Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)
It’s finally that time of the year again!
Time For Snow Miku-san!
The 2016 theme for Snow Miku was ‘Hokkaido Winter Sports‘, and the final choice for both the Nendoroid and figma versions of 2016’s Snow Miku was made by Kotatsu Otogi-san! ♥︎
The design for Rabbit Yukine was also by Kotatsu Otogi!★
The winning design was decided during a live broadcast on the 22nd May 2015, where all the fans were able to voice their choice on which design should become Snow Miku 2016! Once again thanks to everyone who submitted designs as well as to everyone who took part in the selection process!!
The design this time was rather different due to the theme! How have the figure versions come out?!
Let’s take a look at the Nendoroid first! Sculpted by Good Smile Company’s Kataharaitashi!! (｡･ω･)ﾉﾞ
Nendoroid Snow Miku: Snow Owl Ver.
|Snow Miku has reached its 7th anniversary this year, and once again this year’s design from piapro was decided by fans during a NicoNico Live Broadcast, and has been transformed into a Nendoroid! The theme this year was ‘Winter Sports’, and the winning design was this active, playful design illustrated by Kotatsu Otogi!
The knitted hat made in the image of an owl has been included with the figure as an actual Nendoroid-size knitted hat. She also comes with a variety of sporty goods including a snowboard, skiis with skii poles and goggles!
Rabbit Yukine is included once again also with a pair of goggles and a cute rabbit-eared hat! An alternate body part connected to the skiis is also included to display her in action, and a few other parts related to Winter sports are also included! Be sure to add her to your collection and enjoy playing in the Winter with this year’s Snow Miku!
I want to go out and play with her in the snow!!
The Sporty Miku-san surrounded with all sorts of Winter sporting goods!
I can’t wait to take her out into the snow and enjoy a Winter date with her!! But perhaps the item that catches the eye the most is the knitted hat – not a hat made from PVC but one made from actual fabric in Nendoroid size!!! It looks so nice and warm! Yukine’s hat isn’t made from fabric, but it also looks nice and warm and fluffy!ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ
This is the alternate body that allows you to display her skiing together with Rabbit Yukine!! (●´ω｀●)
In addition to the Nendoroid, Max Factory will also be releasing a figma version!
figma Snow Miku: Snow Owl ver.
I can just imagine jumping around with them on the snow!
Just looking at that playful expression on her face makes me feel all excited! A taller version of this Miku sakes her look even more sporty than the Nendoroid version!
Her twintails this time around have a very dynamic appearance from the start, but seen she is perfect for action poses they are also fitted with joints that allow for more active poses like this! ₍₍ (ง ˙ω˙)ว ⁾⁾
As mentioned on Hamako’s Twitter, these two items are currently on display inside the Snow Miku Street Car in Hokkaido! ♥︎
Just like last year I asked for some photos from Hokkaido and Hamako sent them through!! Let’s take a look at this year’s Snow Car!! (๑•̀ㅂ•́)و✧
This year the design features not only photos of the Nendoroid and figma, but also the main visual illustration done by Mame no Moto! I know that I for one would get rather exciting seeing this driving around the city!!!
While the main colors of white and light blue keep that Winter feeling, the colorful snow flake patterns give it a really eye-catching design!! ☆
Then as if the cute street car wasn’t enough, these two figures were on display inside!!
Inside the car there are also SNOW MIKU 2016 event and figure adverts! (・∀・)σ
△ The adverts on the sides of the car are Snow Miku-related as well! ★
A DIVA Module of the new Snow Miku too!!
Once she is available you’ll be able to enjoy the module at all Project Diva arcade machines!! (｀・ω・´)ゞ
The module is scheduled for December 2015!
Keep your eyes on the Weekly Diva Station for the latest updates!★
Plus… this year there was a special guest who made her debut at the street car…
Snow Miku Dayo-!
Nendoroid Snow Miku-san has finally been seen in her full size!!
She even managed to get her hands on a Nendoroid Snow Miku Dayo- which is scheduled to release next month!!
I can’t wait to meet her in person!!
I’m sure she will come down to Tokyo at some stage for me to say hello!! (/ω＼)
This streetcar will be running in Hokkaido from the 22nd November 2015 until the 27th March 2016! ♪
As before, all the announcements in the train will also be switched to Miku’s voice actor, Saki Fujita-san! ♡
Please note the figures were only on display for one day, not while the train is running!
