I got my second set of the new wave on Tuesday, and this group includes Bail Organa, the new Obi-Wan and Ayy Vida. Ayy Vida is probably the worst figure of the new wave. As a completest I do want all of the figures in the SW films made but Ayy Vida is just simply a boring figure. She comes with a cup and stool, and has articulated knees, and thats just about it. The figure unfortunately does not resemble the character in the film which had a little more personality than the fig. Also her Lekku tails hang to her back, even though they should hang upon her chest.
Here are the two mega letdowns though. 1st: The head of Ayy Vida is an exact duplicate of Oola. They shaved down the length of her tails slightly and took off two jewel points on her headdress. The nose is identical, the tail placement is identical, the eyes, chin, and every other curve is OOLA!!!!!!! So when you see this fig in the stores you will notice that the figures head is slightly too large for the body. Now you know why, it's a 1998 figure.
2nd: It was obvious that there is now a sculpter at hasbro who is obsessed with skin tight underwear. Like the Padme Wedding the sculpters paid more detail to Ayy's underwear line than they did her head. After sculpting the scandalous outfit, which makes you feel sorry for the fig. Just looking at her makes me feel like I left toilet paper somewhere! It's obvious that after the sculpt was finished Hasbro probably said NO WAY, and just took paint and slabbed it all over the figure in swirls and dual colors to combine the clothing and skin. Although the character in the film looks this way, you can notice her skin detail is a little different than her clothes.
This figure is terrible, both in quality and accuracy. Although I was not really excited about getting this figure I am a bit surprised they did not even make an effort to make this Twi'Lek girl slightly different than Oola. Just embarrasing!
I wanted show some pictures of these figs for you all to show you all the shocking simularities of Ayy and OOla. I did some head comparrison shots and out of 30 pictures these were the best 2. In the end the pics are failed attempts so sorry about that. No pictures this time!
