Gentle Giant Animated Princess Leia Monument
« on: September 20, 2007, 06:01 PM »
Life-size Animated Leia Monument.  No Joke:



It should be in the next issue of Previews magazine - around $800 bucks and is around 5 feet tall.

I thought that the Life-size Yoda they did was crazy... but this, this is crazy.  :o

Yeah, it's pretty large. I remember standing inline at CIV & seeing her tower the booth.



$880. US eh! So that would be $800. Canadian now.  ;D

Yep, I'd have to spray it with Teflon to keep things from "sticking" to it.

It is a very hot statue. I think it would make a good halloween outfit for my girlfriend.

Somehow so wrong, but yet so right.

Monument is right, this piece is very cool.  I'm not sure my wife would allow me to bring something like this into the house.  Can it pass for a coat hanger?

I was just about to say the same. ;D

Forgot the shooting irons ... Leia's blaster is no longer her deadliest weapon.

Would you call them concealed carry?

Clearly I'm having way too much fun with this....

Well, there goes my '08 Star Wars budget. Just put in my preorder for this. This was just way too cool for me to pass up.

Well, I finally got mine. Did anyone else get this? It requires a bit of assembly but I've not been able to put it together yet. Because of the size and a lack of room for it at the moment my girlfriend is fighting me on setting it up until I clear out a bunch of space. I just wondered if anyone had any assembly issues with it and if it can be unassembled for transport. Right now I just have this huge box in my garage where my car should be glaring at me to put it together.
