Sweet!  I had really wanted the statue of her in her white dress, so this is perfect for me.

When this line first started i told myself i wouldnt buy multiple characters in different outfits, but i want this one (and probably will want the other ones too). I will be trying for this one as well.

It looks they are opening the ANH floodgates...I'm sure a Han in smugglers outfit can't be too far behind.

Nice.

Surprised this is a priority pre-order instead of the way Jabba and Maul were handled.

Perhaps a stormtrooper blaster for the exclusive? Anyone else have any other thoughts?

that is the logical bet.

DO you think Han as a smuggler is far behind ?

If not, I will probably get this one so I can have the trio.

I guess it could be the "death star plans" which was some kind of disc right?  Then again that would be sort of a lame exclusive.  So, yeah a stormtrooper blaster sounds about right.  I supposed maybe a small, translucent blue statue of her being a hologram?

I thought about that but figured that would be R2's exclusive.

What about an ITO Interrogation Droid exclusive?  That'd be pretty cool...

I've stayed away from these 12" figures, but this Leia is so nice.  I am tempted to get her, but I know that then I'd want the ANH Han to go with her... then I'd want a Chewie to go with Han, then the Chess table, etc etc etc.   :P

I'm in the same boat for the most part.  I bought the initial Bespin Han, justifying it because Han is my favorite character - the ESB my favorite movie - and I've always enjoyed the "Bespin look" of Han.  After I got it, I wanted more, and for awhile considered collecting all the OT-based ones.  Then the Jabba set was announced, and I knew I would never be able to keep up financially with that line - especially if I wanted to buy anything else.  Now, seeing this Leia, I'm awfully tempted to place a preorder for this one next week.  But, I know if I get this Leia, I want an ANH Han.  Then I always intended to get a Chewie (to go with Han), and then I'd want a Luke as well.  Well, then I'd want the droids, and a Vader, and probably a Stormtrooper - anyways, its a slippery slope for me, I know that.  It is awfully tempting though :).
