    I do wish Leia would have come out a tad better. After such a long wait, I had my hopes up that they would knock this one out of the park. The face doesn’t quite hit the mark. It’s not horrible, I’ve certainly seen worse, but it doesn’t quite capture Carrie Fisher the way I’d hoped it would. The first thing that struck me was the scowl on her face. I said elsewhere that I thought the base sculpt was fairly good and it just needed better paint apps. I’d say redo the eyes, maybe redder lips, lighter/thinner brows and some highlights/lowlights in her hair.

    The softgoods tend to loose the form and be one mono-shape rather than hanging and flowing but I’m not sure how to overcome that at this scale and pricepoint.

    These all look good, but I’m most interested in Princess Leia and the Snowtrooper.

    I love all the detailing in the sculpt of the Snowtrooper and that they used off-white in the appropriate places, but for some reason the proportions seem a bit off to me. The figure looks far too tall and lean. It’s not that I remember these guys being husky, it’s just they didn’t seem to be particularly tall either. And perhaps their costumes were slightly bulkier.
