Nendoroid Snow Miku: Fluffy Coat version and Nendoroid Akemi Homura: School Uniform version are Announced as Exclusives for Winter WonFes 2012

Umm …. this might sound like an old news for most of you, but well, for the sake of completeness, I will post the news nevertheless. XD

Nendoroid Snow Miku: Fluffy Coat version

Nendoroid Snow Miku: Fluffy Coat version

Yep, as the title said, the adorable Nendoroid Snow Miku: Fluffy Coat version is the first exclusive Nendoroid for the upcoming Winter WonFes. We have already posted a teaser of her a few weeks ago, but GSC decided to add a few more stuff to be included inside the pack: a Nendoroid Petit-sized snow sculpture of Hatsune Miku and a LED-equipped ice stage. Wow!

Dressed up for a night of fun in the snow!
As a commemoration product for the 63rd Sapporo Snow Festival, a special design for Snow Miku that was voted as the best design on the Piapro website has been made into a Nendoroid! She is wearing a lovely fluffy winter outfit which includes a ribbon with a beautiful jewel in the middle – a new, stylish design for Snow Miku!

She also comes with a mike stand that can also be turned into a shovel for a variety of different poses. A Nendoroid Petite sized snow sculpture of Miku made from clear plastic is also included, as well as an ice stage with LED lights which can light up the lovely sculpture for all to enjoy!

(The LED stage requires 3 AAA batteries to operate. Batteries are not included.)

But there is even more! She also comes with an extra fringe part that is wearing Madoka’s ribbon, a bow and arrow, wings and new arm parts that let you recreate the pose from one of the series’ famous key visuals. You can combine this Nendoroid with the standard Puella Magi Nendoroid of Homura to enjoy more variety than ever before!

Happy Birthday, Hatsune Miku!

Miku's birthday!? XD

Miku's birthday!? XD

Hatsune Miku was officially released on August 31, four years ago,  as a singing synthesizer with female persona. So … why 20th birthday instead of 4th? Well, when she was released back then on 2007, her personal data sheet mentioned that her age is 16, hence she turns 20 today. Apparently, as a virtual idol, Miku is forever 16, hence the correct statement is: Happy 4th Anniversary, Hatsune Miku! ^^

In order to celebrate Miku’s birthday, I have setup a simple, quick party for her earlier. Well, I apologize for the simple party – I promise to organize a proper party next time. XD
