    Do you know that she can be assembled back again without seeing any damages on her?

    That’s a good question; it seems that the cameraman who did the review was being careful not to show any damage, but if you look here you can see some scarring at the bottom of her shirt. I’m guessing it’s not a perfectly clean cast-off, alas.

    that’s true, it seems like the paint goes off with the clothes ^_^’ i would never treat my figures like that ..

    Eh? It was released yesterday? I got mine 3 days ago.

    Ah…if you went to Hobby Search, they still have it available to buy. That’s if you want to try the place. I know you hate HS (at least I get that impression), but it’s there for less than retail, so it’s a shot? *shrug*
    Either way, I have her on order through them, and maybe it’s a case-by-case basis whether she scars for life? ^^

    >>Angelo
    I’d say it’s worth the risk… :3
    >>tj han
    According to Goodsmile’s products page they shipped it out from their facility on Tuesday. You must live in some sort of extradimensional time nexus :O
    >>Deibi Manabu
    Sweet! Thanks for pointing that out, I haven’t checked their listings for personal use since they neglected to send me a mail that the Noantica figure was shipping, but at 5,500 yen that’s probably cheaper than I could have gotten her at auction. I owe you one.

    hi shingo!
    i wouldnt mind sending you one for free, but you would have to wait about a month. Getting import figures to the states takes a bit of time. TT.TT

    Toyslogic still has it up for preorder. Release date seems a bit off though.

    i saw it available on HS for 2 WHOLE days and was wondering why it wasn’t sold out….
    either way, i passed on MIkuru even though it’s so cute.

    Also by the look of this shot here
    there is a massive gap in the back caused by the missing skirt.

    HLJ has it, apparently…

    Yes, HLJ has it in stock.
    Maybe there’s just more than enough of her this time around that they don’t sell out? I mean, she’s not unpopular, and maybe Max just made many more to compensate the growing demand of figures these days in this run. All three Haurhi servings have sold out already, and so has the Yuki ones.
    FREEing of course sold out of Mikuru instantly and probably won’t re-release it (though I want it to, since I have Haruhi and Tsyruya in preorder status), but who knows.
    And Shingo, I know all about their emailing woes. They suck at communcation, but they do tolerate my endless cancellations without paying the 20% fee…
