This third exclusive Star Wars Masterpiece Edition is an awesome tribute to Star Wars' bounty hunters and to the most beautiful and cunning of them all, Aurra Sing—the first to scorch the screen in the cinematic chronology. By far the most popular subculture among core fans, the bounty hunters have proven themselves a necessity in the Star Wars universe. They are highly skilled professionals—hired by everyone from Darth Vader to Jabba the Hutt—and valued for their ability to carry out the most dangerous assignments. The Aurra Sing collector figure captures the fierce independence of the female bounty hunter with a sleek head antenna, extra-long fingers, two holstered pistols, and a modified blaster rifle. This exclusive 12-inch collector figure, the first Aurra Sing figure ever, is available only as part of this Masterpiece Edition. The richly illustrated full-color book details the many shrewd exploits and misdeeds of such other bounty hunters as Dengar, Bossk, Zuckuss, 4-LOM, IG-88, and, of course, the relentless Boba Fett, with a special focus on their hunt for the smuggler-cum-Rebel officer Han Solo. With more than one hundred color photographs, previously unpublished conceptual sketches, exclusive interviews, and a comprehensive list of Bounty Hunter collectible merchandise, this is the ultimate tribute to Star Wars' notorious anti-heroes.
The item is realistic. 12-inches tall, The book that comes with it is particularly intresting to sci-fi, Star Wars, and movie buffs, It has background pictures and scenes. (WARNING: WHEN YOU TRY AND BUY THIS, MAKE SURE THE 12' FIGURE IS INCLUDED. LOOK FOR SOMETHING THAT PLAINLY STATES THIS IN THE AD). The figure does not bend well at the arms and legs, but with a little finesse thaey do bend a little. The head swivels, and the pistols are removable, The rifle looks delicate so be careful with it.

The character was in the Phantom Menace for 20 -30 seconds, with no lines, during the pod-race looking down at the race. If you go to you tube , you'll find the character "filled-out" more, from the animated series The Clone Wars.
When the Aurra Sing: Dawn of the Bounty Hunters set was first released at an eye-popping seventy-five dollars, I, like many others, were a bit put off by it. With the number of unbought items because of this price, however, it became easier and easier to find this piece at an agreeable price. That is good, too, because it has a multitude of redeemable qualities.
1) The 12" figure itself isn't bad crafted at all. The facial features look accurate, the hands and lengthened fingers are well sculpted, and the hair, with a mixture of beaded strands finishing off the effect, make the body design look quite good. It is flawed in a few ways, with a bit of an oversized head (not too badly, but still, at the wrong angle, large), few points of articulation, and the antenna in her head bending a bit too easily and staying that way. Still, the articulation in 12' figures has never been the best, so this is overlookable. Personally, I don't want McFarlane overunfluencing yet another market.
2) The outfitting actually looks good, too, with removable pieces ranging from shells, guns, a weapons belt, boots, and a vest with varied attachments. This is an improvement over many recent releases because it gives more depth to the figure.
3) Her weapon looks quite good and slings over her back well. The look mimics the movie/photos nicely.
4) The book itself, despite some flaws in the bounty hunter storylines, does have a bit of detail to it. An experienced person might even learn a couple of facts, plus there's a listing of many and many a bounty hunter item that's been released over the years.
5) The box itself is actually interesting, depicting the past and the present hunters in all their glory. I liked it because it holds the book and the figure easily, allowing you access without destroying the packaging.
Its a piece that will surprise you, actually, once you have it and get to sit around in admiration. I would highly recommend it.
i'm a 12 year old girl-and i just got into aurra sing and those 3 seconds on the screen type characters.anyway,the book is pretty good-i liked learning about aurra sing.the doll is pretty cool-i like the guns and the outfit and the hair and stuff.i don't like the antennia though.it sticks out to much.in the aurra sing comics it's not as bad!the 2 black guns don't fit in her hands good.the strap for the long gun goes over her well though.i wish she came with her lightsaber!ohh well.i still like the doll and book.buy this book and doll anyway!
For the most part, the book is authoritative about the bounty hunters with the exception of the main character of this book, Aurra Sing. Reason being, after reading the book and the Star Wars website character link on her, there are a couple of essential differences. One, Aurra Sing the figure and character in this book does not carry a scarlet bladed Light Saber. Two, the weapons that she carries are not able to be adequately held by the figure, where in the Star Wars website she carries a Light Saber and six other light sabers that she has gotten from other Jedis that she has killed. I also think that if she is going to be a character in Episode II, they will have to remodel her hands and maybe modify the weapons that she holds to reflect the characterisation of the original creator of this character as found in the Starwars.com link.

First off....wait on buying this. The other two in the series both went on clearance. Second, the doll looks bad...not bad as in good, but BAD. Why isn't McFarlane Toys doing Star Wars figures? Or why is Kenner not matching them in detail and quality? I am tired of non-articulated figures or ones that don't even really look like the actor/actress. This isn't the late 70's or early 80's anymore. I can't really comment on the book, but for being a book on characters that barely are in the film....it's probably mostly speculative. The movies have always been the law. Lucas has stated this many times, and it's still ever changing as he continues to flesh out the series.
This a truly great addition to any Star Wars fan's collection.

Not only do you get a fascinating book that gives an in depth look at the Bounty Hunters of the Star Wars universe but you also get the only large size figure of Aurra Sing that there is

on the market.

Highly recommended for any one interested in Star Wars Bounty Hunters.
