The day the music died? Who cares! Check out these sweet figures.

I love pirates. Seriously; if it's got a skull and crossbones, I'll buy it. I always participate in Talk like a Pirate Day. I have a captain's hat with feathers,
red and black striped stockings, the works. And of course, you already know I love Haruhi. So...a pirate Haruhi? YES PLEASE! Unfortunately for me, these three figures-- pirate!Haruhi, witch!maid!Mikuru, and, uh...what is that, Strike Witches!Yuki? --are being offered bundled with the Suzumiya Haruhi no Heiretsu (The Parallel of Haruhi Suzumiya) Wii game limited edition (which is $175 on Play-Asia, and I don't even HAVE a Wii, ouch!).

Note that although Heiretsu is a Wii game, it's not the same as Gekidou, the unpopular Haruhi dancing game for Wii...Heiretsu is more of a visual novel, from the look of things. That said, Sega and Kadokawa are planning on a new campaign where people who buy both Wii games can enter a drawing to get tickets for a special live event. The DS game will be added in at some point, too. I wonder if that will help Gekidou's sales?

Wow! I find Yuki's costume to be weird..

Yeah, hers is the least cute of the three, IMO...which is a shame, because I like her character so much better than Mikuru's.

Neko-mimi space pirate Yuki is awesome! Ok, maybe not quite as awesome as pirate Haruhi, but I'd still love to have the figure. Mikuru's outfit isn't different enough from the ones she normally gets stuck with, so it doesn't really impress me.
Not that I'm going to spend that kind of money for a video game that I can't play just to get the figures....

Man.... I swear, Haruhi figures are the new Eva figures... (they keep rereleasing the same 2 or 3 figures over and over and over for years after the series originally aired, many times in outfits that have no relevance to original material). At least Haruhi has another season coming out though to excuse it...
