The official Figma Blog has released images and details regarding the release of the Figma Racing Miku 2013 EV MIRAI ver. The figma design is based on the illustration by Saitom, and was the official mascot character for Good Smile Racing’s electric bike racing division in 2013.

The Figma itself will come with two different facial expressions, and a wearable helmet and water bottle accessory. It is purchasable as a standalone product, not part of a GSR sponsorship package. The price is set at 4,800 Yen ($47 USD), and is expected to ship in October 2014. The “ex:ride” scale bicycle, manufactured by FREEing, is available as a separate accessory with the price set at 6,264 Yen ($62 USD). Both are available for order starting tomorrow, June 26th JST from Good Smile Company’s online shop.

santa_mikuI hope that you are all enjoying your Christmas Eve, or whatever day you may be celebrating today.

In the light of the holiday, I felt it would be appropriate to share some music to fit the season. Below you’ll find several videos of Christmas or Winter themed songs, with the first being a brand new video by SEGA featuring the track “39” by sasakure.UK and DECO*27.

Since there’s quite a few videos, you’ll find the rest of them in the full article. I wish everyone out there a safe and enjoyable holiday season, with a new year right around the corner! Happy “Mikumas”!

Well, that didn’t take long. Just a few hours after my previous post, now we have official images from Mikatan’s blog of the 2013 Snow Miku Nendoroid.

From what’s visible, the nendoroid includes two different hair styles, at least three different expressions, and a removable hood for her kimono outfit. Also shown is an umbrella and even a few accessories to allow a sitting position. There is currently no announced pre-order date or pricing, but we likely wont see that information for at least a couple months.

Also announced is the Snow Miku 2013 module update for Project Diva Arcade in both hooded and non-hooded forms. There is also a DLC module announced for Project Diva f on the PS Vita, but there is still no confirmed release date or price.

Head over to Mikatan’s blog for the full set of full size images!
