Today’s exciting announcement reveal comes from VOLKS, the creators of the largely popular original Hatsune Miku Dollfie Dream. However, this time around, they’re not announcing just an accessory outfit: They have an all new complete Snow Miku Dollfie Dream in the works in collaboration with the upcoming Snow Miku 2015 winter festival.
The figure is styled in the classic and highly recognizable Snow Miku 2011 design, featuring earmuff headphones, a scarf and mittens. As with the previous Miku DD, this figure comes in at 1/3 scale in height, making her quite tall. As a premium offering of the Dollfie Dream line, the asking price is 65,000 Yen ($550).
Early Presales Orders:
Attendees of the Snow Miku 2015 event in Sapporo can have a chance at reserving and receiving this figure before anyone else. Presales orders at the event can be placed on-site of the Snow Miku festival between February 7th and February 11th, although reservation quantities will be limited. The expected shipment date for presales orders is January 2016.
Normal web-sales will open starting February 14th, and will end on April 12th, 2015. Normal web-sales orders are expected to ship in June 2016.

Just like they do every year, Good Smile Company has posted the rankings for the previous year’s most popular blog articles, and their top selling products. Hatsune Miku dominated the top 3 sales rankings in 2013, but she faced some serious competition in 2014, thanks to popular franchises such as Attack on Titan and Kantai Collection.
Despite the setbacks from the competition, Hatsune Miku managed to secure the #3 spot for 2014’s most popular GSC figure sales and blog post. She did not have a top ranking blog position in 2013. Credits for both wins in 2014 goes to the Nendoroid Snow Miku: Magical Snow Version. You can check the full rankings for yourself at Kahotan’s blog, where she also teases a nendoroid calendar that will be given out at the upcoming Winter Wonder Festival.
