Orchidseed is going to release the Asahina Mikuru ( 朝比奈みくる ) Gothic Punk ver. ( ゴスパンクver. ) 1/7 PVC figure from the light novel/anime “The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya”( 涼宮ハルヒの憂鬱 ). Will be released in June 2009. Around 105mm tall, 6,476 yen.
Good job Orchidseed! What a big improvement over the previous Yuki Gothic Punk ver.. Both the Yuki and this Mukuru are made by the same sculptor クラムジー零 but for some reason he screwed up the face of Yuki big time, let alone the paint job. I’m so happy to see Mikuru turns out nicely.
FYI, both Griffon Enterprises and Orchidseed are working on the same Gothic Punk ver. of the three SOS dan girls. Griffon Enterprises had already done and all three of them and they look really nice. Orchidseed is still working on Haruhi and I believe we will be able to see her in this summer. Let’s hope that Orchidseed will not screw up the Haruhi.

By the way, anybody watch Haruhi-chan? I love it so much I’m telling you! My favorite character is Ryoko Asakura. She is so cute! I never like her in the original Haruhi story, but she is so lovely in Haruhi-chan. =D
