Unlike her fearsome first appearance, Snowgon here is presented as a friendly and upbeat person.

Eventually all three stop fighting and quickly make up after Mefilas summons forth a dramatic truce.

The first known figure of Snowgon was released several times by Bullmark with a different paint job for each release. They all mostly share the same design and detail, with the first two releases being made in 1972 and the latest being as recent as 2011. All except for the 2000 release which featured more vibrant colors, including yellow and green, were painted with a combination of white, blue, and red, being somewhat but not completely show-accurate. The key differences being the distribution of each color (e.g., the 1972 releases featured more red while the 2011 release had more blue with darker colors). Each release has about five points of articulation and stands at approximately 8 inches in height.
More recently, in 2013, a figure of Snowgon was released by Bandai as a part of the Ultra Monster 500 series. The figure has two points of articulation and a show-accurate paint job. She is #30 in the series and stands at 5 inches in height.
