Beautiful Princess Leia Custom

The auction has since ended, but an amazing 12″ custom Princess Leia figure was recently available on eBay.

This hand crafted figure portrait  from ROTJ truly captures the essense of Carrie Fisher’s beauty in ROTJ.  Given her recent passing, I couldn’t help but share.

I hope you enjoy viewing the images as much as I did.  For more pics of this amazing work of art, click here.

If you pre-ordered a “Desert Den” playset from Twelfth Parsec, start keeping an eye on your email for a shipping notice as these have begun to arrive on the doorsteps of collectors.

Personal Note:  Independent groups who are actually fans themselves are starting to take advantage of Hasbro’s negligence on the playset front, and hopefully we will see bigger and better things like this in the future.

On any note, head to the forums for a closer look.
