Jedi Master Luminara Unduli was a minor, peripheral Star Wars character from Episode II and III. During the films she wasn't too exploited, so when the opportunity occurred (and that opportunity called The Clone Wars TV series), developers decided to give her a chance to become a bigger part of SW universe. The toy comes from 2009 and is based on Unduli's animated appearance.
The figure is very articulated, it has 14 joints: neck, elbows, shoulders, arms, waist, legs, knees, ankles. A a lot of freedom! For sure this versatility will be enough to realise any incredible acrobatics during the fights. However, Luminara figure has (like an animated counterpart) very thin limbs, so even with the joints in the legs it can be difficult to find a stable pose. During a dynamic play it won't be a major fault, anyway an additional stand would be a good idea.
The paint application is really careful and detailed, but usually only the upper part is visible. The legs are entirely covered by a nice, soft skirt which also provide some balancing support. Unlike modest regular Jedi robes, it has a decorative strip. Luminara's face is well painted, for me it should be only little bit more expressive. Now it looks like a mask. Unduli has got just one weapon: a green lightsaber, which fits good into left hand - the right grasp is simply too wide (check the photos!). Hmmm, wasn't Unduli right-handed? The skirt, nor other basic elements are removable.
This Luminara Unduli action figure is really decent. Compared to its general performance, noticed small disadvantage seems to be nearly unimportant.
Luminara Unduli is not a name which easily rolls off the tongue. She is Luminara Unduli a Mirialan female, a Jedi Master and Senior Jedi General, often called upon in times of danger. The character is integral in the Clone Wars and she is a much needed ally of the Rebels.
Hasbro have produced a toy which is an excellent reproduction of the Luminara Unduli from the movies. The figure stands about four inches or so in height and on initial glance is frail and petite. Her skinny frame is perfect as she exudes elegance and beauty. The carefully sculptured head is made up of tremendous colours. I love the gentle green and the powerful purple which are visually striking. Her facial expression is one of a tranquil divinity.
Her upper body is very feminine and petite with nimble shoulders and graceful arms which have an enchanting look about them. The best feature is the flowing dress which comes right down to ground level. Made from material, it is slightly see through and there is a wonderful design on the front which suggests a lady of royalty or nobilty. This piece of material really enhances the figure and makes her truly unique.
The figure is very slender which means it does not have that amazing balance. It is perhaps best to rest her against a wall when displaying her to give her support. She comes with a lightsabre and another small tool which she grips well. This is definitely one of the best figures in the Cline Wars collection and is one I would place high up on the desirability list. Expect to pay up to five pounds for a boxed figure.
