Wonder Festival 2015 Winter: Relax with FREEing's 1/4 Bunny Yoko

There's really no shortage of Yoko figures from Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann so it's always a welcome sight to see something a little different. Wait, did I say little? FREEing is ready to take up some massive shelf real estate...

Kyoko Sakura is festival ready

Eventually, all anime figures end up in a yukata. Kyoko, professional snacker and reluctant magical girl, is no exception. Standing at just under 8 inches, this PVC figure features the magical girl in a red yukata accented wi...

Hop to it for FREEing's Yukata Mikoto Misaka.

FREEing has found big success in their recent forays into Yukata figures, and A Certain Scientific Railgun remains a perennial merchandise favourite. It's hardly surprising therefore that the two have crossed paths, with...

figma the Thinker can't sit still for this gallery

Statues aren't supposed to move, but don't tell FREEing that. Their new figma based on Rodin's 1902 masterpiece is all about the ROM (range of motion). Being essentially a naked figma (and I do mean naked), and of the 2.0 var...

FREEing's Houki Shinonono is pretty foxy

I've not kept up with Infinite Stratos but its cast sure has gotten a lot of figures. I rather like FREEing's 1/4-scale Houki, mostly because of the way her expression works with those fox ears. Very cute indeed. If you want ...

Kahotan's newest preview is Racing Miku Sepang ver.

Kahotan's newest preview happens to be a face we've seen before: FREEing's Racing Miku Sepang version. There aren't a ton of revelations in her preview, but we do get at least a nice shot of her torso, showing off some of the...

Wonder Festival 2014 Summer: Good Smile Company girls part 2

Wonder Festival 2014 Summer: Good Smile Company - Vocaloids

Now that we're seeing more and more creative takes on Vocaloid designs, I'm actually enjoying their presence. It looks like the days of the same boring Miku design being made over and over again are done with. Good Smile Comp...

Wonder Festival 2014 Summer: FREEing

FREEing definitely know a good thing when they see it, as their booth was packed with their popular range of yukata-clad ladies. It seems like paired sets are the new hotness in FREEing's world. For me the highlight here is d...

FREEing's Racing Miku Sepang version speeds into pre-orders photo
FREEing's Racing Miku Sepang version speeds into pre-orders
by Scarecroodle

FREEing's 1/8-scale Racing Miku Sepang Version is currently available for pre-order. The figure features Vocaloid mascot Hatsune Miku in what might be her oddest racing attire thus far, although I'm sure it's a bar others may leap over in the future.

While I really like the design, there's no way that I'd guess that this figure had anything to do with racing if she wasn't holding the sign. As such, if you're just a fan of racy figures (as opposed to racy racing figures), you could always just remove the optional sign and display Miku as if she were doing some kind of dance.

Otherwise the pose and detail is certainly different. The wings are a neat touch as well. I'm less fond of the GSC stamp above her waist, but it's less of a distraction than the giant Super Sepang markings which remind you that the Sepang Version.

FREEing's Racing Miku Sepang Version has a ¥11,800 list price and is slated for a January release date. Hmm, January... seems a little slow for a racing figure.
