I probably left too much of a hint on my other post, but the reason I was fiddling around with the ATM the other day was for the sake of Hatsune Miku Racequeen version, known in Japanese as 初音ミクRQver. There were one or two readers who were obsessed with Hatsune Miku here besides me, but I felt like sharing my most recent pre-order. :). This racequeen is actually much more special than the previous nendroid Miku and is far far more rare, which prompted me to jump on it immediately. Read on to find out why!
For those of you who don’t know, Hatsune Miku has her own itasha racecar in the Japanese SuperGT GT300, run by the awfully named Studie Glad Racing. The car itself is named the “Miku Z4”. Unfortunately, they’re also not a very good racing team, so they came up with a brilliant idea where if they came up with a limited edition Hatsune Miku nendroid they could get thousands of fans to willingly pay them hundreds of thousands of dollars. I also willingly jumped into the trap and offered up my 7,000 yen for their “Sponsor Package” which was available through their online checkout for a limited time.
The figure itself isn’t out yet, so I’ll be ninja’ing the pics from Mika-tan (Good Smile Company)’s blog and translating the relevant descriptions! I’ve picked out the important lines and essentially translated from here: http://ameblo.jp/gsc-mikatan/entry-10243042759.html
The new nendroid comes with a special Studio Glad Racing umbrella!
Unbelievably, she comes with 2 “negi umbrellas” in 2 different modes!
It also comes with a car! (The Miku Z4)
As you can see the color of the car is black. But just before the blog was written, the Good Smile Company bloggers finished painting the decal on the car! Just in time!
If you stick on the included “Seal Set”, you too can make your car look like the Miku Z4!
It also comes with a number of Miku faces AND she can ride in her own Miku Z4!
Or angry Miku Race face inside her lovely race car! This was the shot that won it for me. I couldn’t but say… MOE and handed these people my hard earned money.
Also comes with Hachune Miku face! I wonder if these faces are exchangeable with the existing Miku nendroid.
The lack of determination on her face is priceless.
Well that’s it for me from this time around. 😛 I’m probably the only one who’s interested in this sort of thing, but I felt like sharing it anyway. Maybe the random Japanese, romaji, and translations helped some people who are interested in this sort of thing though!
Until next time!
