Introducing The Racing Miku 2012 Ver. Figma, But You Can’t Buy Her

By Ishaan . August 29, 2012 . 4:30pm

More Vocaloid figurines? More Vocaloid figurines. This time, we’re looking at Racing Miku: 2012 ver., which the Good Smile Company showed off on their blog today. This one can’t be purchased normally, though—you need to be a sponsor for the 2012 Good Smile Racing team. More details can be found here.


As indicated by the photographs, Racing Miku comes with an open parasol, a closed parasol, and a checkered flag as well. There’s a champagne bottle you make her hold on to as well. More images can be found at the links above.

  • Bull. They need to stop making these exclusives. People don’t want to fork over hundreds of dollars just to get one.

    • Azuku

      You can say that, but the fact that these sorts of things not only sell out, but sell out very quickly seems to disprove that logic.

      “People don’t want to fork over hundreds of dollars just to get one.”

      You’d be surprised at how far the slippery slope goes.

        I’ve been sliding down it since 2006, myself, no end in sight.  On the bright side, it’s just like a water slide!


      • PoweredByHentai

        I’ve gone down the slope a few times already.  :D

        • ThatAzure

           Same here o.o; looks at iBRS figma looking all cool and sexy in the display case xD

          • PoweredByHentai

            I have the BRS figma that came with huke’s artbook.  :D

            I think Kinokuniya Los Angeles still has them in stock.

          • ThatAzure

            Me too :D~ And what an art book that is might I add :P!

  • Silver Citizen

    That’s a damn crying shame. I actually had the urge to get this one.

  • Visa Vang

    The cheapest sponsorship is 8000 yen. To be honest, around $90 for an exclusive is not bad if you’re one of those people (like me), who collects figures for a hobby. (-_-“”) (Damn you Siliconera … I love you so much… I couldn’t stop myself from getting one…)

    • Locklear93

      Assuming 8000 yen is enough to get the figma (I’m not in the market just now, even though I do collect figures, so I haven’t checked), you’re completely right.  It’s high for a figma, mid or even low for most 1/8 PVCs, without taking its exclusive status into consideration.

  • Spectacularity

    *cries in a corner*

  • Mazdian

    Haha, her expressions are so cute and wacky! But 116USD for an exclusive is a bit painful on my wallet. x.x

    • Brandonmkii

      I’ve done worse! So I guess I’m in for this :3

  • ThatAzure

    Ouch Ishaan that title really hurt D: Anyway, Racing Miku is so cute :D

  • Darkrise

    Dammit it all! Why the tease!? It’s bad enough I just quit buying figma’s or anything related, now this comes out, making me want it badly, but noooo~ we can’t get it normally because of “sponsors only”! AGGHHH just- just leave me in corner… (*´д`*)

  • I blame Good Smile for making this exclusive on some ridiculous sponsorship…

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    its cool someone would make a clone 

  • keithmaxx

    So instead of “buying” one, you “sponsor” one… yet you end up paying either way. Don’t see the difference, just a cute-as-ever Miku.

    • Visa Vang

       Sponsoring is basically buying. Usually you’ll be buying a space or area to advertise your business though.

  • “Sigh”

    (Hands wallet over to Good Smile, with a frown) =P

  • Bakuryukun

    I really like her hair, it’s really dynamic looking.
