Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)
While playing racing games, I pretty much never touch the brake button… whether it’s Initial D or Mario Cart, I’m always going full throttle! Which also of course means I always lose a huge amount of time on turns! (；´∀｀)
Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at Good Smile Racing’s…
|The official character of the Hatsune Miku GT Project: Racing Miku! The 2014 version of her was drawn by the up-and-coming illustrator Oguchi with a costume design by Shigeto Koyama, who has been involved in art direction of a number of popular anime series – and that unique design has been transformed into a figma for sponsors of the team to enjoy!
Planning Cooperation: Max Factory
The goddess that guided the GSR team’s Z4 back into the top of the overall ranking by two points after last weekend’s race!
I managed to get get hold of the painted prototype of her to give a quick preview on the blog! There is currently only one photo on the GSC site, so you’ll be able to see a whole lot more from this blog!! Including a first look at some of the optional parts! ( -ﾉｪ-)
The very first photo above was of course taken in the classic pose of the original illustration! The same pose that Racing Miku 2014 Ver. is posed in! Even the awesome round mechanical parts are included!
However she also comes with more simple parts instead of the round parts – these can also be seen on the GSC Site Product Page at the moment! ♪
In other words…
You can easily switch between the two different attachments! (｀・ω・´)
Simply pick the one you think suits her better!
Moving on, let’s see how she looks from the back! ♡
The lovely coiling look of her twintails has been kept beautifully!
The very tips of the hair are slightly transparent to lovely effect!
The outfit also shows off her back and bottom!
She is a rather slender Miku-san, but her bottom still has some meat to it! *nom nom* (๑´ڡ`๑)
By the way, along with the determined expression you see above, she also comes with this adorable smiling expression! ♡
I-It’s so cute!! (*´Д`)
It also makes her look a little more youthful and innocent! ♪
It’s nice to have expressions that change the feeling of a character so much – it allows for a much broader set of possible poses!
Another thing to note is just how faithfully her outfit has been preserved in figma form!
The line coming up from her belly button too! ＜◯＞＜◯＞
By the way, the outfit around the stomach area is made from a soft material for easy posing!
Hmm… Miku also seems to be holding something here! What is it…?
A Team Flag!! (｀・ω・´)
She looks so happy and proud to be holding it! (´□｀｡)
Plus there is another optional part that simply had to be included…
Her Racing Parasol!
She comes with both a closed and open version, allowing for a variety of different options! ♪
Special hand parts are also included to hold the parasol, and are included for the left and right hands! Which means you can even pose her holding both the open and closed parasols at the same time! ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ
The photo above is taken in the image of the Z4 speeding past Miku-san, causing a rush of wind that blows her twintails over to the side! ♡
I look forward to see that happens in the next race!! ((o(´∀｀)o))ﾜｸﾜｸ
GSR Race Schedule: http://www.goodsmileracing.com/en/race/raceschedule2014/
Enjoy both the cool and cute sides of Racing Miku!♪
The figma is included as a special item for those who become sponsors for the Good Smile Racing team! It won’t be available anywhere else or as a standard product!
Please see the official sponsorship page for more info:
Applications for the higher figma course sponsors close on the 10th September 2014! Don’t miss out!
However, the 7000JPY course which still includes the figma will be open until the 27th October, so you still have awhile to grab the figma! Either way, make sure you don’t forget! (｀・ω・´)
