In commemoration of their championship, Good Smile Racing has reopened the 7,000 yen 2014 Racing Miku Figma sponsorship course for a limited period of time. Reservations opened on November 20th, and scheduled to close on November 30th at 23:59 JST. All Figma courses will also include a miniature version of the SuperGT championship trophy.
Two all-new Racing Miku 2014 goods have popped up recently, with only some details regarding their upcoming release. These include a plushie, as well as a new prize machine figure. The plushie was teased at the recent Good Smile Racing celebration party, where some fans snapped pictures of the plushie.
The only details known so far are that the manufacturer GIFT plans to sell the plushie at the upcoming Comiket 87 this December, at booth 412 for all three days (December 28th~30th). The price is set at 3,000 Yen. Further release details are currently unknown, and we’re not sure if it will be a C87 exclusive. GIFT’s C87 announcement page: http://www.gift-gift.jp/event/c87.html
Lastly, we have a prize machine figure based on an original illustration by Oguchi, the official illustrator of Racing Miku 2014. This figure was manufactured by Banpresto, and stands at 18cm tall. The exact machines the figure can be found in is not yet announced, but it should be a crane-style machine, which typically cost 100 Yen per play. The launch date is set for January 2015.
