Nendoroid and figma Snow Miku 2018!

Hello everyone!! Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

Today I’m going to be taking a look at the designs for the Nendoroid and figma of the the 2018 Snow Miku! The theme this time around was “Winter and Animals of Hokkaido”! We received a huge number of entries, but the eventual winner was none other than this lovely design!

Thanks to everyone who voted during the live broadcast or online!!

Let’s see how the design looks when transformed into Nendoroid and figma size! (∩・∀・)∩

Nendoroid Snow Miku: Crane Priestess Ver.!

Snow Miku is all dressed up in a priestess outfit! She looks so majestic and proud while still remaining so very cute!! (‘-‘*)(,_,*)(‘-‘*)(,_,*)

She also comes with a variety of parts that are all amazing detailed, including the kagura bell and fan above!

The hood can also be removed as you can see in the photo below! ♪

figma Snow Miku: Crane Priestess ver.!

The Snow Miku priestess, dancing in the snow as a figma!

Just imagine all the elegant poses you can form with this figma! The expression on her face has a lovely gentle feel to it, but also adds a bit of a mysterious air…

▲ The designs on the sleeves and the gradient on her legs have been carefully included!

Aren’t they beautiful?!

Both will also comes with lots more optional parts as well as alternate expressions, but you’ll have to wait and see what those are! (*´ェ`*)

The reason these have been revealed is that they are currently on display at the Snow Miku Streetcar 2018 Private Viewing! ♪

The project planner for Miku, Hamako (@gsc_hama) was away on a trip to Shanghai so Akane Eiseihei (@akane_mxf ) and myself came down to Hokkaido to see the streetcar and take some photos for today’s blog! (`・ω・´)ゞ

▲ The various Miku photos and illustrations on the streetcar!

The design not only features photos of both the Nendoroid and figma, but also includes the 2018 Snow Miku main illustration drawn by Yasumo-san! ♪

▲She has a more grown-up look compared to the normal Miku!

The overall design has an elegant yet cute look with a bit of a Japanese-style design to match this year’s Snow Miku! ♡

▲The stylish colors with golden highlights make for a lovely design!

The inside was also filled with Miku-san! ヽ(゚∀゚ヽ 三 ノ゚∀゚)ノ

Even Snow Mikudayo- came to take a look!☆

I even managed to capture her amazing movements on camera! ♥

This streetcar will actually be used in Sapporo, Hokkaido from the 27th November 2017 through to the 27th March 2018! Be sure to take a ride or even just a look if you are in the area!! ε-(o´ω`o)

A Look at Some of the WonFes Summer 2017 Products: Part 2

ONLY 12 WORKING DAYS TO WONFES!

Hello everyone!! Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

It might still be three weeks until WonFes, but looking at just the amount of working days left makes you realize how very close that is! There isn’t much time left to prepare!!

Today I’m going to be going the continuation of the Suwabe’s last blog and take a look at some of the items that will be on sale at Wonder Festival 2017 Summer!Today I’ll be focusing on these three items! ヽ(゚∀゚ヽ 三 ノ゚∀゚)ノ

Left: Wonda-chan Next Door Project FILE04: DANGERDROP Ver.
Center: Nendoroid Reimu Hakurei 2.0
Right: Nendoroid Yuri Katsuki: Free Skating Ver.

 

Let’s take a closer look at each of them! ♪

◆ Nendoroid Reimu Hakurei 2.0 

From the popular game series by Team Shanghai Alice, the ‘Touhou Project’ comes an all-new upgraded Nendoroid of Reimu Hakurei! She comes with three face plates including a cheerful standard expression, a more serious expression for combat scenes as well as a cute, relaxed expression.

Reimu comes complete with her prayer rod and charm cards allowing you to pose her in battle scenes from the series, as well as a cup of tea, a donation box and kneeling parts to display her more relaxed side. Enjoy all sorts of different sides of Reimu in your collection!

