To dive right into things, here’s the preview pic from the last post un-scambled:
After seeing that I’m sure no one will believe me when I say I’m not really that much of a haruhi fan, but it’s true ^^;; What you see here is the result of my inability to resist set completion and the power of suggestion… and cute nendoroids ^^;;;
I recently completed (to my satisfaction at least) my set of max factory haruhi releases.
haruhi and nagato were the only ones I was able to secure from stores. Everyone else was obtained on ebay.
I’ll be “reviewing” haruhi and ryoko… skip to the end if you’re just looking for more group shot shenanigans.
haruhi is packaged with her pointing hand…
…but as you may have noticed, I’m partial to the megaphone ^_^
Alternate uber director arm band also included, and ryoko gets her choice of bag and knife ^^; Figma like ball joint for swapping ryoko’s parts… first time I’ve seen this kind of joint for 1/8 Max Factory figures. Looks the same over at foo-bar-baz so I’m guessing it’s legit.
Danny mentioned in his kurushima kanu review that haruhi’s pantsu were originally orange! Obviously a check was in order.
Better check on ryoko while we’re at it…
mmm well, she’s got that knife so we’ll keep our distance and leave it at that for now :P
Seemed to have a good amount of light coming in my room, so tried some macro shots again…
Turned out pretty good this time (for me at least ^^;;)
So it seems this haruhi figure came out over a year and a half ago! Luckily she’s had 4 releases and I was able to get her pretty easily.
‘course that also means there must be a million reviews out there. Guess another wouldn’t hurt :P
ryoko came out in November, 2007, so I wasn’t surprised to have to go hunting for her. Not that I enjoyed scouring ebay -_-
All together now!
Was a relief to finally get everyone in hand. While I was at it, got everyone else out for a group pic. Kind of surprised myself that I had so many ^^;
How many haruhi figures are in your collection?
Breaking down by character…
The Max Factory nagato was actually the first 1/8 figure of my collection. I kept considering her while in Akihabara but finally decided to restrict myself to the nendoroid. (good thing too since there was no room in my suitcase ^^;) Ordered her later online. Kind of wish I had two to display in each of her configurations. Stuck with one I’m going with the hat and cape for now.
If I weren’t collecting the Max Factory series specifically, I probably would’ve stuck with just the Alter version in this case. Alas, my wallet weeps silently…
ryoko is the loneliest for the time being ^^; Looks like the chibi one has mikuru’s ring ^^;
Once I get my collection back on display I’ll probably have more group shots like this.
…I don’t know how I’m going to fit everyone into the detolf. Guess I’m gonna have some dusting work to do this winter ^^;;
omake! Found a bunch of wallpaper on my hard drive, threw them up in the wallpaper section.
No figma shenanigans this time… was trying to get Fate’s hand repaired which really distracted me -_- Alrighty, that’s a wrap~
