MIKU EVERYWHERE ! (as what majority would say lol)
My second Hatsune Miku nendoroid since the beginning of time lol I said before that I wasn’t much of a vocaloid fan but when Good Smile released last year that Rabbit Yukine Snow Miku, I thought that this ain’t bad at all (so she became my first Miku nendo). And what can I say, of the same year another good looking nendoroid from Miku appeared. I used to feel like (and still) that Miku is everywhere in every single season, Snow version, Halloween, Racing, School or whatever else out there which makes (me) a little turned off. But I also thought that maybe someday there could be some releases that will actually make me want her. (And oh btw I actually like her 2014 Halloween version as well)
This Racing Miku 2014 was illustrated by the artist Oguchi with design direction by Shigeto Koyama, famous for his work in various anime series including Kill la Kill! (No wonder I like this Racing version of her so much like seriously !) Her box is pretty colorful and she also comes with various accessories like Trophies (2 of them for 1st and 2nd Victory), smiling face plate, extra racing wheels (on her both side), that belt something on her waist with pink wires (sorry IDK exactly what’s that called), and extra arms and legs. She also has an overdrive like background, which I think would look good with her append version figure. And maybe that explains why the design on that background has the same touch and feels with my Kill la Kill prize figures.One thing that I find really attractive with this Miku Racing version is her hair! (I told you my fetish with haaaaairs) Its all curled up cutely. Furthermore, her eyes is looking good in here. So vibrant! This 2014 version also feels more original than the previous releases. Though I must say that she also has a very limited pose in this one. Both her main and extra arms looks exactly the same only that the extra has holes at the back of the palm where the pink wires will be inserted. All over, her racing outfit, for all I know are names of figure companies and events? And Good Smile Company just perfectly right in her arms, chest part and a logo by her headphones.Pretty gradient on her racing boots! Now onto chainging gears! Well (for me though), it was a slight pain inserting the pink wires in the holes at the back of her hand. Maybe because my own hands were not that stable enough lol but otherwise no other problem noted. The pink wires by the way is very flexible so you won’t worry that you’ll break the thing.This reminds me so much of Motoko Kusanagi, wires attached to her nape. (But that sounded painful at the same time on a human’s point of view *chills)
Miku’s hair is smoothly movable. Getting the hair up presents the impression of an “overdrive” feel ..and probably when the race is over, when all the acceleration stops, you can just put her hair down and gives her that cute little curls. Classy.Another typical accessory for a “racing figure” supposing would be an umbrella but based on her “gears” and over all outfit I don’t think an umbrella would look good together with it so yeah I guess it’s fine without one. Though a car is probably better (but we are demanding for more extra yen on that). Hatsune Miku actually felt more like she’s going to fly at full speed with those I’m-not-sure-if-they’re-called-gear-wheels on her side. (and why did Gogo popped up in my head)
. . .
So I guess that’s it for now with this Racing Miku, she says that the next race is starting in a while so she needs to get going lol (Well I’m sorry for interrupting you Miku-san >.> ) Im pretty excited with the scaled version of this because I also adore that so much! I have been totally infected by Miku syndrome huhuhu.Oh gad look at her *cries in joy!
So yep that’s it!! Bye guys~!
