Nendoroid Snow Miku photo
Galleries from Mamitan and Akiba Hobby
The upcoming Nendoroid Snow Miku (Snow Bell ver.) is a great design - one that works better as a Nendoroid than as a figma, I think. The proportions look just right as a Nendo, emphasizing her fancy head gear and cutting down... read feature
