See subject.

I own almost all 1:6 SW female figures produced by Sideshow (with the exception of Leia as Boushh).

IIRC . . . the last 1:6 SW female I acquired was the Padme Amidala Ilum Mission figure. Yes. This figure had it's share of valid criticisms.

Will Sideshow produce another 1:6 SW female anytime soon?

I hope they make a Shock Ti and Oola. Oh and by the way please don't use any more pics of my wife for your avitar. Thanks. What part of Fl. you from? And dont say NE, I can read.

I sure hope so. I'd at least like to get a Shaak Ti and Barriss Offee before they pull the plug. The Hasbro offerings aren't bad, but they aren't Sideshow. Even though I know a lot of freaks don't care for her, IMO, an Ahsoka Tano wouldn't be bad either.

I don't think anyone would mind a Darth Talon. :lol

Boushh is one of Sideshow's finest.

Really, it's a great figure. You should get one. You're welcome. :p

Not going to happen. They already deemed her and Sallah "longshots" in a Q&A a while back. They've received the curse of the Medieval Kurgan. :(

I would hope for a new female body from SS first before even considering any other female characters, except Hoth Leia.

All these awesome characters to choose from and they will probably release Mon Mothma!

Would like to see a AOTC padme in the arena outfit. Also the Jedi ladies. Barriss, Lumi, or Shaak Ti.

Of course I wouldn't turn down A HOTH LEIA either.....

You bought Ilum Padme and haven't bought Boussh? I'd say Boussh is the best female figure in the line, and dirt cheap, too.

Damn straight. I'd like an AOTC Padme even if they don't though...I've got one of Callous' awesome Padme heads that I've been saving for one. Hoth Leia should be workable too. But beyond those two, I really think Sideshow needs to do something about the female Buck.

Yup, I would buy that figure anyday! I know Illum Padme was supposedly voted for by fans... but I also remember reading that once they had cast the head for Assajj Ventress, someone realised that it had a strong Natalie Portman resemblence and it was time to churn out a Padme figure (with no hair)... or maybe it was vice/versa? :confused:

Also another female figure Sideshow should be working on for release v.soon... Yarna d'al' Gargan!

Search your feelings... you know it to be true...

I too am hoping for SSC to reuse the Illum Padme head sculpt much like the way they did for AOTC Kenobi with the Clone War Kenobi's head.

Unless they ditch the female Buck I don't care if they never make another female figure again.

Most of the Episode I Padmes would work fine on the Buck as long as they used the shorter version.

Figures in tight clothing such as Ep II Padme would look really bad on the Buck though.

Ep II Padme and Hoth Leia are at the top of my list. They need to sort out that awful female buck first though.

Ventress looked good on that body, so I have no concerns about a Geonosis Padme. I prefer the version with the cape and unexposed midriff, so there is no issue. Same with Hoth Leia, Bespin Leia, Shaak Ti, Luminara, etc. So long as the heads are in scale and the body is not exposed, the female Buck is fine.

D'oh!

I don't know what happened but the first female body that Sideshow released was really quite good it wasn't blocky like the most recent one and I have no idea why they changed the body. The original can now only be found with as grey Art S buck figures and I think is quite rare. They may have used it for the first Buffy figure. I will try to get photos if I remember.

I'm in the same boat. Just not a fan of the female Buck body.

I'm in the middle of working on a custom Aurra Sing.

Asajj looked good but that was because of the extra layers of clothing. I was actually surprised, too.

The buck seems okay when it's covered up. I think my Lara Croft figure is great (I know it doesn't get a lot of love around here), but I keep her in her long pants and sweater. The figures I'm looking forward to--Hoth Leia, AOTC Padme and Zam Wesell--are pretty much covered from head to toe, so I think these would all work on the buck. Like FlyAndFlight mentioned, the extra layer of clothing helps disguise the frame.

I really want a battle outfit Padme, probably the only female I'd buy from star wars besides the ANH Leia I already have.

As I mainly focus on Jedi's I would like to see Shaak Ti and Mara Jade. I don't care for the body used now. If they could make a newer body so you don't have to display it with the robe on to cover the silly looking joints.

The Craw
06-29-2009, 11:48 AM
the female body sucks. i wish they would seriously consider making a better one but i doubt it would happen. i don't know why when there are a lot of female figures from SW and GI Joe that could benefit from a new body. in star wars i really want a hoth leia, an on screen version of padme, and every female jedi there is especially luminara unduli.

Aren't too sure about this but didn't Sideshow say that they are developing a new female body? I am still hoping for a Shaak Ti.:)

EVILFACE

They have mentioned working on a new body in reguards to GIJoe females, so I'm sure that would carry over into other lines.

thats basically what they've said is the holdup on female Indy characters so I'd assume it's why we're waiting on the SW characters too.

Let's just hope they use the first release of the new female body on the Dead line.. that way tight (or loose rather) joints won't be an issue :lol

Mad Old Lu
03-01-2010, 07:33 AM
Geonosis Padme, Hoth Leia and Zam Wessell. That's all I'd get. Hopefully they'll resolve the new body situation soon.

Anyone know how long Sideshow talked about replacing the Buck until they actually did?

If they could make a good Padme Arena battle with a proportionate sized head and good likeness & face paint (eyes) i'd probably bite.

Not long. But, they never said they were working on it. They just announced at SDCC that they had a new one and that they'd start using it eventually. Indiana Jones was the first figure on the Prometheus, and that was a little less than a year later.

Thanks, devilof76. Just a-wonderin' how long we should expect them to debut the new female since they've been talking about it so much lately. Maybe at SDCC?

Would be impressive if Sideshow did Padme in one of her TPM gowns. Be a chance for SS to show off their outfit detailing. Geonosis Padme would be awesome!

Glad they have held off on making her. SS is on a roll now with their 1/6 figures, they are top notch. Most of the early SW figures look so inferior now.
