I think they mean the alien character/design not the actress that portrayed it.
I can't remember, are you in Dallas, or The Dalles? The Walmarts near me have really started dropping these figures. (Woodburn, Cornelius, McMinnville)Well at least it's a good thing she's coming back again on TVC, then I'll have another shot at getting her without worrying about Exclusivity!
G8-R3 I'll have to score off of ebay because none of the Walmarts near me carry this wave!
IMO Basic figures shouldn't be store Exclusives unless you can also get them from their website!
What?? No more Aurra???I opened this figure, and I am pleased for the most part. They could have put a bit more effort into the figure, compared to the accessories though. While I like the character, I hope that it is never revisited in figure form.
First photo is new Aurra on the old speeder. Second photo has new Aurra standing with her torso rotated. I am very irritated that they would give her such an unusable torso swivel but no ball jointed hips like many other recent SW figures now have.Anyone got a pic of how the new Aurra looks on the hover bike that came with her a few years ago?
Nah, you're just accustomed to all those wide-stance figures of years pastSomething just looks odd about the legs. They're too close together.
I know what you mean. Having ankle articulation would definitely help the situation. But I wish her hips were ball jointed so she could stand differently.There's something about this figure I don't like. Of course it's much better than the prior, I'm glad I got it...but it's the pose. It looks unnatural. To straight. It's the legs, really. Something just looks odd about the legs. They're too close together.
To a large degree this is very close to a "definitive" Aurra Sing and she's a niche background character*, so I would say there's a low chance of her seeing a revisit/resculpt/retool. She'll get TVC repack and maybe appear repacked elsewhere, but I'd say this is as good as it gets with her.I'm glad you're here to tell us these things! haha I know she is being repacked, I said I hope she isnt revisited - as in resculpted a few years from now...
haven't we been over this before about the card bubble, those accessories aren't big enough IMO to be dropped because of TVC packaging.With the impending re-pack of this figure in the Vintage line, can we assume she will have the accessories? Or are they going to dump them because of the card bubble?
It's a shame she was replaced for AOTC or else we might've seen more of her on screen. She's a nice figure but her briefcase with hilts is the highlight for me.I've never noticed a cult like following for her, but I can see her appeal.
Ex Jedi turned Bounty Hunter is interesting, plus the fact she's female and Hasbro doesn't release too many of those.
I can understand how some might feel she's just a backgrounder that was given an EU back story, and don't care for her.
I hear you there. Zam was alright, I guess, but I think having Aurra in her place, as was supposedly the original intention, would have been better. Heck, they could have even worked in an extra lightsaber battle that way. It'd be cool if she showed up in the live action show (assuming that ever happens). Otherwise, it's kind of a waste of a cool character/design. They did make pretty good use of her in the Clone Wars though, I thought she was pretty cool in that.It's a shame she was replaced for AOTC or else we might've seen more of her on screen.

And that's what it boils down to is functionality, it's not so much about the extraordinary poses one might want to display a figure in.The lack of ankle joints make her a real pain to stand up, especially when her hair seems to make her top-heavy too.
Exactly. Ankle joints benefit a figure's balance greatly. Although there are exceptions, like how the echo base outfit rebel trooper has ankle joints, yet for some reason he still has difficulty standing. I think his legs might be two different lengths.And that's what it boils down to is functionality, it's not so much about the extraordinary poses one might want to display a figure in.
But more importantly include the needed articulation to achieve a simple standing stance w/o it falling, you think this might have come up during sculpting process.
