涼宮ハルヒ 激奏ver ~ Suzumiya Haruhi Gekisou Version
Posted by meronpan on April 12, 2009
Max Factory nailed this one. I think it’d be hard for a haruhi fan to go wrong in acquiring this version, she looks great. 1/8 scale standing 21cm tall and retailing for 7800 yen… (7057 at hobby search, 7429 at hlj)… make sure to gets yours while you can :P
Box is nice and vibrant to match the energy of the figure
Everything’s attached so no need to mess with attaching the guitar (thank goodness). Just pull off a little protective plastic and you’ll be face to face with the goddess herself.
I haven’t gotten a Max Factory figure in awhile so haruhi was a refreshing reminder of the quality they can put out.
She looks pretty good from any angle, though most interesting from the front due to the detail they put into the guitar ^^
Shot against some good ‘ol poster board for a change. Had a feeling that my slightly improved lighting situation would make it acceptable… definitely think these turned out better than anything from my white satin experiments.
Poster board is pretty restrive though. Have to pay more attention to angles and such to make sure the shot is framed on the background ^^; Guess it’s a small price to pay for a cleaner bg.
On the other hand, maybe the ambient daylight coming in through my windows helped a little… usually I shoot at night and limit the light sources to my lamps. You can see in the above pic some still turned out a little gray due to lack of light.
Mmmm… her face, the mic, guitar, dress, necklace, tights, shoes… lovely! Here are the things that motivated me to buy:
Bonus points if you recognize all the lyrics/quotes ^^
Mmmm lovely guitar
Lovely tights… or wait, stocking?
Ok, so there were some flaws on her back…
I haven’t tried to clean them up yet, so don’t know how serious the smudges are. Thanksfully it’s not visible from the usual viewing angle.
Well timed release for whatever haruhi-isms may or may not be in store for fans in the near future. If nothing else there’s haruhi-chan to enjoy ^^
Someday I’ll learn guitar…
Love how the figure captures the haruhi spirit… and oppai?
Mmm no comment we’ll leave that to mikuru-chan.
I guess another shortcoming is regular pantsu? :P
Can’t go wrong I tell ya, long as you have a little haruhi love left :P
Looks like this brings my haruhi figure count to 5.
People have noted that the previous 1/8 release is smaller… and I don’t think the height difference can be explained by her slightly bent over pose… especially since gekisou version has her legs in a slightly wider pose. It’s weird… but on the other hand figure manufacturers haven’t been known for their amazing scale accuracy ^^;
Great execution, solid work from Max Factory. Check out more reviews:
Hmmm is that it so far? Those are all that showed up while searching my rss reader… Well, should be enough to keep you busy for now :P
