Figma Nagato Witch Ver.


For those who are a fan of Nagato Yuki from the Haruhi Suzumiya anime and franchise, you may be interested at this second Figma of her, which is available for the lads attending this year's Wonfest (Wonder Festival) in August. Not to worry; the general release will be sometime in September.

Figma is a series of posable figures under Max Factory of Good Smile Company. They are well known for great articulations and posability without exposing much of the joints. I have bought myself a Figma Haruhi last month in Nakano Broadway during the trip in Tokyo for 1895 Yen, which I find it a pretty good deal. No photos though as I have yet to buy a new camera.

Unlike the school uniform Nagato, this version comes in a witch costume (instead of a cardigan) over her uniform with an electric guitar as seen in the anime episode "Live Alive". Some other accessories are from the episode "The Adventures of Mikuru Asahina Episode 00".

The two signs are labelled "Yamatsuchi Model Shop" and "Daimori Electronics Shop", which appear as sponsors for The Adventures of Mikuru Asahina Episode 00.

A magic wand and a tea set. Notice that the pointy hat and the mantle are removable.

And last but not least...
Shamisen the male calico cat.

The retail price for this Nagato according to the official site is 3000 Yen, which is currently the most expensive Figma on the line so far (excluding the roleplay Haruhi which is a PS2 exclusive one). This is most likely due to the fact that it is the Figma that has the most accessories in the line, as well as being granted an early release in Wonfest.

Alternatively, you can get the cheaper normal school uniform Figma Nagato which comes with 2 books and a folding chair, as well as optional garments such as spectacles and school loafers. Both versions are recommended if you like Nagato, but you'd better pre-order the witch one quickly in case of reservations closing earlier than expected as a result of overwhelming number of orders.

  1. gonna preorder this one soon. just makes me wonder if they're gonna come up with new versions of the other SOS-dan members.

    im hoping to get figma suzaku but its a wonfest exclusive so dunno if its possible at all. sigh. dont understand why when its such a popular character. they should mass produce it.

  2. I wonder if Figma Haruhi Bunny Costume ver. will come out as well, to compliment this concert version of Yuki. ^^

  3. @ Ivan:

    Yea Suzaku happens to be a Wonfest exclusive. Despite the fact that it's pretty much a headswap, it will still be popular. When the time comes there will be people who will sell them on ebay or yahoo auction. Will you risk trying to get one there?

    @ NK:
    Figma Bunny Haruhi will be interesting, but the design will be tough due to greater exposure of joints. On the other hand there are the Live Alive version of Nagato and Haruhi with guitars (and amplifiers!) by SEGA prize, released sometime late in June.
