The brave and beautiful Princess Leia Organa disguises herself as the bounty hunter, Boushh, to sneak into Jabba The Hutt's Palace. Once inside, Leia frees Han Solo from the confines of his carbonite casing. Her actions, however, are anticipated and Jabba turns the tables, capturing Leia and forcing her to become a slave. Little does Jabba know that Leia and her powerful friends will have the last laugh...
The Saga Collection is certainly good for updating some very "old" modern action figures. Hasbro has stepped up to the plate to revisit some of their earliest figures in the POTF2 line with awesome sculpts thanks to the widening parameters that technology allows toy makers to apply to their action figures line. One of the finest recent examples is Princess Leia (Boushh Disguise) which is easily the best figure of the Carkoon wave, and a must-have for your collection! There’s just no comparison between this release and its outdated POTF2/SOTE counterpart, and you'll likely see for yourself the huge leap forward in quality when you have this figure in your hands. (At worst, you'll see an incredible step forward if you can't appreciate how far this Star Wars character has come in the action figure line.)
One area in which this figure excels is accessories. As opposed to its predecessor which had that handy (no pun intended) thermal detonator fused to its hand, this new Boushh Leia figure gives us the option of either attaching the separate detonator accessory to a tiny hole in the palm of her hand or clipping it to her belt. This little display feature makes a huge difference and it’s greatly appreciated. Princess Leia (Boushh Disguise) also has a nice pike accessory that includes a lot more detail than the previous version of this weapon had. However, one tiny flaw observed is that the weapon falls victim to Hasbro’s use of a cheaper plastic that causes it to be slightly flimsy. She’s got a removable helmet that fits perfectly and has a very nice paint job with some subtly metallic grays enhanced with a wash that looks exactly like oxidized copper. And of course the standard personalized display stand and bonus 2-inch hologram figure are also included, which makes quite an impressive accessory count for one figure and a good overall value.
