The wait is finally over! Jibril is my first 1/4th Bunny Figure - I will say, I am thankful that I’m not a huge bunny fan, as after getting her I wonder how people can collect so many of them! I loved Jibril though and had to have her bunny figure and am happy I pre-ordered her (I also have Zero Two on pre-order, but that’s it - I might have ordered Milim if her suit wasn’t black :C). Anyway, she was well worth the wait, I was honestly expecting to get her 1/12th scale before her bunny so getting this first left me shook.

Anyway, you can see in some of the pictures that my box came a little damaged (made worse by my cat deciding to sit on the top LOL - the pictures are BEFORE cat butt). I’m not too fussed about that, because, as long as my figure is protected it did its job. I do like my NGNL boxes, they always tend to be my favorite. The sort of regular cardboard of this box is a bit weird as it’s the first that I’ve gotten like this, but it’s nice and the design is cute.

Here she is outside of her box in her blister. As you can see its Jibril, her wings & her halo all packaged. I was a little scared popping open some of the… well, whatever those things in the blisters are called as they were really firm, so it made me worried I might break something.

Here she and all her pieces are outside of the box. Getting the wings in was easy enough, you just had to find the right place to apply the pressure to get them to slide in.

Now, one thing I will say is the work on the wings was a little… sloppy? I’m not sure if it’s a defect in the mold or just sloppy work on mine. It’s not a major issue as overall they still look good, but you can see what I mean in the photos.

Now here she is in all her 360 glory! She’s perfect - I do regret not getting Stephanie, I’m hoping I can grab her at some point, because she also looks amazing in the pictures I’ve seen.

For those curious, here is a view from under.

Also, a view of her without her wings attached. Bunny Jib’s got the booteh.

And with the wings!

One thing that’s a little disappointing is that her cute lil bow tie is hard to see! It’s super cute but her arm makes it hard to see from the front, but it’s a cute little accessory.

Her little arm cuffs - I like that the button on them is pink. It’s a nice little accent that matches it with her outfit.

I think no matter what figure it is from the series, one of the focal points of NGNL figures is ALWAYS the hair. The hair on Bunny Jibril does not disappoint. She has lots of it and it has the beautiful rainbow color that I love so much. It does have some weird seam lines/the shading on top seems a little weird, but overall it’s beautifully done.

It wouldn’t be Jibril without her tattoos. Her leg tattoo is easier to see than her arm tattoo as it’s covered by hair and the little band around her arm, but both are there and looking great.

I love how they did her expression and the cute finger to her mouth. Another focal point with NGNL figures is the eyes and hers came out great on this figure. The nails are nicely painted (which is a very nice detail that they didn’t need to add but adds a nice element to the figure)

So I thought that since she has no base and honestly the Phat Jibril figure base is too big for well, the figure it came with, it might work with bunny Jibril and it does. She takes up most of a shelf anyway, so no space is being lost by adding it under her.
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/02/04/2379537.jpeg

Also, here are some comparisons with - Phat’s Jibril, Jibril Nendoroid, Chibi Jibril that comes with Phat’s Shiro & 1/12 Stephanie.

And here she is on her shelf - I keep looking over and laughing because damn she really is big and it’s just going to take some getting used to.

I hope I won't sound too annoying, but with the base you are using, her right hair sticking out on the right side means that it could sag over time and that would really be a shame to see happening to this figure. :( So maybe you can add something of the same height (piece of plastic? stack of small papers?) underneath the loose hairpiece to prevent this?

Anyway, thank you for this review and the nice pictures! I especially like the see-through stocking on top of her thigh tattoo. Tattoos in general are rare on figures and I like how it adds here to the bunny look. :)

I feel like because she is a bunny figure Phat's base makes her fit into the whole NGNL a little better by bringing the checkered pattern to her. It's funny how well she fits on it because the Phat figure is so much smaller.

I asked on her figure page and it seems like it's a common issue (although to a lesser extent for some people) so it must have been a mold issue. It is sad to see especially for the price they charged for her.

I had actually seen a bunny figure out of box at animeNYC this year but somehow I still wasn't prepared for how big she was going to be. I was like o3o Her face is the size of phat Jibril's face + upper body. I'm not sure what the heck I'm going to do when Zero two comes because she's too tall for a detolf so I'm probably going to try and make some kind of case for her, thankfully, I have a few months to worry about that. I'm just glad, most bunny figures do not appeal to me - I think it's because like 80% of them have black suits and it's so boring. I do think the poses for Rem and Ram are cute if I was a bigger fan of the series I probably would have wanted Ram.

She looks absolutely beautiful! There are a few small details that I really like and appreciate with her. Phat's base works surprisingly well with this Jibril, too. Even though I won't be getting her, I'm really excited for you and everyone else who got her/will get her.

I know everyone else has mentioned this already, but I need to mention it too. Her wings are incredibly disappointing, and as someone who adores angel wings, I'd probably be contacting customer service if it happened to me. I'm glad you don't seem to be too upset though.

I own ITEM #549503 so I know exactly what you mean when you say that a figure being so big will take some getting used to. I didn't know what to expect from a 1/4th scale, and she kept making me giggle a little when I first made more room for her (I did not make enough room originally). I'm used to her size now though, and she's still super pretty. I also know what you mean when you say "some weird seam lines" because for some reason, Ram has beautifully sculpted hair, except for one piece sticking out at the back with a really obvious seam line and it looks kinda bad. I guess it's a running trend throughout B-style figures, maybe?

I had thought about it - I'm pretty sure FREEing is owned by GS and I know they have great customer service, but I find that I'm not really bothered by it because once the wings are on you can't even really see it. I do wish I knew if it was a common thing or just on mine.

I was disappointed about not being able to use the base with the Jibril she came with, but to lose a whole detolf self... there was no way. But, ended up being a win-win because it works so well with Bunny Jibril and kind of ties her into the NGNL better with the checkered base.

I wish there were more pictures to know if it was something on all of them or just something got messed up on mine. But I'm so happy to have her because best girl.

She turned out great!! other than those wings, though. Personally I would contact FREEing to see if they'd send replacements, never hurts to ask. But I really love how she almost perfectly fits on the base for Phat's Jibril, that's actually pretty cool and a nice use for it since many people display her without it.

The wings are really disappointing. I'm glad it seems to be the underside, but honestly ... that mold would have made me throw a fit. I'm not really one for bunny figures, but I like her pose and her expression a lot. Looks great on your shelf!

Yeah the work on the wings was disappointing :C I'm not sure if it's an everyone thing or just mine. Thankfully, it can't really be seen when the wings are on her, so it's not a huge eye sore but a little bit of a problem.

She's beautiful (°◡°♡) I can't wait to get my Jibril.

The one thing that's a big bummer is her blotchy wings (,,꒪꒫꒪,,) to me, that's an iconic characteristic for Jibril and that kinda makes me nervous that her wings looks like that...
