OK, before we get into the review, allow me to explain what this “Special Review” is all about. A special review is a review which is created either by request, occassional condition, or used for unusual purposes, including reviews written by guest authors.
Regarding our first special review here for Nendoroid Snow Miku: Snow Playtime Edition (Tanoshii Yukiasobi Edition), it is requested personally by Stephen A.Q. He asked me to take photos and review his newly arrived snow fairy, because he couldn’t wait to unbox it and wanted to “record” the unboxing moment in a form of a review – I know he did have other purposes for this as well. (￣▽￣)
In any case, slide past the break to view the complete review. ^^
First, let’s see how the packaging looks like.
Whoaa … it is bigger and heavier than other regular Nendoroid – looks really special as a WonFes product! I guess the additional weight came from the included ice tray and the Hachune-faced snowman. ^^
Unlike other regular Nendoroid container, Snow Miku SPE’s container consists of 2 stack of containers, one for the Nendoroid body, parts, and accessories, and the other one is used to hold the ice tray. In order to make sure that the container stack hold its content firmly, it is sealed with a lot of tapes on every side of the stack. There is also a small wire used to tie both container, which makes the whole container harder to be removed. Talk about special treatments for a special product here. ^^
Here is the complete listing of parts and accessories included in the package:
- 3 face plates (one attached)
- An optional hair (to be used with Hachune face)
- A right arm (attached, with movable joint)
- A left arm (attached, with movable joint)
- 3 right palms (one attached)
- 2 left palms (one attached)
- Two headsets (one attached)
- A scarf
- A transparent/clear-colored leek
- A Petit-sized snowman with Hachune-face
- A Petit-sized leek (to be attached to the snowman)
- A plug-in-the-back stand and base
- A quick guide
- An ice tray with Nendoroid Hatsune Miku and Hachune Miku sculpt/pattern
Whoa … that’s a pretty lengthy listing of parts and accessories! Yes, Snow Miku SPE surely packs a lot of stuff there for you to play with. ^^
So … what’s so special about Nendoroid Snow Miku: Snow Playtime Edition? Here are some special features of this adorable snow fairy. ^^
The first special feature is … the super movable joints (obviously). Similar to Nendoroid Saber: Super Movable Edition, Snow Miku SPE has joints on her neck, shoulder, elbows, wrists, chest, hip, and knee. Despite its similarities on articulation, Snow Miku SPE’s joint build looks better and feel more solid. I don’t encounter any problems when moving her body parts around. ^^
The next special feature is the Petit-sized snowman with Hachune face. The head part of the snowman is removable, and you can swap it with a Nendoroid Petit. It looked really cute when we tried to swap its body and head with Petit Snow Miku’s. ^^
It is interesting to see the winter-themed leek with clear/transparent color. If I recall correctly, the original Nendoroid Snow Miku also has this kind of leek, but with partially-clear color. ^^
This bonus is one of the most interesting benefits from the Snow Miku SPE package. I bet there are some Nendonesian who ordered Snow Miku SPE for the ice tray. ^^
Well then, that’s all about the special features of Snow Miku SPE (from my perspective). Let’s see some of her pics below:
Well, since my time was pretty limited when taking the photos for this review, I could not take many shots for the “epic scene” as my other usual reviews. Nevertheless, I still managed to get several interesting shots there. Here they are:
So … is she worth to purchase? Seeing the massive amount of parts and bonus included in the package, I would say YES, she is worth to buy. If you have plenty of money to spare, grab the February (WonFes) version, otherwise, pre-order the web shop version which would be released on June.
What do you think about Nendoroid Snow Miku: Snow Playtime Edition, Nendonesian? Have you secured your June pre-order? … or you might already have the February version in your possession? ^^
In any case, I will write a more in-depth review once my June pre-order arrives later. See you on my next review, Nendonesian! ^^
Note: Thanks to Stephen A.Q. for providing the Nendoroid Snow Miku: Snow Playtime Edition and Nendoroid Petit Snow Miku to be used in this review.
