Goodsmile Company - Shuvi - 1/8 ReviewGoodsmile Company - Shuvi - 1/8 Review

ShikirollShikirollIl y a 2 moisReview
.。*゚+.*.。 Hello MFC! ゚+..。*゚+

Its review time! ( ˙▿˙ ) I literally just got this figure yesterday evening in the mail and un-boxed it today because I JUST COULDN'T WAIT!! (☆ω☆) It is Goodsmile Company's Shuvi! This has to be one of my most anticipated figure for this year, the painful delays finally ended and she's finally here (*꒦ິ꒳꒦ີ)
I'm a huuuuuuge fan of NGNL, and an even bigger fan of NGNL Zero (¯▿¯) When GSC announced a figure based on the illustration below:

INSTANT PREORDER!!! Shuvi is my absolute favourite in the NGNL franchise and this was an absolute dream come true (♡‿♡) I'm sure you can tell from the original illustration what a pain it would be to sculpt her, so I was really glad that a reputable company is doing it! (´• ω •`) Now lets see how she turned out!

Its a relatively simple matte box, with a white and black theme, it has a big window at the front to showcase the figure (although you cannot see much since she is so well wrapped with plastic sheets lol) and 2 small windows, one on the left and the other on the top of box. It also has pictures of the figure in different angles, as well as the original illustration on the back and sides.
I'm not too picky about boxes since I ran out of space to keep them, but this one is really compact and looks pretty easy to store! But in terms of appearance, its nothing special (´• ω •`)

Phew she arrived without any damage~ it must be quite a feat planning the packaging for this figure given the amount of fragile strands of hair and parts (´ー` )

Base / Figure

✧・゚: *✧・゚:*  Base  *:・゚✧*:・゚✧
A simple yet beautiful base (´ ω `♡) There are no supporting pegs on the base except for a small hole where her live cable is supposed to be fixed

Holy moly (♡‿♡) What are these crazy details how did they do it, its like magic!! It looks exactly like the prototype and I'm super happy she's finally here to join my NGNL shrine (★ω★) Lets see the close ups! There's lots because she is super photogenic at any angle!
https://i.ibb.co/zmDxzvg/20191026-144231.jpg
Her distant stare has been faithfully recreated, the strands of hair that lay across her face is also very neat and clean!
https://i.ibb.co/9G4qF7N/20191026-144300.jpg
The burnt area on her face is slightly accentuated with some orange highlights which makes the damage look fresh (´-ω-`) a heartbreaking detail oof
https://i.ibb.co/z4XWQwR/20191026-144337.jpg
The right side, which is the more heavily damaged side of her body is amazing! Look at how detailed the machinery is! (✯◡✯) her left gun arm looks like its been through a lot huh (;ω;) the silver metal being exposed from the chipped red exterior gives it a really worn look
https://i.ibb.co/k1VGDTL/20191026-144347.jpg
Her right leg is also absolutely wrecked, once again amazing detail to the inner machinery~
https://i.ibb.co/gmw2k5H/20191026-144405.jpg
Moving on to the left and more intact side of her body, dayuuuum look at those parts! (˙꒳​˙) The silvery paint has a slight purple sheen when the light hits. Also on this side, you can see the fluorescent blue parts in a better condition. Its details like this that make the figure pop doesn't it? (˃ᴗ˂)ﻭ
https://i.ibb.co/6FNQbmD/20191026-144530.jpg
Her fingers are also very nicely sculpted! The ring that she protected to the very end is also included of course (╥ω╥) Each nail is also painted with a nude glossy colour
https://i.ibb.co/cvm2MBG/20191026-144612.jpg
https://i.ibb.co/nbG0s0S/20191026-144645.jpg
Of course the legendary hair sculpt (˘⌣˘) Each strand is very neat and dynamic! The purplish blue gradient is amazing as well. I don't even know how to describe it (T^T)
https://i.ibb.co/MVPPNRW/20191026-144703.jpg
Her hair seams look pretty natural and well hidden
https://i.ibb.co/jH1RwBS/20191026-144739.jpg
Her halo is made of 2 plastic disks, connected by a thin metal wire, it was honestly quite a pain to set this up because the wire was sooo thin and the holes were too small, so I had to really try and drill it in (´∀`* ) But the results were great! I really liked that they recreated the halo, being true to the illustration
https://i.ibb.co/sQD8TtG/20191026-144804.jpg
https://i.ibb.co/8M96Nf6/20191026-144823.jpg
Her mechanical wings(?) looks pretty battered but still so beautiful. The level of details on each part is really breathtaking
https://i.ibb.co/bmjQy5N/20191026-145203.jpg
Here is the live cable that connects to the base! The peg is barely visible (´∀`)

Shuvi vs GSC's 1/8 Shiro
What other better comparison than GSC's Shiro right? (≧◡≦) They look pretty similar in size, given that both of them are 1/8s, from the same company and from the same series

Phew, this has turned out to be quite a lengthy post (´ ∀ ` *) I am so so so pleased with this figure and it is definitely worth every single penny. The character, sculpt, painting are all super on point and it is a must have for every NGNL fan (^▽^) She is quite a pain to set up because she just sits on the uneven base without any pegs and you kinda have to fiddle around till she sits on the right spot, and the halo which takes a bit of force to fix on. However, she's worth all that effort and I'm so glad I have her now (❛ᴗ❛ ) Thank you for reading till the end and I hope this review is helpful in your consideration to get this figure! (°▽°)/

Shikiroll (Il y a 2 mois) #69471295Urghh I know that feeling too well!! (;꒳;) But its great you manage to get her in the end!!
I'm so glad I got on the NGNL train early on and managed to get preorders for most of the figures, especially Shuvi!! The movie was a hella masterpiece (☆▽☆)

The only one I missed that I need to get my hands on is Phats Schwi. I'm hoping they do a rerelease of her soon or that I can find her on amiami.

I was able to get Kotobukiya's Schwi preowned on ebay for like $85.00 and got Phat's Schwi at a Kinokuniya booth at a convention.

ChibiSaturn (Il y a 2 mois) #69451081Gaah, I've been waiting for someone to post more than a few pictures. I cannot wait to get her, I was super bummed when I missed the pre-order period as I had watched the show after it closed, but she had popped back up on AmiAmi briefly some months back, and I snagged her SO quickly. Plus, I can't wait to get Phat's Jibril this month too.
Ah, they really did a fantastic job, her box seems a little plain but ahh, that figure is perfection.
