Image Bank: CW31 Shaak Ti

By Mike — Wednesday, October 13, 2010

 This figure is simply stunning, with soft goods that work with the super articulation underneath. We do have concerns about the long term viability of the soft goods skirt as it seems prone to unraveling, but it lays well and complements the figure overall. VC31 Shaak Ti is the latest addition to our Image Bank. Post your thoughts in our comment box!
