Princess Leia in Boushh Disguise
Review by JoshB
Princess Leia in Boushh Disguise... We all know who Princess Leia is and why she is in this outfit. But is the toy any good?
Meh, Could be worse.
Leia figures have been tough to do. Nobody has really captured Carrie Fisher's likeness well on figures of this size. She's practically un-sculptable.
The Boushh disguise is another matter. I love the design of this costume, and I typically pick one up each time it is issued. When the 30th anniversary collection came out, and Leia as Boushh came out, I jumped right on it.
Leia as Boushh comes with a helmet, weapon and thermal detonator. The weapon is too soft and comes bent out of shape in the package. The thermal detonator attaches to the left hand but I wouldn't recommend removing it - it is so small you will probably lose it.
Articulation is great from the waist down, with articulated hips, knees and ankles.
The shoulder are ball jointed, but the elbows only have swivel joints, pretty much guaranteeing that the pose she is in will be the only pose she can do.
The neck is articulated and of course the helmet is removable.
The face on this figure is atrocious. Leia looks as if she had her oxygen supply cut off coming out of the womb. Its just horrible really. Keep the helmet on this one. She is what we like to call in toy terms, a "Butterface" as in the body is nice, BUT HER FACE...!
Aside from the face, its an OK figure with a fair amount of detail.
