Project details

It’s been a while since I watched any anime and having briefly checked out Queen’s Blade to catch up on this character I don’t feel too inclined to venture back to animation anytime soon. That doesn’t change the fact that Orchid Seed’s Alleyne is one of the many voluptuous starlets from the series, a character who takes au naturel to new heights by entangling herself in leaves and vines.

Orchid Seed are no strangers to nudity and Alleyne is no exception. The full-castoff option was slightly tricky and would’ve been a bit confusing if not for the English (!) manual; the bikini top comes off easily after removing the head but the bikini bottom takes a good push down the left leg after dejecting the small peg in the front.

I guess I don’t order enough 1/6 scale figures to not get surprised by the sheer size each time one arrives at the doorstep. Being 27 cm / 10.53 in tall makes for an impressive display and for a personal sweetspot in the collection. Alleyne is pretty much your regular bikini girl if not for the greenery theme which was one of the main reasons for her ending up here.

    I probably wouldn’t take Queen’s Blade as a shining example of the best anime has to offer. Although, I recall the first season having more substance than I expected for a show so focused on delivering T&A.

    I was happy to see Orchid Seed adapt this particular artwork for Alleyne. The preorder period seemingly lasted forever, but I managed to create some unnecessary drama for myself by waiting to preorder her until the last possible moment when she was sold out almost everywhere. Mine’s still in the mail, but judging from your photos I think I’ll be pleased with my purchase.

    I quite like what you did with the diorama for this shoot. The foliage and fog effect complement Alleyne’s look very nicely.

    Wow, is that dry ice there? Aside from the props you used, I love the lighting here. Makes Alleyne look sexier than usual :D

    Great job! 1/6 is my favorite scale because it seems to walk that line of being huge, but also generally well-made. 1/4 and larger figures usually seem to lack detail, or just look off in some way.

    I really like your set and the fog effect! What did you do for that?

    Ah Alleyne is the hottest Elf figure I’ve seen so far ∩(︶▽︶)∩
    Everything about her looks so good, the body sculpting is done in a quite appealing way. I haven’t stripped her yet, but her boobs look different than onn most figure, it’s very close to a more natural shape. Actually the whole figure has this natural feel, not only because of her jungle bikini ^^.

    Nice setup, have you borrowed the stuff from your exotic animals?
