Finally, I’ve got around to doing my Halibel review! This figure is beyond amazing. She is my second Alpha x Omega figure, with Neliel being my other and like her, Halibel is flawless. Hali stands at about 25cm tall with excellent detail and craftwork from top to bottom. Starting with her head, she has 2 changeable head pieces with one showing a normal face with short hair and the other showing her hollow mask with 3 long extensions of hair coming out from the back. The detail on each piece is incredible, right down to her mouth on the first piece and the teeth on her hollow mask on the second piece. The paintwork is also amazing with excellent shading on her hair. Her body also has 2 changeable pieces, one with her jacket closed, covering the lower half of her face and the other with her jacket open, revealing the number ‘3’ on her very exposed breasts. The detail on these pieces is also superb, and both are painted incredibly well, especially with the shading on her body. Her pink scabbard can also be placed on the back of each of these pieces. Hali also has detachable arms, both of which have great detail, mainly on her ‘claw-like’ hands. Her sword is placed in her hands with her right hand gripping the hilt and her left supporting the blade. The sword is amazing, having precise detail, particularly on the hilt and the addition of the ‘energy’ exploding out really adds to its awesomeness.
Moving to her lower body, her dress is extremely well crafted and looks amazing – the ripples/folds in her dress are very well done and the shading is brilliant. A high amount of detail is even shown on her legs, despite being hardly visible under her dress. Her shoes are also highly detailed with great paintwork and accuracy. Two clear pieces then connect her to her yellow, oval base with her name, number and ‘bleach’ written into it. Halibels’ stance is also just epic and captures her character perfectly, really bringing her to life and looking as though she is ready to attack. Overall there is virtually nothing bad about this figure, but I will say her hair is very brittle and one of the strands did break off and I had to re-glue it on, but you know, she does have two heads so it wasn’t that big of a deal. Regardless, her overall appearance is just spectacular and is a real pleasure to look at. Standing there on my top shelf alongside Neliel, she is a definite highlight to my collection! This is certainly a must buy for Bleach fans and figure collectors
Overall Appearance – 10/10. Paintwork – 10/10. Detail 10/10. Accessories/changeable pieces - 10/10. Final result – 10/10!

(I will also take some more Hali pictures with her closed chest piece, just realised I haven’t taken any)
