Light up sabers would have been a welcome bonus, but only if they were plug-in, as batteries suck.
The sabers look white, nice enough without a light up option.

very cool Ahsoka. Looks amazing! Congratz! For that piece I think a higher display is good. What do you think?

Neither high or low. Middle (waist height) display seems ideal.
The plan is to display Ahsoka next to the Mandalorian
Both pieces feature a base that represents a section of ground.

Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly (deluxe with light up base) 1/4 by Star Ace Toys Ltd.

A new piece for the collection, the movie side of the collection.
The 35% off as part of Sideshow Collectibles Daily Deals tipped me into picking up Audrey.

Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly represents the 1st piece to join the 1/4 collection by Star Ace Toys Ltd.

The statue looks really nice. Smooth casting, no signs of graining.

The skin paint app features various details.

The black dress made from smooth black fabric works well.

The long metal rod to which the cigarette is attached is made from metal. The cigarette is well painted.

Holly Golightly black shoes look on the large side. Luckily the dress hides most of the shoes.

The round circular blue'ish base to which attach two silver back panels, while looking basic, suit the style of the statue well.

Holly Golightly attaches to the base via a thick square metal peg.

Overall the statue looks very good. The actress likeness looks pretty.

-

If i wanted to be hyper-picky..

The plastic silver jewelry on Holly Golightly head and neck looks.. cheap, not so well definition.

Holly Golightly's right eye (on the left side of the image) sits slightly higher than her left eye ..statue eye's amount to a lottery.

The metal rod that holds the cigarette rests on Holly Golightly left hand. It hangs in the balance, rest between hand and dress.
If you live in a shaky building, the metal rod could fall.

The scarf. The scarf ships folded flat inside a plastic bag, which means there are many creases.
They should have rolled the scarf around a tube to avoid creasing. There is more than enough room inside the packaging for this.
The situation is the same a posters. Some ship rolled, others are folded up, which results in creasing. I never understood then Blu-ray movies ship with a folder poster. It fails to make sense.

Given how much likenesses can prove difficult in the hands of some sculptors, whoever sculpted this, did good.

Huntress PF by Sideshow Collectibles

Huntress arrived today. I had always been on the fence with this statue.
Sideshow's Daily Deals 35% off discount tempted me off the fence. Besides, i wanted to add a Huntress to the line-up.

I took the out of the box photo's using a Samsung S22 phone.

In person, Huntress looks good.
As others reported, my Huntess also features a slightly offset mask (offset to the center of her nose). In person it is not too bothersome.

My Huntress shipper box feature green tape. Naturally i feared the worst, thinking possibly i had received someone else's return.
The contents all looked like new. The statue failed to fit into the base, with a whopping 5mm gap below her front foot.
I thought i had received someone else's return.
Using brute force, i the foot peg entered the base 100%

All in all Huntress is a good 1/4 statue.

The cape is going to need work, lots of work to get looking good. I wonder how long the white (pleather?) will last. I wish Sideshow would drop fabric capes in favor of sculpted capes.
