Not sure if she'd make an interesting action figure for kids but if Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo played by Laura Dern is a big role she deserves an action figure at least in a collectors line. Anyone want to see her in action figure form?

Gee, Vice Admirals sure do dress differently in the ST.

LOL! I'm pretty sure this is what she wears at a formal event...

I'll take a stab at it and say she's gambling away at the casino on Canto Blight with all the other suited aliens. Maybe she's the person Finn is trying to reach? Just a wild guess.

I'd be good for getting one of her in this outfit but I think it would need to be an SA figure and not the standard 5POA

Yes with really good velvety feeling soft goods like the ERG

Today's Hasbro won't go near this character, at least in this outfit, with a 10 foot pole.

The Hasbro of before 2013 would be all over this, and countless other characters. But this company no longer cares about 3.75" action figures... hopefully that is changing.

all depends on if she plays a larger role in TLJ? I mean Disney is now in charge too and can tell Hasbro... hey She's a strong Female character that we want to have as an action figure for all the young girls to look up too.

True, but if she really is a major character (as opposed to just appearing in a scene or two), I'm sure she'll have a more ready-to-wear outfit than this Met Gala gown.

Well, if made I'll finally get a Dr. Ellie figure!

I'd like to see her outrun a T-Rex in that outfit!

Kenner did make her back in the JP1 toyline :p It's more of a "kids" toy though by todays standards.

Judging by the LEGO pic of her figure she does have a military looking outfit.

I've heard she's going to be General Leia's competitor or something like that.

Masterfett

Probably not competitor, they aren't in competition for anything. More likely they are rivals, from previous time when the New Republic Senate actually served a function.
Now they are probably just adversaries.

Although I don't know why a new character was invented for it, maybe because she needed an equal? Since Rey has Kylo, and Luke has Snoke.

I'm predicting at least a two-pack figure issue. If Hasbro is silly enough to make a Resistance officer uniform Poe Dameron (whose barely seen for a few seconds) and looks nothing like him, count on it.

Masterfett

In this dress, possibly not. But if she's seen in Uniform as an Admiral in the First Order, this is more likely.

Rumors going around Mattel will be debuting a Jurassic Park classic line before the end of the year so you may be in luck with getting a new figure of her anyway.

Masterfett

Probably will be 6". lol

I hope not... I'm really hoping the Mattel gives us a decent line of 3.75" figures and vehicles and Dinosaurs.. I really want a 3.75" scale JP Jeep and Ford Explorer as well as a 3.75 Ian Malcolm.

So for any Twin Peaks fans out there - maybe we will be getting a figure of the mysterious Diane?

So do we know for sure if she's a Republic Admiral, First Order Admiral, or Imperial Admiral?

Deak_Starkiller

I would think she would be on the side of the Republic, and considering that a good chunk of her fleet is gone, there could be some potential conflict between her and Leia regarding the Republic's apparent support of the Resistance.

Confirmed Republic.

Having seen the movie, I'm a bit surprised a figure for this character has yet to be announced. She is probably the biggest absence in the figure line, next to no Snoke in the basic assortment.

I think it may take some time, but I would like to get a Vice Admiral Holdo figure. She was pivotal in Poe's character development. And she played a tremendous role in helping the Resistance fight on.

I agree, and its an important cameo role from a known actor, just like Saw in RO. If DJ got a figure, Holdo better! Perhaps in the multipack for the home release. Connix would be another great figure for that set.

It would be nice if the 4pack was Leia, Poe Dameron (without a headset), Holdo, and Snoke.

That would be quite a few repacks there. If they throw her in a set I suggest:

Holdo
Connix
Resistance Trooper
First Order Commander (reuse Finn FO body)

Important role doesn’t equal guaranteed figure these days.

JVM

I think Holdo has a reasonable chance of seeing retail - not a guarantee by any means, but if there was another wave of only TLJ figures past what we already know, she would be a shoo-in, and I think if Solo was coming out six months later, it'd be about a slam dunk... but we only have six months and the second wave's barely shown up, so not holding my breath. Still, she's hardly as obscure as the Bobbajo we all wanted.

Agreed. But seeing how there’s now an 18 month gap between the release of SOLO and Episode IX? That no doubt opens things up for Hasbro as they keep the line moving forward.

Might be a good option for the blu ray/DVD 4-pack. More of a figure for diehards than casual fans, might be less retail risk that way. Would also like a TLJ Ackbar and Lt Connix, aka Kaydel Ko, aka Carrie's daughter.

While we're at it, would welcome any others too, like Ematt, salty, Gareth, the lady with the prominent nose and curly hair. But I recognize that there are practical limits.

just looked her up on IMDb, name is Commander D'Acy, played by Amanda Lawrence.

...yeah, I know. I'm the kind of guy who also wants all the Scarif rebels, blue squadron, and so on too :rolleyes:

That would be something to catch my interest.
But I'm definitely not going to buy her if he's packed with Rey, Finn and Poe. it'll be ebay all the way. Well, unless I can get it for $7 like the Saw set! :grin:


Considering the line is seriously lacking in secondaries, something is needed.

True. But if I was Hasbro I wouldnt be prioritising a female in an evening dress! (and neither will they)

Yeah, more supporting cast would be fantastic, now that Hasbro knocked out the core characters. They could even do an all Resistance multipack for the home release: Holdo, Connix, repacked Poe (from speeder), and perhaps a new alien such as Bollie Prindel or Vober Dand - both of which were in TFA and TLJ.

I'd really like a figure of Holdo, especially considering she had one of the most visually stunning scenes in the entire saga.
