The trailer can be viewed below. Theme song by “JAM Project”:

Each character merchandise comes with either 1 or 2 drama CDs and a “Secret File” which shows a lot of that particular character’s art and other reports. Yeah, each character gets their own Seiyuu ^^

Unable to get Char, sold out everywhere =/ Gotta have to wait for the re-release I guess, planning to get every character ^^ Maybe they could get their own Anime in the future hehe :p

Nendoroid-Petit Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu #01 (Good Smile)

January 12, 2008

Alright!! Next is “Nendoroid-Petit Suzumiya Haruhi no Yutsuu #01” from Good Smile Company, which I got like a month ago. I ordered this online through Hobby Search for 5400 yen.

It comes in 12 sets figures, which include Haruhi herself, Mikuru, Yuki, Tsuruya, and Kyon. Each character gets 2 version of themselves plus a secret figure, which totals up into 11 different figures. Figure No. 12 is basically a random extra figure. In my case, I got another Kyon ^^; Each figure measures no more than 6 cm of height (That’s why it’s called “Petit” ^^;) and each cost for 500 yen, if you buy them individually.

Cute aren’t they? 😀

Some notes on the figures. Some people have been complaining about getting lots of defects. One of the problems is that they cannot stand properly or the hands keep falling off. Well to be honest, it’s true that they can be quite hard to put together, but I think it’s acceptable. For a figure worth 500 yen, I think the amount of work they put on this figure is really great. The details are really good for a 500 yen figure and they’re so adorable ^^ These are for display anyway, so as long as you don’t play with them much, I think it should be fine ^^

PS: If you are wondering, the “Secret Figure” is Haruhi in cheerleading outfit ^^