The priestess of Hakurei Shine is back in an upgraded version!

This time she comes with a large set of optional parts too!

The Japanese-style umbrella can be held in her hand like so! A part of her hair has been specially made removable to make sure the handle doesn’t get in the way of posing! ★

The little gap in her outfit that shows off her belly button has been sculpted with a little billow as if the wind is blowing along it! (・∀・)

The tied-up part of her hair is fitted with a Nendoroid joint allowing you to match the hair up with various different poses!

The inner packaging looks like this! ♪

The yin-yang round base is included as a bonus with purchases of Nendoroid Reimu 2.0 made at events! More details available here!

As you can see she comes with various different face plates to enjoy all sorts of different sides of her personality! Here is a more combat orientated pose! ♡

▲ The charms can be connected to the base like so!

 The figure is also of course Nendoroid No.700 and even the box for the figure has lots of special details to celebrate #700! ε=(。・д・。)

In addition, this B2 Tapestry of Reimu Hakurei illustrated by ideolo will also be available at the event, so be sure to consider it too! ☆

⇒ More Details Here!

 

◆ Nendoroid Yuri Katsuki: Free Skating Ver. 

From the popular anime series ‘YURI!!! on ICE’ comes a figure of Japan’s figure skating athlete Yuri Katsuki wearing his free skating “Yuri on Ice” outfit from the series! He comes with two face plates including a standard gentle expression as well as a charming smile.

Yuri has fully articulated arm parts, and the iconic stuffed toy shaped like a rice ball that was thrown down into the rink is also included to help you fully reproduce his skating performance in Nendoroid size! He also comes with new arm parts for use on Nendoroid Victor Nikiforov as well as a Makkachin tissue box case! If you pose the two of them together you can even have them posed as if in the kiss and cry area waiting for results! Enjoy the master and student in your collection!

“I’ll skate even better than Victor imagines!”

The glittery appearance of his outfit and the wonderful blend of colors have all been captured on the Nendoroid beautifully! ♪

▲Even from the back you can see the way his hair is all pulled back!

This package is also rather special with snowflakes with a special print all over the design! (*´ω`*)

Accessories are as you can see below! He also comes with a special part for use together with Nendoroid Victor Nikiforov!

Along with the gentle standard smile, he also comes with an cute smile with a slight blush and closed eyes! (´□`。)

The riceball-shaped plushie can be held in his hands like so!! So cute!! The Makkachin tissue box case can also be held by making use of the same hand parts! ♥

Another thing to note is that there is actually a tissue coming out of the Makkachin tissue box case!

Unfortunately I wasn’t able to get my hands on a Nendoroid Victor for this blog, but he will be on sale later next month, so be sure to display him with the tissue box too!! You can find a photo of this over on the GSC product page here!

 

◆ Wonda-chan Next Door Project FILE04: DANGERDROP Ver. 

The ideal WonFes souvenir!

As usual the amount of detail on the little figure is absolutely stunning! Just look at the intricate high-pressure water cannon! ★

▲ Mechanical x Cute Girl looking as amazing as ever!

For anyone unfamiliar with the Wonda-chan NEXT DOOR Project, here is a quick summary of the project!

The illustrations of Wonda-chan used on the official WonFes guidebook are always done by a different illustrator for each event, and for the past few events a ‘NEXT DOOR’ Wonda-chan illustration – a second illustration that is done by an up-and-coming illustrator – has been done together with the main Wonda-chan! This secondary Wonda-chan is then made into a figure, creating the perfect souvenir for each Wonder Festival event! Good Smile Company takes part as the manufacturer for the figure!

Well? What do you think?! 

I hope there is something that tickles your fancy this WonFes! If you are able to make it to the event be sure you don’t leave empty handed!! ☆

As usual we will also be updating Facebook, Twitter and more with all sorts of new releases and info, so even if you can’t make it to the event itself be sure to stay tuned for all sorts of figure updates! (●‘∀‘●)ノ
