Review: Snow Miku Playtime.

Image
Hello. Today I am reviewing Snow Miku, Queen of The Frozen Hell and Leader of the Snow Demons.
Actually, I am kidding about the last two part, as Miku is an avatar/mascot for the Vocaloid voice synthesiser program.
She has plenty of different incarnation in music videos and figure form, one of them is Snow Miku which is a limited release Nendoroid. This second also limited version of Snow Miku called Playtime/Asobi featuring poseable joints among other extras.

Image
The box of Snow Miku Playtime is a bit more wider than usual Nendo boxes, with a big window to show what is inside. The outside also has nice pictures and design to show what else is inside you can't see from the window.

Image
Opening the box, Snow Miku is securely packed in the tray. Snow Miku includes 2 other faces and an extra hairpiece, 2 leeks in different sizes, a hand for the ice leeks, a pair of mittens, a scarf, the normal Miku headphones and a snowman. There's also another extra.

Image
An ice tray. The designs are normal Miku and Hachune Miku, word bubbles with snow and snowman image, a pair of leeks, and a name plaque saying "nendoroid yukimiku".
Image

The plastic is pretty soft and flexible. I tried making some ice and the result are pretty good, though the hard ice is still hard to get out of the tray. Also the leeks tend to be fragile and breaks easily. You can make other things than ice though. :P

On to the girl herself.
Image
The body is separated into several parts, and you will find that out yourself as you have take her apart to take out the plastic covering her. It is easy to do so, just be careful as her hair seems to be made of a soft material. Also as you do so, you'll find something interesting..I'll tell you later.
The engineering of posable Miku makes her seem to push out her buttocks though it's not really noticeable.
She comes with a stand though you don't really need it since you can balance Miku on her twintail, even on one leg.
Image
Unless you want to make a "hair blown by the wind" effect, the stand isn't really necessary.
The details on Miku are nicely done as any other Nendoroids, featuring the snow motifs on her hair, headphones(earmuffs?) and mittens.

The other faces included are shy..
Image

and Hachune.
Image

Which is also the same face as the snowman.
Image

The snowman can be separated at the head, so you could probably play around with some Nendo Petits with it. There is also a hole for you to insert the smaller leek.
Image

Miku has an extra hand to hold the leek.
Image
It is hard to exchange the hand because of the small size and Miku's overlong sleeve.
The same goes for the mittens, as they are soft. Also, the mittens can't hold the leek.
The scarf is easier to put on as you only have to detach the head.
Image

You could just not put the hand in and have Miku imitate MegaMan.
Image
"Rock Shoota!!"


And here's the interesting thing I found out; Snow Miku has removable panties, and with a blue ribbon design.
Image
Imagine the diorama you could do with it..

The ice is tray is basically a novelty but a very good one, while Playtime lives up to it's name with it's playful look. Definetely a good addition to Nendo and/or Miku collectors.
Meanwhile I am gonna go make some Miku shaped confections..:P
