I got my hands on the 2013 Racing Miku prototype!!

goodsmile company Mikatan's Blog English Version
Aesop-san, the man in charge of the project, told me that the optional parts were not quite ready yet, but I could still take the Nendoroid itself if I wanted…

Of course I want to!! Σ(゚∀゚ )

So today I’ll be taking a look at the just-made prototype of Nendoroid Racing Miku! It feels like it’s been ages since I last reviewed a prototype! ・(ノД`)・゜・。
Nendoroid Racking Miku: 2013 Ver.!

This year marks the 4th Racing Miku!

This year’s design is absolutely gorgeous!! The little jewel-like accessories all over her outfit are so pretty!! Plus look at the cute little ‘wings’ of her skirt which are all sculpted with transparent plastic to amazing effect!
This is the original key visual!!

The 2013 Racing Miku-san is designed and illustrated by saitom-san!
She looks so cute, and yet still so very elegant!!

I also really like the little bit of skin that can just be seen behind her tie! It really adds an extra element of sexiness to the illustration too! I also feel there is a little bit of a Gothic element to her outfit this time around.
This is how she looks from the back!

This really seems like it’s going to be one amazing product! The previous Racing Mikus have always been very detailed with regards to both sculpt and paintwork, but I think this one is on a whole new level!!

The paintwork on the little circle accessories all over her outfit are incredible! The circles on her skirt are only about 1mm in diameter!
A pose from another angle!

Everything in the illustration has been faithfully added onto the Nendoroid – from the crown on her head, the size and gradient of her twintails and even the silver paint on her outfit! It’s definitely a very high quality product that collectors will be proud to add to their collection!
This is how the optional parts will look!

These are still in the midst of being made, but Miku will come with both a car and an open/closed parasol!!

Special decals to stick onto the car to make it look like this season’s Miku car will also be included! Definitely a bonus for racing fans!
Plus her alternate expression part…
Is the smile seen on the car’s bonnet!

Just like the other optional parts, this is also still in the process of being made… but I really can’t wait to see it!!

Whenever I see this illustration I always feel like I should be able to jump into her arms for a hug… If a genie were to appear before me and give me one wish, I think mine would be to destroy the line between the anime and real world… :P
