Attractiveness is not at issue for me at the 3.75" scale - they are not blow-up dolls after all.  :P

Am I the only one not pumped for this one? Mainly because I was never able to find Revan and Malak, I'm just like why bother snagging Bastilla when she has nobody to chill with on the toy shelf?

Bastilla wasn't my #1 choice from KOTOR...  Actually HK47 was, and now I want T3...  I just find droids more useful.  But I'm happy to get Bastilla ultimately, and part of me hopes we'll still see more.  I've wanted a lot of KOTOR figures now for a while, because the HK's and the Darths are getting lonely.  I'd really like to see more of the party make it to figure form.  Even half-assed kitbashes.

Bastilla was my most wanted KOTOR figure as well, so I am happy we are getting her.  I'd really like to see Atris too - which can be repainted / retooled to create a Jocasta Nu!  T3-M4 would be more a unique droid release, far more interesting than another OT or PT droid repaint...

Correct me if I wrong, Isn't Bastilla...Darth Reven the whole time.  I never played KOTOR

No, you're Revan, actually.  She's part of the greater story, and kind of who you're into, but you ultimately wind up as Revan at the end.

I was commenting more generally on their inability to make good-looking female characters, particularly the head/face.  They don't have to give them stripper bodies, big hair, and make-up, but they could do a better job of making figures that look remotely feminine.  IMO, this is a pretty poor representation of the source material...

I think this is a nice looking figure, as I have no conection to the character at all.  What I like about it is that Hasbro added wrinkles in the clothing so that it looks less superhero-ish, and a bit more practical.

As far as spoiler, hasn't this game been out for years?

The only thing on Bastila that looks a little off is her hairline.  Other than that I think the figure looks pretty good.

I'm a big fan of KOTOR, and I'd love to see more figures from the game.  But KOTOR came out in 2003 and KOTOR II in 2004.  The games have a significant following, but at this point in time the figures would not be topical.  That is, unless LucasArts decided to put out KOTOR III.

I think she turned out well, the only thing that looks off, as others have said is the forehead. As a huge fan of the KOTOR series I think it's great to finally be getting the odd figure here and there, and I'd love to see more, which seems unlikely unless they win fans choice polls it seems. T3 is definitley my most wanted though. HK needs his little buddy to kick around.

T3 and at least two other members of the party would be nicest to get, IMO.  From there I'd like Republic and Sith Troopers since army builders in general are always nice to get.

It appears that Tunghori is also selling Ponda Baba and the Echo base trooper.

I haven't these yet...were they posted and yanked/sold out?  I'd love to not have to buy a case of this assortment as I have no faith these make retail with all of the Revenge and other repacks also slated to come out
