2005 Comic Con Exclusive - Holographic Princess Leia
« on: April 7, 2005, 09:21 PM »
The Holographic craze continues... first The Emperor, then Yoda, now Princess Leia?

According to the Official Site Holographic Princess Leia is this year's Comic Con Exclusive figure!

Though StarWarsShop.com will not be offering items to purchase at Celebration III, fans will get to preview some of items featured or soon to be available at the site:
- Hasbro Holographic Leia Prototype (Comic-Con 2005 Figure) (StarWarsShop.com exclusive)

Look for Leia to show up at StarWarsShop.com after the convention season is over.

Sweet! Glad I am goin'! :D

I like the Holographic figures better than the silver painted ones.

Its cool and all...but...why?  They already did a Holo Leia in proper scale.  I bought the Emperor Holo because he was a Holo in TPM.  This one though sort of sucks.  (Enter Bust Ups Complaints about making holo figures)  Why not go for a new Spirit of Anakin or Yoda figure instead :-\

Rumors have popped up that TRU will have a Holo/Spirit Anakin of some sort this summer or fall...

Yeah, I guess I expect that to be the ROTS Holo version though, but I guess that was an assumption

Forgive me if there's some prior discussion on this elsewhere, but I didn't see any so I figured I'd start my first real thread here.  Woot.  So there's a Holographic Leia on the way finally, exclusive to Comic Con, but being distributed at Celebration III in a couple weeks too.  To be honest, I've grown a little tired of all the holographic and spirit figures, but since Leia was the first person we ever saw in this form in the saga, I guess I'm a little more excited about it.  Hopefully the get the pose right.  I'll be buying one, how about you guys?

Ah, crap.  I see there's a similar thread in the OTC forum.  Feel free to lock or delete this one.  Sorry!

At least the online shop will have the Leia it sounds like.

Agreed.  Unfortunately I can't make it to the cons either (or Celebration III), so I'm glad that SWShop will have it eventually.  It might be a cool figure, but they are kind of starting to push it with all of the holographic business.  I suppose it is an easy enough (and cheap enough) "exclusive" figure to produce, and maybe that has something to do with it.  I would say they could do something "spiffy" the way Palisades had figures like Indiana Kermit as their "tour exclusive", but then again, if it was an all-new, only available at the shows Star Wars figure, I have a feeling we'd have a lot of upset collectors if we couldn't find it.  Probably better that it isn't something newly sculpted, and instead an old figure in holographic or silver form :).

Well that's good then.

But someone refresh my memory, when did leia appear as a hologram that wasn't a foot tall?  We already have this figure, it came with Artoo Detoo one time, and was correctly scaled at that juncture.

Why is this Leia listed as a "prototype" at SWS.com?

That seems a little strange, doesn't it?  Any know what that's about, or do you think it's just a mistake?

To get back on topic for a moment (thanks Scott for straying  >:(   ), I plan on using my holo Leia to finally have a properly scaled version for my Droid Factory R2-D2!

I am confused....when was Leia ever shown as a full size holograph in the OT?

I only recall the little bitty one that R2 cast from his projector...

You're right Travis, that was pretty much it for her in Holographic form.

So a 4" Hasbro Holo Leia would probably work pretty well with that fancy schmancy $100 radio controlled R2 that they put out a couple years ago...  8)
