The Display Case: Max Factory Figma #002 Haruhi Suzumiya
If you couldn't tell from all the praise, this is a highly recommended collectible. Yes, collectible. Because calling it a toy doesn't seem right. She may seem small at first, but once you open her up and mess around with her you'll see that there's much more to her then meets the eye. Superb sculpting and articulation, fantastic paintwork, a simple yet effective set of accessories all come together to create a piece of work that any Haruhi fan would be foolish not to own. If you're a Figma newbie then Haruhi or any of her obtainable alternate versions (Currently 3: Summer Uniform, Middle School and Disappearance) are great figures to test the waters with. While the Winter Uniform version we saw in this review is a little harder to find due to it's age, the other versions of her are still out there and go for around $30 online, which is the best place to search for these types of imports. If Haruhi has been any indication, we'll be diving back into the Figma pool a few more times in the future. So stay tuned...!
