The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya – Asahina Mikuru Gothic Punk Ver. 1/7 PVC figure by Griffon Enterprises
Expected for January of 2012, Griffon Enterprises is going to re-relase their 1/7 PVC figure of Asahina Mikuru Gothic Punk Ver. (朝比奈みくる ～ゴスパンクver.～) It was originally released on December of 2008, so those who missed that release may want to preorder it while you can. Asahina certainly looks Très chic!!
Quoting from HobbyLink Japan:
Usually Mikuru Asahina seems embarrassed by the costumes Haruhi insists she wear, but she seems to like this cute goth-punk look! Expertly sculpted by Masahiro Yamamoto, Mikuru wears a flouncy ruffled skirt and a tailed vest with real chains hanging from the belt, and arm- and leg-warmers, too. The details in her costume are amazing, from the lacing on the back of her vest to the pattern on her tie. She stands about 24.5cm tall, and a base is included.
