    SideShow Aayla Secura!!!

    I haven't bought a SideShow figure since the Palpatine 2-pack.

    But I'm Sooooo getting Aayla! She's been on my wish-list for a while (look up the post!).

    From what I can see, she looks great. I'm not sure I'll be able to attend Comic Con though, so I'll probably order the Non-Attendee and not worry about picking her up. Besides, even if I DO get to go, any LINE I get to skip standing in is a good thing if you ask me. I go to Cons for the panels and to chat with the fans, not to shop.

    But nevertheless, Aayla looks great! This figure needed to be done!

    Blue babes are cool!

    Easy pass for me. Not only do I not care about the character, and the face looks off to me, but I think the bare midriff doesn't work well visually with that Sideshow body.

    I only saw a headshot and didn't have time to look further. I thought the face looked like a pretty good Amy Allen. So I was satisfied.

    It's a bummer we don't get to see that cute little blue belly button, but it's probably the only way you can make her do extreme poses, much like the Unleashed version.
    Think I'd rather have her than Bikini Barbie though, and it's the closest thing to having a doll, without really having one, so I can get away with it.

    It's an easy pass for me since my focus is OT/EU Imperials and droids. But she looks pretty cool.

    This one look really good. I was trimming my focus with these down to either just ANH characters, or maybe just Sith. This one looks like a winner though.

    Hmmm. I'm not going to make it to Comic-Con this year, but I may need to order this one anyway.

    And, it's always nice to have a picture close to look at (I think), so...

    What's up with the Jedi robe? Aayla's almost never been seen wearing one. Maybe when she was young, training under Quinlan Vos in the comics, but it's not really her style.

    From what I understand, the Jedi wear their robes to hide their features so that if Aayla had a mission on Rodia, she could cloak herself and no one there would see her hands were blue instead of green, etc. etc.

    However, by posing as an "escort girl" or Twi'lek mistress, sometimes a spoiled Twi'lek princess, she usually went in under cover as her own species and others underestimated her, not pegging her for a Jedi.

    I guess SideShow wanted to add value to the package and give her a Jedi robe anyway. That's fine. I can use the cloak for one of my AOTC Hasbro 12" Jedi figures of Obi-Wan or Anakin that should have came with one.

    I'm trying to think of what accessories Aayla should come with. Standard Jedi gear (commlink, hilt, ignited saber, food capsules, aqua breather maybe, etc.) but what else? A Geonosian battle droid head (re-used from whichever figure came with that before)? A mini-hologram of Quinlan Vos would be awesome! Or maybe data cards showing "Wanted Criminal" mugs of Aurra Sing and Vilmah Grahrk? That'd be cool. I could see another statue (this one from the Jedi Temple or something) as a lame pack-in. But the Dooku headbust sculpt would be awesome!

    I was bummed to see this figure offered as a exclusive at a CON! She's my most wanted figure from this format, but i have no way of going to San Diego, is there any way i could order one from side show? Because if i couldn't get this figure i wouldn't buy any SS future stuff...even if they did make Jacen!

    Honestly, I don't get why someone would prefer a guy in a helmet with little or no back story over a EU character, and if this guy in a helmet does have a backstory it's EU!!!!

    Yeah, they always make con exclusives available in limited numbers to PPO people who can't go, it just costs in shipping and sometimes a few bucks extra to the pricetag as well.
