  • This 40th Anniversary Collection Princess Leia Organa action figure was released in February 2017
  • For this release Hasbro re-worked Princess Leia's head from the previous Black Series Princess Leia figure and gave it a new paint application
  • You can use the comparison tool to look at both figures from different angles or have a look at this comparison picture
  • Hasbro included Leia's basic blaster, an Imperial Stormtrooper blaster, a removable belt and a removable soft-goods dress with the figure
  • Leia's belt can be unplugged in the back (this works well)
  • Once the belt is unplugged it's possible to pull the dress off the figure (not recommended, it's quite difficult to put it back on properly and make it look good without too many wrinkles)
  • The figure is able to hold both weapons, but they fit only loosely into the hands
  • The soft-goods dress looks good and works overall quite well
  • Sometimes the hood stays on perfectly while other times it seems impossible to place over Leia's head just right, a plastic hood/soft-goods dress combination would have probably worked better in this case
  • The head sculpt is a nice improvement comopared to the previously released Leia figure
  • The paint application on the clothing feels simple (white boots, white dress, white and silver belt), but it's true to the outfit seen in A New Hope
  • We didn't encounter any balancing issues with the figure
  • An easy way to differentiate the regular released Black Series Princess Leia figure from the 40th Anniversary Princess Leia figure is by looking at the boots, here is a comparison picture (first release left, this 40th Anniversary figure right)
  • As of this review, this is the best representation of ANH Leia in Hasbro's 6" line so far and it will likely be the best version for a long time to come
