Open preorders have just been announced for the Racing Miku 2014: EV MIRAI Ver. 1/7 Scale Figure, which we recently saw teased at the Winter Wonder Festival. Newcomers to Racing Miku may wonder what this design is about, and Good Smile Company’s description explains it rather well:
“The Hatsune Miku GT Project’s mascot character Racing Miku teamed up with the electric motorbike manufacturer ‘TEAM MIRAI’ to become ‘Racing Miku 2014: EV MIRAI Ver.’ which has now been made into this 1/7th scale figure!
She is wearing the 2014 biker suit designed by Shigeto Koyama, walking along confidently with her long twintails fluttering behind her! The reverse side of her that was never visible on the original illustration is also filled with highlights for fans to enjoy. Enjoy adding this cute, sporty Miku to your collection!”
Manufactured by Max Factory, this figure is available from Good Smile Company’s online shop for 15,800 Yen ($132 USD), but is also available in other price ranges from various vendors:
