Goodsmile’s official Nendoroid site updated today with the news that a set of Petit Nendoroids is being produced called “Nendoroid Petit Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu Ochuugen Set”. Chuugen (中元) is the name of gifts given at the Bon Festival in July or August in Japan, and the set is specially packaged as a gift to be given this summer (either to someone who you’re indebted to or to yourself). The set retails for 3,000 yen and contains five Petit Nendoroid figures: Tsuruya-san, Nagato Yuki, Suzumiya Haruhi, Asahina Mikuru, and Asakura Ryouko. All are school swimsuit versions, holding inflatable rings and standing 8 cm in total height on swimmer’s starting blocks. Sculpting work is from Ageta Yukio and Yamada Tetsuya with cooperation from Nendoron.

Preorders for the set open on June 9th, but are only available from the Tokimeki Mall online shop or Circle K / Sankus convenience store locations, so a proxy will likely be required for those outside Japan. Production is limited to 5,000 sets. Figure images below:
