From “The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya” series comes another Haruhi Suzumiya – “this time in a punk style outfit based off an promotion illustration used for the live event ‘The Extravaganza of Haruhi Suzumiya.'”

From the press:

“Masanori Kuroda, the expert sculptor who worked on the original school uniform version of Haruhi, has taken the original image and added a dynamic, liberated feeling to the figure – creating a figure just as charming as the original illustration. Her voluminous skirt as well as all the tiny frills on her costume have all had careful attention paid to the finest of details, and the elaborately designed guitar she holds is yet another highlight of the figure.

Her vibrant facial expression truly brings out the confidence that Haruhi has always held true to – bringing out a lively figure fit for this worldwide idol.”

Distributed by Good Smiles Company, Haruhi has a March 2009 release date and is set to go for 7,800 Yen. The PVC figure is 1/8 scale and approximately 210mm in height.
