yes, they do take up a lot of space, but in my opinion they are some of the best work coming out of hasbro right now. with the help of some of our better forum members here, i managed to get my hands on the full set (so far). of course, every time they release a new series, it seems like i need to find somewhere new to put them... in these pics they are sitting on top of 3 bookcases in my computer room. but, it looks like they need to be moved when the next series comes out.

Real nice looking collection you have there jokabofe!  Also, I see today that SirSteve's Guide has some prototype shots up of the upcoming Aayla Secura unleashed.  I've pretty much been sticking to OT-only with these, but I'm sure this one will be popular.  You can check out a couple of pics here:

Nice, but not what I expected.  Although I can see the gracefullness of the figure.  Can't wait to see the final product.

Yes, I was just popping over here to post the link, when I caught it was already reported on the front page.  I really am pleased with the pose.  I like the elegant look and can't wait to see her painted.  I was hoping it was more in this fashion and not some wild, disheveled look.

So, that leaves the Tuskan Raider pose as the last one to see.

I think she looks great.  The best thing about the Unleashed series is that they are the only series where the final product usually looks better than the prototype.

Originally I was not interested in the Aayla. BUT, having seen this piece, and the elegance/detail... I've changed my mind. I may very well purchase this... Elegance was not what I expected.

Totally not what i expected either.  I dont like it to much, she looks like she is dancing!  But i think they could of made her alot better, i was thinking that since her figure was great, that her unleashed would do good. But i guess i was wrong.  Hasbro is being crappy now anyway, look at all the re-hashed fans choice figures!

I don't collect the Unleashed line, but like the dirty little collecting perv that I am, I did for some reason pick up the Unleashed Slave Leia.  Just too cool to pass on.  I may do the same with the Aayla figure as well.  Besides, they'll make nice bookends to a cool illustration I've got an illustrious artist hard at work on...   8)

I wish they had gotten the Arena Padme a little better though, as she would've fit nicely with these two.  Mara Jade anyone?

Star Wars sex appeal, at it's finest...   ;D

I'm not all that thrilled with this new Aayla Secura figure.  She looks okay I guess, but I was looking for something more "unleashed" than this.  I was hoping she'd be slicing through a Super Battle Droid or someone else on the Separatist side (maybe even a Geonosian Warrior).  This is a figure that I will still end up buying, but it could have been done better IMO.

That would indeed be an awesome figure to have.  Wouldn't have to be dramatically different from the EU figure to make me happy, though I'm sure it would.  Wow, what a great suggestion :o

Wow, good choices there.  I'd like to see a Stormtrooper, Bespin or Endor Han, Bespin Luke, Biker Scout, Skiff Lando, Old Ben Kenobi, and Ewoks (liked MisterPL's sketch) to name a few.  If they could get into a little larger scale, I really like the ideas of Hoth Han w/ Tauntaun and the Wampa.  Those would look sweet.  Jabba would be cool too, but I'm not sure how they would "unleash" him :).
