Would Hasbro ever make one with soft goods body bag?

That's a bit morbid for an action figure, don't you think? No, I don't think they will. Same reason we won't get a Aunt Beru and Uncle Owen: Charred Corpses. :)

Just take the POJ figure and slash her up a bit, then wrap some cloth over her. Hmmm, that gives me a great customizing idea...

Hehehe thats quite a matured idea but seriously I don't think so... Its just too morbid an idea... Perhaps the nearest you come to that is the emperor's hagged looking face or maybe vader without his mask...

Cheers :)

I know how you feel, I'm still holding out for a Dack after being stepped on by the AT-AT figure.:)

I agree with Jar Jar but also... we have had a few "dead" figures, Jango Fett beheaded... Zam Wesell - armless and with her clawdite face on, she could be dead.
We've had a Darth Maul cut in half too.
But the idea of a dead or dying Shmi is too morbid and it would only really be popular with people who buy everything or who have diaramas.

I think they won't make one, not for it being so "morbid", but rather because they were so hard-pressed about getting us the figure in the POTJ line. With all the delays on that figure, we're lucky to have a Shmi at all!! :eek:

Why not, I mean they included her freakin' torture rack with the Anakin figure! That is what I saw in the picture wasn't it? Why shouldn't we be able to re-enact the "Torture Vader's Mom" scene we didn't get to see in the movie? A "Shmi's Corpse" figure should be no problem whatsoever.

They could get away with a Shmi Skywalker (Tusken Capture) with slightly bloody face and a rack as an accesory, I'd really like to see that!

I was just looking at the detailed pictures of Anakin Skywalker Tatooine Attack on SSG and it turns out that it's a tusken Weapon Rack that's included.
I must admit, I did think it was the the rack that Shmi was tied to.

Episode 2 Shimi will not be made.....how long did he have to wait for Episode 1 Shimi.

Yep, as I have said before it's not the torture rack. You can see this rack in the movie, leaned against the outside of one of the Tusken hutts. :)

I just watched that scene again on my comp... And yes I agree with JarJar and Darth Trymybestus that its the weapon rack and not the torture rack that Shmi was hanged on :)

Cheers :)
