The official character of the Hatsune Miku GT Project, “Racing Miku” has been transformed into a 1/8th scale figure based on her 2016 Thai Ver. design!

Her golden brown skin and energetic appearance has been captured in careful detail as she runs along with a huge smile on her face, ready to cheer you up whenever you need!

The deluxe version also includes the giant speaker stand for the complete Love is War experience! Make sure you don’t miss out!”

Sorry we’re a bit late on this one, still catching up from the Snow Miku 2018 and WonFes madness! If you also somehow missed it, the Snow Miku 2018: Crane Priestess ver. Nendoroid and Figma are now available for preorder until just February 27th at 12:00 PM JST!
“Snow Miku performing dance and prayer dressed as a priestess!
2018 marks the 9th anniversary of Snow Miku, and the 2018 design was once again selected by fans through online votes between a selection of outfits all submitted to piapro by fans! This year the theme was “Animals of Winter Hokkaido”, and the winning Snow Miku design was this version based on a red-crowned crane illustrated by Taichadon! The illustration has now been converted into this adorable Nendoroid!

The hood can be attached and removed for a different look, and she comes with three different face plates including a standard expression, a wistful smiling face as well as a prayer face with closed eyes and a touch of lipstick. Optional parts include a kagura bell and folding fan to pose her performing traditional dances! A cypress stand to place the tools on as well as kneeling parts are also included to display her in prayer, and a crane made from ice is also included for her to hold in her hands.

In addition, a large base featuring a paved road and torii archway is also included to bring out the temple atmosphere, and she comes with a broom to display her cleaning the temple grounds! The snow on the base can even be removed for even more display opportunities! Enjoy the relaxed Snow Miku priestess in all sorts of adorable Nendoroid poses!

The Nendoroid and Figma are priced at 6,000 Yen ($57) each, and are scheduled to ship in July 2018. Don’t miss your chance to add this beautiful Snow Miku duo to your collection!
