It's 1977 all over again!!! Jul 10, 2004
In case anybody is unclear as to which Leia figure this is(since there is no picture), this is the VINTAGE re-release. Although the figure itself is a new sculpt, the front of the card is a replica of the 1977 Star Wars Liea cardback. Right down to the "coffin style" plastic bubble, to the company name Kenner. Yes, instead of Hasbro the package says Kenner. There are only a few differences from the original package. Most notable is the back side of the card which tells about the re-releases and shows some of the upcoming releases. This is a must have for the die hard collector. I'm shocked at the rate new Star Wars figures sell out, and very surprised that this LIMITED EDITION figure has been in stock for a week and a half now. Don't miss out on one of the best S.W. toys released since 1985.

"You are part of the Rebel Alliance, & a Traitor!" Jul 17, 2004
I saw the new retro-figures yesterday in my local store and instantly snatched them up (I paid nowhere near the 10.99 price for each, though).
The Princess Leia figure is a new resculpt,& comes with the trademark white gown (made of cloth), bun hair-do and her laser pistol she used at the beginning of "Star Wars". The figure card has the retro-image from the 12 back card with a new "historical" back to it (also, lists the other 11 figures that go with the full set). The figure is housed in a protective plastic case with the "Star Wars" logo in raised letters on the back.
As for people pis*ing & moaning about the price, grow-up & stop being such a tightwad. We all know you bought the figure & are happy with the purchase. Unless, you want to shell out the big bucks & try to get the 78-79 original.

Much better Leia Mar 24, 2011
First of all, this is a HUGE improvement over the "monkey face" Leia from the POTF2 figure in from the mid-1990s. It's an appropriate feminine version of Leia. The face looks a bit too "doll-like," but the body and sculpt are good and she's got decent articulation. I haven't seen any better versions of the hair-bun Leia since, so get this one if you want to recreate the Death Star rescue scene.
Good addition to my collection Jan 26, 2013

This is an original figurine and has all the details. A good quality build and a good addition to my collection.

$10.99 for a new figure? Jul 14, 2004
Normally, SW figures are $4.99-$5.99. This is a SW figure packed in a pseudo-Star Case, which isn't worth anywhere near an extra $5. Toy collecting is doomed to repeat the mistakes of the comic book industry, little by little.
With that said, the unpunched card repro is cool for someone who has never seen it before or had an original carded figure when they were younger. However, the nostalgia wears off rather quickly. Be aware that the figures are not the original casts and the card back is different, previewing the re-release line. Kind of spoils the fun.
