General Leia Organa is getting her own Hot Toys release. As portrayed by the late Carrie Fisher, this release will ship in 2018. As with all Hot Toys releases, General Leia will come with many accessories and screen-accurate clothing.
Once again on the run from dark forces determined to crush freedom in the galaxy, the strong and committed Leia Organa who fans have grown to love is now leading the Resistance fleet on its quest to find a haven in the widely acclaimed Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
Today, in tribute of Carrie Fisher's last appearance as Leia in the epic Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Hot Toys is pleased to officially introduce the 1/6th scale of Leia Organa from the film!
The highly-accurate collectible figure is sophisticatedly crafted based on Leia Organa's appearance in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. It features a newly developed head sculpt with wonderful likeness, meticulously tailored elegant outfit, a blaster, and a specially designed character theme figure stand!
In memory of our beloved Princess, this collectible figure will undoubtedly be a revered addition to all Star Wars fans' collection!
Regardless of how you feel about the film itself, it would be hard to believe that every viewer did not have an emotional reaction to seeing Leia on screen again. I felt that Fisher was brilliant, elevating every scene she was in. One in particular had tears streaming down my face near the end of the film (no spoilers still).
This release looks like it will be pretty awesome, although from certain angles in the pics here the face sculpt doesn't look perfect. But in others, like the one where she is posed with her hand on her chin looks like it is a still from the film. She will look badass posed with her blaster at the ready, as well.
This one is not up for preorder yet as of this writing, but I would expect that to come in the next few days. You may want to jump on that ASAP when it does.
