Every Miku fan’s favorite bicycle racing mascot is here! The Racing Miku 2016 TeamUKYO ver. is finally getting the Max Factory quality treatment, after previously appearing as a prize figure. Compared to that version, you can expect significant improvements in the sculpt and details.

The 2016 Racing Miku is here to support TeamUKYO as a scale figure!

The TeamUKYO Support Ver. of the official character of the Hatsune Miku GT Project, “Racing Miku” has been transformed into a scale figure! The illustration by popular animator Mai Yoneyama featuring Racing Miku in a TeamUKYO cycling jersey has been faithfully converted into a 1/7th scale figure.

She has a huge smile her face as she carries a spare bicycle tire and a bag filled with supplies for those who need some replenishment! The adorable Racing Miku is ready to support the team with a smile!

The figure is open for preorder now from Good Smile Company’s online shop, as well as various other partner shops. Preorders from GSC’s shop are available until August 3rd at 12:00 PM JST, with a price of 17,810 Yen ($163 USD), although this will vary among other shops. She’s expected to ship in March 2018.

If you enjoyed the hugely popular manga “Unofficial Hatsune Mix” when it released in the U.S. back in 2014, then you’ve probably waiting for another book like it to come along. The great news is that Unofficial Hatsune Mix’s U.S. publisher Dark Horse has done just that!

Hatsune Miku: Mikubon is a licensed comic originally drawn and written by Ontama in 2013, and was recently announced for U.S. publication by Dark Horse at the 2016 New York Comic Con. It comes in paperback with 176 pages, 8 of them in full color. You can now find the book at your local book stores (Barnes & Noble being one example), as well as other retailers like Target and Amazon! The book retails for $10.99, sometimes less. UK residents can find the manga from Waterstones or Amazon UK.

Hatsune Miku and her friends Rin, Len, and Luka are not only back in manga . . . They’re back to school, enrolling at the St. Diva Academy for Vocaloids! They’re going to give it their best at St. Diva, as a wonderland of friendship, determination, and even love unfolds! But can they stay out of trouble, especially when the mad professor of the Hachune Miku Research Lab is nearby . . . ?
