The Parallel of Haruhii

July 30, 2009

The limited edition of Suzumiya Haruhi no Heiretsu (The Parallel of Haruhi Suzumiya) for the Nintendo Wii system comes with three figures of the SOS-dan girls dressed in the attire that they sport over the course of the game. I managed to snag myself the limited edition box while at Otakon in the dealer room.

While I unfortunately don’t own a Japanese Wii to play the game on, the figures themselves were worth the asking price, at least in my rabid Haruhi fanboy mindset (that is doing its best right now to justify/ignore the current Endless Eight trolling by KyoAni). I might eventually obtain a cracked Wii and try my hand at the game. In the meantime though, I can admire the figures.

Back That Loot Up

July 7, 2009

After a hectic week in Japan, followed by a month-long convalescence in a hospital in China, its good to finally be back stateside. I stumbled, jet-lagged to holy hell, back into my apartment, to be greeted by a nice stack of boxes (kudos to my roommate for bringing it in), of all the loot I had ordered this past month and was unfortunately not home to welcome. Fear not, my children, for your father has come home safe and sound!

Did you miss me, my lovelies? Well, Arnie probably didn’t, he was too busy declaring states of emergencies in the black hole of money known as the Kaleefoynyah Ecahnohmee!

Haruhi Extravaganza!

May 7, 2009

Part of my loot this month were the 1/8-scale Max Factory Haruhi and Mikuru Gekisou versions from The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. An amazing one-two punch of figures here, and I am also anxiously awaiting the arrival of Yuki to complete the set.

Collection Snapshot: Figmas

April 30, 2009

This idea was taken from a few of the good folks at DannyChoo. A few of the members of the awesome community there posted their Figma and/or Nendoroid collection, and I felt compelled to put my personal collection of Figmas up yet. I haven’t quite hit the magical 2-0 in my number of Figmas, but that will change when I receive my Haruhi summer uniform version and my Kagamiku Figma early next month, God willing.

Here is an overhead view of all of them in from of my computer. That is part of a K-On! meido-cafe wallpaper you see on the monitor, and my Hot Toys Iron Man Mk III skulking in the corner there.

Alter 1/8 Yuki Nagato School Uniform Ver.

April 10, 2009

Today, I’ll be going over the 1/8 scale Yuki Nagato in her school uniform put out by Alter, from the anime The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. I feel that this anime is popular enough that she really needs no introduction, and if you have been living under a rock, the Wiki article provides a good description. She is in a fairly subdued pose in this figure and sitting on her calves, which is a departure from the energetic and lively poses that most of Alter’s figures are sculpted in nowadays.
