The toy maker Bandai is now taking pre-orders for a Haruhi Suzumiya figure with a mecha exoskeleton toy that will ship next February.

Popular mechanical designer Hajime Katoki (Gundam 0083, Gundam Wing: Endless Waltz, Super Robot Wars Original Generation, Virtual On) had originally drawn an illustration of the "Haruhi-taichō Senyōki Zenryōiki Hanyō Hitogata Kessen Gaikokkaku" for the third official Haruhi Suzumiya comic anthology book last year. Bandai first revealed the figure at its Tamashii Nation event on September 30, but did not give price or other details then.

The exoskeleton's name is a mishmash of various words used in technical specifications for anime mecha, and it roughly means "Commander Haruhi's Personal All-Regime General-Purpose Humanoid Final-Battle Exoskeleton."

Bandai's Composite Ver. Ka figure line features various mecha that Katoki designed — or redesigned for the toy series — such as the Virual On games' Temjin or the Code Geass anime's Lancelot. The suggested retail price for the new figure is 5,040 yen (about US$62), although Composite Ver. Ka figures are often available at a discount.
