♡

Keep this adorable smile all to yourself! Add the 2015 Racing Miku to your collection!

Nendoroid Racing Miku: 2015 Ver.

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

I ate way too much popcorn and am now regretting it. It would seem that too much caramel popcorn, while delicious, is not good for one’s stomach…

Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at…

Nendoroid Racing Miku: 2015 Ver.!

The official character of the Hatsune Miku GT Project ‘Racing Miku’ is back again in Nendoroid form, this time in her 2015 ver. outfit! The Nendoroid is based on the illustration by Taiki, a design which gives Racing Miku a knightly appearance, ready to charge into first place! Optional parts include a race queen’s parasol, as well as a Nendoroid-sized car that Miku can actually ride inside!

Ooooooohhhh! (●´ω`●)

The Racing Knight Princess is joining the Nendoroid series! The GSR Team managed to take the place of champions in last year’s SUPER GT, and this Miku shows they are confident they can take it again! Her outfit has a knightly appearance to it, but also has some cute frills to show off her feminine side too! ♪


△ Her back shows off lots of skin too!

Her twin-tails are painted with a blue to yellow gradient, and as they move into the yellow area the plastic also becomes more and more translucent for a lovely effect! As you’d expect, the twin-tails also include Nendoroid joints allowing you to match them with your poses with ease! (σ・∀・)σ

You can also recreate this pose! ♡

Nendoroid Racing Miku comes with her so-called ‘Offensive Parasol‘ and ‘Defensive Keyboard‘!

Her knightly race queen items!! (`・ω・´) 

This is of course the pose from one of the main visuals, and I can just image her shouting “We’re aiming for the top once more!” whenever I see this pose!

Another thing I want to point out, is that this year’s Racing Miku comes with fully articulated arms! ★

This allows you to pose her holding all sorts of things at various angles, and also helps with creating awesome poses! (。・ω・)ノ゙

For example… 

She can even be posed with a large flag like this! ♥︎

The flag design is adorned with a coat of arms to further the knight-like appearance with crowns, a horse and of course the Good Smile Mark! She comes with two expressions – one looking confidently straight ahead and a second smile with a more sideward gaze! (●´ω`●)

Plus as I’m sure you noticed in the first photo…

A Nendoroid Car is also included! ♪


△ A design that includes Miku color!

She also comes with a shift body that lets you pose her driving the car! ♪


△ The driving body is only the upper body.

Of course you can then make use of the articulation in the twin-tails to really give the electronic racing diva some speed!

△ The articulated arms also mean she can easily hold the steering wheel!

The first race in this year’s SUPER GT has ended with the team placing 5th! Not a bad start, but the next face at Fuji Speedway on the 2nd-3rd May will be the next step! There are still 7 races to go to get into the lead!! (`・ω・´)ゞ

GOODSMILE RACING & TeamUKYO are aiming to become champions two years in a row!! A big thank you to everyone who has supported the team!!

The goddess of victory back again!
