Time for figure review number two. Today, Haruhi is our subject of interest. figma number 34, Haruhi Suzumiya Summer Uniform version was obtained in China actually, from the Shanghai branch of Hobbystock/Hobbysearch.
Haruhi’s packaging is also the standard figma packaging. The front is a window showing the figure, the back shows poses, the left shows the figma brand, the right shows a pose, and the top/bottom show what figma it is.
I’ve always liked the packaging around the actual figma since it gives space for each accessory. It also provides extra protection, in case the box is totaled during shipping. Compared to Rin’s box, Haruhi’s seems to made of thicker cardboard, making it more sturdy. The color combination of white and light blue is nice too. I wish it’d be a bit more colorful though, like Rin or Kagami OVA’s box.
The faces included also show of a variety of Haruhi’s expressions and you can certainly see Haruhi showing those expressions in some situations.
Haruhi is a figma and like I said in my last review, the majority of the figmas released almost match their anime counterpart exactly. The only problem is that when I change her hair to the ponytail option part, the front piece tends to fall out. It’s not stably slotted into the back hair part.
figmas are made for posing and that’s what Haruhi does. Not much more to say here. Lots of great hand parts included with her too.
Haruhi’s base is your standard clear figma base. A non equilateral hexagon with the figma logo and copyright plus a stand that has a joint in the middle so it can bend. However, the stand itself is also what hinders the posing. Haruhi’s stand fit perfectly on her. The stand also provides extra posability. She can also stand without her stand. No pun intended.
All of Haruhi’s option parts (especially the ponytail!) make this figure worth getting even if you already have her winter uniform one. She can be put into a variety of poses and the camera that she comes with can be used for even greater shots! Take a picture of her taking a picture!
