The fingers are too long and ruin the piece. The looks does not help either... Pass it.

Her fingers are supposed to be long.

$75? Honestly, I would rather put that $75 towards the 1/4 scale PF by Sideshow. Especially, after how the Slave Leia bust came out.

So annoyed.

For Assaj and Talon, there has been no human actress point of reference ever for them to base the sculpt from, so there are more liberties..so however they interpret them facially on the bust is ok with me.

But for this one, they have an actress for reference. How did they totally screw this one up?

God if the prototype is this bad then we should expect the final product to look worse.

The fingers are supposed to be that long guys, this has always been the case for Sing. Don't know if that is a valid complaining point to make.

maybe she is directing parking with her gun, not shooting someone. that's why she isn't bothering to aim, or squint one eye. or... look like the actress.

Fingers are supposed to be that long...sheesh.

It almost looks like they are trying to combine the Clone Wars and Live action look.

I only kept my troopers on my GG sell off, or I would buy this.

Old thread, old piece, but I just got this. I like it a lot.

Always liked Aurra since Phantom Menace and was bummed when she didn't appear in more movies. Been watching some old Clone Wars episodes and she was very good in that. Her fate mentioned in 'Solo' wasn't ideal for me, but she could always live on.

I agree that the face on this bust doesn't look that much like the actress Michonne, or the character in Clone Wars. Though she is drawn in very different ways in the comic books. The intensity suits her character. With all the extras like the guns and antenna it's quite a large piece. (Btw the antenna did adjust in length in the Clone Wars show, depending on the range needed.)

I Had loads of these busts, but sold all but 3. Kept Thrawn, Ackbar magnitude and Aurra Sing.
She's awesome in the clone wars and has some great comics too. Seriously underated character and bust, great pics too!
