This finely crafted Portrait Edition doll lets you savor the magic of a special Star Wars: A New Hope movie moment. It is faithfully replicated and vividly brought to life through highly detailed sculpting, rich fabric attire and choice accessories.

Princess Leia wears a white, crepe-back satin gown with a sparkle finish. Her cape is sheer sparkle spandex and her trademark braided hair is embellished with silver cording. A stamped metal necklace, bracelet and belt complete the exciting ensemble.

In her Ceremonial Gown, Princess Leia is the essence of youthful exuberance and blossoming beauty.

Hasbro decided to get a little inventive with their 12” figures as they planned the Episode I line. They believed that they could interest a wider collecting base by making Barbie-like “dolls” of Star Wars characters. Both Queen Amidala and Princess Leia Organa wear beautiful and ornate costumes. As a result, they make perfect candidates for an adult-oriented collectibles line. With this in mind, Hasbro created the 1999 Portrait Edition with three entries, two based on Queen Amidala from The Phantom Menace, and a third, Princess Leia (Ceremonial Gown) from Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. Hasbro spent a significant amount of time recreating a screen-accurate likeness of Carrie Fisher for this figure. The likeness is excellent, although the shape of the head is a tad too round. We wish they went for a thinner structure here. But between the cheeks and the eyes, no one can claims this doesn’t look like Princess Leia from Episode IV. The doll’s hair is beautiful, intertwined with a silver cord for a glistening effect.

Princess Leia (Ceremonial Gown) comes with a satin gown joined with a crepe satin cape. It’s sheer, and you can see her body and frame underneath it. The material hangs on the figure’s arms when outstretched, or hangs with a stunning drape at the figure’s side naturally. The swoop neck of the gown isn’t large, but it shows enough of the figure’s upper chest. The cape is luxurious, and it gives off the impressions of multiple layers, even though there is only a single layer present. The white gown and white cape interact wonderfully with each other, and the finished product is gorgeous. The gown is as lifelike as it is beautiful. Hasbro finished off Princess Leia (Ceremonial Gown) with real-metal ornamentations, including a bracelet, necklace, and belt. Hasbro finished off these accessories with a glimmering silver. And they’re perfectly constructed to fit the figure’s body. Lastly, Hasbro gave Princess Leia (Ceremonial Gown) two silver shoes. As a whole, this release is one of the most authentic interpretations of Princess Leia produced to date.

It appears as if Hasbro produced Princess Leia (Ceremonial Gown) utilizing a female buck that they use for many other female characters. It’s the costuming, accessories, and a new portrait that makes it fresh for the Star Wars line. Because of the body type used, you'll need to use the included doll stand. It's required. Hasbro added a two-piece clear stand inside of the package so that Princess Leia (Ceremonial Gown) can stand because this is a figure that will not stand unassisted, sadly. Princess Leia (Ceremonial Gown) comes in a beautiful gatefold window box. The front cover is held in place via Velcro, and the inside cover is a collage of various images of Princess Leia from the Original Trilogy. The “doll” side appears to recreate the scenery of the Yavin ceremony, but that’s only a guess. The biggest surprise of the Princess Leia (Ceremonial Gown) 1999 Portrait Edition is the MSRP. The doll retails for $49.99 which is $30 more than the standard Action Collection figure. But with the quality implemented here, it almost seems worth it. Princess Leia (Ceremonial Gown) is a must-have for the collection.
