Due to overwhelming response, Maxfac will be re-releasing Suzumiya Haruhi 1/8 in April. Another 5000 will be produced. The first batch of 5000 will hit stores in February. Preorders start 2nd November at 1800 Tokyo time.
The dudes at Max are pretty chuffed at the shockingly crazed fanatic response but are apologetic over the confusion caused by the "5000 limited stock" line. Liars, I bet they planned it.
Ooh Amiami has run out of preorders already lol. Anyway I’m fairly certain everyone will get his Haruhi, so there really isn’t a need to rush. I have preordered mine long ago though.
