Finally! A Leia statue that focuses on her best outfit out of the Trilogy!
Gentle Giant has announced two new bits of Star Wars merchandise for fans of the original films. First up is the Return of the Jedi – Princess Leia (Endor) mini-bust. The $120 1/6th scale statue features the Princess in her Endor scout gear before taking off on the speeder bike chase with her brother Luke Skywalker.
I’ve always loved this outfit for Leia. It was such a departure from her New Hope, and Empire Strikes Back outfits. After seeing her nearly naked as Jabba’s slave, it was nice for her to be in something more practical. I love the slave outfit, but having sexy Leia on Endor would be silly.
Endor Leia measures 6″ tall and will be shipping out in the 4th quarter of 2022.
Imperials beware! The forest moon of Endor just got a little more dangerous, because Princess Leia is on a mission! Wearing her helmet and camouflage poncho, Leia holds her blaster at the ready in this approximately 6-inch tall, 1/6 scale mini-bust. Limited to only 1000 pieces, she comes packaged with a numbered certificate of authenticity in a full-color box.
Next is the newest addition to the jumbo Star Wars action figures. Based on the original Kenner toys of the late 1970s and early 1980s, these upscaled toys took the 3.75″ toys of days gone by and supersized them to 12″. This Jumbo X-Wing Pilot Luke Skywalker not only gives us all the hallmarks of the classic toy, but it adds a feature the original never had: a removable helmet!
Luke will come with more accessories than he did in the Kenner days. The jumbo-sized figure will come with both blue and yellow lightsabers and his blaster. Expect this $80 big boy to ship out during the fourth quarter of this year.
Get those X-Wings in the air and target the Death Star! Jedi Luke Skywalker puts on his pilot gear in this new, exclusive Star Wars Jumbo Figure from GG Ltd.! Standing approximately 12 inches tall, this 1/6 scale figure is based on the classic Star Wars figures of old, but with a new twist! This figure includes, for the first time ever, a removable flight helmet, as well as a blue lightsaber, yellow lightsaber and blaster! It comes packaged on a full-color, resealable clamshell blister card themed to Star Wars: A New Hope.
In the comments section below, let us know what you think about these two new classic Star Wars pieces.
