Snow Miku (Character Vocal Series 01: Hatsune Miku)

Today’s Main Feature!

Hello everyone!! Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

Without further ado, today I’m going to be taking a look at the
1/7th Scale Snow Miku!!❄

The very first scale figure of Snow Miku from Good Smile Company! Snow Miku was designed as a mascot character for Winter in Hokkaido, and this version was illustrated by MONQ in a lovely dynamic pose that has now been carefully converted into a figure with the utmost attention to detail!

Her long, flowing hair makes use of semi-transparent parts for a lovely icy appearance, the snowflake patterns all over the design have been faithfully included, and the sculpt has been carefully tuned to ensure the figure looks great from all sorts of different angles! She has a determined, cool expression on her face with a slight blush on her cheeks and glossy lips that bring out her feminine charm for fans to enjoy in their collection!

The winter songstress speeding through the snow!

A figure made as a part of the Good Smile Company 15th Anniversary, Snow Miku is available for preorder soon! It’s really hard to capture the dynamic posing of the figure with just one photo, so I’m going to start off with a quick animated GIF to see her from all sorts of different angles! (●´Д`●)ノ


She looks ready to jump to life!!

Let’s stop here for a second and have a quick reminder about who exactly Snow Miku is! (。・ω・)ノ゙

Who is Snow Miku?
Snow Miku is a character designed to enliven the Winter of Hokkaido. She was originally created due to a snow sculpture of Hatsune Miku made at the 2010 Sapporo Snow Festival, and has been a part of the ‘SNOW MIKU’ festival in Hokkaido every year since. The 2017 theme for Snow Miku is ‘Stars and Constellations of the Winter Hokkaido’.

Anyway, let’s get back to the scale figure!

This stylish version of Snow Miku sliding down a snowy slope on her own twin-tailed hair was illustrated by MONQ! Here is the original illustration!

The illustration and figure have a very cool and composed look, but at the same time the expression has a kind of innocent beauty that really makes her stand out!! (‘-‘*)(,_,*)(‘-‘*)(,_,*)

When we take a closer look at the figure, you’ll notice that not only does it capture the bold, dynamic pose and amazing size of the twin-tails, but it also captures the charm and ladylike curves of Miku herself for fans to enjoy!

This Miku is just filled with so much hidden potential – the closer you look the more amazing the attention to detail becomes! Personally I adore the way her legs have been sculpted! The curves of her thighs, knees and calves are simply beautiful!! (੭ु ›ω‹ )੭ु⁾⁾♡

The sculpt is one thing, but the metallic paintwork on the skirt and color differences along the pleats of her skirt also bring out such lovely detail to her outfit!

The dynamic pose of the figure also leads to lots of little openings in her outfit where you can get a peek of bare skin! ★

The areas that can’t be directly seen from the front of the figure are of course faithfully detailed, so be sure to spin her around and enjoy her from all sorts of different angles! (∩・∀・)∩


▲ The strands on the end of her scarf are sculpted with a sense of movement!


▲ If you look close you can get a peek between her skirt and top here! (/ω\)

But perhaps the part I want to write the most about is Miku’s face! ♥


It’s just so adorable!!

Those lovely sharp eyes capture such a strong will in them, and the short eyebrows have such  strength put into and the slight gloss on her lips… there is something so determined and confident about her!! At the same time the slight blush on her cheeks also keeps the cute and ladylike side to her for the best of both worlds!

Looking at her hair from the side captures the milky, transparent appearance very nicely! You also get a good feeling for the impressive size!


▲ I’m not sure if ‘milky’ is the best description here, but I think you know what I mean!

The base features a design similar to the background from the original illustration, with various snowflake patterns and more! ε=(。・д・。)

▲ It also has a bit of a smoky appearance which suits the cold, ice-like appearance of the figure!

Be sure to add the snowy electronic diva to your collection!
