Unleashed Slave Leia Figure by Hasbro

May 17, 2012

Hasbro’s “Unleashed” line consisted of non-poseable figures, generally in exaggerated action poses of some kind. They’re basically plastic statues. This particular one came out in 2004 and seems to be one of the more sought-after ones if my experience looking on ebay is any indication. It took quite some time before I found one at a reasonable price.

As you can see, this one depicts Leia in her slave girl outfit on what appears to be the bow of Jabba’s sail barge. She’s holding a force pike in a pose that’s fairly similar to the one chosen by Sideshow for their Premium Format Figure. The force pike here is considerably longer, though. I have a feeling that’s actually more accurate. The outfit is quite well done, overall — the plastic of her skirt is translucent, and she has a real metal chain. She’s about 7″ tall on the base, or 10″ tall if you include the force pike.

The sculpt looks nothing like Carrie Fisher, but is very attractive nonetheless. It’s a sort of stylized anime-inspired look.

Interestingly, the artwork on the box features an amazingly good likeness of Fisher as Slave Leia.

I believe these figures cost around $20 when they were available, which isn’t too bad for a figure with this kind of detail. Unfortunately they seem to be commanding considerably more than that, even out of the package. Still, with a little patience you can still get her for a reasonable price.

    congratulations. I’ve been looking for the Han Solo figure due to the Falcon’s ramp but have yet to see one at a reasonable price. 😦
