Standing by the hill-side gazing over the Cool Culture of Otakuism!

Pole Position

Hatsune Miku has enjoyed much popularity over the years ever since her début as a virtual idol, taking up many positions such as being an official  race queen for Good Smile Racing for the past few years.

While GSR has offered the public a chance to sponsor their favourite virtual idol in the GT races, it was only available to the Japanese for the past yesteryear.

Sponsors are usually given an assortment of limited Racing Miku merchandise for the year, especially the much sought after Figma and Nendoroid versions of the Racing Miku besides the usual straps, stickers, personal sponsorship cards and other stuffs…

Spotted at Good Smile Company’s booth during AFAMY12, Racing Miku version 2012’s elegant futuristic design caught my eyes, grabbing my heart with her almost impish grin… And I told myself this: I definitely must get a Figma version of her!

With the exception of International Basic Course, all sponsorship options will include a Figma Racing Miku (2012 ver.)…

Like I mentioned earlier, her impish grin really takes my breath away…

Dat little tiara-like thingie on her front hair piece makes such a nice accessory. ^_^

Secondary face plate features a bright, beaming smile brings out the cheerful innocence while maintaining sexiness of her chara.

Being a race queen, the parasol is a must have accessory for Racing Miku. Comes in both opened and closed variant.

One must not forget the chequered flag used in any GT races!

To celebrate on winning the races, Racing Miku will pop a champagne-ful of victories! XDc

According to official sources, the Figma will be delivered in December 2012; The Personal Sponsor Card and Ticket Holder as soon as you placed your order; The rest in October 2012. Note that GSR requires you to pay up for your order upfront, not when all merchandise are ready for shipping…

I’ve placed my order for the international Course A a couple of weeks ago and yet had already received my Personal Sponsor Card and Ticket Holder a couple of nights ago. That was quite a surprise!

Now for a long wait ahead for the Figma! orz
