Our apartment – 2016 NSFW

It's been not only a long time since I've posted here, but it has been a long time since I shared photos of my place. The last time you guys saw where I lived I was still living at home with my parents. It was back in 2012, so easily 4 years ago you saw my collection. Now you can see not only has my… [more]

[Alter] – Melty Review

So since I've moved into my new apartment I still hadn't set up my photography studio. Seems work has me busier than I thought I would ever be, however I took some time this past weekend to set up my studio so I could take some photos of my latest purchase, Alter's 1/8th Melty from Shining Hearts. Now… [more]

[Orchid Seed] – Yuki Review NSFW

Pre-ordered this figure the moment she was released for pre-order. I needed for for multiple reasons, she's sexy/half naked, plus while she's not Sora she reminds me of Sora from Yosuga no Sora! But she's Yuki from Maid Yome and she's pretty amazing. The only issue is her adorable mouth really looks… [more]

Nendoroid Storage Container

I recently went on a trip to a magical place, The Container Store. Ok it's not really magical, but I happen to have discovered a love for organizing my home. I tend to prefer Ikea and Daiso but we went to The Container Store on a whim and I discovered this lovely storage container! I've been needing… [more]

Max Factory Suzumiya Haruhi No Gekisou

Flickr Link

I’ve been staying away from getting more Haruhi figures for a while. I just wanted to complete the original set of Max Factory figures and then be done with any figures from this show. But no, Max Factory has to announce this amazing set of Haruhi, Mikuru and Yuki from the designs of the promotional posters for the Suzumiya Haurhi no Gekisou concert.

I have always loved this design of the whole gang and for them to release a figure is just awesome! Now it would also be totally awesome if Max Factory decided to release the rest of the entire gang, Tsuruya-san, Kyon, Koizumi, Asakura, Kyon’s Imouto, Taniguchi and Kunikida.

I really wanted to do the entire shoot with this background, a similar background to the recent Nendoroid Kaito post. But out of all the pictures taken this was the only one that came out nice. So i settled for the beige polka dot background instead! Btw had tons of people asking me what i used! It’s a glitter scrapbook paper thing i found at target! They ahve an awesome scrapbooking section and tons of awesome stuff that can be sued for background shoot. (maybe i shouldn’t be giving away my secrets but oh well!)

Max Factory is hands down on of my most favorite figure manufactures. The quality of their releases always finds out a way blow me out of the water with their amazing designs!

Flickr Link

There is also something about figures that have an original illustration to be based on, gives you something to compare to and when you compare this figure to her original design she’s flawless!

Flickr Link

Just adore her expression!

Flickr Link

I want an outfit like this! Maybe a future cosplay? I’d need to get a guitar first 🙁

Flickr Link

I adore how the guitar has strings, too often PVC releases don’t get this kinda of attention and it looks amazing!

Flickr Link

Love her Hoop earrings, I sadly can’t rock hoops without looking like a Chola.

Flickr Link

Love the skirt and the two different length of tights, plus the shoes are just awesome!

Flickr Link

The folds in her skirt looks so amazing! just gives you this amazing feeling of movement!

Flickr Link

The moment she was announced i knew i had to get my hands on her. Once again Max Factory has me running to complete the set as well! I already have Mikuru who should be getting her own review soon as well. Also have Yuki Pre-ordered as well so i’ll have the whole set soon enough. Haruhi and Haruhi related figures are like Fate/Stay Night figures. I was never that interested in getting merchandise from the series or of those character but end up getting tons since they just keep releasing some amazing figures of them different unique designs. It’s hard for a figure collector not to stumble upon a Haurhi or Haruhi related character when they just keep producing such amazing beauties.

See more reviews at Foo-Bar-Baz, Exelica Meteor, Shin-Otaku and Vision of Vixion. (i used to do this more often but got lazy and stopped, i’ll start back up now if i missed yours let me know and i’ll add it to the post!)

