galaco's Doll

Prior to her announcement, she also had a doll made for her by BLYTHE and custom made by galaxxxy.[1] 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"[2]

A collaboration was formed with Mizuno to promote a new pair of sports shoes. A song was produced featuring galaco to advertise the brand.[3][4]
