Orchid Seed's Alleyne looks gorgeous even when unpainted

It's all about the thighs

We caught a glimpse of Orchid Seed's upcoming Alleyne figure (NSFW) at the Miyazawa Model Exhibition, but I've been wanting more than just a glimpse. Luckily the folks at Akiba Hobby posted more shots of Alleyne from the expo, giving us a better look at the figure.

Normally I'm not too high on Queen's Blade or swimsuit figures, but this one's very appealing. There's enough detail to generate some visual interest. The best detail is that the swimsuit is made of leaves. In the unpainted form, she kind of reminds me of Poison Ivy. Don't think I've overlooked the fact that she's rocking some abs. This version of Alleyne is no kung fu waif.

The only thing that's a bit off, as far as I can tell, is her face. It looks too small for the head size - but maybe she just has really big hair. The rest of the figure looks great, though, and I can't wait to see it painted. There isn't any release info yet but I'm definitely keeping an eye on this one.
