Title: 2013 Legacy Collection Wave 1
Post by: David D. on July 12, 2012, 02:03:53 AM
I found this interesting at Comic-Con today. Among last year's Vintage Wave 7 figures was this misplaced Luminara Unduli figure behind Barriss' nameplate thingy. She appears to be an entirely new sculpt. The paint aps on the face are hugely improved over past versions (although it's probably just a really nice prototype), there's new wrist and ball-socket elbow articulation, the torso looks new, there are added soft goods, maybe some ankle articulation (couldn't verify), and it looks like her headdress is separately sculpted (so possibly removable--I'll post more close-up shots tomorrow and hear what everyone here thinks). It was removed from the display right after I asked about it, but I'm told the details will be revealed on Friday.

I think she's from the Attack of the Clones 3D wave in next year's Build-a-Droid basic figure line. What do you think?

They were apparently removed from the booth by the time I got there last night.  :-\ I'm sure they'll be back out on Friday  and when they are we'll get a bunch of pics.

A couple close-up shots....what do you think of the head dress? I'm curious to see if it's removable, and if so what they've put underneath. I remembered reading something interesting about what was under there somewhere a long long time ago and sure enough her Wookieepedia page mentions: "Attack of the Clones: The Visual Dictionary states that her headdress conceals extra-sensory organs sensitive to dryness." However, it then goes on to claim that that's incorrect because she belongs to a near-human species and therefore the biology wouldn't be that different. Still, it'd be interesting to see if Hasbro tries to include that detail!

I agree with you David. It's obvious she's a new figure but we'll just have to wait and see what they say about her.

Got a closer look today and got some exclusive pics of her with the head dress off which I'll post shortly! I'm going to go ahead and turn this into the thread for the entire first wave of 2013 Droid Factory figures which was revealed this morning. The wave also includes:

-Anakin Skywalker
-Pablo-Jill
-Biker Scout
-Battle Droid
-TIE Pilot "Backstabber"
-Padme Amidala
-Sandtrooper
-R2-D2
-212th Battalion Clone Trooper
-Clone Trooper Sergeant
-Geonosian Warrior (I think in the panel he was referred to as Sun Fac.)

And the buildable droids are FA-4 and TC-70. Pictures of everything coming soon! 8)
