The opening wave of The Black Series [The Empire Strikes Back 40] line isn’t that exciting. Still, at least Hasbro chose characters that are the most memorable from Episode V for this commemorative collection. Princess Leia Organa (Hoth) enters the line too. Not much more than a slight repaint of 2018’s The Black Series [Phase III] Princess Leia Organa (Hoth) (75) figure, collectors now have another chance to acquire the lovely action figure interpretation in vintage Kenner-inspired packaging. Keeping faithful to the original vintage Kenner artwork, the figure is a welcomed addition to this anniversary collection. Although Hasbro introduced most of the tooling of Princess Leia Organa (Hoth) in the TARGET exclusive Princess Leia (Bespin Escape) figure, this latest version of the figure brings is necessary to celebrate the 40th anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back. Without any intentional paint operation updates, you will find a couple of differences here and there that will set this release apart from the original version. One of the finest action figures in the 6” line, it’s refreshing to see the figure so soon in the line once again. And Princess Leia Organa (Hoth) will round out the line beautifully.

Princess Leia Organa (Hoth) is a retool and repaint of 2018's TBS [P3] Princess Leia (Bespin Escape) TARGET exclusive figure, but also a slight repaint of 2018’s TBS [P3] Princess Leia Organa (Hoth) (75) figure. In case you’ve forgotten, her outfits on Bespin and Hoth are starkly different. Princess Leia’s “Hoth” outfit has boots, and the “Bespin escape” outfit has shoes. And she is wearing two different hairstyles as well. Princess Leia Organa (Hoth)’s head sculpt is beautiful. And the enhanced deco breathes life into the figure. Even the way her blush has been applied is like nothing we’ve seen up until now. Hasbro also repainted the rest of the figure’s outfit too. And they also tooled a removable quilted vest just like we see in Episode V. It doesn’t encumber her movement at all and is cast from a pliable material that is easily removable. Princess Leia Organa (Hoth) comes with 27 points of articulation across 16 areas of joints. The figure has excellent mobility and versatility and can be posed in a variety of ways. Sometimes the joints on these figures are a tad loose, but our sample doesn’t have this issue. So posing the figure is relatively issue free.

In addition to her removable vest, Princess Leia Organa (Hoth) comes with welding goggles and a welder. Hasbro added these accessories because they are based on the scene when Leia is welding a section of the Millennium Falcon while parked inside the exogorth’s body, which they erroneously believe is a cave. These accessories are wonderfully sculpted and painstakingly detailed. The goggles fit over the head like a glove, and the figure’s hands tightly hold onto the handle of the welder. We think these accessories are nice additions, but perhaps an interchangeable set of hands, like the ones that came with Princess Leia (Bespin Escape) would have been wiser to include here. Carrie Fisher is seen wearing the Hoth outfit with and without her white gloves. Either way, Princess Leia Organa (Hoth) is a perfect figure in The Black Series [The Empire Strikes Back 40] 6” line, and Hasbro should pat themselves on the back for including this figure in the lineup. We’d like to see them focus on direct Kenner figures for the line and not add their ideas, but that’s not what’s happening, and the line will get confusing and cluttered with unnecessary figures Let’s see what happens.
