From Ask Sideshow:

Q:
I hope to find that a 1/4 scale Premium Format Figure of the Jedi Aayla Secura will someday be made by Sideshow…

A:
We will pass along your suggestion. We have heard a rumor of at least one Twi’lek in the Premium Format line, although we don’t believe that it’ll be blue…

Q:
It always seemed to me the female Jedi characters of the prequel trilogy would lend themselves perfectly as Premium Format figures. Not just Aayla Secura, but Shaak Ti and Luminara Unduli (also a Clone Wars character) would make for OUTSTANDING display figures. What do you guys think?

A:
We agree, and not just for the Premium Format line. As these femme fatal Jedi get more exposure in the Clone Wars series, it becomes more and more likely that you’ll see them appear in the Sideshow range!

Tim is going to LOVE this!!!

I just wonder who it will be.I hope for a Shaak Ti,I would like a PF figure just picky about my first one.

My dream is to have a Jabba with Throne done in the Premium Format line so if we get Oola maybe thats an indication more will follow from Jabba's Palace like Lando in Skiff gear, Bib Fortuna, and a Gammorean Guard

One can dream....Right?? http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif

So I guess Oola might be made...Thats sounds cool...But again, I have 4-5 others that need to be made before any Twi'lek...

My hope is Darth Talon - she would make for a killer PF.

I would think it would be Bib instead of Oola. But then again I never thought we'd have a Slave Leia PF.

Ahsoka is not a Twi'lek.

But I agree that if it is not Oola then Darth Talon would be hard to resist.

I'd say it's have to be Bib for the 1/4 scale treatment. Oola would be good, but with the GG bust, it'd be a shame to see this doubled up now.

Bib would be cool.

Lol I have to be picky because I want my first one to be female. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gifKidding aside they have made a lot of nice figures I am just really selective when it comes to statues and bust's.A Darth Talon would rock then I would have my first.My money is on Oola[would buy] or Bib as other's have said,at least they would be OT. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

My money is on Talon. Bib or Oola would be a little too obscure in the current climate unless they were incredibly limited.

This is the theory I go with too. Even though he'd make a great PF, Bib sold rather slowly as a 1:6, and Talon with her lightsaber might have more appeal to the casual fan than Oola dancing.

Any of those three could make a great PF, so it's a win-win-win in my book, whichever it is. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

That Mystique does look FINE.....Darth Talon would most definitely make me pull the trigger. Any speculation on what the exclusive edition extra might be?

JimCorrigan
05-29-2009, 09:07 PM
As much as I would love to see a Talon PF, why in the world would they make her first over Aayla?

If they do make Darth Talon, I believe she would be the first comic only character to make it to figure form.

05-30-2009, 12:29 AM
Darth Talon? I would pass on that one even if it had a limited edition count of 50. Same with Oola for that matter. And I've had EVERY PF on order.

I'm not paying $250+ for an erotic fantasy goth sith or some kibble of rancor chow.

I don't think I'm too far off when I say that Sideshow's Star Wars PF collector base is primarily interested in on-screen characters that had a significant presence in the Saga.

I gotta agree 100% with you there. If the PF is Bib Fortuna, cool... Talon - pass. Although, minor OT characters would always have a soft spot with me. Anyways, just one man's opinion, and I am sure SSC will do their research to see which characters are most viable and diverse. If it is Talon, there must be a market, just not for me.

$50 GG bust, sure. $250 PF... no so much...

I would buy her, but I am in the same boat with some of you when I ask 'WHY?' would they even consider making her? There are so many characters to make....that were actually IN THE FILMS!
I love their PF lines. I think they are the best things that Sideshow makes...I have every single one of their Star Wars pf's but I actually do think they mishandle the line in terms of character choices. Where the HELL are 3PO and R2 fir instance!?
Oh, well. I guess we'll hear more at SDCC.

Shame it's not Aayla though. She'd be an incredible PF.

I think there should be more respect for EU after all it's what kept Star Wars alive after 83 and 05.No disrespect to anyone but if you only like what you seen on the big screen you live&know a very small part of the Star Wars universe.Just my .02

Rodders
05-30-2009, 11:59 PM
I agree, but if they're going to do EU again then we need Grand Admiral Thrawn. (Besides, Darth Talon's being done by GG.) http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Talon--nobody outside of us geeks even know who this is.
Bib--too ugly of a dude.
Oola--this is my guess. SS wants something to compete with GG's new bust.

Very true, but with Dooku being limited to 750 and the Biker Scout to 500, it's not a stretch to imagine a 250-500 production run selling out.

HA HA ... Orna is Blue so it's def not him! That would be HUGE!!!! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

I bet it is OOLA... She makes the most sense. They can get a really cool pose and she will compliment Jabba's other girl... what's her name???? Yeah, Leia! I could see them doing Bib Fortuna, but they already did a 1:6 scale figure which is still available, so my bet is it's a new character they have yet to do. Also, Oola is more prevelantly known to the majority of the public and is more appealing to a grander audience. If it's Oola, this will be my first 1:4 scale purchase. Hope they announce her soon!!! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

06-19-2009, 01:12 PM
As much as i like Oola, she's been done by Attakus and soon there'll be a GG bust.

If it is Talon, I can safely say no thanks. A mini bust or 1/6 of an EU character is fine, but not a PF - my personal preference, of course. Hope everyone who does want one can get one. I'm sure it'll look great.

Especially when it is of a cool looking character (Talon) or of a character with real merit like Thrawn! I would buy a Thrawn and a Jade PF in a New York minute!

slynger
09-30-2009, 09:57 AM
I agree with you there SirT - Thrawn has a place in Star Wars, a place that was earned, as does Mara - video game characters and comic characters (most not all) just don't merit a PF figure.

Regardless of my views, Talon is a very killer looking character, a Sith (always a plus) and if the figure is a little bit dynamic in pose I will most likely get her.
