Commentary: For once Hasbro got it right-- or did they get it wrong? Few figures can be shown to fans and get very different reactions like Stass Allie, which is the first-ever release of the character as a figure that wasn't simply another figure with a new name. By and large, it's a good set-- you get a newly sculpted Jedi Knight and a vehicle for about $10. The figure has the basic six points of articulation (that's bad) plus wrists (that's good) and a good sculpt (also good.) There's no lightsaber, unfortunately, which means this release isn't going to be "good enough" for most fans-- we're still going to want one that has a decent amount of articulation and a weapon. However, she's absolutely wonderful as a BARC Speeder pilot, and since that's what she comes with, that's probably what you'll be using her for if you buy this. You could do worse!
Collector's Notes: This was one of the worst selling deluxe figures in 2005-- well, maybe not in terms of numbers, but piles of unsold figures sat in pretty much every store I had the fortune to visit. The main reason to buy this is for the vehicle, and that's supposedly coming out with some Clones in 2007. Despite being a pegwarmer of incredible proportions, the fact that she has a vehicle with her makes her exciting to a lot of collectors, and you'll be lucky to find her for $10 before shipping. More than likely, she's going to cost you more. (MORE IMAGES COMING SOON)
