Sideshow Collectibles proudly presents the Shaak Ti Premium Format Figure from LucasArts’ breakthrough Star Wars video game,The Force Unleashed.

Standing proudly at 19 inches in overall height, the Shaak Ti Premium Format Figure serves as a fitting memorial to this heroic Jedi, one of the last survivors of Order 66 and the great Jedi purge.
