Much to my surprise Racing Miku 2011 Scale Figure came in today
(I wasn’t expecting it to arrive this early, the Post Office actually did their job for once)! She comes in a gorgeous box and is absolutely stunning. She is my first scale figure of Miku, and I find this to be the most gorgeous figure of her out there.
You know you can actually have two options with Miku’s hair, one is leaving it without the pig-tails. She looks super adorable with short hair.
I actually considered leaving it like that at first, but then I decided to put her together properly so that I could this write up… Only I will never ever attempt to remove her twintails unless I absolutely have to because GOD DAMN IT. Putting her pig-tails together was hell of a bitch. You’ll see in the pictures that one of them isn’t completely, and firmly in, but just enough so that it won’t fall off on its own. As I was struggling to put it together, my greatest concern was snapping the surrounding hair pieces and damaging the pig-tails and face in the process.
The hair is grand, is is literally as large as the figure itself. The end pieces are made out of the same material as MaxFactory’s Vocaloid Luka Megurine scale figure (which I haven’t done an entry on yet). It’s very nice material, but it does attract dust, so I would advise you to have have these kinds of figures in a display cabinet of some sort to minimize the dust getting in.
Racing Miku’s pose and figure is stunning.
There is such elegance in her pose that really makes the figure so stunning. It truly brings out her beauty. My favorite feature of all is her face, which was the selling point for me, and what encouraged me to invest in this particular Miku figure in the first place. By far, this is probably from what I’ve seen the most mature expression and face we’ve seen on any Miku figures. Perhaps the second now since Goodsmile’s Supercell feat. Hatsune Miku: World is Mine scale figure that was being re-released back in September (which is also stunning, but I decided to pass it).
Goodsmile Company’s Racing Miku 2011 ver. Scale Figure was definitely worth my investment. The only flaw was the struggle of putting her hair together, otherwise she is from head to toe in perfect condition. She comes with a closed umbrella (?) accessory, (but truthfully speaking I find it quite ugly and I had forgotten to attach it when I was redoing the pictures).
Racing Miku 2011 ver. is still available at CDJapan, unfortunately AmiAmi and HobbySearch are both SOLD OUT.
