I took a chance. And I WON! I *never* win things like this, so it was a momentous event! I finally have a Figma of my own! Let's take a look at Haruhi, but first let me show you Rapunzel's new dress I mentioned last time.
|Time for everyone's favorite game: Detachable heads!|
Haruhi's hairstyles are her typical style (down), and a ponytail. Her face plates are a mirthful closed-eye laugh and a look of utter annoyance.
Haruhi is articulated at the neck, shoulders, elbows, wrists, (slightly) at the waist, hips, knees and ankles. Her lower legs have a bit of an odd bow to them which can make some poses such as having the legs straight down look downright weird from some angles.
|Wait, wait! Now I get to take a picture of YOU!|
I'm pretty happy with Haruhi! Some things, like the weird slant of her legs, initially disappointed me. However, it became clear very quickly that she was very well made and extremely versatile. She's the perfect size to hang out on your desk at work or on your night stand at home. For the price I paid, she's an amazing value. Really, instead of quenching my desire to own a Figma figure, she's just made me want more. Mami Tamoe from Madoka Magica would be my next choice for one. Until she comes down similarly in price though, she's outside of my "crazy toys" budget.
The removable stand is a fantastic piece on it's own, allowing you to leave your figure posed in pretty much any outlandish way you can imagine.
A word of caution though, while eBay stalking for the past year looking for a Figma, I noticed that there are several fakes, sometimes labeled in the auction as "Chinese version". Be wary of your seller and check out their feedback thoroughly. I was prepared for this figure to be a knockoff or bootleg, but I'm pretty sure now that she's legit!
