Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)
B-But that means that the final weekend before WonFes has already come to an end!! I need to change my way of thinking… it’s not that there are only 7 days left… there are over 100 hours left! Lots of time to prepare!!
With the weekend closing in on us, it’s time for me to take a closer look at the Winter Wonder Festival 2015 products that will be sold at the WONDERFUL HOBBY LIFE FOR YOU!! 21 Booth!
More details can be found here: http://whl4u.jp/en/
Today I’m going to be taking a closer look at…
A Winter fairy summoned by the ring of a bell.
Snow Miku has reached its 6th anniversary this year, and once again this year’s design from piapro was decided by fans on the NicoNico Live Broadcast, and has been transformed into a Nendoroid! The theme this year was ‘Plant Life in Winter’, and the winning design was this fairy-like design by Taran! Rabbit Yukine is also included based on the adorable design by Hayuki!
The lily of the valley held by Rabbit Yukine can also be switched out and held by Miku instead! Various other plant-themed optional parts are also included, such as a large leaf for her to use as an umbrella, as well as some lily of the valley bells in the shape of a treble clef. A special lily of the valley base is also included, which actually includes ringing bells! She also comes with sitting parts, allowing for even more posing options for fans to enjoy!
This year’s Snow Miku has come out looking absolutely adorable!!
The outfit design has been preserved perfectly in Nendoroid size, and she even comes with all sorts of items with the theme of plant life – from Lily of the Valley flowers to Japanese rowan leaves! The delicate and light design of this year’s Miku is suited to the Nendoroid design very nicely!! ♡
The snowflakes in her hair accessories and hair have also been beautifully preserved as always, and the headset made in the image of foliage is also looking lovely! (‘-‘*)(,_,*)(‘-‘*)(,_,*)
Herhair makes use of translucent parts to create a semi-transparent effect!
Along with her standard smiling face, she also comes with this dazzling smile that could brighten up even the darkest of days! ♡
…!! (There are simply no words!!)
Taran-san designed this expression as well, and it is absolutely perfect for the little fairy Miku! It’s almost too cute to even be allowed!! ♥︎
That innocent smile could purify the most corrupt of things!!
In the photo above she is holding the Lily of the Valley bell made in the shape of a treble clef, but you can also swap it out for the Lily of the Bell lamp which is normally held by Rabbit Yukine!
Plus there is this expression showing off her top teeth!!
Another thing to note is that her twin tails and the flowers hair accessories are fitted with joints allowing you to match the movements to your pose! ♪
Rabbit Yukine is also included! ★
Yukine was first included with Snow Miku last year, but his popularity means he is back once again for 2015!
He has a winking expression which gives him a bit of a playful look! His cute outfit also makes him look very gentlemanly! (ﾟ∀ﾟ*)
This is how he looks from the back!
The ribbon is made in the image of a Lily of the Valley leaf!
Plus his round bushy tail is very cute!!
(The hole in his head is for his very own little stand which is also included!)
Before I go on with the optional parts…
Let’s first take a look at the packaging!
This time we have a rectangular box with gentle colors and a round window!!
The top is what makes it special!! ★
The box has a rather unique design, and opens up by twisting the two Lily of the Valley that are placed on the top!
It’s really very cute when you see it in person!!
The way it opens reminds me of opening candy which gets me even more excited! (●´ω｀●)ゞ
Anyway, let’s get back onto the review shall we! <○><○>
This is how the blister pack looks! Ignoring the biggest parts for now, you can see she comes with sitting parts, various expressions and a couple of hand parts… but the one thing that will grab anyone’s attention…
The Lily of the Valley Base!
A rather large base that Snow Miku can sit on rather comfortably! (/ω＼)
The very base of the leaf even has some melting snow to keep with the Winter theme! Even though it’s such a large base the attention to detail is still fantastic! ★
Plus the flowers have real bells inside them!! ♪
They make a lovely gentle ringing sound to match Miku perfectly!
The other rather large item included with her…
A leaf umbrella!! ★
With the giant left held above her head, Miku looks even more like a little fairy of the forest!
The very tip of the leaf has a drop of water… which is attached with a round joint, which means that you can change the angle that it’s falling at! (｡･ω･)ﾉﾞ
Plus as it is designed to be attached and removed, you don’t need to worry about it breaking! ♪
On that note, the little droplets at the end of her skirt are made from a soft material, so they are also very difficult to break accidentally!
Something seems different?!
That’s right! You even have the option of removing her cape for a slightly different appearance!! ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ
Without the cape you can see her lovely outfit all the way up to her neck!
As a side note… she comes with two cape parts – one standard one and one included to pose her with the leaf umbrella! (*´Д｀)=з
Simply pick the one that matches your posing better!
But there is still one more thing I need to show everyone!
The 2015 Snow Miku…
Comes with ball jointed arms!! (/ω＼)
That means that you can take more poses than ever before, and when the cape is removed you can really create all sorts of dynamic poses!★
The legs designed for the sitting pose can also be placed on the standard body to create some rather interesting poses! ♥︎
A brand new outfit to brighten up the Winter! ♡
