This is an article about the marketing of YAMAHA related properties.
Prior to her announcement, she also had a doll made for her by BLYTHE and custom made by galaxxxy. The doll was only for display and not for sale, but was used in promotion.
galaco's image first appeared on Kou's music video of galaxias! and later on T-shirts and posters in the VOCALOID Shop, however, the images of her prior to her announcement were either pixelated or appeared in silhouette form to conceal her identity.
She was aimed at a Japan target and due to variable limits and restrictions in her original prize version, overseas fans had limited methods of legally obtaining her. This made her the first Japan-exclusive VOCALOID for a short period of time.
A dress based on galaco's own has been produced. These outfits have been used in the dance "galaxias!" by the popular dance group "DANCEROID"
The standard version of the software has just the VOCALOID2 software included. The Deluxe edition comes with a free CD featuring a number of tracks by different producers, along with the configuration they used for the song and their own interpretation of the VOCALOID. This also provides users examples of how the voicebank could be used as well as offering ideas and suggestions for their own songs. The producers used were already known producers gathered from Nico Nico Douga and YouTube to help demonstrate the new standard YAMAHA hoped to set with VY1.

At VocaFes 2011, two winners were announced whose images will be used for VY1 and VY2. However VY1's redefined version was not presented alongside the original artwork like VY2's was because of an error. Previously, it was announced they would host a competition for everyone to design mascots for the characters as a method of perceiving what the fandom thought of VY1 and VY2.
