figma Snow Miku

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

Today I present everyone with some brand new Snow Miku news! A lot of the time Snow Miku is only associated with Nendoroids… but the time has come for her to join the figma series! Today I’ll be taking a look at none other than…

figma Snow Miku!! ♡♡

· The famous Snow Miku that was changed into a Nendoroid for the Sapporo Snow Festival is finally becoming a figma too!
· The newly designed original figma joints allow for better articulation, letting you create all sorts of different poses!
· She comes with an adorable smiling expression, a cheerful singing expression and a blushing expression.
· An attachable scarf and gloves are included, and she also comes with a snowman mascot holding a microphone.
· An articulated figma stand is included, which allows various poses to be taken.

I’ve been waiting so long for this day!! (*´Д`)

I was constantly worried that Snow Miku may never become a figma… but this Winter figma fans like myself can rejoice!! Let’s have a word with the planner for the figma, Akane Eiseihei from Max Factory!

(・∀・) “Sorry for the wait! We’re finally ready to bring you figma Snow Miku!”

It has been a couple of years since the original Snow Miku became a Nendoroid…

(・∀・) “When the Nendoroid was released, Kaneko Nitohei was constantly complimenting her cuteness!”

It’s about time we saw the figma! ★

(・∀・) “We did have loads of requests for figma Snow Miku… she uses the new dynamic joints that were used for figma Hatsune Miku 2.0, which will allow for all sorts of poses such as playing in the snow, singing or dancing!”


A pose with her hand like this would only be possible with the new joints! ♪

(・∀・) “Much better looking, more natural poses are possible now!”

The singing expression seen here is very versatile too!
It can be used for much more than just singing poses!

(・∀・) “The singing expression is super cheerful looking, so it works an a simple smiling expression too!”

It’s also works great posed playing with the snowman!
She looks like she’s having so much fun! ♥


The new joints also allow you to pose her on her knees, and it still looks so natural! (*´▽`*)

More importantly… just look at that snowman with the mike!!


How does a snowman have such an amazing presence!!? (゚A゚;)

The included gloves are also a lovely extra touch!

(・∀・) “Of course standard hands are also included! Plus the scarf in all these photos can also be removed! All the little changes actually allow for quite a lot of different appearances!”

Is there anything else you’d like to specifically point out to everyone?

(・∀・) “The embarrassed expression!!”


(・∀・) “The slightly upturned eyes and gentle look are just too much! There is no way I could say no to this expression!!”

Agreed! She’s so adorable it’s unfair!! It’s a strangely different feeling to most other embarrassed expressions! Σ(/ω\)

How did you get such a unique looking expression, Akane-sensei?!

(・∀・) “I’d have to say the main difference is the eyebrows! They add a little bit of uncertainty to the expression which really pulls it together! There are many expressions with eyebrows in this shape, but not many combined with an embarrassed look – so it was something I really wanted to try!”

I see!! The eyebrows have such a strong effect! It really somehow seems to touch my heart more than most embarrassed expressions! ヘ(゚∀゚*)ノ

(・∀・) “I hope everyone else feels the same way! ♡”

The coloring is also fantastic! The gentle blue and white outfit as well as the gradient in the hair is lovely! (`・ω・´)★

(・∀・) “The silver areas are also not too shiny, but add just enough shine to make her beautiful! The tips of her hair are made from clear PVC, which gradually fades into a more solid color!! ♡”

(・∀・) “figma Snow Miku and figma Hatsune Miku 2.0 can also swap parts between each other for even more options! Switch expressions or optional parts for an even more unique Miku!”

Ooh! That’s nice to hear! I’d also love to see the contrast between the two of them displayed together!! I can’t wait to get my hands on her!!


(・∀・) “Sorry she took so long to announce! I hope everyone will enjoy adding her to their collections! ♪”
