Figma Snow Miku



The Winter Songstress is joining the figma series this Winter!
- Good Smile Company

In this instalment of the Character Figure series here at Project JeForceX, we take a look at Figma Snow Miku, a modified and themed version of the popular virtual diva loved by millions of folks across the globe.

Turntable Look at the Figure

Starting from this instalment, I have decided to capture more turntable photos (up to 6) for a better representation instead of the usual 4 photos which show the front, left, back, and right side of a Character Figure.

Figma Snow Miku is both gorgerous and cute at the same time.

The figma support stand is vital for Miku-chan to strike this signature pose.

The center of gravity is skewed towards the front, causing Miku-chan to fall face-down and kiss the floor right in front of her if she has to strike this pose without the figma support stand.

Unlike the past Character Figures which I have featured such as Figma Emiya Kiritsugu and Figma Eren Yeager which have matt paint finishing, Figma Snow Miku is painted with a glossy finish which bounces off any light shone onto her.

The camera angle of these photos are captured at a slightly higher than usual which makes a female character look much more feminine than its intended design. Camera angles play a very important factor in media production.

Close-up Look at the Figure

Taking a closer look at Miku-chan, we can see her tie and scarf decorated with Snow Flake Sprites.

Her hair is semi-translucent which allows light to enter and it is also decorated with the Snow Flake Sprite!

How would you name and describe this lovely pose? ^^;
I am unable to come up with a name or description for it! >_<

Of all the suggested poses shown on the product packaging, this is one of my favorites! <3

Where did you get this cutie? I've seen her on Amazon for about $70, but I'm not sure if I should risk it. With those third party sellers, you never know if you'll get a bootleg or the real thing.

Hi,

I bought this Figma Snow Miku directly from the Good Smile Company Online Shop -
http://goodsmile-global.ecq.sc/
- for about $42. Unfortunately, the sales period has already ended during Wonder Festival (Feb 2014) as it was an event exclusive.

While seasoned collectors keep their figures Mint In Sealed Box (MISB) for trading purposes, $70 is the current market price for resale. Online shopping, especially from re-sellers, is always risky. One should do as much research on the seller as possible before making a purchase.

Here is a re-seller link which I found from my favorite online shop -
http://www.amiami.com/top/detail/detail?gcode=FIGURE-004195
- this item has already been checked by AmiAmi Online Shop itself and it is no bootleg. ;)

Grab it as quickly as you can before someone else does!
