When was this (or is this) going to be released? How can I get one? I pmed a forum member who has one (or knows about it) and he won't respond...go figure. :rolleyes: Anyway, if anyone can tell me more about this I would greatly appreciate it.

Its gonna be at least the end of the year before it comes out. But nobody actually owns one yet.

Patience young padawan.:)

I was looking around for places that might be pre-ordering them before I responded with a simple "I dunno."

I doesn't look like anyone is pre-ordering them just yet. It probably won't be out until early next year, barring any delays.

Not sure if it is 100% true, but Tycho had a nice explaination in the Yarna thread under the anniversary section of the toys section. Carrie might be upset with the sculpt?! Ut oh.

Its still to early to get any concrete info. on this statue. I'd be surprised if it came out before Spring '07 though.

I doubt Carrie Fisher is upset about the piece. IMO she should be flattered since it was the best she ever looked. It really doesn't matter though since she has no say in the matter.

I bet she'll demand they cover the statue's naked behind with undies, the real costume had that.

Maybe she doesn't want a bunch of creepy guys buying a semi-nude representation of herself. You can tell she's always been a bit uncomfortable with the metal bikini, this is one step further.

Most likely that's exactly it, alot of collectors are creeps now.

Little bit of an rumored update on the Slave Leia Statue.....

Apparently at a recent convention, Gentle Giant invited Carrie Fisher over to look at their products, and she reportedly 'freaked' when she saw how much (and you know what I mean by how much) was shown of the statue.

I believe GG has delayed that statue for now, until they can rework it. Thats why nobody is offering a current preorder for it.

I ordered this from Forbidden Planet International. 109 GBpounds, 161 Euros to me. That rear pic looks like they altered her *$$ so you can't see (as much) of her crack if i may be so vulgar. I could be wrong but thats what it looks like to me. Still looks good though even if its play value has been redu- I won't finish that sentence :lipsrsealed: lol

By the way has anyone ordered from Forbidden Planet before? I did once but it was so long ago I can't even recall what it was I bought from them.

Jayspawn

Never ordered from them before.

More etaliers are offering the statue now. I think its finally a GO item for Gentle Giant. This is definatly gonna turn a LOT of heads. I'm gonna order one for sure -aside from being a great choice character, the detail is f'n sweet! This beats every Slave Leia item ever made.

I just ordered one from Entertainment Earth, which if it is of any concern to Steve, I know about solely through my experiences on this website. I wonder, does it help Steve at all if we hit a link directly from here to get there when we purchase something?

This particular piece is the coolest Leia item yet, it even beats the Sideshow Premium one, which has the gown all creased because of packing problems (I'm still kicking around purchasing one off ebay). 9 months is a long preorder window, but I'll live!

Anytime you order something from one of our sponsors helps the site as sponsors continue to advertise with us which lets us maintain the site (travel expenses to shows, server fees, programmers, server admin, etc).

So I thank you!

The front change is subtle enough that you don't notice it's defying gravity, but the back change is too clumsy, it takes away from the reality of it. I really hope that color isn't the final version, the previous prototype's skirt color was WAY more accurate and alive.

What "changes" did they do exactly?

They added a little more skirt "cloth" to better cover her crotch from the front and back. Compare the pics on GG's update (http://www.gentlegiantltd.com/blog/2006/11/princess-leia-as-jabbas-slave-statue.html) to our SDCC pics: http://photos.sirstevesguide.com/showgallery.php?cat=4935

I see her butt is less exposed, correct me if I'm mistaken but she probably doesn't have an anatomically correct body in that region.

JediTricks
12-20-2006, 08:16 PM
No, the statue wasn't anatomically correct, but it was exposed enough that Carrie Fisher said something to LFL who in turn made GG change it. Steve photographed it at SDCC enough to show what was and wasn't exposed:

What they should have done was make the skirt thing cloth so it wouldn't rob the statue of goodness. Speaking of Carrie Fisher a coworker of my friend's at TRU said that some crew members were so obsessed with carrie fisher in that outfit that she finally had enough and xeroxed her boobs and handed the pics out to the idiots to shut them up. Of course I'm skeptical of that story's accuracy.

Funny story! I can think of Carrie doing such thing.:D

The new skirt looks a bit awkwars like against the laws of physics. I attached 4 pics for comparison. I would have liked the protoype version more but I still like it and 99% I think I'll buy it.

They made it purplish too. Hey GG make the original anyway!!!!! GRRRR @ carrie fisher. :D However if she were my aunt or sister I would be on her side.

JON9000
01-10-2007, 04:52 PM
The only reason I like the original better is that the cloth falls in a more natural way. However, I wouldn't mind if they gave her some undies, as I am pretty sure the original costume came complete with them anyway. I can't see Carrie Fisher galavanting about in a skimpy costume without her knickers. It's not a big deal, as mine will sit with her back towards the wall. I did like the original lighter colored rug better, so I'm a bit disappointed there...

I just hope the paint apps on her body and face look as incredible as the model Steve took pictures of... it will be an amazing product, perhaps even better than my Sideshow premium Leia.

No way, that's too funny! Hit us up with the auction link!

I found this, the guy carved off the extension in the back that GG added at Carrie Fisher's "request" (demand): http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=150134597590 (http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-1751-2978-71/1?AID=5463217&PID=1467700&loc=%68%74%74%70%3a%2f%2f%63%67%69%2e%65%62%61%79% 2e%63%6f%6d%2f%77%73%2f%65%42%61%79%49%53%41%50%49 %2e%64%6c%6c%3f%56%69%65%77%49%74%65%6d%26%69%74%6 5%6d%3d%31%35%30%31%33%34%35%39%37%35%39%30)
