UPDATE: Exclusive Leia Hologram Variant

6_holo_leia_variant

Heads up variant hunters. It appears that there is in fact a variant for the holograph Leia that is included with the exclusive 6″ Black Series Obi-Wan Kenobi. A post from the 6″ Black Series Collectors Group on Facebook shows the example of her with the painted face and hands. Which do you prefer?

Thanks to @cerbres_child on Twitter for the alert.

UPDATE: The person on Facebook apparently customized theirs to have the painted face and hands. No variant exists. Crisis over.
