Have you always wanted that diorama of both young and older version of Haruhi kicking Kyon’s ass? Well, wait no more! Max Factory has added to their Figma lineup by releasing a younger version of Haruhi Suzumiya for your enjoyment. In case you didn’t already know, this loli-Haruhi is from the Bamboo Leaf Rhapsody arc, one of the more pivotal episodes in the the second season ofThe Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya.

Good Smile have finally released some preview coloured photos of their yet to be released Senjougahara Hitagi figure. Now if you are like me and adore figures, you have been drooling over this since you caught that first glimpse of an unpainted prototype. So get ready to grab the napkin (or bucket) and behold!

Recently I posted about a new K-ON! figure of Akiyama Mio, and upon reading you may have sensed, through the marvels of the interweb, my prolific drooling. Well prepare for another onslaught as Kyoani have finally posted colour pictures and opened up preordering for this 1/8th scale lovely, retailing for 8,000 yen. More after the jump.
Great news for Bakemonogatari fanboys (i.e. me), figurine fanboys (also me) and devotees of GoodSmile (yup, again), because GSC has pulled out ALL of their fingers with this new figure of Senjogahara Hitagi.
Okay, its been a few months now. My over inflated negative opinion on K-ON! has cooled a bit, such that now I can just appreciate the sheer merchandise cash cow the series has become. Even now, Kyo-ani are still milking away furiously with calloused fingers producing memorabilia like K-ON! backpacks. However while a lot of these products are just sheer wastes of hard earned moula, this new figure of Akiyama Mio is drop-dead gorgeous. More after the jump.
A figure of Hachune Miku (the chibi version of Hatsune Miku) is set to be launched in a rocket later this month. The rocket, built by the Social Media Satellite Development Project (SOMESAT) will be taking part in the eXtreme Performance Rocket Ships challenge. XPRS, closely linked to AERO-PAC, involves a group of amateur rocketeers who frequently meet in the Nevada Desert and attempt to win one of several rocket launching contests. Entries into the event are varied, covering everything from minature replica Patriot missiles to Astro Boy.
My personal world of figurine worship has just become a whole lot more awesome with the arrival of the Kotobukiya figurine of Haruhi Suzumiya. I have had my eyes on this figurine ever since she was released to the drooling market in October of 2008, and indeed my initial thoughts are “She is awesome”.
