Confirmed at the Hasbro panel at SDCC, looks like Aurra is coming as part of the WalMart exclusive wave in early 2012.

Sounds pretty cool. I'm all for bounty hunters... as long as she doesn't come with a lightsaber

Seriously, George has a fetish for pasty skinned, bald bad girls from the beyond.


Power to those that are, but I've never been interested in Aurra - or Ventress, or Sly Moore, or Leesub..

It's not nearly as bad as the Half-naked Twi'Lek chick fetishism.

Re: Aurra Sing - 2011

New Aurra would be cool - never got the POTJ one


Wonder what accessories she'll come with

Re: Aurra Sing - 2011

For a blip on the screen and now a massive amount of EU, she certainly is a compelling looking character, and will hopefully be a compelling looking figure! I like my POTJ version, but will probably get this one, especially if they "knock it out of the park"!

The Clone Wars Aurra does look great and if it is anything like the Clone Wars Ayla they just put out then sign me up!

Another character I don't like. I think she could be some kind of exclusive or something cause on a vintage card this could be a nasty pegwarmer.

Re: Aurra Sing - 2011

Wonder if she'll have the head antenna. The POTJ one didn't.

Remember all the hype that was built up about this character for a while after TPM? That she was going to play a big part in the story, have some major role...then nada. Except in the EU.

Would have been interesting if they used her instead of Zam Wessel in AOTC.

Yeah I think that was what they had in mind for her, then changed her to Zam.

Also it will be interesting to see if they have the wierd long fingers, which she doesnt have in TCW or Sideshows PF statue.

Re: Aurra Sing - 2011

I remember being very unimpressed with the original Sing back in the day. Why sculpt one working holster on a character that has two holsters? Lazy! Then there was the gum rifle! V-Crotch horrors, forgotten antenna, easily broken fingers too. Just one lousy figure IMO. So I can't wait to see the new one! SA please!

Looking forward to her. More bounty hunters are never a bad thing.

Re: Aurra Sing - 2011

I'm glad to hear about this one. With her in TCW, it's a safe choice for Hasbro.

It's a much needed resculpt, the older figure is way out of date by todays standards so it's great to hear Hasbro has plans for a realistic version.

Re: Aurra Sing - 2011

Agreed. That sculpt is really out-of-date. I'm actually looking forward to this figure.

Do you account for that high a percentage of the market?

Seriously, this isn't a terrible choice. The old one was OK for it's day, but could stand an update. It allows them to basically put an EU figure in a TPM wave, and, even more importantly, put a character that is recognizable to TCW kids in the realistic line.

Re: Aurra Sing - 2011

I think as long as they do this figure nicely, then it will be a win for them.

Because not only can she be used for TPM but also she is so neat visually that she could be used anywhere in the Star Wars timeline (it helps if you think outside of the box).

Yes I think they should have done. And used Sabe,and Rabe fore Dorme and Corde. And Panaca fore Thypo which was the plan. And of course Adi-Stass, Eeth-Agen, Deepa-Sar.

Yeah there was the whole "Femme Fett" rumor craze that there was going to be a little family of Fetts, and "Femme Fett" would just make a cameo in TPM but play a larger role in the other 2 PT episodes.

Seeing as how Zam's career ended as it did I'm glad they didn't go that route. I'm probably going to buy the Clone Wars figure to have till this one comes out.

Re: Aurra Sing - 2011

This might be one of the few figures in this line I'd go out of my way to get. I neve got the POTJ one either, so if this one is better: I'm cool with it.

Re: Aurra Sing - 2011

I'm psyched for this figure. It's one of the POTJ figures I've been waiting on an update for. The CW fig looks noce so I'm hoping for good things on this version as well.

Re: Aurra Sing - 2011

So she's been confirmed for 2011, but we don't when she will be out right? Early, mid or late 2011? I am sure that they will do a good job based on the what they did with the CW version.

Re: Aurra Sing - 2011

I like this weird and deadly looking bounty hunter. This is one of the few characters from TPM I'd love to see get a good figure. I'll take it.

Re: Aurra Sing - 2011

The POTJ sculpt was great, just had awful articulation. It will be interesting to see how they manage to pull this one off and still keep her tight jumpsuit-covered body look right. I bet the hips will give them trouble, as they did with the last sculpt.

Re: Aurra Sing - 2011

This is awesome news, even if somewhat expected. I just hope they find a way to better execute the antennae.

Something along the lines of the animated versions articulation only just a realistic sculpt would be fine.

I forgot about the CW version! I haven't even paid attention to how that one's hips look.

EDIT: I just went and looked in the CW forum. I don't like her hips.

Re: Aurra Sing - 2011

I've got to say, the CW version is a magnificent figure. Barring that oversized antenna, she's pretty passable as a realistic version. Unless they're doing another Wal-Mart Jedi version, this is almost unnecessary.

Re: Aurra Sing - 2011

I kind of hope she is in an "alternate" outfit, like the one in the 2006 Saga Collection. I'd love an Aurra figure, but we just got her TPM outfit in the CW line.

Re: Aurra Sing - 2011

How they described her is even more impressive. I think they are finally giving her a case with the lightsabers of the Jedi she has killed... I so can't wait for this figure. I think they are finally going to knock her out of the park. The black outfit figure was good, but it was a black outfit. I think they finally have her this time.

Re: Aurra Sing - 2011

This being a Walmart exclusive wave worries me... Hasbro has done this before with other lines, and they've tended to be hard to find (except for the real stinkers). I have no doubt Ric Olie will stick around, but Aurra's sought after as it is, and Walmart has a bad track record of distributing its exclusive figure waves.
