Will Dark Schneider's closest companion give in?


Before we go too far, I'll warn you at-work-readers that you might want to jump across this article just to be safe, and wait until you get home. While there's no actual nudity, I would want to get you lovely readers in trouble! Now that we've moved past that, Bastard!!'s Arshes Nei has arrived at my door and looks like she might be ready for Dark Schneider. Let's be honest? Who isn't.

Sometimes I'm not the biggest FREEing fan though, so have they done my favorite female character of the series any justice? Let's move on to the review; hit the jump and see if it touches your happy places.


Figure Name: Bastard!! Arshes Nei 1/8 Scale Painted Figure
Figure Maker: FREEing
Retail Price: ¥9,333
Available at: HLJ 

Arshes Nei

Here we have a first for me. I've never really seen a horizontal box like this up close and personal. You have a window to see the figure in the front, but the box is actually quite deep and not very tall. I guess I should have actually expected this considering there isn't much height to this figure, as she's sitting on the ground. The top of the box is graced with the classic Bastard!! logo, as well as her name, and that it's a 1/8th scale figure.

Arshes Nei

Here we see her out of her box and stuck in her plastic shell. Funny enough the figure is pretty much how it should be right inside the package. There is very little assembly to be had.

Arshes Nei

Here you can see the three pieces of the figure; the base, Arshes Nei herself, and the chain.

Arshes Nei

The sword itself is pretty well detailed, bright colored, and makes a great focal piece for the base. The paint application here was done very well. I do love how the leaves in the bushes, as well as the stone, look on the base. You'll be able to see those better in later pictures.

Arshes Nei

Let's get a look at her before adding in the chain, shall we? From above things look lovely. She has beautiful, womanly curves, and looks realistic, as opposed to over inflated due to an anime-style, as we all know they're not always realistic. Her boobs are huge, but they're not anything that I feel couldn't really exist in real life.

Arshes Nei

Alright, here is where I had a bit of a laugh. I wanted to make sure you got a view from all sides, but when I saw her behind I actually laughed out loud. Since she sits flush with the base on the ground, her butt is completely flat. Those of you who know Arshes Nei, she definitely does not have a flat butt, but it's obvious why it looks that way here. You also get a better shot of her hair here, which somewhat looks like a big ol' blobby chunk of hair, it does at least flow out a bit at the ends to break it up quite a bit. There are some nice strand details more toward the ends.

Arshes Nei

One of the details I really liked was the laced up gloves she has. They're actually untied, and coming loose, which is a great touch for the look of the figure. There is a little paint bleed going on on the arm where you can see her skin on the one in the left on this picture, but when you're looking at the figure itself, you won't notice it by any means. I love that one arm has a sleeve and the other doesn't. These classic '80s/'90s outfits really make my day.

Arshes Nei

Let's add in the chain now, shall we? It really adds an extra punch with this figure. She looks a little nervous, or perhaps it's eager? If it's Dark Schneider coming her way, I would definitely lean toward eager... or.. maybe that's just my own little mind working it that way. I mean, I'm totally not a Dark Schneider fangirl or anything... Cough.

Arshes Nei

The chain itself is nicely detailed and has a bit of a cut rough texture to it. It's a very loose chain, so you can move it nearly any way that you would want to. I am a bit afraid of rubbing off any paint, so I wouldn't suggest just dragging the chain around on the figure if you can help it. It works well to tie her up to the sword, leaving it draping across her a bit.

Arshes Nei

Look at those lovely thighs and calves! I love the way her legs are positioned, as it looks somewhat like she's trying to fight it, but more so bracing herself. When looking at it as a whole like this, it really is a gorgeous figure. The shading on her skin looks wonderful as well.

Arshes Nei

From this side's view you can get a better look at the wonderful sculpting, and shading, of her knee pad and stocking that are on her left leg. The folding and flow of the fabric looks wonderful along her entire figure. Even the boots are well detailed for being so basic.

Arshes Nei

Here's a look at her stunning lower musculature. The way they sculpted her leg that's raised up, as well as the muscles between her legs all look wonderful. The outfit kind of disappears in a certain area, but since it's a thong in the back - it happens.

Arshes Nei

You've probably noticed by now it must be a bit chilly where she is. That, or she's pretty turned on already. You never know what could be going through her mind. However, her abs are nicely sculpted underneath her suit as well. All of the paint here looks really clean, and I'm very impressed.

Arshes Nei

Something I found out on accident is that the sword can actually come out of the stone if for some reason you would like it to. She can actually somewhat hold it if that suits your needs. Her fingernails, as you might have seen in the earlier photos, are nicely painted silver - each and every one of them.

Arshes Nei

I think the facial expression of her biting her lip a bit to the side is also quite lovely. Her eyes look focused and not just like she's staring off into space, so that helps as well. This is one of the first Semi-NSFW figures I've owned, let alone reviewed, but she was a lot of fun. Arshes Nei was well sculpted, wonderfully painted, and pulls together with its base for a gorgeous figure to add to your collection. I can say I'm actually proud of FREEing's effort with this figure and would definitely suggest it if you'd like a lovely lady in your collection, or if you're a fan of Bastard!!.
