Did you enjoy some or all of these event activities, and what did you think? Share your experiences below in the comments! But first, let’s move onto the new figure announcements…

Alphamax has announced they’ll be creating a scale figure based on the Miku Expo 2021 main visual art by Ryota sometime in the near future. For now, we just have the 3D render prototype reveal, but no other details such as the scale size, release dates, etc. So stay tuned for updates on that!

Tokyo Otaku Mode has announced an upcoming exclusive Hatsune Miku figure, designed by LAM. What’s unique about this already cool-looking design is that a jacket based on the one Miku is wearing will also be made available alongside the figure! Further details of course will be announced at a future date.

Goodsmile Racing has unveiled their Haregi version of the 2021 Racing Miku illustrated by En Morikura. Miku is seen wearing a pink haregi with a mix of maid aesthetics.

The haregi version is meant to be for the 10 Hours of Suzuka but the race was announced back in March earlier this year that it will be cancelled due to the ongoing pandemic. Despite the disappointment from the team, they wrapped the new Racing Miku on a spare bonnet for display at the Akiba CO Gallery.
