I don't buy all the dios, (esp. the PT stuff) but Shaak Ti is always a definite buy for me. This will be sweet.

Although, it makes me think that since we'll get the regular movie outfit (jedi robes) from the looks of the preview, that will get the force unleashed outfit for the premium format, which I was really hoping would be movie based.

I dunno about that...the dual of the fates, vader/obiwan and obi/anakin are better imho.

Possibly, but I think it's based on the Clone Wars micro series. Shaak Ti was one of the Jedi who faced off against Grievous in that.

Still love it. Just kinda hope they ditch the cape on Grievous - might make the peice too heavy.

Hey i guess the dio line is still alive! Woohoo! LOL!

So what is this dio based on, the old micro series or the new series? I know they fought in the old series but didn't Grievous and Shaak also have a brief fight in the season 3 premiere of the current series? During the Battle of Kamino?

Initially I thought this was based off the cut execution scene on the Invisible Hand, as Shaak Ti just seems so passive. Anyone else find her blank expression and meek defense off-putting? I just get no sense of action or drama from this piece at all. No worries if I'm alone on this but I wanted to like this piece and just can't.

I agree that the expression is very passive. Now that could be the "emotionless" Jedi, but it doesn't convey a sense of urgency. I'm alos not liking how her tendrills are almost flowing - seems like they'd get in the way alot, or at least more than they would on a Twi'lek. Lastly, I would also space them out more. From the pose it looks like Shaak Ti could easily cut Grievous, with arms out and torso exposed.

Count me as one who doesn't understand why they didn't go Kenobi. At least that duel was in a movie....

I want the Luke/Leia "swinging to freedom" dio !!!

Yeah , I wonder what ever happened to that one? That might be a must have. Grevious looks incredible in the pic. Not crazy about Shaak Ti either, yet. Have to see more pics on Tues. If it was Obi-Wan it'd be a MUST! I wonder how it would look with just Grevious?

LOL! It would probably look like Grievous was having some kind of fit considering he'd be wildly swinging his lightsabers around at nothing!

I agree that shaak ti's expression is a turn-off. my guess would be a swith-out-head for the exclusive.

I am surprised this line is continuing. SS if having a really hard time selling them, even with tiny editions sizes.

the anakin vs tuskien raiders exclusive is still readily available with an edition size of only 150.

The Anakin/Tuskens is an incredible peice!!!



Grevious looks insane, so far. Shaak Ti is the deal maker, or braker. I like the idea of swapped out heads.

I agree Anakin vs Tuskens is amazing and the new Vader vs Luke looks pretty incredible as well. Glad the line continues.

I've only just seen this, Sideshow have put it of their facebook page..., looks rather impressive BUT I'd have prefered a dead clone or two in the diorama, just to give it a little something extra!!!

Grievous looks fantastic! Shaak..........not so much unfortunately. I think she'd look better if they'd fix her face and that neck joint though. No way i'm paying $350 either, i'll just pick it up later on the secondary market if i can find it for a good price.

So here's my BIG question..........does anybody know when this fight took place? LOL! I thought it would be from the old Genndy clone wars cartoon during the Battle of Coruscant but that base doesn't seem to belong on Coruscant. I can't remember, was Shaak Ti among the jedi that Grievous layed the smack down on when he was first shown in the Genndy series? Maybe it's from that fight.............
