We have already reached June!

We’re fast approaching the halfway mark of the year… and WonFes is only 2 months away!

Even though we have moved into summer now…  

003

We still have Snow Miku!

The left is the 2010 edition, and the right is the 2011 edition – she has also been released as a downloadable costume for Sega’s Project DIVA game!

We have a collaboration going on to help decide that!

004

A collaboration project between Good Smile Company and Piapro!

The 2012 Snow Miku

 Costume Design Contest!

005

We’ll pick one design to be used for next year’s Sapporo Snow Festival Snow Miku!

But, there is a bit of a theme that needs to be followed…

‘A 2012 Nendoroid Snow Miku Outfit that makes use of gems/jewels resembling snow or ice!’
Ooh! That seems like it’ll bring in lots of gorgeous designs!

002

So, in order to get some creative thoughts going I found a little blue jewel and let the previous Snow Miku hold it!

We won’t be able to use real jewels in the 2012 Snow Miku…
But we’ll make them look as realistic as possible!

Well, I say ‘we’, but the real hard work will come from the Good Smile production team… but I’ll be there to cheer them on! Thanks as always guys!

001

I believe this is the first time we’ll be putting jewels or gems into the design of a Nendoroid!

Snow Miku is known to bring lots of interesting challenges to the team, but it’s always a lot of fun to work on! (albeit a lot of trouble for the production team :P)

Details for entering a design can be found on Piapro’s website linked below, so if you’re interested take a look. (Unfortunately it’s only in Japanese.)

16 days to the Wonder Festival!

001

Yesterday I went over the first of the WonFes products, Nendoroid Mato & Yomi Set!

Today I’m going to be looking at the second!

Nendoroid Snow Miku:

Snow Playtime Edition!

S-Sorry… I think we added too many things…

During my trip to China in December I was making sure that she was being made just right!

002

Let’s get started on the review!

This is how the packaging looks!

The pack is filled with extra parts! A Nendo Petite sized snowman, two different expressions, hair parts for a Hachune version, different hand parts, headsets…. and that’s not all!

She even comes with a Miku-shaped ice tray!

You can see the ice tray’s blue outline in the back of the blister pack.

003

A fully posable Snow Miku!

She’s back again for the 62nd Sapporo Snow Festival, to commemorate the giant snow sculpture of Miku at the event!

Some of you might be wondering about that.

SEGA announced it yesterday, but…
A new module featuring Snow Miku is coming to the PSP game ‘Hatsune Miku -Project DIVA- 2nd’, as well as the arcade game ‘Hatsune Miku Project DIVA Arcade!

Snow Miku is going to be bouncing and dancing around in the game, so it’s only fair that the Nendoroid can do it as well!! If you’re looking for more info about the module, take a look at SEGA’s site below:

And if you’re looking for more info about the Snow Festival, you can find more information on Crypton’s website:  

There are lots of other awesome looking goods on sale!

[SNOW MIKU for SAPPORO 2011 ]

http://www.crypton.co.jp/mp/pages/special/snowmiku2011/ (Japanese only)

004

This is how she looks from the back!

The silver snowflakes in her hair look just the same as the previous version… still just as beautiful as ever! The hair also uses clear plastic just like before… isn’t it beautiful!?

005

Let’s compare her with the last Snow Miku!

The left is the 2011 Snow Miku, and the right is the 2010 Snow Miku.

This year’s looks a little more grown up, but they’re both adorable!

006

You can put the new parts on the old Snow Miku!

The scarf, earmuffs and gloves all fit her perfectly!

Unfortunately the expressions are not exchangeable due to some changes in the design. (Although I’m fairly sure the expressions will fit on any new Nendoroids)

If you want to put the new expressions on the old Miku, you’ll have to use the new fringe parts as well!

007

Anyway, let’s get back to the new Miku’s review!

She comes with this embarrassed face!

Snow Miku was never based on any illustrations or anything, so all the expressions were designed by Kawapon. They were still being modified at the very last moments of being made… I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

008

The famous ‘Hachune Face!’

Although it’s a different Hachune face to the previous figure!

Of course she also comes with a ice leek to hold!

And using the new posability you can make epic poses like the one above!

009

You can take off all the winter clothes!

The scarf, earmuffs and gloves can all be removed! In place of the earmuffs you can put her black headset on for a more Miku-esque pose!

010

Nendoroid Petite-sized Snowman!

It’s got a Hachune face! And the arms are made of ice leeks! It’s adorable!

And because it’s Nendoroid Petite size…

015

You can switch heads with other Petites!

It uses the normal connector used in Nendo Petites, so you can try it with all sorts of characters!

011

Bonus Scene!

This is how she looks with the charming CHAN×CO Face!
 
The eye color even matches! It looks great! This face along with the Hachune face… I think I’m going to die from cuteness!!! Aaahh!!

012

Nyaa Face!

This one comes from Nendoroid Shiki Ryougi!

I wanted to try and pose her in a slick Shiki-like pose! It’s a lot of fun trying to think up and pose the fully posable Nendoroids like this!!

013

The first public view of this extra…

The ice-tray!

It is made of a very soft silicone-like material. This obviously came from the idea of making Miku into your very own ice sculptures for the snow festival!

I’ll post the results on the blog at a later stage!
