It’s not too often you see a new Hatsune Miku model pop up based on an original design concept, but DigitrevX’s latest project is definitely an awesome one: One of the racing Miku 2016 finalist designs by RSK has been made into a MikuMikuDance model!

For the final 2016 Racing Miku design, Goodsmile Racing decided to incorporate details from all the finalists chosen, including elements from RSK’s submission, into a single design. RSK’s solo design, however, was a popular fan favorite (and one of ours as well!).

The Hatsune Miku Figure-riseBust, teased by BANDAI at several past events, finally got a release date and price announced at the 56th Shizuoka Hobby Show! The bust will become available in August 2017, with a surprisingly low price of 1,944 Yen ($17). Its overall availability, however, is yet to be known. We’ll try to keep you updated!

Due to the incredible feedback from last year’s Magical Mirai, it has been announced that the “Creators Market” section of the exhibition will be making its return, and bigger than ever!

Last year’s Creators Market area of the exhibition allowed fans to buy music directly from creators featured on Crypton’s KarenT music label. This gave the fans a chance to meet producers such as ATOLS, Yunosuke, Misumi, risou and more in person!


 
Magical Mirai’s announcement says they plan to expand the Creators Market area to introduce even more producers. Mitchie M seemed a little excited and also shared the news, so perhaps we can expect him to make an appearance at the event?

The Nendoroid Racing Miku 2017 Ver. got her very first in-depth review last night by Kahotan from Good Smile Company! We’ve seen her on display on many occasions, and we’re very excited to see her up close in details. The details regarding the Nendoroid (No. 777!) cover the green-yellow gradient and transparency very well, and nicely match the aspects designed by the illustrator Tony Taka, the official illustrator of Racing Miku 2017.

The official character of the Hatsune Miku GT Project ‘Racing Miku’ is joining the Nendoroids in her 2017 outfit!

The 2017 Racing Miku designed by popular illustrator Tony is based on the image of a fairy, and has been carefully converted into Nendoroid size for fans to enjoy in their collection. She comes complete with a bouquet to support the team, a Nendoroid car for her to ride in as well as a Nendoroid-sized trophy to celebrate the team’s win during the first race at the Okayama International Circuit.

She comes with a cute smiling face plate to complement her lovely face, and bouquet parts befitting fairy of the circuit. A traditional Nendoroid-size car will also be provided. In commemoration of the team winning first place at the Okayama International circuit earlier this year, a tiny replica of the trophy will also be included! (image below)

She’s currently available through personal sponsorship courses to support Goodsmile Racing in their races this year on the personal sponsors entry website. Applications were reopen recently, and will remain open until May 24th at 23:59 JST. Please note that other courses, namely the Figma sponsorship courses, show no sign of reopening yet. We’ll keep you up to date.
