Bio: Jedi Master Luminara Unduli encounters dangerous enemies while bringing a notorious Separatist leader to stannd trial.

Commentary: While the Revenge of the Sith version of this Jedi was great, this Luminara Unduli is even more likable. The sculpt is fantastic, her cloth robes remain, and the articulation is really excellent. Like most second-year animated figures she's pretty gorgeous, it's almost like they took the animated model and souped it up to be a nice toy. She's not perfect, but I can't imagine her being much better other than redesigning this one to have her lightsaber plug into her belt-- which it doesn't. She can fight, stand, and generally look good-- that's about all you can ask for. Jedi fans, get this one. Hasbro made some tweaks to the design but as the toy is concerned, they're all for the better.

Collector's Notes: Reasonably new, she's still a bit tough to get-- the new figures have been quite popular since the mass-dumping of several new waves in August of 2009.

If you're having trouble finding her, then don't forget to check Kohl's. I frequently see her there.
