Luna Luna – Queen’s Blade Rebellion

This was one figure I was planning to pick up prior to visiting Japan, after seeing it on the Mandarake website. 

Here’s her upper half, in her clothed form:

Even clothed, she’s not really that SFW, but we’ll get onto that in a minute. Her top sits nicely, and definitely looks like part of the figure when she’s wearing it, so her clothed option is definitely viable if you’re not so fond of having boobs hangin’ out. I love her four tentacles posed around her head, and her hands posed in a very dancer-ish way. I love the small details here – her rings and nail polish are both well done. 

So let’s have a look at the rest of her:

Yep. Nothin’ hanging out here at all. All good. Perfectly fine for the in-laws. Her body is well-sculpted and she has a range of details – from her shoes, to the bells on her thighs, and the gold beading encircling her lower body. Her hair also has a wonderful gradient in it, and the blending looks good. 


Here we can see where her headpiece reaches around the back of her head and also has a nice range of colour. Her hair gradient feels both subtle and vibrant. With her clothing, it dangles down and hides her bum from view. The clothing has a nice sheen to it, and I like the fact it is translucent. From this side, we can see her tentacles also have metal rings on them, which are nicely sculpted and painted. 

Now for some disassembly:

There’s a fair amount to disassemble here – both her arms, and the two tentacles that aren’t wrapper around her arms, plus her head. 

After that, we can take her top off and begin reassembling her:

Aww, still looking a bit sad here.


And this feels the way the figure has been designed to be displayed. Her pose somehow feels better like this to me. And the clear base definitely doesn’t do anything to distract the eye. 


I like the way her nipples don’t have the severe shading a lot of other figures seem to have. This feels much more natural. Here we can also admire the fastener for the beads around her midriff, if you’re not too distracted by boobs. 

Photo of her a bit less close:

Here we can see how two of the tentacles jut out from her arms, and are nicely curled around them. And her purple protrusion, that also acts as a clip for her body jewellery. Is it a penis? Is it not? Sources say no, but that doesn’t say it isn’t hangin’ out there like one. Nope, totally wasn’t this feature that attracted me to this figure. Not at all. Nope. 


I love the amount of detail put into her shoe – from the vibrant, well-painted colours to the creasing down by the sole. The leg behind her fishnets feels a bit flat though, and some of her skin could do with a bit more shading imo. 

Other leg:

I like these small bells dangling down, and their flowery appearance. The top of her fishnets also is nicely coloured and designed. Some of the green paint didn’t quite reach the edges, but I feel this is a minor gripe. 


Clearly not a real one, but it definitely seems to be doing its job. The translucent plastic is nicely coloured. 


Her pose feels very dynamic from this angle, and she is quite a lithe body type. 

Upper half:

I like her neckpiece from this angle. and her hair’s pretty. The seamlines feel nicely hidden in her hair. 


Maybe her leg is bulging a little bit too much here? The bell/flower on her leg dangles well, and feels correct for the pose. 

Closeup on the hairpiece:

It’s not terribly easy to photo, but I love the greenish colours, and the metallic finish. She’s also got some moon earrings on, one of which can be see at this angle. 


And here we can see her shapely backside. I love the way the jewellery has been don on her back, and finished the model nicely. Her hair is probably the most vibrant from this angle.

Overall, I’m really happy with this figure and glad I got her. She’s a nice piece of (tentacly) colour, in an interesting and dynamic pose. I love the darker skin tone, and the amount of smaller details that went into this figure. If you like this kind of figure, I’d recommend her. 

Nanael – Queen’s Blade – Revoltech

This is a character I decided I wanted a figure of… just because. Ended up coming across her whilst I was in Japan for a reasonable price, so picked her up:


Starting with the face shot here, as the front shot features panties. Here she is, being surprised by spilling her milk. Here, the joints do look rather strange, but her face is cute, her hair is OK in the sculpt, but I’m seeing some stray bits of excess paint. And a bit of missing pink on her hair decoration. The neck strap on her dress looks overly industrial – I think this would’ve been improved by being thinner. Her belt is nice though, and the bow on her dress. 



Here we see her uneven wings – at first I wasn’t sure if there was a piece missing, not being overly familiar with the character, and her having a joint where a wing piece could go. Found a pic of her “holding” her sword with her wing, so decided to replicate that. One thing that stands out to me is she does feel a bit overly chunky – her legs seem a bit too wide for her body. She does have a nice pair of panties though :P. Her top is nicely wrinkled, but again, feels a bit too thick of a material. Her milk bottle looks good, and has the equippable splash – you can choose if you have the milk splashing out or not. Though obviously there’s only one choice really. 

Pantsu, seeing as we mentioned them:





She naturally goes into a bit of a leaning-back pose, which fits with the milk splashing out at her. Silly angel, forgetting her bottle top! The base holds her well, but was a bit fiddly to set up. The writing is nice on the base, but a bit of a pain to get her standing so she wasn’t blocking it. 



Obvious hair seam, as her fringe removes so you can change her face. She looks good from this side imo – everything looks to be painted nicely, and she looks less unnatural in shape. I prefer the hands where she has her fingers sculpted – in these shots, her left hand looks like it’s in a mitten. 



Hair looks overly simple from the back. Wings look OK, but a bit plain on the left wing. 



Here’s the base of the base. Writing looks OK, nothing special, but nice to have something to say what the character is. I like the transparent base effect, but the base itself could’ve done with a bit more weight on the bottom – a common theme with the old Revoltech bases is they easily tip over, as they’re top-heavy  ><. 



