Yes, this is a one-week old news, but anyway … yes, as you have known, GSC has updated their Wonderful Hobby Life for You (WHL4U) website with information and the exclusive products line-up for the upcoming Winter WonFes 2014.
Well, one of the most anticipated product is obviously the Nendoroid Snow Miku: Magical Snow version, and she is finally official!
Snow Miku is here to bring you some Winter magic!
2014 is Snow Miku’s 5th anniversary year, and once again designs were added to the piapro website and the most popular was voted for on a live NicoNico Broadcast! The winning design of the 2014 Snow Miku was by dera_fury, who created a playful Snow Miku filled with magical girl charm! The pet to be included was a separate competition, and the selected design was ‘Rabbit Yukine’ illustrated by nekosumi – the two of them have now been transformed into the 2014 Nendoroid Snow Miku for a Winter that fans are sure to remember!
Included with the Nendoroid is a special spell book stand, her magic wand, effect parts, a magic circle as well as sitting parts are also all included! She even comes with special arm parts to display her hugging Rabbit Yukine instead of just holding her! All the parts you’ll need for a truly magical experience with Snow Miku!!
Witch Miku + the spell book + the rabbit + magical accessories = Overload of cuteness!
The much awaited winter version of Hatsune Miku has been anticipated by the Nendoroid collectors and the virtual diva’s fans alike. The design contest was finished a few months ago, and she was finally revealed last week.
Being announced as Nendoroid Snow Miku: Magical Snow version, the Nendoroid looks magically cute and cutely magical as well.
For those who have pre-ordered Nendoroid Snow Miku: Strawberry White Kimono version, well, your wait is over at last, Nendonesian. XD
Yes, after getting delayed from last month’s release schedule, the lovely snow lady finally gets the shipping dates by GSC: July 25th. Okay, it still about more than 2 weeks away, but at least she will not be delayed again. XD
What do you think, Nendonesian?
So the Nico Nico Live Broadcast by GSC dubbed as “Hatsune Miku no Jikan” has been broadcasted earlier. There are a couple of Miku stuff there, but we are going to focus to the Nendoroid Snow Miku: 2014 version first.
As you may have known, the live broadcast also served as an election to choose the base design for next year’s Nendoroid Snow Miku. In the end of the live election session, design #8 got the most votes there.
Wearing the witch hat and the cape/coat with crystal staff, she looks pretty
plain classic to my taste, but I guess the voters might see her with “simple is the best” in mind. XD
Meanwhile, the election also voted for the best pet to accompany the next year’s snow diva. The design getting the most votes is design #7 – the rabbit fairy. XD
Well, what do you think about the design, Nendonesian?
Since 2012, it is a kind of tradition to hold an annual contest to determine Nendoroid Snow Miku’s design with a defined theme. Yep, Nendoroid Snow Miku: Fluffy Coat version and Strawberry White Kimono version are products of that contest in the last two years.
Fast-forward to today, and we are facing the contest run for Nendoroid Snow Miku: 2014 version and this year’s theme is magical girl and pet – it certainly reminds me of that particular magical girl and her contact-obsessed companion. XD
Well, what do you think, Nendonesian?
Wow! The box for Nendoroid Snow Miku: Strawberry White Kimono version looks very premium-ish!
Yep, Mikatan has just posted her (p)review of this upcoming Nendoroid which is scheduled to be released in a few days, starting from the Snow Sapporo Festival on February 9th and then Winter WonFes 2013 on February 10th.
Nothing new about the parts and accessories as they have been revealed many weeks ago, but it will not hurt to take another glance at this lovely Nendoroid in Mikatan’s blog post below.

Yep, Nendoroid Snow Miku: Strawberry White Kimono version finally gets a proper official announcement by GSC – although the official pics are not new for us.
Snow Miku is visiting again this Winter, this time in a white kimono!
Designs for the 2013 Snow Miku were submitted by fans to the piapro website and then a winner was chosen by viewers during a NicoNico Live Broadcast. The winning entry was an illustration of Snow Miku with a slightly more mature air, wearing a beautiful white kimono – which has now been transformed into a Nendoroid!
Her cotton veil can be removed, and she comes with two different hair styles to choose from when it is removed – you can display her with either her trademark twintails, or instead with her hair tied up. Sitting parts are also included for a more relaxed pose, and she also comes a number of items for a snowy day, including an umbrella, a toothpick and a snow bunny.
The snow lady is priced at 4000 Yen and scheduled for February (available at WHL4U 17 booth at WonFes and several other venues) and June for pre-order from Good Smile Online Shop.
Details regarding the availability can be read in the official product page.
Well, are you going to get this cute and lovely lady, Nendonesian? ^^
While I was gone out for almost a full day on Christmas Eve yesterday, it looked like my Snow Mikus did not want to be left out – they hosted a mini party for themselves!
They even invited one of the hottest Nendoroid guest star: Miss Super Sonico to sing the popular Christmas song “All I Want for Christmas is You” for them. XD
*ahem* Anyway, in behalf of all admins and contributors of Nendonesia, I would like to say:
MERRY CHRISTMAS! May the timeless message of Christmas fill your heart and home with joy today and throughout the coming year.
Well then, hopefully your Nendoroid could also join your Christmas party today. XD
Yep, Nendoroid Snow Miku 2013 has got her real name – Nendoroid Snow Miku: Strawberry White Dress version, or if you prefer the Japanese pronunciation: Nendoroid Yuki Miku: Ichigo Shiromuku version [ねんどろいど 雪ミク いちご白無垢Ver.].
Either way, Mikatan has just posted a blog post containing a preview as well as a few tidbits about this super-adorable Nendoroid.
It seems that the annual Snow Miku festival at Sapporo, Japan has begun as various pics and design of Snow Miku 2013 is starting to appear there.
Nendoroid Snow Miku: 2013 version also made her debut in form of some official photos displayed as the exterior skin of a train there.
