Jedi Knight Aayla Secura was very briefly seen in Attack Of The Clones and Revenge Of The Sith. The figure was released in 2003 during the SAGA collection when Episode 2 was still fresh in people's minds. Aayla has an action oriented pose and is unable to stand on her own. Luckily Hasbro included a nice Geonosian surface looking base where you can place the figure on. Aayla's articulation is all over the place. Why Hasbro decided to articulate her left upper thigh, or the left elbow and not the right is a mystery. Missing knee and ankle joints make it impossible to have the figure stand on its own. The lightsaber (with removable blade) does not fit into any of her hands. The right hand is too wide to hold the lightsaber, so make sure you keep the little rubber band that keeps the lightsaber attached around her wrist. Aayla's action feature is the magnet in her right hand, the idea being that she can "force-grab" the lightsaber hilt. The feature works quite well overall. The paint application is done nicely, especially on the back of her head. All things considered, it's a nice looking Aayla Secura action figure, but it falls short in that it can't stand on its own, can't hold the weapon, and you have zero options to pose her differently due to lack of movable parts.
An agile and adept Jedi Knight, Aayla Secura wields her blue lightsaber with graceful precision and sensuous form. Many adversaries are lured by the sultry Twi'lek's notable style, but few are a match for her empathic responses and shrewd parry. Although often more impetuous than her fellow Jedi, Aayla never relinquishes to anger or aggression -- an indispensable Jedi trait during the galaxy's current state of turmoil.
