First of all, she's freaking cute. I've never seen an episode of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, but I know the characters and I've been crushing on Mikuru since forever, so I'm pretty glad to have gotten a figure of her.
Sculpt is gorgeous, and the detail is great, though there's some clumping of the paint I see on her costume as well as a yellowing on her apron that I don't see in any promo shots.
There's also a miniature futon tataki (a futon beater to beat the dust out of futons) and two handguns for when you want Mikuru to get medieval on any lecherous action figs you might put beside her.
And therein lies the rub on my Mikuru figure. The joints on her lower body (specifically her waist and thighs) are so loose that it's a pain to pose her. I don't feel the ratcheting of the joints other than the ones on her feet, and even then they would be pushed out alignment at the slightest touch.
She also feels floppy in my hands and getting her to stand on her own is tedious because the natural state of her waist and her head is bending backwards. The figure stand included with the figure is a godsend, but it would have been nice if she was able to stand on her own with ease. I don't know if I just got a bum figure or anything, but it's not something you can actually watch out for, so just be careful in handling her.
But when you do get to pose her right...it's...it's magic.
