Hot Toys’ Princess Leia Sixth Scale Figure is a movie-accurate depiction of the Rebel Alliance’s leader and regal heroine that is certain to appeal to Star Wars fans and collectors.
A must-have for fans of the original Star Wars trilogy, Hot Toys’ Princess Leia Sixth Scale Figure is a near screen-perfect rendition of the future general as she appeared in Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back. As with other Star Wars collectibles in Hot Toys’ Movie Masterpiece Series (including Episode IV: A New Hope versions of the Princess, Luke Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Darth Vader, Han Solo, Chewbacca, and others), the Episode V Princess Leia Sixth Scale Figure boasts a tremendous degree of detail that is bound to captivate the galaxy’s most discerning aficionadas and aficionados.
Hot Toys’ Princess Leia Sixth Scale Figure is superbly crafted. It features a head sculpt and facial portrait that recreates the likeness of the iconic Carrie Fisher, with marvelous fidelity. The nearly 11-inch tall piece features over 28 articulation points and comes with 7 interchangeable gloved and ungloved hands, which enable collectors to display it clutching accessories or bare handed. Prepared for the frigid conditions of the Hoth system’s sixth planet, the Princess Leia figure comes decked out in a meticulously crafted 3-piece ensemble consisting of a cream-colored fabric vest, white jumpsuit, and gray snow boots.
It wouldn’t be a Hot Toys figure without a cache of authentic extras in tow and the company’s recently released version of Princess Leia doesn’t disappoint. The figure comes with a welding torch and wearable goggles as well as a breathing mask for exploring the moist confines of an exogorth’s asteroid. The Princess also comes with a meticulously crafted DH-17 blaster pistol and a 2-piece display stand (matching the look of the deck plates of Echo Base) with a panel that is emblazoned with her name below the Star Wars logo.
Hot Toys’ Princess Leia Sixth Scale Figure is a masterfully rendered portrayal of science fiction royalty that deserves a place in the collection of any Star Wars fan. The figure released in February 2018 at the manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $219.99 USD.
