Liquidstone is going to release the Nagato Yuki ( 長門有希 ) Strike Suit Close Quarters Combat Ver. ( ストライクスーツ[宇宙忍者] CQC バージョン) cold cast action figure from the Wii video game “The Parallel of Haruhi Suzumiya” ( 涼宮ハルヒの並列 ). Will be released on mid-May 2009. Preceding sale at “Treasure-Festa 2009 in Kobe” on April 29, 2009 and “Hobby Complex07 Tokyo” on May 6, 2009. Around 160mm tall, 18,000 yen (tax in).
You might not know this figure circle by the name of Liquidstone, but I’m pretty sure most of Nekomagic regular readers have all seen their works in those figure event post already (some of their works below). They’re really famous for their full color cold cast action figure. Their items always sold out in the event. Since they’re cold cast and in full color, their prices are really expensive. But still a lot of people will line up buying them.
This Yuki is from the Wii video game “The Parallel of Haruhi Suzumiya” (get this game at Play-Asia now!). She looks really cool in this costume, however the game itself isn’t selling really well (only sold like around 5,800 copies in the first day in Japan). As the main selling point of Liquidstone, this Yuki is fully poseable and cast in 10 different colors (so you don’t need to do any paint job). It’s really good for those who are afraid of painting the GK by themselves. I really would love to get on myself, but she is way too expensive for me. (T T.
