"Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi. You're my only hope.” – Princess Leia

The brave and strong-willed Princess Leia is one of the most beloved characters in the original Star Wars trilogy. Her important role in leading the rebellion against the Galactic Empire is unforgettable to any Star Wars fan!

Sideshow Collectibles and Hot Toys are excited to officially present Luke Skywalker's twin sister from Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope as the Princess Leia sixth scale Collectible Figure!

The movie-accurate collectible figure is specially crafted based on the image of Carrier Fisher as Princess Leia in the film, and features a newly developed head sculpt, detailed hair sculpture in Princess Leia’s iconic bun hair style, specially tailored costume, two types of blasters, and a figure stand.

This special edition includes a specially designed backdrop as a bonus accessory.

Star Wars fans, don’t miss the chance to add this wonderful collectible figure to your Star Wars collection!

When a review is written every day for a long period of time, admittedly fresh inspiration can be hard to find. Thankfully, when a stunningly beautiful collectible like Hot Toys’ Princess Leia Movie Masterpiece Series one-sixth scale figure gets released inspiration comes back overflowing. Princess Leia is in many ways a simple and elegant one-sixth scale figure. But don’t take its simplicity and second rate. With only three additional hand attachments, and E-11 blaster and her signature long barreled blaster as the really only separate accessories here, the artistic integrity that went into her design is really quite breathtaking. This portrait is a dead ringer for actress Carrie Fisher. If you can’t see it, then we honestly feel badly for you. With the head sculpt alone, the Princess Leia Movie Masterpiece Series one-sixth scale figure is the greatest interpretation of this character in 12” scale. There is no other way to assess this collectible. On top of a picture head sculpt, Princess Leia comes with absolutely gorgeous clothing, an exacting belt, and boots made from some imitation leather material that actually bends and wrinkles as you pose her. The aesthetics brought to this figure are outstanding. If we had one criticism, and this is almost a non-issue for us, we’d have to comment that her skin tone is a tad too dark. But this negative pales in comparison to what positives are brought forth with this phenomenal collectible.

Princess Leia comes with an all-new body type that incorporates 28 points of articulation. Yet, the articulation joints are all hidden perfectly underneath of her costume. She is perfectly proportioned and her body type is feminine, short and athletic. She has some weightiness to her frame, but she is also able to maintain an nearly infinite amount of poses thanks to her articulation system. Her white dress is fitted to her body, yet you can still pose her with her legs outstretched thanks to the give of the material. The material itself is beautiful. It’s lacy, it’s woolly, and it has the finest silky drape of any material we have seen to date on a one-sixth scale figure. It hangs beautifully and the belt has been affixed brilliantly to attain the proper puckering and pleating that it does in the film. It’s a nearly flawless attempt to recreate the unique look of her outfit from Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. Collectors from all ages and all background are undoubtedly going to fall for this piece. Let us recount the boots. If there is one part of this figure that leaves us speechless, it would have to be the boots. You’ll have to see them in person to understand just how impressively they’ve been approached for her. They’re solid, yet, the move like a thick fabric. And when you move her feet inside of them, the effect of the boot wrinkling like in real life happens here. We’re so wowed by this that it has become our most favorite feature of this figure.

Princess Leia also comes with an articulated E-11 blaster as well as her signature blaster she used to take out stormtroopers on the Tantive IV. She has been give proper hand attachments to accompany the included blasters. She looks amazing holding them. Like all Movie Masterpiece Series one-sixth scale figures, Princess Leia comes with a rectangular grated based which allows you to attach a backing post for display. We’re quite fond of these Star Wars environment inspired stand. And it appears that every figure in this series is going to be give a uniquely colored base. For Sideshow Exclusive collectors, Hot Toys has graciously included an beautiful cardboard diorama backdrop which is based on the scene where she places the Death Star plans inside of R2-D2. When posed against the backdrop, Princess Leia looks even better. We could be happier with this exclusive addition. For $209.99, you do get a quality piece and exclusive that will be available nowhere else. It still is a high price for a collectible in one-sixth scale. But when you compare this figure to Sideshow Collectible’s 2007 Leia Organa (Imperial Senator: Alderaan) 1:6 Scale Figure you’ll see the incredible differences that exist between them. The Hot Toys figure instantly ages the Sideshow figure. It’s almost sad. We have always been impressed with Hot Toys’ work on pop culture’s classic characters. But now we’re especially fond of them since they are taking on the Star Wars license. Keep them coming Hot Toys.
