Do guys do that (secretly) to each other when doing their business at the urinal? :P
Title: Suzumiya Haruhi no Shoushitsu Ichiban Kuji Premium G Set Endless Eight version Kyun Chara Set 涼宮ハルヒの消失 一番くじプレミアム G賞 ｴﾝﾄﾞﾚｽｴｲﾄver. きゅんｷｬﾗｾｯﾄ (一番くじプレミアム 涼宮ハルヒの籤引)
Available: Early December 2010
Collection: Set of 8 character designs sold separately.
Price: 800 Yen per try. This is one of the 20 lucky draw items.
For online purchase, the price depends on where you buy it. Many are up for bidding on Japanese auction sites.
There are eight figures to collect in Set G, including the boys, Kyon キョン and Koizumi Itsuki 古泉 一樹 and kimono + swimwear versions of the three girls: Suzumiya Haruhi 涼宮 ハルヒ, Nagato Yuki 長門 有希 and Asahina Mikuru 朝比奈 みくる.
Similar to the figures in Set D, the figures in Set G are also nendoroid-sized. But as a lucky draw item that costs the same, Set D is definitely more worth it since it gives you two figures instead of just one per win. But since the figures are different, collectors will probably still fork out the cash for the sake of collecting a full set of 8.
Oh yeah, if you haven’t noticed by now. Kyon isn’t naked. He is just topless because he is wearing his swimming trunks from Season Two of the anime during the Endless Eight arc. If you’re interested, check out Episode 3 in that season because it has a couple of mild BL fan-service scenes like suggestive looks and overly touchy-feely shots, etc. If you’re a fujoshi, you’ll sure be able to spot them lol~
Kyon: OI! KOIZUMI GET YOUR HANDS OFF MY BUTT!
Itsuki: My my, I never knew you had such a nice ass ♥
Okie, back to the review. Both swimwear figures of Itsuki and Kyon each come with a base and back support. Both figures stand about 10 cm tall. Kyon’s base is blue and Itsuki’s is magenta (or purple). Nobody expected them to make a figure of Itsuki in Speedos, did they? Well, it’s high time we poor fangirls get some fan-service figures too ^^;;; and the result looks good! :D
Both boys need their bases to stand due to the angle of their bare feet. I love their expressions ^^ Kyon’s expression is based on his happy face when he sees Asahina Mikuru in a kimono and Itsuki’s face (is when he is peeking at Kyon! Nah… fangirl delusion~) looks in-character and handsome too. Besides the expressions, I like their posing too.
I’m very sure Goodsmile won’t be making a nendoroid Itsuki. I wonder how many fan letters they received during the past few years before they finally decided to make Kyon nendoroid *shrug*
Side views. Remember I asked the question about the seeming crack on Kyon’s top side hair? Well, it is the same in this Kyon version, so I think it is a manufacturing result.
Very nice details of the hands and feet. Love those little fingers and toes. Ooo… and Itsuki’s belly button too! Sexaay lol~
Back views. Nice sculpting!
Kyun Chara Kyon disassembled. Only the head is removable.
Kyun Chara Koizumi Itsuki disassembled. Only the head is removable.
Random close up.
Random close up. Sexy speedos and cute toes.
Random close-up. Cute everything.
Random close-up. Such cute, chubby cheeks :3
And yes. They’re holding hands. Either that or Itsuki is grasping onto Kyon’s wrist. It’s just not shown on-screen in the anime ;) Those sneaky animators.
By the way, I’ve managed to buy the correct Newtype issue that has the mail-in coupon for Banpresto’s Newtype Original version set for Disappearance ver. Koizumi Itsuki 古泉 一樹 and Suzumiya Haruhi 涼宮ハルヒ However, you need to send them a local postal order. No cash allowed. That means you still need to have a Japanese contact to do it for you locally. Fine. I’ll give up for now and try to hunt him down in auctions in April after it is released.
