Well what can i say about this figure. other than the nice package this figure was and it stills is a waste of my money :mad: somewhere i read that this figure was put in limbo during the power of the jedi, well i can see why. the face sculpt is at par with the monkey face Leia, the paint job in my figure is deprorable, and the reason i go this figure is because I'm a sick girl with a completist obsesion.

Well don't just take my word for it, I'm sure that you will see plenty on the pegs at WM. (this figure is sure to warm the pegs). who knows you my like it after all I'm new at reviewing figures and don't have all the knowledge of most of you people :D

I voted for this figure in the Fan Poll thingy. I really want this figure and was excited that it would see the light of day. BUt from your review, it sounds like poo-doo. I will buy it, but it might be with a heavy heart. :dead: :beard:

Tomorrow I will post a picture and you can judge by yourself. the figures that Hasbro puts in the site don't look anything like what I got :mad:

I will be back tomorrow to check then.

the figures that Hasbro puts in the site don't look anything like what I got :mad:Yeah, that's one of the biggest problems going I think. What we see in the preview photos -- on the Web, in ads and on the cardbacks, don't look like what we see on the pegs. They show us photos of nicely painted prototype figures, but when you get to the store you struggle to find a decent paint job.

The new Bespin Leia is a perfect example of this to me. Out of a dozen, maybe one or two I see will have good face paints.

Oh well.

That's disappointing, especially since I'm going to be buying 5-6 of these. I've still got to do it, because unlike the bazillion Qui-Gon, Darth Mauls, etc, that Hasbro has put out, I doubt this will ever get an improved resculpt. :dis:

By a show of hands :crazed: who is really getting this figure for the outstanding facesculp?

10-09-2004, 08:29 PM
I hope you just got a bad paint job figure. I hope they all dont look like that

Darth Mina
10-09-2004, 08:31 PM
Well... bothof them in my case look the same as a matter of fact I took a picture of the decent one :dis:

10-09-2004, 08:32 PM

I don't think you want to se that, It bring tears to my eyes :cry:
that Hasbro can really try to pass that piece of plastic as a figure. This is the time when I hate beeing a completist and both an opener and MOC
DAMN IT HASBRO :mad: get he face sculp of humans right, you have no problem with aliens

I'll admit that those pictures depict one ugly handmaiden. Why does she have sunny-side up eggs on her eyes? Clearly she learned how to put her make-up at Barnum and Bailey.

I really hope that this was just a case of a paint job by someone their first day on the job, who happened to have hooks for hands, and a seeing eye dog assisting them. If they all look like that, I may not give Amidala a complete entourage after all. :dis:

Ouch, that's bad news there. I'm almost scared to see it in person.

10-10-2004, 07:05 PM
Oh dear, I recognize this, it's "deep-hooded face syndrome", anybody here remember the Ep 1 Darth Sidious figure's face? The same problems. Hasbro needs to let go of trying to paint faces into sculpted hoods, almost every time it's got problems - CTC Leia, Sidious, Holo Sidious, Rabe - they all have paint issues. It's time to give up this process Hasbro and try something better, stop pretending you know what you're doing at our expense.

Thanks for the photo evidence Mina, sorry this thing is such a freaky ugly piece of crap.

This figure is the other reason why I won't army build.

One- cost
Two- lack of availability(HELLO, SA CLone!)
Other Reason- lousy army-builder.

I like the sparkly paint job, HATE the crap articulation, like the gun, HATE the headsculpt and the pointless ball joint the head is on.

This is like the OTC Bespin Leia all over again.

Are these toys taken from vending machines in foreign countrys and stuck in a Hasbro bubble card?

Well. . . that's pretty hideous. . .

At least you can use her for an extra Imperial Dignitary if need be :D

Hasbro. . . SHAME ON YOU!!!!

I guess if I repaint the figure It could be possible :D
