This Princess Leia in Slave Outfit was released in Fall of 2009 as part of the basic figure assortment from The Legacy Collection. Leia can be seen wearing the Slave Outfit in Jabba's Palce and on the sail barge.
Slave Leia has 15 points of articulation, with Leia's middle section having a ball-jointed upper torso, and a swivel waist. The only other swivel joints besides in the waist are in both legs, all other points of articulation are ball-jointed. The figure is quite petite, and even though there is articulation in both knees and ankles, it stands a little shaky on both feet. The slightly over-sized glass can be held by the right hand pretty well, but it's not a good fit for the left hand. The same goes for the Force Pike, however, it is possible to have Leia hold the weapon with the right hand, and use the second hand for support, which then looks like her holding it with both hands. The interesting concept about this figure is that it is designed to be taken apart. You can unplug her upper body, and plug in a different set of legs, which then makes Leia sit, instead of stand. When you unplug the upper body, you can also remove the soft-goods skirt and the belt. You can also pop the head off in order to remove the chain from around the neck. Having all these options might be a good thing, but if you play with it too much, you end up getting loose joints.
Leia's paint application is cleanly applied with no smudges or paint errors. There is no weathering or any kind of dirt to be found on the boots. Leia's head sculpt is nicely detailed, and looks pretty closely to what Carrie Fisher looked like in Return Of The Jedi. It's easy to tell that Hasbro tried to please collectors with this release. Not only is the Princess ultra-articulated with 15 joints, but the second pair of legs is a nice addition and gives fans the chance to display the figure differently. Aesthetically, the joints in the upper body aren't too pleasing, but it adds the possibility to pose Leia in a fighting or neutral position. All in all, this Slave Leia is the best version of the Princess in her famous Slave Outfit that Hasbro has released as of 2010, and if you are a fan of Leia Organa, or a fan of The Return Of The Jedi, you'll probably want to add this figure to your collection!
