Aurra Sing: Dawn of the Bounty Hunters is a reference book which was co-written by Ryder Windham and Josh Ling and published by Chronicle Books in September 2000. It is the third book of the Star Wars Masterpiece Edition series.
This third exclusive Star Wars Masterpiece Edition is an awesome tribute to Star Wars' bounty hunters and to the most beautiful and cunning of them all, Aurra Sing—the first to scorch the screen in the cinematic chronology. By far the most popular subculture among core fans, the bounty hunters have proven themselves a necessity in the Star Wars universe. They are highly skilled professionals—hired by everyone from Darth Vader to Jabba the Hutt—and valued for their ability to carry out the most dangerous assignments. The Aurra Sing collector figure captures the fierce independence of the female bounty hunter with a sleek head antenna, extra-long fingers, two holstered pistols, and a modified blaster rifle. This exclusive 12-inch collector figure, the first Aurra Sing figure ever, is available only as part of this Masterpiece Edition. The richly illustrated full-color book details the many shrewd exploits and misdeeds of such other bounty hunters as Dengar, Bossk, Zuckuss, 4-LOM, IG-88, and, of course, the relentless Boba Fett, with a special focus on their hunt for the smuggler-cum-Rebel officer Han Solo. With more than one hundred color photographs, previously unpublished conceptual sketches, exclusive interviews, and a comprehensive list of Bounty Hunter collectible merchandise, this is the ultimate tribute to Star Wars' notorious anti-heroes.
