It is very good work, I just have little to no interest in the character. Does make me look forward to the characters I do want to see, though. Yoda, Sidious, Padmé, Mace, and Dooku should all come out fantastic if this level of quality continues.

Okay Dusty, that's cold to make the switch like that. I knew I should have saved the full pose pic :banghead

10-27-2005, 02:25 PM
There was a full pose pic?
It looks good so far, I'll have to wait to see how the face looks. Too bad these figures are too expensive for me.
It's also very cool of Sideshow to give us the first official peek, thanks for that! :bow
Now bring on the 1/6 scales!

I was hoping the pose would be similar to the one shown in the picture in the background of the preview. I'll probably preorder the exclusive of this, but it may get cancelled closer to release. The only reason I may get it is to have a complete ANH set of Obi, Luke, Han, Vader, and Leia.

I just don't have the same reaction to it that I got from Obi-Wan and Han. :horror

Yeah, when she first put up the post it was a full photo. Not sure when it changed, but when I checked the thread later it had been replaced with the link to the preview page.

I hoped it would be her in that scene on the Tantive IV!
:naughty :joy :banana

I wonder what the exclusive with have with it! :google
Is it really the R2?

Well, I guess we'll all see her soon.... :naughty :wacky

10-27-2005, 06:51 PM
Wow! I love the slit in the side of the dress and the boots. Man, I'm going to love putting in the order for this PF.

:fireworks

Seeing the SSS stuff makes me feel silly for lusting after the Attakus stuff BSS (Before Sideshow).

I wonder if I should open up another credit card account. Maybe Sideshow should go into the business of offering CCards. Then we all could be roped into a tight interdependt-parasitic relationship. :sick

Darklord Dave
10-27-2005, 07:17 PM
Thanks Dusty (and Brant) that was very cool!


She's in the exact pose I imagined, sexy and pissed off.

oh, and Leia's great too...!

As we all know Carrie is a tough sculpt to nail, but it looks like Andy did just that here.

I can't tell though are the hair muffins polystone....?


And if the exclusive is her with the stormtrooper blaster as in the publicity pics, I might just have to get both!:horror

10-27-2005, 07:25 PM
Looks good.

Thanks Shaihulud for the catch.

Maybe the Sideshow Exclusive will be R2-D2! :banana :banana

It looks like the bit just after she's recorded the message... you never know! :cool:

Slave girl would be better though! :naughty

Looks ***very*** promising!

PS: Guys, if you want the 'Salve Leia', go buy the Attakus version. What? Don't like it? Well, you can't always get what you want!

PS2: Thx for the 'complete picture' Shaihulud. She is sexy!


'Salve Leia'... of course i ment 'Slave Leia' from ROTJ!

It's not exactly the best picture. Since you mentioned the hair looking black, I stared at it for a little while. I'm pretty sure it's a brown. You just can't see it all too well.

Is it me or does the robe material look a bit sheer? Also I'm not crazy about seeing so much leg. I'll wait for slave Leia for that!

This Leia is not to my taste. I would have liked the Leia from the Empire Strikes Back. Of course, slave Leia is a given, but I loved the perky one from ESB :(

now can we get a Boba Fett?

Well, I assumed that the last little question mark box on the Spooktacular exclusive announcement space was being reserved for Princess Leia, but it has been filled with the Bone Clones Alien Skull. I guess that means that Leia isn't going up for preorder during the Spooktacular event. Maybe next week?

SSC_Nerd

God knows that he'll be around sooner or later. It's just a matter of time! :D

Mark my words,,, Boba Fett will be the highest selling Star Wars figure Sideshow has ever released.

