Good Smile - Schwi - ReviewGood Smile - Schwi - Review

When I finally got around to watching No Game No Life it was October of last year - so, I was beyond disappointed when I saw this figure and the pre-orders had already closed. Thankfully, they had opened back up on AmiAmi prior to her original release date and I jumped on it so fast. I am so glad I got a chance to do so, because she is beyond gorgeous. Good Smile really really knocks it out of the park with their NGNL figures.

Schwi and Jibril were my two most anticipated figures this year. Now, to wait for Freeing's two Jibs.

The Box
Overall I thought the box was a little bland, especially compared to other NGNL figures, but I understand why it was. I love that it has the art which she was based off on it - art which I have on a pencil board (and is currently my wallpaper on my computer because it is simply stunning). It was hard to get a picture of the front of the box without a reflection :C (LOL Can you tell which two figure boxes can be seen in the reflection on the plastic?)

The Blister

I don’t think I have ever been more scared unpacking a figure. She was so well protected, but it was scary pulling some of that protection off. One of my wings did come disconnected from it’s peg in the back, thankfully though, I was able to get it snapped back in. Over all, they did an amazing job protecting her so she arrived unharmed.

The Figure

Honestly, I cannot get over how beautiful this figure is. Another thing is the price point for what you got, she might be ‘small’ but the amount of detail that went into her is stunning. Even where you can’t see well, under all that hair, there was a lot of attention to detail. I didn’t have much problem putting her together, getting the metal pin in wasn’t that hard, it was just hard to find the right way to push without harming any other parts of the figure.

Her Expression
They really nailed her expression. I can’t get over how beautiful the face is and how you can really get a good idea of the scene the figure is from.

Endless Hair

The back of her hair is wild. How they figured out a solid way to pack this so everything stayed where it belonged is beyond me.

Details

The details on her are absolutely stunning. You can see some small things like a bit of messy paint around the ring, but honestly, that’s about all I took notice of. I love the shiny/iridescent paint they used on some of her parts.

The damage done to her body looks really amazing. I didn’t take any individual pictures of it but I really love the base, it adds a lot to the figure and is perfect for it.

If you like NGNL I would 100% recommend grabbing this figure if the chance pops up. Hell, even if you don't like NGNL I feel like she's worth buying 100%/

On the same day she arrived so did Phat’s Jibril. Is it cruel to display them on the same shelf together?

Overall, she came out amazing and I really cannot wait to see more NGNL figures from Good Smile as they hit it out of the park with their Shiro figure as well. Now to wait for that 2020 Chibi Jibs figure from them!

galablue (1 month ago) #69980356side note, jibril is probably my favorite character design wise, so i hope that she gets even more figures in the future just so i can look at them lol.
Jibril is my favorite character over all! Plus, she's 3,000 years old so I can love on her without worry LOL

I really like her character too which you see a lot more of it in the light novels but she was great in the anime as well.

ChibiSaturn (1 month ago) #69980355Thats understandable :) Plus once you start buying ngnl figures there really is no stopping and because they're so popular I doubt they'll stop making new ones anytime soon.

The hair is one of the things that always gets me even the characters with short hair it still ends up looking amazing.

i think most, if not all, of the NGNL figures have some of the most beautiful coloring in the figure world. especially in the hair. i'm always surprised how NGNL figures nail hair quality.

i know nothing about schwi and very little about NGNL (just watched the first season on CR), but the figures have always been tempting. i find that they have a great amount of detail in them, as shown in this schwi figure. her electronic parts burning through are pretty stunning. but i probably won't get on board with buying one just because of some philosophical reasons, but i still think this is a gorgeously well made figure.
