Welcome to this week’s Figma News Fridays! But this isn’t just any Friday for me. It’s actually the last FNF I will be writing before my birthday next Thursday, and a new age means…pretty much nothing until I’m 21. So by next FNF, I will be a new bunny…or cow. Whatever I am.
However, the figure side of the week still offered little. We just have some teaser images to look at.
Racing Miku 2014 Previewed
We only have teaser images, but at least they’re good ones! Racing Miku’s preorders always begin the same day as summer Wonderfestival, but what was different this time was that we did not get to see any accessories. Often accessories make or break a figma, so I’ve been eagerly waiting to see them to solidify my opinion. Now we finally have some lovely preview images showing off Miku courtesy of Kahotan!
Miku comes with detailed “side boosters” (you try to think of a better name!) to match the illustration she was based off of and the scaled figure by GSC(which is gorgeous by the way).
But you also receive a simplified version.
Is it me, or does her outfit look a lot like a middle school swimsuit.
I really do love that kinky hair.
No, not that kind of kinky.
And finally her second face!
This time I am torn as while the face is energetic, those wide eyes fling us dangerously close to the yandere border.
Yander-acing Miku also comes with a flag to wave! This is one of my favorite flags to come with a Racing Miku figma since it’s not just another iteration of a checkered flag.
The parasol continues that trend by featuring more bold colors.
Also not pictured here is a folded parasol.
Racing Miku continues to be stylized and interesting(in my opinion at least), but no Miku has captured my heart as 2012 did, so I will most likely be preordering her. Piling an extra 7000 yen on top of my usual orders is more than I’d care for anyway.
Preorders for the higher end Racing Miku packages which include jackets, umbrellas, rubber straps, hats, and more depending on how much you want to pay end on September 10th(right before my birthday!), but those just interested in the 7000 yen figma package have until October 27th to decide. I like that GSC went that route!
For anyone still on the fence about this year’s Racing Miku, I recommend taking a peek at Kahotan’s original entry which has more pictures and information.
That closes out this week! I’m still waiting for a week with actual figma news, but in the mean time, how do you feel about this year’s Racing Miku?
