Haha I found an old review Draft in my post folder, since some time I planned to publish it, but today is the day where I will show you an edited and updated version of this review.
The figure in this review is Alice which was made by Alpha x Omega, I thought that the first review from years ago was no good and didn’t want to leave it like that and trashed it.
Alice is a 1/8 scaled figure with a height of 145 mm, she was manufactured by Alpha X Omega,
(a collarboration between Alter and Megahouse) and her release was date in August 2008.
This Alice is one of my older, favorite figures, the combat loli whose origin is the Queen’s Gate Battle book series, also had a mayor role in the PSP Game Queens Gate Spiral Chaos.
The full name of this character is Alice Faye and she is known as a human treasurehunter, her weapons are two really customized Mauser C96 guns and a whip. She looks very young and has a petite body, but one of her special abilities is that she can grow into an adult woman when she wants to. There was also a figure made of Alice in her adult form from Megahouse.
The characterdesign of Alice was made by Nishii here are some Illustrations from the book.
As Alice was announced I was drawn to her unique and beautiful appearance, as fan of twintails it would have been a shame not buying her, even when her loli appearance in such a revealing outfit threw me into doubt, back then where I just started with collecting figures and had only a little experience with less modest figures. Compared to back then, nowadays I couldn’t care less about her being a seductive loli, like I also don’t care about busty figures 😉
The head of this figure is very well sculpted, her face has a nice tone and blushmarks, her facial expression depends on the viewng angle, it differs from cute, fierce to serious. Alice has beautiful piercing red eyes, which add a lot to her expression. The flow of her long hair is very detailed with these freely sculpted strands it appears very light. The hair has a few more unclean spots all around, but it’s not such a big deal from a normal distance. The hair has a nice color and shows some shading. Another eyecatcher are these scary black puppets at her twintails.
I modified a jacket into a cute and more innocent dress to give her a different appearance.
The unique bend over pose with the crossed arms looks cool. Alice’s body is quite petite, she has small arms and short, thin legs. As to be expected from a loli character, her breasts are small but have painted nipples from the backside her butt looks quite interesting with Alice’s white panties in need for adjustment and one of her buttocks is visible, I like this part of her.
It seems that the outfit is a bit inspired by Batman ;D, it’s just coincidental. Her corset dress doesn’t really cover much of her body, although it looks really cool. The black corset is very well sculpted with some silver colored buttons and rivets. The corset can be equipped with long brown weapon holsters, it is is partially castoff able, not that the corset would have covered much anyway .
Overall Alice’s outfit is really cool further details are the black gloves, the bat winged arm rings and the thigh-high stockings which are accenting her legs nicely. The half-boots with the white skull heart decals are also very cool. The weapons are two Mauser C96 guns with sawed off barrels and army knives attached, even these weapons show an incredible level of detail.
It’s a bit difficult to put them in the hands of the figure you’ll need a lot of force for it, so at first I decided not to use them. Later I could put the weapons in her hands somehow.
The base is a transparent round disk with her name carved on it, by todays standards this base is really simple, but in 2008 such things didn’t really matter as long as the base full filled it’s purpose of a secure stand for the figure.
Alice is a cool looking combat loli with a load of nice details everywhere. The paintjob is very well done and the hair is beautiful. The face didn’t really matches the cuteness from her illustrations, albeit her face looks still pretty and very well sculpted. Her petite and small body is really appealing especially with that great outfit she is wearing. After quite some years of owning her, there no turnoffs or damages, it’s a great figure and still one of my favorites. The pictures I took are from different dates between 2008 and 2014 and made with different cameras.
See you next time
Queen’s gate Alice very nostalgic, actually she’s the first scaled figure I wants, first time saw her in a store around 6 or 7 years ago, for $80 I think not price for stuff that I usually buy at that time(only used to bought robot and gundam stuff lol) ^^ I really like the gun blades, she a really a nice one 😀 not much idea about what she was of course. not that I still really want her like what I used to be but still my first love to scaled figure 😀
She’s quite the old figure, but still really cool. 2008 was a year where figures started to become interesting. I just started collecting then, I guess she was my 3rd or 4th figure. Hehe I only build 2 Gundam models. Compared to today she was quite cheap, well new figures have improved hair quality, but aside from that she looks remarkable good. Good to hear ^^
When I return there, she already sold so yeah left me heartbroken lol, and after checking on the net yeah I just realized that she’s quite popular, other than mecha I also did purchase on anime merchandise back then but mostly are trading figures and gashapon ^^
I guess is batman is a girl, this is how she’ll look like. Sexy and cute.
What I like most about this figure is the weapons. They’re so detailed, well crafted. The whole figure is elaborated is the sense that every inch of it is well thought of and well sculpted. By the way, what do you mean by you modified a jacket? You made her an outfit?
That might be true ^^
This was a very convincing figure back in the days, the details are rather impressive.
Yeah I cutted a doll jacket, I once got for cheap and made a dress for Alice, it looked rather nice ^^
