Once Sideshow Collectibles released the very first 12” figure, Luke Skywalker (Jedi Knight), they went buck wild with releasing figures from the Order Of The Jedi collection. We got more Jedi in a few short years than we may have estimated and for the most part, they were unbelievable works of art. Some suffered from clumsy limbs and stubborn joints that “snapped” into place instead of “moving” into place. Criticism aside, they are still some of the greatest figures we have ever seen. What is so cool about how Sideshow categorizes their 12” line is that they are arranged by theme and not by movie. This allows for greater selection and versatility per category while still being able to focus on all the wonderful Star Wars films. Perhaps the only complaint collectors started voicing was that all the Jedi were becoming a bit too much like the clones because of the quickly aging Art S. Buck body type. And while there is really no room to criticize Sideshow’s prolific and stunning work on their Star Wars figures, the Art S. Buck body form created limitations that were starting to become a problem. The nature of that body frame severely limits optimal posing because the joints don’t necessarily stay in place (it varies from one figure to the next) and fall once you get a pose you like. But Sideshow Collectibles really does a great job making up for the figure’s limitations by creating a beautiful portrait and a costume that exceeds expectations.

Ki-Adi-Mundi was announced July 3, 2008 just in time for Independence Day. It made it in time for Christmas and many collectors thought that they missed out on altogether because it was a Domestic Exclusive on their website and only released within the United States. It didn’t make its way to specialty and comic books shops and with a limited run of only 3000 pieces, it didn’t have the reaching power of some of the earlier Jedi 12 inch figures. And this is a shame because Ki-Adi-Mundi is one spectacular figure. From his portrait to his brilliantly woven Jedi costume, Sideshow Collectibles proves time and again that they are leaders in accuracy, authenticity, brilliant craftsmanship and stunning decorating. Ki-Adi-Mundi may not be as accessorized as some of the earlier 12 inch figures that they made, he comes with just enough and helps to round out the Jedi Order is very positive ways. It is apparent that Sideshow took extra special care and replicated the pattern of Ki-Adi-Mundi's head perfectly. This attention to detail also makes its way to his hands. The evenness of the matching patterns and textures are stunning and we are quite impressed with the final execution of the figure. We think it even looks better than the prototype Sideshow presented when this figure went up for pre-order.

Complete with believable dark circles around, yellowed white hair and natural wrinkles that bring his face to life, Sideshow has faithfully replicated this brave Jedi Master beyond words and we think it was one of the best Jedi to attack in their growing line. It of course puts the Hasbro 12” version to shame. While very few Hasbro figures can match the level of intensity of the Sideshow figures, Ki-Adi-Mundi is light years from the Hasbro version in more way than one. Ki-Adi-Mundi has one of the most unique Jedi outfits of all of his peers. The outer shirt almost functions like a vest yet wraps around his back below his butt. And his shirt is very baggy and has a very distinct texture to it. Sideshow also nailed this perfectly as well. He comes with a very tiny satchel that hangs from a real leather strap and it looks completely amazing. We love tiny accessories like this on our 12 inch figures. His lightsaber comes in a shade of blue we haven’t seen before in Sideshow’s line and he also comes with an unlit hilt that fits in his hand perfectly. Ki-Adi-Mundi has very unique yellow eyes that catch your glance almost instantaneously. This figure shines from head to toe and we can honestly overlook the Art S. Buck body form underneath all that “artwork”. Completely sold out, the aftermarket is the only place you are going to be able to locate this gem. We recommend not waiting too much longer if you still need him.