The face doesnt impress me too much. Doesnt look like Carrie Fisher to me...somehow awkward. Otherwise - very nice pose decision, nice clothes.
But the face... :sick

BDboystoys
10-30-2005, 03:50 AM
I agree. it definately looks like her to me but somethings *alittle* off, but its still great looking! her eyebrows maybe? No actually I really dont know. Maybe shes to thin? she wasnt in the first one. Nup i really dont know, its something small though.

oxbeard
10-30-2005, 04:45 AM
I don't know, I think the likeness is very good. Would have to do a comparison side by side to make sure. But just from memory looks great. I always thought the ANH CF was a distinictly different look from ESB and ROJ. This ANH sculpt looks spot on.

lcummins
10-30-2005, 06:30 AM
I agree with Ox, I don't think you could get much better on the sculpt! Andy did a fantastic job! Wait for the pics when she comes up for pre-order and then decide! :banana

You guys are difficult...this REALLY looks like her...I think its one of the best facial sculpt and likeness done by Sideshow... That IS Carrie Fisher from a new hope...

10-30-2005, 07:22 AM
After further inspection, the hair definitly looks molded not rooted.

Gruson
10-30-2005, 07:59 AM
I agree that she looks good but something is slightly off.

I think it's the eyes or eyebrows. She is also too tan but that may be Sideshow's photographer.

http://www.jedi-academy.com/props/leia_headshot.jpg

Almost every piece looks MUCH better in person than the Sideshow pictures. :)

oxbeard
10-30-2005, 08:20 AM
Thanks for the pic G. Now let's do the side by side

I think as far as the 'tan' goes it is likely just from the lighting.

lcummins
10-30-2005, 08:24 AM
The lips are a little fatter and the face seems a little longer, but that is probably just from the picture angle. I think it looks dead on! Can't wait for this one! :banana

10-30-2005, 08:47 AM
No offence to Carrie Fisher but I think Andy's sculpt is prettier than the real thing!

Viking28
10-30-2005, 08:52 AM
I think Andy did a awesome job with her!!!

Radagaster
10-30-2005, 10:30 AM
I'll wait for Slave Leia . . .even if one is not made. This one just does nothing for me. From a sexiness rating, Seven of Nine does a much better job of that.

I agree with the sheerness concern . . .the material makes it look a bit like a Barbie Doll outfit.

screamingmetal
10-30-2005, 01:31 PM
I think it looks just like her. Some of the missing detail around the mouth area could be due to the lighting. But other then the irises being a bit bigger then in the real thing, it's a great likeness.

Migwit
10-30-2005, 03:19 PM
I think the sculpt is awesome, and Andy did a fantastic job! Can't wait til the preorder is up!!! :banana

NASEDO
10-30-2005, 04:24 PM
The biggest problem will be the paint, the sculpt is right on. Her hair needs to be Brown, and her face is too red, it needs to a more of a pale skin color.

I agree that this statue looks great! Of the five main characters from Episode IV, this was the statue that I was least excited to see get released. However, after seeing the preview pics, it exceeded my expectations and looks like it is going to be terrific! This one ranks right up there with the others--it looks like this line is shaping up to be something really worth collecting.

Alice Adrenochrome
11-01-2005, 11:57 AM
Even though the likeness is not 100 %, the statue is still awesome. Sideshow better make sure that the extra for the exclusive version is... R2D2! For one, because I love those non human characters, and for an other because I could use an extra R2 for my collection! And if SS decides to do a 'Empire Strikes Back' Lea in stead of the 'A New Hope' Lea, that's fine with me. AS LONG AS THEY DON'T COME UP WITH A SLAVE LEA!!! Attakus made that one already.

How much will the Statue cost??

Darklord Dave

She'll probably run around the same as the other SW PFs. $225-250.

Ah, thx. Now it's clear to me - the mouth part is just not accurate. Even though the crinkles are something Carrie Fisher might not like ( ;) ), they are part of her face and should have been represented.
Overall, the face is just too off for this price in my opinion...but I'm glad for everyone who likes it. :)

If you brighten the image, you can see the wrinkles. I also made her look less tan and it looked a lot better.

oxbeard
11-03-2005, 09:58 AM
I really think the lighting of the preview pic is causing a lot of these concerns. The publicity still is obviously a studio shot under the lights and flash. While the preview shot doesn't appear to have nearly as much lighting, hence the darker skin tone as well as hiding some detail. I have no worries on this one. Andy is amazing!!

As for the price, way overpriced. Just my opinion.

i agree on the price part. It could be a little cheaper...
