While the Star Wars films aren't known for having a wide array of female characters, the characters they do have tend to run the gamut of roles. We saw Princess Leia as a snarky rebel leader, a skilled fighter, a metal-clad slave, and my favorite, a knight in shining armor. In a nice turn of events during Return of the Jedi, Leia dons the outfit of recently killed bounty hunter Boushh to rescue Han Solo from Jabba the Hut. I'm glad this was the choice for the second Black figure Leia. (Next I want Hoth or Endor!) I had a real tough time finding this figure when she was supposedly hitting the shelves this past summer, but luckily she (and her whole wave) seem to be heavily stocked in Walgreens right now. Hopefully everyone seeking her out can find her as easily as I did. I'm trying to post all my backlogged Star Wars posts this week before The Force Awakens comes out. It's probably going to be weeks before I get to see it in the theatres, but I'm already excited.Let's check out Leia in her Boushh disguise below!
Leia comes with a helmet, a backpack thing, a staff thing, and of course her Thermal Detonator.
Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!
Here she is with the first Leia figure. I'm a little disappointed in the scale difference.
And here she is with Rey. Much better scale-wise.
