The Rebel hero Princess Leia pretends to be a bounty hunter to get inside Jabba the Hutt's criminal palace. Once inside, she frees Han Solo but is captured and made one of the Hutt's slaves. She endures this humiliation until Luke Skywalker rescues them at the Great Pit of Carkoon, where Leia strangles the crime lord with the chains keeping her prisoner.
Is any basic figure collection complete without Princess Leia in her slave outfit? She may just be the quintessential character from the Original Trilogy. So what better Princess Leia Organa choice is there to release in The Original Trilogy Collection, a greatest hits collection, so to speak, of the most popular characters from the first three Star Wars films. The Original Trilogy Collection has an affectionately inordinate number of personalities thanks to the rich history of figures Hasbro has made for us throughout the years. They truly culled the best choices possible and put together a conglomeration of older figures (with some new ones) and made them better by adding them into packaging that tugged on our vintage Kenner heart-of-hearts. Princess Leia is just one of many figures that makes you recall why you’re in this hobby.
Hasbro pulled this Princess Leia figure from 2001’s POTJ Princess Leia With Sail Barge Cannon Deluxe set. She is limited in articulation, but you probably won’t care at all because her pose, proportions, sculpt and aesthetics are relatively flawless. While it goes without saying that any Princess Leia action figure in a slave outfit should have the option of a sitting pose, we will guarantee that you really won’t care about this important detail because of how well this version of her is made. Princess Leia obviously isn’t perfect, but between the seamless addition of soft-goods, a real metal chain and a “real” ponytail, you have an amazingly well developed action figure that will prove difficult to age. With daintily think extremities, Princess Leia has been built to scale with the rest of the figures in the lineup. She won’t look out of place next to Chewbacca, Darth Vader or even Jabba The Hutt himself.
