Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)
Yesterday was the big reveal of all sorts of Snow Miku information, so I’m going to be summarizing everything for everyone today! ♡
The theme for the 2015 Snow Miku is Winter plants in Hokkaido! We received all sorts of wonderful entries, but the final winner was…
This lovely design by Taran!
We also had a separate contest to determine the Rabbit Yukine design for 2015, and the winner was… ♥︎
A very leafy design by Hayuki!
Anyway, it’s been a couple of months since these were decided upon, and Kai Sasaki has been hard at work with the sculpting of the Nendoroid… so here she is! ♪
Nendoroid Snow Miku:
Snow Bell Ver.!♥
|2015 marks the sixth anniversary of Snow Miku, and this year designs were once again collected on the piapro content site and voted for by the fans during a NicoNico live broadcast! The theme this year was ‘Winter plants in Hokkaido’, and the winning entry was by Taran, who created a wonderful, fairy-like Snow Miku for fans around the world to enjoy as a Nendoroid. Rabbit Yukine is also back again this year in a lovely leafy design by Hayuki! ♪
Various optional parts that add even more botanical beauty to the pair are also included!
She’s so adorable!! ヽ(●´∀｀)○´∀｀)ﾉ
She really does look like a cute little fairy Miku! ♡
Taran’s lovely illustration has been transformed into a figure beautifully, with her outfit looking so cute, – just look at those lily of the valley hair accessories! Plus the headset made from leaves! ♪
Although my personal favorite has to be the giant leaf she is holding over her! It adds even more to the fairy look – and even the drip of water about to fall down has been faithfully included! (*´Д｀)
Rabbit Yukine has a cute winking expression and a lily of the valley lamp! ♡
It’s quite a playful expression in contrast to the slightly formal looking outfit! He looks a bit like he’s there as Miku’s escort! What a gentleman!
As I’m sure most of you know, the reason Miku was revealed yesterday was because the Snow Miku streetcar was revealed! ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ
It looks like the snow has already started in Hokkaido!
How ideal for a Snow Miku reveal!
The dark streetcar is covered in bright Snow Miku illustrations and photos of the Nendoroid, and the contrast makes her stand out so clearly! The lilies of the valley and her design give such a fairytale-like look to the design! ★
It looks like a cute ‘V’-shape smile is also included!
Just looking at it warms my heart! ♡
I love the illustration of her sitting on a leaf!!
Just walking around the streetcar makes me wish I was really been there!
Inside the streetcar, Snow Miku was on display! ♡
The fully painted prototype at that! ♪
Rabbit Yukine as well, of course! (/ω＼)
Not to mention…!!
The Nendoroid was not the only figure on display! There was a reason for Max Factory’s Akane Eiseihei to be in Sapporo as well…!
figma Snow Miku: Snow Bell ver. was also on display!!
So cuuuuute!!! (●´ω｀●)
Those sparking eyes and slightly open mouth are great! The expression is rather different to the Nendoroid’s, giving her a whole different charm! ♪
Here is a shot with the two of them together! ♥︎
I’m told those who came by took loads of photos!
Thanks to everyone who came to take a look! (｡･ω･)ﾉﾞ
The figma also features on the other side of the streetcar! ☆
By the way! This streetcar isn’t just decorated for show, the car will be running as normal from the 17th November 2014 to the 29th March 2015!
All announcements in the car during this time period will be by Saki Fujita – Miku’s voice actress! ♪
A treat for the eyes and the ears! ♡
