OK, so I was checking ebay and noticed a guy with LOTS of THX figures up for auction. I ran a check on his other auctions and noticed a Princess Leia.

I read the auction and couldn't help noticing this:


As you all Star Wars collectors know, Japanese version of Princess Leia was made for sale, but it has bannd before its reliese.
And this item became for send away coupon prize.
Only 500 people could get her by sending a banches of coupons.


Broken english, but the guy's from Tokyo, you get the point. Is this true? Did they ban Monkey Face Leia in Japan? Can anyone help me out here? Turbowars? Anyone?

How do you say BIG FAT LIAR in Japanese?
Sounds like a fish on a stick tale to me.

LOL, you mean to tell me you never heard of the Leia being banned in Japan? Well let me tell you.... You know some people will say anything to sell something. If it was true I wonder what the problem was? Was it because Japan does like monkeys?

Monkey-face should have been banned EVERYWHERE!
