    Winter WonFest 2018: GSC & Co x Vocaloid

    Would it be a Wonder Festival without at least one Miku-centered post? Maybe in the year 2060, but this is 2018. And it’s still the Year of Miku in perpetuity. This time around we’re actually seeing a little bit less of her (and some other Vocaloids) from GSC & co, but still enough to satisfy fans! We have announcements for a scaled Racing Miku 2018 and a scaled Chinese V4 Miku from Good Smile, along with a new set of Rin & Len figures from Max Factory: the Stylish Energy L Versions.

    FREEing’s Thai Miku 2016 is (finally) painted, and we have two very exciting sculpts, both from GSC: the Chokabuki Kuruwa Kotoba Awase Kagami Miku (which is a bit… chunkier sculpt-wise than what I was expecting?), and the gorgeous Yoshiwara Lament Ver. of Kasane Teto. Last but not least there’s a figma of the Chinese V4X Miku and… a tiny little Racing Miku car!

    [UPDATE] As I predicted, we’re getting yet another version of the Tony Taka Racing Miku!

So far they have covered a wide variety of styles while still staying true to that ~racing vibez~ and 2018’s design is no exception! It might be the cutest one we’ve seen so far, but with a bit of a bratty edge that I really like.</p> <p>Today we are getting the full reveal of her Nendoroid design, and it’s so cute!! I mean, what a precious little princess. Like all of the racing Nendoroids she will be exclusive to the GSC store and will have a pretty wide variety of price points: everything from the basic Nendoroid to huge racing packages if you want to support GSC Racing a little bit more.</p> <p>[via <a href="http://www.goodsmile.info/ja/product/7061/%E3%81%AD%E3%82%93%E3%81%A9%E3%82%8D%E3%81%84%E3%81%A9+%E3%83%AC%E3%83%BC%E3%82%B7%E3%83%B3%E3%82%B0%E3%83%9F%E3%82%AF+2018Ver.html" onclick="_gaq.push(['_trackEvent', 'outbound-article', 'http://www.goodsmile.info/ja/product/7061/%E3%81%AD%E3%82%93%E3%81%A9%E3%82%8D%E3%81%84%E3%81%A9+%E3%83%AC%E3%83%BC%E3%82%B7%E3%83%B3%E3%82%B0%E3%83%9F%E3%82%AF+2018Ver.html', 'GSC']);" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">GSC</a>]</p>

    Check Out The New Racing & Snow Miku Designs

    Usually we get a decent amount of time between the reveal of Good Smile’s two seasonal Mikus, Snow and Racing. But this year, they’re going a little crazy for her 10th anniversary and showing off both at the same time! Because what we need this week is more Miku news, don’t you think?

    I must admit that the Racing designs almost never win me over until I see a sculpted scale, and this one is no different: it’s a little blah, and I feel like the ‘royalty’ theme for her is a little overdone. The Snow design, though, is so cute! Makes me sad we never get scales of the Snow designs.
