Just found out more information about this lady jedi that comes with 8091. Lego is truly very smart in manipulating the mix of set content, such as  including a rare minifig with a set of few pieces to justify a higher pricing.

After a quick research, I learnt that Barriss Offee is a Padawan to Jedi Master Luminara Unduli, since Season 2 of the Clone Wars are not yet being aired in Hong Kong, I have yet to see the new episodes to see her debut, but the character looks interesting, I am glad to have this minifig as I was not able to collect a minifig of Master Luminara Unduli yet, which is very hard to get. Personally I think Luminara Unduli is very cool, Barriss Offee appears to be so as well.

On the value of this new minifig, a check on history may help. Luminara Unduli's appearance (only in the Light-Up Lightsaber form) in only one single set 7260 Wookiee Catamaran in 2005 may be a good indicator. Besides, with Barriss Offee in the designed costume you may probably feel that she can be the prettiest jedi of them all.

I look forward to watch Season 2 of the Clone Wars soon in local TV, wonder if there would be an episode where Barriss will confront Ventress, I guess that would be a spectacular combat.

For fun purposes, I also tried to change the outfit a little bit, including a new hairdo, the effect seems not to be so good. But that somehow reminds me of a character named "Red Rose" (黑玫瑰) in a local movie series during the 60s.

So I guess I should buy another set of 8091 as collector item when my new batch of ToysRUS coupons arrive, assuming stocks would still be available locally then.
