(Sepang, Racing 2013 Ver.)

Gotta love this new 1/8th scale Miku figure from Freeing! This is the first time I saw Miku “tanned” and it just looks great! I think this is one of the best Miku figures to date. Will be released January 2015, ¥10,926.

Character Info

Hatsune Miku (初音ミク) is a Japanese VOCALOID developed and distributed by Crypton Future Media, Inc., and was initially released in August 2007 for the VOCALOID2 engine. It is part of the Character Vocal Series. There has since been numerous installments such as additional voice banks dubbed 'Append', as well as an upgrade to the VOCALOID3 engine, which includes her long awaited English vocal release. She was the first release for Crypton's VOCALOID Character Vocal Series, the third Japanese VOCALOID, and the seventh VOCALOID to have been created overall. She is considered the most popular and well known VOCALOID and the first to become a pop idol. Her voice is provided by the Japanese female voice actress, Saki Fujita (藤田 咲, Fujita Saki).

Series Info

Since the 2008 season, different teams in the Super GT racing received their sponsorship under Good Smile Racing, and turned their cars to Vocaloid-related artwork. Hatsune Miku's design has been adapted into a Racing Queen version for each seasons since 2010. The designs are offically acknowledged as "Racing Miku" (レーシングミク) derivative and are based on Miku's attire.

The 2009 derivative is the only version of the Racing Miku derivatives which did not have an official illustration featured based on her, though it was featured in merchandise for that season. The unveiling of the Racing Miku derivatives only became a feature from the 2010 season onwards. All merchandise related to Good Smile Racing featuring Miku prior to the 2010 season, with the exception of the 2009 Racing Miku figurine, features Miku in her normal attire.

The 2008 season remains the only season where other Crypton Future Media Vocaloids (Kagamine Rin Len) on a Good Smile Racing related car. In 2013, Miku also was featured with racing outfit in the Isle of Man motor cycling race, for this race Team Mirari were sponsored. Miku also recieved a "Sepang" version showing bare toned skin as part of showing good health and promoting the design as "the Angel of summer"
