Nyagato ~Metamo Version

"Nyaa..." In a deadpan voice as Yuki would've put it. This is the Metamo version of Nagato Yuki made by Bandai. Probably one of the only nekomimi Nagato Yuki (or should I say Nyagato?) figure around aside from the trading figures.

Metamo, short for metamorphosis. In this case, Metamo for this figure is colour changing. I'm not a fan of taking figure boxes anymore, so here it is all in one picture. As you can see you can have different versions of this Nyagato!

But first... I have to talk about my first Metamo figure.

There are plenty of bunny girl Haruhi figures around, but not one that changes colour. This is my first bunny girl Haruhi, the second being the Sega version and the third would be the Gift version.

I guess I don't really like the reflective eyes, but it is a cheaper kind of figure. it doesn't really matter anyway.

I forget how well built Haruhi is for a school girl... That or they're very generous when they make figures ^^;

The backside with that unsightly stand... I don't want to remove it when I display it though since it might actually lean. Darn cheap figure...

Here's that sign in upright position.

It kinda looks like she's on a crutch, lol. But anyway this is the fully coloured Haruhi. When the figure gets warm she changes to white. I think there is another version where she is originally red instead of brown.

Ok, she's a little bit dusty... I really like her bunny tail and I have to say her bare back looks really, really good.

And now for the colour change. Haruhi is an older Metamo figure, so some of the brown colour sticks to the white part even when it's warm/hot.

You might think that perhaps this colour change gimmick because of temperature is nothing new. And I would agree with you. I was not impressed by it, but I am a big Haruhi fan and I was lacking some of her figures. When I bought this Haruhi I was not in a good mood (I tend to shop when I'm in a bad mood...)

I like putting just one finger on her leg, it looks like her stocking has a run.

Once I got home and opened this Haruhi, I was giddy like a schoolboy! Okay, a perverted schoolboy... I was just handling her on a hot summer day, so I quickly got her to change colour just by touching, and when I realized where I touched her, I was just giggling with a perverted face; a happy perverted face. It's very nice to know I can be cheered up just by this, eh? Then again, who wouldn't be happy if you're touching a girl and she changes colour?

And now on to Nyagato! I think I remembered some people complained how her face didn't look that good... Thankfully I bought this on sale ^^

So you're wondering why she looks like a cow? Well the tail wasn't attached from the package, so I was trying to attach it, but since it's becoming warmer here in Vancouver, I can't help but change some of her colour just by holding her and attaching her tail.

Uh... No... I wasn't touching her in appropriate places, honest... I was just trying to attach her tail...


I was trying to give her the Two-Face look, but I can only do so much by touching her...

You can see most of the base of her tail is white. It's where I've been holding the tail.

Sylvester the Cat tail colour :D

Yes, you can also change the colour of her nekomimi ^_^

Hmmmm... It looks like the evidence is obvious enough... There are prints on her everywhere! Well it's evident that Ecchi Man's been here... Might as well continue.

Even though her clothes change colour her pantsu are still pure white ;)

This is a great angle. Of course my target was the panchira...

You might be able to determine my identity by these fingerprints... But you don't know which finger this is :P

To recover her original colours, you can just put the figure into the fridge. Which is what I did... My dad saw the Haruhi whose colour was being recovered inside the fridge... I explained to him about the colour change, lol.

To fully change into the white colour it'd have to be 30 degrees celsius... Or you can touch her as I've mentioned before. Or you can use a hair dryer. I'll try that once I get a hold of a hair dryer.

Which do you prefer? Black or white?

Hopefully the tail stay attached properly... It was hard to put in.

It almost looks like you can peek inside.......

Big paws! You know what they say about big paws... "Hurry up! Stop making us wait so long!" Hahahaha, get it? "Paws." "Pause." Nyahahahahaaa..... Never mind...

Nice curvy back too.

Ah here's a shot with the stand that was included. It's kinda useless since it doesn't really attach to her...

I wanna slip an ice cube down her back and dress...

And down the front of her dress too...

Right now Nyagato is placed near my computer. I've used Haruhi as a thermometer in my room. Haruhi stayed white for all of summer last year. It was freaking hot! So now this Nyagato will be my thermometer for the computer. If she becomes white then perhaps I need to get an air conditioner...


  1. Wow, didn't know there were multiple color changing Haruhi figures... The only one I knew of was the Tsuruya one. Nyagato is really cute ^.^

  2. I never knew there were color changing figures. That's really cool!
    I think I like the darker versions better for both though, so keep them cold. ^ ^

    Nagato is super cute, and I agree that Suzumiya has a very sexy built, especially in a bunny suit. ^ ^

  3. I know you wanted the clothes to actually disappear, and not just change color...

  4. @HDYF: Haha ya, there are quite a few. Surprisingly there isn't one for Mikuru... Very, very strange...

    @Yi: There quite a few in their lineup. The Haruhi one is quite rare now (because it's probably the best looking one, lol). Heheh nice to keep them cool, but unfortunately I can't control the weather... Or can I!? No... No I can't..

    @FatB: Well Haruhi's stockings disappear in a colour change :P Plus I have a few Queen's Blade figures if I wanna do that...

  5. Do you think that a hot day will be able to change their color, or is it dependent on something much warmer?

    It is too bad that bunny-girl's stand is right there covering up her "asset."

    They are both nice looking figures.


    Sorry, I couldn't resist.

    It seems a little gimmicky to have a color-changing figure, especially if it doesn't maintain the color. It's still a very cool effect though.

  7. cool, I always wanted the metamo Nagato, but alas I didn't get her while she was on sale and now the only one I'm able to find anywhere is Tsuruya. color changing gimmick is pretty old but it's still cool, I wouldn't mind seeing more figures with it ^^

  8. @mlscale: A very hot day would fade some of the dark colours. I was witness to that when I left it inside my very hot room. She was white and no way it was changing back, lol. It was above 30 degrees celsius for at least a week last year. It turns dark easily during our winter, haha. Yeah, I hate that stand too, but better to have it than have her lean...

    @Radiant: LoL I couldn't resist either. I didn't notice the cow pattern until I saw the photos XD It maintains the colour change if I touch it unless the temperature change drastically.

    @Yamada: Nyaa's all right ^^

    @Persocom: I think a lot of people didn't like Nagato's face, but I didn't care especially if it was on sale, lol. There were some To-Love-ru figures that did that, but I didn't really know the series back then ^^;

  9. That's a pretty damn awesome effect (oh if only they did it with male figures... ;_;)

  10. @Yaku: I wonder which male character would fit this kind of gimmick for a figure? ^^;

  11. Moo! Hah! Imagine if they made an anime gimmick out of that!
    Really though, it's about time, with the Nyaa's and the existence of cowgirls.

    These do unfortunately not look at the best of quality, or else it would be a very fun gimmick. I don't believe all those temperature fluctuations would be good for the figure, though... It seems the color changes easily enough. When I first saw these I thought you had to move them to and fro to change their colors, seeing how indoor temperatures are more or less constant. I mean, why would there ever be a source of hear near a figure? Unless...

  12. @Tim: I may have to find me a cowgirl figure to go with this then. Err... not a cow cowgirl, but a cowboy cowgirl >.> Here it's either constantly hot or constantly cold indoors, but I think since it's been colder longer, the brown colours seems to become permanent >_<

  13. This reminds me of those Coffeemugs with a chick on them and when you fill them they become naked.
    Why didnt they think of that when making these figures!

  14. @Blowfish: Hahaha I think they should do this kind of gimmick with the Queen's Blade ones, eh? Though a lot of them have armors on... Transparent colour changing armor?
