The Star Wars community lost an amazing woman in Carrie Fisher earlier this year, and Hot Toys has designed an outstanding new figure to celebrate her work in the franchise's best film, Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back.
The new figure depicts Fisher's Princess Leia in her white Hoth garb and features a wonderfully accurate likeness to the actress. The figure comes with all the articulation that Hot Toys is known for, and all of the clothing items are made from real fabrics. She'll also include a blaster, interchangeable hands, a welding torch, and more. You can view the impressive new figure in the gallery, and for all of the included items you can check out the official description below. Princess Leia will ship out sometime between Quarter 4 of 2017 and Quarter 1 of 2018.
