Oh yeah, that scene where a padawan donned a disguise to infiltrate the handmaiden ranks, and saw the secret handmaiden pillow fights.  Won't that be in the rerelease?

Yeah, that's pretty damned bad looking.  Not turning out to be the greatest figure with that nasty face and it's rainbow gown.  Bummer, after waiting for her/him/it for so long.   :(

Geez, that is one ugly figure.

Well, I guess this handmaiden is better than NO handmaiden?  Maybe?

Yeah, that really isn't a good likeness, face wise.  Almost looks like one of the Dignitaries we got last year.  I guess actually having a handmaiden figure is nice, although they could have done a little better job on it from the looks of it.

I'm just glad they didn't call her Padme.  Good lord.  I wonder how old the sculpt is - could be as old as '99.

I got mine today and of the 2 in the case, one had an actually OK paintjob on the face, and it looks a little better than the GH pics. The 2nd though looks horrible.

Not a great figure at all. But the head seems to be on a ballsocket, but I'm afraid to pull too hard to find out for sure. Why they didn't sculpt the headpiece as a two part section, with the hood overlapping a seperate head/red inner wrap thing underneath I don't know.  Would have probably solved the biggest problem with the look of the fig.

If her neck's the new (pop right on/off) ball/socket I'm wagerin then that she's a new sculpt...  If it's the old pin with molded-on pliable head, then I'd think she could be older.  Given her sub-par look it's disappointing. 

The sounds of a street-walker variant and sorta ok variant though give some hope...  The figure's not "much" though, so I'm kinda curious if this won't turn into a pegwarmer.  Given the shipping timing on these...  Eh, could see heavy distribution leading into X-Mas, and peg-warming.  :(
