——Description from Manufacturer——
Snow Miku is ready to play until the ski slopes melt away!
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 Nendoroid includes three expressions including an energetic smiling expression, a playful giggling expression and a chibi expression with tightly shut eyes. 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, skis with ski poles and goggles! A scarf as well as snowball fight parts are also included to ensure that Miku has a great time in the snow!
An alternate body part connected to the skis is also included to display her in action, and a special snowy white base with blue snowflakes is also included to bring out the Winter atmosphere! Rabbit Yukine is included once again with his very own pair of goggles and a cute rabbit-eared hat! Be sure to add her to your collection and enjoy playing in the Winter with this year’s Snow Miku!
*Please note that each hat is carefully hand-knitted to ensure it is nice and warm, but this means that each hat will differ slightly in shape. Additionally, the wooden buttons on the hat are made from natural wood which means each button will have a slightly different texture.
Snow Miku is a character designed to enliven the Winter of Hokkaido. She was originally created due to a snow sculpture of Hatsune Miku being made at the 2010 Sapporo Snow Festival, and has been a part of the ‘SNOW MIKU’ festival in Hokkaido every year since. The 2016 theme for Snow Miku is ‘Winter Sports in Hokkaido’.
