The Figure Rant~

Racing Miku 2015 Nendoroid: by Good Smile Company

She's finally here! I was so looking forward to this nendoroid and I am glad it arrived very quickly in time for the weekend \o/

I have no prior history of the Racing Miku series as this is the first year that I personal sponsored the GSC Racing Team. I think it's pretty cool that the GSC Racing team is also sponsored by their fans as well, although I have no knowledge of the racing sport the team participates in ~_~;;

Ah well, this is the Nendoroid version of the Racing Miku 2015 series; let's get started~

The box is, dare I say, pretty darn cool. It feels special and not just another nendoroid box. It's probably because of the rectangle box size, ha.

I went with the least expensive personal sponsorship of ¥8,000 and the rubber keychain is very nice. I liked that the background color of it is bluegreen and not black.

The blister shell looks like it isn't much with accessories, but it is huge with the car and flag. I wished there were one more faceplate.

The stickers for the car decal. I'm not into putting in stickers myself, so I'll leave the car blank for now...

accessories include a bent leg, holding hands, and holding the steering wheel

Looking to the left faceplate. Wished there was one more faceplate though...three faceplates are a good standard don't cha think?

Flag, shield, and parasol. This is a very "knightly" Miku XD

second body used for sitting in the car. Also, spare neck piece.

Miku's whip: Mercedes-Benz sls amg gt3 roadster. Must be nice, ha! I'd personally love a Miata.

And there she is! So beautiful :3 I love this design and after seeing the past Racing Miku's, this is my favorite.

The most standout feature of this Miku is her hair! I truly love it. The overall sea green color, darkend at the lines and the transparnt yellow at the bottom is a nice touch.

The second highlight is Racing Miku's yellow skirt frill. A transparent darker yellow. I think of her as a princess knight.

Her eyes has five colors going on there! Very lovely.

Headphones or protective armor that is connected to her crown?

Articulation on a nendoroid; first time I seen it. I'm guessing it is the same as "super movable edition" Nendoroids like saber and Archer.

photoshoot with various poses. I tried to not use the stock poses except for the third photo.

Overall: I am very impressed with my first Racing Miku! She's so adorable with a racing princes-knight theme going on there. Definitely worth the personal sponsorship price. Heck, I've paid more for a nendoroid for much less in accessories >=( If Racing Miku's 2016 design is as unique as this one, then sign me up!

I would have liked the car stickers already on the car as I get very nervous in placing them and would hate to see imperfections. I'll have to give it the ole' college try when I'm feeling confident O_O;;

I am really looking forward to seeing the figma version of her and to hear what the figma lovers think about the figma. Oh, and the scale version too.


till the next figure to rant on, bye~

mickeydeerho (3 years ago) #3799561Thank you for taking time out of your day to read my rant ^.^
I'm trying to go for more of a casual conversation with my reviews rather than looking at figures like a critic. My motto is to not "tl;dr" it with the wall of texts and photos.
I don't want to spend too much time on every single detail, but I will point out negatives them out if it bothers me very much.
I tend to rant on and on...


Are you giving my extensive figure reviews a slight stab there m8? View spoilerHide spoilerJoking of course. :P

ditdit (3 years ago) #3634634Nice that you were able to find this year's Racing Miku! I still am enjoying her display, although, I still have not put on the stickers on the car yet -.-;;

I like the Racing Miku theme collection you got and you got to let me know how the Figma version turns out because I really like that one as well.


Will do! I'll do a review of the Figma as soon she gets in. I can't wait for her and I hope they release the other scale model as well. And to apply the stickers, I used a q-tip as a squeegee lol!

ditdit (3 years ago) #3634634I feel so salty on not getting her too after seeing how much extra stuff she comes with T.T
*EDIT*
welp I just got her LOL! she is amazing! Deciding whether to put the stickers on or just put on slaps in my display case. I've got a lexus that i'm trying to get some GSR stickers on as well.
Great review and you should get that miata, fun little cars plus there are plenty of anime slaps and stickers I can point you towards!
