An image of the new The Black Series 6" Princess Leia Organa has been revealed from Celebration Europe (courtesy of Jedi Insider). The figure is a disaster. JTA reader Josh M. composited this new image with 2004's VOTC Princess Leia Organa (courtesy of Rebelscum.com's Photo Archives) so you can see how much better a more-than-decade old sculpt looks. Leia probably has/may have a great sculpt, but unfortunately that has been destroyed with pretty rough paint operations! Stay tuned as we provide better and clearer images soon!
UPDATE 1: Toy Ark has posted some close-up images of the newly revealed TBS6 figures. Leia doesn't look any better, sadly.
UPDATE 2: Apparently the outcries from the web have prompted Hasbro to respond to this Princess Leia Organa figure. Hasbro claims that they're aware of the problems and are currently working on tweaking the paint operations for a better likeness. To quote Hasbro's Steve Evans “the Leia figure shown at SWCE is a pre-production ‘first shot’ and is not final deco. We are addressing the delicacies of lips, eyes and eyebrows. The hood is also not stitched as it will be in final product.”
