Funko Pop Slave Leia Vinyl Bobble-head (with Jedi Luke, C-3PO, and Boba Fett)

July 19, 2012

I posted about the Jabba the Hutt and Gamorrean Guard bobble-heads from the Funko POP! line earlier, and it seemed like a natural choice to get the Slave Leia one as well. In fact, I decided to go ahead and get the rest of the ones that might conceivably fit in a Jabba’s Palace display.

I’m really not a fan of the Slave Leia one, though. These figures already have ridiculously big heads, and they decided to shrink Leia’s body way down to the point that she has a little trouble standing without her base. I’d like it better if she had a body similar in proportion to the other figures. They also forgot to paint one of her earrings gold, as you can see in the shot above.

I’m not going to do separate entries for the rest of these guys, but here they are as a group, along with Jabba and the Gamorrean. You can take them off their bases, and I think I like the baseless look better — especially when displayed with Jabba, who doesn’t have a base to begin with. I like the look of these overall, but I really would prefer them as static figures rather than bobble-heads. I find that their heads have a tendency to look off to one direction or the other when the spring gets a little twisted, and I don’t really see the appeal of the shaking heads, personally.
