Will do a review when HSC is done…
Neliel without a doubt has to be my favourite figure so far. Her spectacular craftsmanship produced by Alpha X Omega is of no surprise.
Sculptured by Mirano, Neliel tu Odelschwanck is a PVC 1/8 scale figure from the popular Anime series Bleach. However this figure is actually the manga version, easily noticeable as her breasts are largely ;) exposed. The sculpt is magnificent, her hair looks dynamic as though it is flowing in the wind and her broken hollow mask is well made and detailed along with her awesome, well painted sword. Her outfit (well for what little there is of it) has detailed rips and her well crafted and painted body really gives her a realistic feel. The paint job superb in every detail all over the sculpt with paint work even on her toe and finger nails. The 3 on her back is also painted perfectly. The shading on her body is excellent making her even more realistic and the design of her facial expression is amazing and perfect for her character. As for accessories, she only comes with her sword with slides in nicely in between her hand. To me, there is no real highlighting feature in this figure as the figure as whole is absolutely incredible. Neliel’s design is flawless, there is little, if any downside to this figure and is definitely a must have for all Bleach fans. Very pleased!

This is a very nice 1/8 PVC figure of the One Piece Marine Ensign Tashigi. This is a P.O.P (Portrait of Pirates) Excellent Model series by MegaHouse. She is well constructed with little flaws in the design. Her shirt, sheath and sword (named meito Shigure) are heavily detailed, with meticulous ripples in her clothing on both her pants and shirt, making this figure yet another P.O.P masterpiece. Her accessories include her sword, sheath and her red glasses which do well to add character. Her loose pose adds emphasis on her ‘floppy’ personality and really brings the figure to life. Her only downside is that her glasses detach quite easily and are very brittle (however this may only be for my figure). All in all Tashigi is a very nice figure, perfect for any One Piece fans and goes well together with her counterpart Captain Smoker.
