I recently bought some Arealight Twi’leks and I thought I’d share some quick photos of them!
They are very well moulded, have great colour matching, and the printing is excellent. The waisted torso is an especially cool concept that I wish TLG would do; if you’re going to print breasts and hips you might as well use a different piece! You can find more photos of these lovely ladies on the Arealight Flickr page.
Here you can see inside the torso. It’s much the same as the TLG parts, but with a hip. I’ve given it a few test squeezes and it seems strong.
What appears to be a moulding mark is visible at certain angles. It isn’t overly noticeable normally.
“Two against one? No fair!”
As a bit of trivia, all of the Twi’leks are based off “real” characters.
White: Lyn Me, Max Rebo Band dancer in Return of the Jedi Special Edition.
Blue: Aayla Secura, Jedi Master.
Red: Darth Talon, Sith Apprentice in Star Wars: Legacy comics. (Never read so I don’t know any more.)
Orange: Ayy Vida, General background nobody in Attack of the Clones that someone seems to like a lot. (She’s supposed to be yellow and red.)
Green: Oola, The rancors lunch.
Also I bought some hair and a blank torso .
Looks very standard on the inside. It’s hard to see but there seems to be a “makers mark” on the inside of the inverted stud. A stylised “A” and “L”?
Some of the hair pieces have a relatively obvious mould mark on the top. (You can see it in this photo.) It isn’t a major concern though, and I suspect it’ll improve with handling/fondling.
Even so, I highly recommend Arealight’s work.
