Target 6" Black Series Princess Leia (Bespin Escape)
« on: June 12, 2018, 11:12 AM »
From our friends at Yakface - Rumor Report - Target Exclusive 6" Bespin Leia

Would be good for Target if this is scheduled to hit stores at the same time the Bespin Han wave is hitting stores...

Is there confirmation on the exact outfit on this figure. I'm just asking because a "Bespin Leia" could be a tweak of the "Hoth Leia" that will be hitting soon...

I'd be surprised if they did two similar figures at the same time, but I'd be up for either. The Bespin Gown Leia would be great.

I'm thinking that it's the Bespin gown.  It does some service to Leia, but I don't think it's a version that would be very well received at wider retail.  But it might be a good exclusive.

The Hoth version seems like a solid general release offering.  And if they were considering the Bespin escape / Carbon Freeze chamber version of Leia?  Having the Hoth version and the Bespin escape version on pegs at the same time might be confusing.

All that being said, I would like to see a Bespin escape Leia in the 6" TBS line.  But it might be a good offering in a multi-pack with Chewbacca and a blasted apart version of C-3PO in the cargo net.

What the hell is that thing?!?!  :D

I thought we were getting Bespin Gown Leia?

This is practically the same as the Hoth Leia figure! ( I know different legs, head, etc, but come on)

Weak effort on this one.

A little bit disappointing but how many Bespin escape Leia's are there? Two? PotJ 3.75" and Epic Force? Not that there's a ton of Bespin Gown either

I figured they would go this route.

Well look at that!

Information that I came across indicates that the Bespin escape Leia will probably be coming out as part of a 9/30 reset, give or take a few days.

Picked up the Bespin Leia my buddy grabbed for me last night. A fine figure. I'm loving the new digital facepaint technology Hasbro is using.

I stumbled across this figure as well last night.  Great figure!
