Compare this Princess Leia Organa figure
This Princess Leia in Bespin Gown was released in a Princess Leia Collection 2-pack - during the The Power Of The Force 2 collection in 1997. The second figure in the set was a Han Solo in Bespin Gear. Princess Leia is based on her appearance on Bespin in The Empire Strikes Back.
Kenner/Hasbro gave the figure 5 swivel joints - one in the neck - one in each shoulder - and one in each leg. The figure's waist is not movable. With no way to adjust the knees or ankles - the figure stands very shaky. Luckily - Leia has one peg hole in the right foot - which is enough to place her on a stand. There was no weapon included with Leia - but in the movie she wasn't seen carrying one in this specific outfit either. And even though there wasn't a weapon included - Kenner/Hasbro made the shoulder pads - the white gown - the belt and the soft-goods skirt removable.
The paint application on Bespin Leia is cleanly applied - but pretty basic. The glittery colors on the soft-goods skirt are out of place and don't resemble the look the dress had in the movie. The white gown looks quite nice with lots of patterns in it - but it doesn't appear as if Kenner/Hasbro tried to copy the movie version too closely. The facial sculpt and Leia's hairstyle still looks nice after all these years. Unfortunately - this figure was released at a time when there wasn't much attention paid to scale - and the figure is too tall for Leia. Overall - this figure was OK for its time - but there are better options available for Bespin Leia these days.
The formidable sight of Darth Vader strikes a reflex reaction in Han Solo's trigger finger - but the Dark Lord's power proves too great and Princess Leia and her band of Rebels are taken captive.
