Barbie Leia on a Speeder Bike. Lets hope she's going to be here. Time will tell I guess.

I hope she's released here soon, I like this version of Leia (except that I hope her hair is not red like the previous pictures I've seen).  For this particular one I wish that she wasn't smiling but I'll take it over the CS Leia anyday.  I'm one of the ones that liked the celebration Leia and was always hoping for better ones.  Maybe it has to do with the Barbie collector in me but I like her and I'm hoping that I can get a few because I can always pick up another scout trooper to ride the extra speeder and use the new body for other Leia's.

I sure hope she comes to the Targets out by me.  I wouldn't pass her up in a heartbeat.

Last I have heard Target is the store to have this product this Fall. It would make sense since they had the Biker Scout and Luke.

For those of you looking for me. I am now at www.sandtroopers.com

Wish I had picked up the Biker Scout & Speeder Bike package when it was out.  But at that time I wasn't a die-hard collector.   :'(

I noticed that too.  Some people just have way too much money to spend, and if you're just a little bit patient then you could get it a lot cheaper.

Save those receipts.  I smell a clearance.

I *always* save my receipts in case of a sale or clearance.  I hope I can find Leia with Speederbike here.  I hate exclusives, because they're that much harder to find; the non-exclusives are bad enough, at least in this area.  If it's not poor distribution, it's all the flea-market and eBay dealers.

There are some nice photo's of the new Leia on her bike that someone took over in the 12" section at rebelscum's forums.  He gives a nice review also.

Just received her:

Leia-no helmet

Leia-helmet

I like the blaster damage to the bike and I like the doll in general.  The articulation is good, the clothing makes two outfits (take off the poncho and you have the Endor breifing room).  The hair is well done and I can put her in a Hoth suit for another scene.  Not crazy about the smile, the only complaint I have (and it's minor at that).

All in all...I like it ;D.
