Hey FiQ-fans! It’s the final Friday of another month, and that means it’s time for another FiQ Friday Fab Five @ 5! For today’s list, I’m jumping over to that galaxy far, far away, looking at the top 5 Princess Leia Organa action figures!
Leia’s disguised look from the beginning of Return of the Jedi is one of her coolest looks from the whole franchise. It’s had a lot of good figures, and it gave us the best version of Leia in the ’90s Power of the Force II re-launch.
It’s hard to beat the original, right? Well, I mean, not *that* hard, since she’s fourth on the list, but still. This Leia is a bit dated, but like all of the vintage figures, she’s just got a lot of charm.
After the less than stellar offering from The Force Awakens, this version of the late Carrie Fisher as she was seen in The Last Jedi is one of the best Hasbro’s put out. What she lacks in poseability, she more than makes up for in sculpting.
#2: Hoth Leia – The Vintage Collection (Hasbro)
Leia’s Hoth look is a good middle ground between her regal attire and her more action-oriented personality. The vintage collection’s version of the costume from 2010 is to date the best version of the costume in action figure form.
Remember what I said about it being hard to beat the original? Well, it wasn’t that far off. Plain and simple, this is the look most people associate with Leia, and Hasbro delivered a truly awesome figure, albeit on their second go at it. The initial release had a lackluster head sculpt, but the improved sculpt from the 40th Anniversary line is top-notch.
