Compare this Princess Leia Organa figure
This Princess Leia was released in a comic 2-pack during The Anniversary Collection in 2007. The second action figure in the set was Darth Vader. Both figures - Darth Vader and Princess Leia are based on the Dark Horse comic book INFINITIES series for The Empire Strikes Back.
Princess Leia has 14 joints - with ball-joints in the neck - shoulders - knees and ankles. Besides the ball-joints - Hasbro added swivel joints in the elbows - wrists - waist and legs. Leia has no balancing problems and stands securely on her own. The only accessory included was a blue lightsaber - which fits well into both of the figure's hands. The blue lightsaber blade is removable - so that the Princess can be displayed with an either ignited lightsaber - or just holding the hilt itself. The interesting part about the hilt is that it's made out of very soft plastic - which easily bends. We actually had to look up the character in the comic book and check to see if Leia used a Count-Dooku-like lightsaber - because the hilt had a curve to it. Back in 2002 when Hasbro first introduced lightsabers with removable blades in the SAGA collection - many of the blades broke right where they were plugged into the hilt. The soft plastic used here on this lightsaber is very likely the result of that - and Hasbro trying to solve that problem.
The paint application on Leia is average - with cleanly applied colors - but no weathering or dirt on it. The sculpt is decent - with Leia looking a little manly and Samurai-like. Overall - this version of Princess Leia is unique - but a bit on the boring side. If you are into the expanded universe or Dark Horse's Infinities comic book series - you might want to add this figure to your collection.
In this tale - Princess Leia fulfills Luke Skywalker's dying words - "Find master Yoda... Train as a Jedi... Go to Dagobah." On the jungle world of Dagobah - Leia is shocked to learn her father is the evil Darth Vader. Under the tutelage - Leia becomes a skilled Jedi but faces a final trial: battle her father in a lightsaber duel and resist his attempts to turn her to the dark side.