  1. I lucked out on getting this one myself! It was used for 3000 yen and in perfect condition. It really is beautiful. I vowed not to give in and buy it but instantly broke that when I found it for 60% off…I even bought the Mikuru.

    • Dancing Queen says:

      wow what a steal! where did you find it for such a deal? a private sale or some site?

      • I got it when I was in Japan over the last 2 weeks of April. There was a store that had it used in Otome Road (Ikebukuro) along with some other used figures and doujinshi. I was surprised something so new was being sold so cheap. I found nothing wrong with it apart from a little bit of the paint wearing off of the strings, but that’s nothing to complain about I think.

    Nice reviews of this beautiful figure. She is my favorite Haruhi (with Freeing’s version). Your shooting is really nice ! Congratulation for it ^^

    it looks great, I really want that figure but she is so expensive. what happened earlier to your blog, why was it down?

  4. Another beautiful figure from Max Factory. It’s a shame they don’t do too many PVC’s these days. Figmas are fun, but I miss all the lovely stuff Max Factory pumped out.

    1st picture is pretty, the depth, the brightness, all good ^^b

    This figurine is nice indeed, but the price turned me off 🙁 I miss the days when 1/8 only cost like 4000 yen 🙁

  6. Miette-chan says:

    OK, that’s it I’m getting this, all of you post such beautiful pictures of this Haruhi release.

    Awesome photos! but, hey, why not try taking the photos at other angles as well, like more close-ups on face, details etc

      tell me about it >_< i try and then end up not liking the shots as much and deleting them, i get the detail but they aren't as nice

  8. Kanon says:

    This figure is so awesome! But there’s no way I’ll get all three too ^^; Probably going to get Yuki ^^ But if Max Factory did make all of the characters I’d get Kyon and Itsuki in a heartbeat ^^

  9. Figure Maniac Edwin says:

    Where did you get your Haruhi from?

    • Dancing Queen says:

      Hobby Search, was gonna get her from amazon.jp since tiw as cheaper but wasn’t able to cancel my order in time

      • Figure Maniac Edwin says:

        Why won’t they let you cancel your order?

        • Dancing Queen says:

          they let you but once the figure is released they want to charge you 10% of the item’s value, was cheaper to leave the order then pay the 10% and the amazon.jp price

  10. Flip says:

    I want this too,I don’t own a single Haruhi yet..

    • Dancing Queen says:

      i’m always surprised to hear how someone doesn’t own a haruhi yet, when she’s such a popular character and there are so many amazing figures of her

  11. lovelyduckie says:

    Did you pre-order adult Mikuru as well? I foolishly thought my MF Haruhi figure collection was done when I finally tracked down Tsuruya! I was so so wrong too. I look awful in hoop earrings but I love them on figures and a lot of other girls. When I wqs packing to move I realized I had put a scratch in the paint of my Ryoko! MUST FIX!

      no i didn’t and i might get if her i see her on sale but if not i’m not stressing over it

    Gah. And I missed the pre-order from my local figure store for the concert ver figures. T_T

  13. Ambergur says:

    Wow! She’s so beautiful. I hope they make the rest of the crew, that would be amazing. I’ll definitely have to pick this one up.

    • Dancing Queen says:

      it would be awesome if they made the rest of the crew for sure! it would be hard to pick up!

  14. Optic says:

    Thanks to the mass review I read (including yours) I placed back my order and I don’t regret it a bit. It was a mistake to cancel but the lack of funds was one of the reasons why at the time.

    It’s rare for figures to have actual guitar strings.

    Optics last blog post..Megami Magazine Vol. 109: My Impressions

    • Dancing Queen says:

      it is very rare for PVC figures to have strings but i’m glad they did it for these figures and i hope other figure companies follow suit

  15. Mandy says:

    I’m so conflicted about these figures! I enjoyed the anime, but I never really got super into it like a lot of fans did. So I never really felt compelled to get figures… but this set is so awesome looking! I especially like the Nagato one, but if you get one you need to get the others! Oh man, so hard to decide!