If you want her more nude, here are the ripped clothing options. Chose not to put them on her, as it looks like it was gonna be a bit of a lengthy process to do so. We also have some hands so she can hold her sword. And a face if you want her post-milking. I think this face has been well done, and I’ll probably switch to it at some point. 

Overall, she’s an OK action figure. I think some better design decisions could’ve been taken, but there are slim-ish pickings as far as


goes. Would recommend if you want a Nanael action figure. 

Melona – Queen’s Blade

This figure I purchased from Mandarake. Prior to purchasing, I was on and off considering buying her. I preferred the colour of the green one, so this was the one I chose to buy:

I like the shades in her hair and the green slime base. The clear disc is not attached to any part of the figure, so I don’t intend to use this to display her. It’s nice if you want a consistent round base to match with other figures, but personally I prefer her without.


This side isn’t much of a viewing angle, as if hasn’t been designed to be so. We can see her cute slime slippers here, which I think look good and do a decent job of holding her to the slime stand.

Now for the reason I didn’t lead with the front shot:

She does have a skirt part that covers her genitals, but it sort of pins in place so it was a bit awkward to reassemble, so I didn’t.

I think her face looks cute from this angle, and is one of the two main angles she looks good at.


Here we can see the lovely gradient in her hair – I love this effect. She doesn’t quite rest on the stand, but later we’ll see how I get her to rest on there properly.

Upwards angle showing the back of the skirt:

The skirt in of itself is quite pretty, but has design flaws. I like the way it looks from the back, with the hole.

The main skirt flaw:

The skirt doesn’t fasten up well at all. These pegs give the feel that the skirt isn’t really much of a display option unless you don’t cast off your cast-off figures. I gave it a good go to fasten it again, but no dice. It is very hard to get into the gap to apply pressure.

Skirt separated:

Here we can see where it attaches to the stand and gives her more support, which made it feel like a mandatory part. However, without it, she can place her hand in the dimple on the slime puddle, so this skirt can be an optional part. Am on the fence if it is supposed to be a mandatory part. 

Melona cast off:

She looks nice from this angle, showing some skin. There is some shading detail on her skin, but it doesn’t feel like much. Having the peg in the slime puddle is a bit of an eyesore though. Would’ve been nice to be given a plastic piece to fit in there, though if you are looking at her from above, it isn’t visible really.

Slime close-up:

I like all these tiny slimes dotted around her body as different things. And this guy is cute, even if he isn’t functional. The green plastic does give off a slime ‘feel’.


Not too much to see here still, though you now have the curve of her butt.


Yeah, barely me difference here, but now she rests her hand in the slime pool, which does look better.

Now the shot you may’ve been waiting for:

Melona without anythin’ on. Her genitals I find a bit on the strange side, but hey, she is a slime in humanoid form. Here is where most of the darker paint went on her body, though she does have some shading on her knees. And her cute smiling face shows above her legs.

You can reveal her breasts:

And to my surprise they were painted decently well, especially given they aren’t really designed to show. Her ‘hair’ isn’t removable, so the only way of seeing her chest is to bend her slime arms out of the way. They won’t stay there naturally, but I should imagine with heat you can get them to stay in a different position. 

Overall I do rather like this figure, and think it met my expectations. This is an older figure, like the Rin Tohsaka figure I recently blogged about, and does show its age. I’d recommend this figure, if you like the look of her, though she may be hard to obtain. 

Alleyne – Queen’s Blade – Orchid Seed

This figure I was thinking of preordering, but saw one come up at a good price on MFC, so I went for it. Negotiated a bit more of a discount, due to peg damage (yeah, and it’s deffo not one I’m fixing with a bit of glue…). 

Aand this arrived:


Not surprised the Hermes lady skedaddled that day, and didn’t check to see if I was in (though she doesn’t normally). 

By the merciful Postal Gremlins she was fine though:


There is one paint scratch in her hair, but the seller’s shots don’t show that part of her hair, so not sure if that happened in transit or not. Due to the scratch’s location, it was probably prior to transit ><. 

But… she’s definitely a stunning figure. And that peg ain’t gonna be fixed – it’s a hollow peg, which allows for a metal reinforcement rod to sit inside of it, so it’ll need re-architecting to act as a peg again. She stands reasonably well as-is though. 

Alleyne’s left:


I love the leaf details on her arms. The colours work well together and they’re nicely detailed.

Alleyne’s right:


I like the way her hair flows over her arm. Her body sculpt is very much in evidence here – muscly and looking realistic. 

Her back:


Her hair flows nicely down her back, and she has some detailed butt-leaves. Unfortunately with the leaf-panties they’ve only put in one peg, so they’re very difficult to get off – had to watch a video to see how it was done, as I don’t have her instructions. Also, due to the way they come off, it’s likely to be paint transfer city, so not in a hurry to do that. Already had to remove some transfers from her hair and chest leaves, and I know there are a couple on her backside. I have the feeling that she may have not been cast off before, hence the parts rubbing some, and transferring paint. 

Alleyne with her top cast off:


Her nipples are painted nicely and realistically, which is a nice change from several of the cast-offs I own. Her arm decorations help her from looking super-plain when cast off. 

Chest close-up:

Love the details in her sculpt :). 

Alleyne’s right:

Alleyne’s left:

Not much to add on these angles. As I didn’t cast off her bottom half, I didn’t take another picture of her behind. 

Overall, I think this a very nice figure, where dressed and cast-off work well. Just a shame that they didn’t put two fasteners in her underwear to make her a lot easier to cast-off & redress. She is quite tall, and a good, chunky size. If you like what you see, I would recommend this figure. If buying secondhand, definitely find out about peg condition  she does stand OK on the one peg, but is a little on the wobbly side.
