2016’s Snow Miku Has Been Selected!


Hatsune Miku’s yearly theme of Snow Miku returns to form in the latest competition for design. After 4 designs went head to head in a battle for the hearts of fans, the decision came down to one themed for skis, snowboarding, and owls?

Owl and snowboards take the win!

Taking 35.5% of the votes and looking cute while doing it, the new Snow Miku 2016 will come in both Nendoroid and figma form next year from Good Smile Company!  Additionally, the partner bunny will be joining Snow Miku 2016 after he was decided on a 54.5% vote majority (no confusion of that winner).

The artwork for Snow Miku 2016 also shows her coming with a snow board, skis, a removable scarf, and possibly the option of having her have both, single, or no (double?) twin-tails showing.  But all of that is still speculation as we’ll have to wait to see her final product.

Are you excited for the winner and will you be purchasing a Snow Miku 2016? Let us know in the comments below. Or join us in discussing figures in our Memorabilia Forum!
