Anime Newtype (manufactured by GSC) is going to release the Suzumiya Haruhi ( 涼宮ハルヒ) Sasanoha Rhapsody Ver. ( 笹の葉ver. ) Nendoroid Petit trading figure from the light novel/anime “The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya”( 涼宮ハルヒの憂鬱 ). It’s free when subscribed the Anime Newtype Channel membership for October 2009 to March 2010 (525 yen per month). Figure will be shipped to the subscribers in November 2009.
This Suzumiya Haruhi Petit is not a normal Nendoroid Petit, she comes with a build-in IC chip called “FeliCa Lite”. Just like the demo video below, when you put her near your computer, your computer will open the browser and go to Anime Newtype Channel automatically. I’m not sure how it works, I guess you need to install a software for the FeliCa chips and might need to have bluetooth.
By the way, it is “Silver Week” holiday in Japan from 19th – 23rd. That’s why we don’t really have any figure news these days. =]
