The Figma Racing Miku 2016: TeamUKYO Support ver. is now available for preorder! The figma is based on an original design by Mai Yoneyama, Racing Miku 2016’s illustrator, to cheer on for Good Smile Racing and TeamUKYO’s bicycle racing team!

The 2016 edition of Racing Miku is here to cheer on for TeamUKYO!

GOODSMILE RACING & TeamUKYO’s team manager Ukyo Katayama also leads a bicycle team called TeamUKYO, and Racing Miku is here to cheer them on! This special design of the 2016 edition of Racing Miku has now been transformed into a figma for fans to enjoy by their side.

  • The smooth yet posable figma joints allow you to act out a variety of different scenes.
  • A flexible plastic is used in specific areas, allowing proportions to be kept without compromising posability.
  • She comes with both a cheerful smiling expression and a more serious, confident expression.
  • Optional parts include a drink bottle as well as a partially pre-painted plastic model kit for a bicycle.
  • An articulated figma stand is included, which allows various poses to be taken.

The Racing Miku 2017 figure by Good Smile Company is now available for preorder! Her scale is described as “1/1” scale, however, she is “fairy-sized”. So her canon height of 23cm is actually very tiny!

“The official character of the 2017 Hatsune Miku GT Project
A full scale figure of the official character of the Hatsune Miku GT Project “Racing Miku” in her 2017 version. The adorable fairy Miku illustrated by popular artist Tony has been transformed into a figure with careful attention to all of the details of her original design.

The figure makes use of multiple translucent parts in order to being out the see-through feel of the colors on the original illustration. The curves of her flexible, healthy looking body have all been captured to create a figure ready to charm both fans and newcomers alike! Be sure to add the fairy-sized Miku to your collection!”

She’s available starting today from Good Smile Company’s online shop for 13,800 Yen ($127 USD), and will close on September 21st at 12:00 PM JST. Her expected delivery date is July 2018. She’s also available at other online shops. Grab her from the links below!
