Hatsune Miku Gets Twinkly with New figma and Nendoroid Designs
Max Factory and Good Smile Company have revealed their designs for new figma and Nendoroid toys featuring the latest iteration of Snow Miku, an alternative version of Crypton Future Media’s Vocaloid virtual idol Hatsune Miku created to celebrate the Sapporo Snow Festival.
Both Max Factory’s figma toy (above) and Good Smile Company’s Nendoroid toy (below) use the official 2017 “Snow Miku Twinkle Snow Ver.” design. The figures are not yet available for pre-order. Instead the toys will initially be sold via a series of lottery style drawings in late November and December.
Additionally, a “Snow Miku Twinkle Snow Ver.” module will be added to Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Arcade Future Tone. The module is scheduled to be added to the arcade game in the 2nd half of December in 2016.
Finally, the Sapporo City Transportation Bureau has revealed a specially decorated train car featuring the 2017 Snow Miku design.
Both the exterior and interior of the car display Snow Miku themed artwork, and recordings by voice actress Saki Fujita (who provided the vocal samples that create Miku’s voice) will provide narration for the train’s journeys through Sapporo City. This special train will run from November 21, 2017 – March 26, 2017.
All aboard the Snow Miku Express. Chugga chugga choo choo.
