And finally the original artwork itself. The illustration is drawn by saitom, and costume is designed by Shimazaki Mari, who is known as the main character designer for Bayonetta video game. You can see a few more of saitom's drawings here.

figma Racing Miku 2013 can be purchased as part of a personal sponser course set, which also come with other items such as rubber straps and parasols etc depending on the prices. The price ranges from 7000 Yen to a breathtaking amount of 50000 Yen. The figma is scheduled to be released in January 2014, though other goodies may come earlier.

Available for pre-order on Goodsmile Racing. Deadline is 11th September at 23:59 (JST / GMT+9). Other Racing Miku related merchandise can be found there too.

This year's Racing Miku design resembles that of 2011 (review here), while the latter has more of a mature look. I actually skipped last year's Racing Miku, which looks a bit too young and mischievous to me. ^^; I personally like 2013's version, so I'll be looking forward to get her!

  1. Holy crap, the working parasol is making this a great figure to have if you love Miku or even racing.

    1. The open and closed parasol would be two separate items, as it was with the previous Racing Miku figmas. Great to pose with 1/12 vehicles for sure~
