Nendoroid 97: Snow Miku

Nendoroid 97: Snow Miku

Note: I will be using the word “snow” and “yuki” a lot for this review. ^^

To celebrate the recently-released Nendoroid Snow Miku: Snow Playtime Edition, I have written a special review of the original Nendoroid Snow Miku. Actually, Nendoroid Snow Miku was released to commemorate the Snow Miku sculpture on last year’s 61st Sapporo Snow Festival – yes, in similar fashion as the upcoming Snow Playtime Edition. ^^

Well then, without further ado, let’s dig into the full review after the break. ^^

Here is how the packaging looks like against the original Nendoroid Hatsune Miku packaging.

In a glance, the packaging are not really that different against each other, right? However, Snow Miku has some glossy snowflakes printing on her box (beside “Hatsune Miku” writing) that gives it a feeling of beautiful winter season. ^^

Body parts and accessories

Anyway, the following is a listing of Nendoroid Snow Miku’s body parts and accessories:

  • 3 face plates
  • 2 right arms
  • 1 left arm
  • 3 right palms
  • 1 left palm
  • 1 right leg
  • 2 left legs
  • 1 frozen leek (!!!!)

Yes, if we compare it with the original Nendoroid Hatsune Miku, Yuki Miku has similar parts and accessories. So what are the differences between them? (aside from the general color theme)

Snowflakes are printed onto her hair

The first one is her hair. Yuki Miku’s hair are made from some kind of semi-transparent plastic. Besides, she also has snowflakes printed into her hair. IMHO, these features make her hair looks glowing if you direct some lighting into it. ^^

Glimmering silver coating on some parts

The second thing that differentiate Yuki Miku with her original counterparts is the glimmering silver coating on some parts of her body that really give a feeling of snowy winter. IMHO, these shimmering parts are really a cool addition to Nendoroid Snow Miku, compared with the original Nendoroid Hatsune Miku. ^^

Well then, let’s see some default poses of Yuki Miku:

By the way, did you know about figma Winter Accessories that came with a set of scarf and glove parts for Nendoroid (and figma)? Apparently, it looks nice to be used by Yuki Miku-chan. ^^

Well, since today is Valentine’s day … Yuki Miku-chan wants to give a present to her beloved one too. So … who is the lucky guy? ^^

Yuki Miku-chan looks embarrased there ...

Rin: ” Ganbatte, Miku-chan! (≧∇≦)/ ”
Luka: ” Go for it, Miku-chan! I am sure that he would be happy to receive the present. (>‿<) ”
Miku: ” O-o-okay then … I-I-I will give it a try … (´﹏`) ”

Danbo-kun!? .... and is it a chocolate milk!?

Danbo-kun!? .... and is it a chocolate milk!?

Miku: ” Since I cannot make any chocolate cake for you, this is what I could have thought of as a present. P-p-please accept it, Danbo-kun! (>‿<) ”
Danbo: ” ……. [°▴°] ”

LOL … so it turned out to be Danbo-kun who got a chocolate (milk) from Yuki Miku-chan. ^^

Well then, that’s about all my review on Nendoroid Snow Miku. Did you enjoy it, Nendonesian? Share your thought in the comment. ^^
