Review – Sideshow 12″ Princess Leia as Boushh

22 09 2007

I’ve hunted for a Leia in Boushh disguise 12″ figure even before Sideshow landed the Star Wars 12″ license. Hasbro’s Leia Boushh was my target and it came in a pack of three with Luke and Han.

Secondly, I would like to have a really nice Chewbacca towering over this figure in my cabinet someday! And this Leia in Boushh disguise will definitely have a thermal detonator in hand. Wait a minute… I can even have her stand before Jabba and his throne! What a cool thought… but Chewie has to come first.
