Princess Leia never came across as a damsel in distress. She might be wearing the traditional gown of the Alderaan royal family when she was captured on her consular ship Tantive IV but she was all ready to do battle once Luke Skywalker and Han Solo broke her out of her prison cell. In fact she was the one that got them out of a fix when they were cut off from their only escape route by Stormtroopers once their jail break attempt was discovered. She grabbed a E-11 BlasTech Standard Imperial Sidearm / Stormtrooper Blaster Rifle and shot a hole in a garbage chute and told everyone to dive in to escape the Imperials.
Here's Hot Toys MMS298 "Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope" 1/6th scale Carrier Fisher as Princess Leia Collectible Figure with the blaster that came with the boxed set. The earlier review covered the Princess with her pistol, a "Drearian Defense Conglomerate Defender sporting blaster pistol". It is actually a Vostok Margolin .22LR target pistol, with some muzzle attachment fitted, selected for its diminutive size, keeping the prop gun from looking too bulky and unwieldy in Fisher's petite hands.

As mentioned in the first part review, the female body Hot Toys uses is a jointed body and not those seamless ones that are all the rage these days. You can clearly see the knee joints at the legs.
Check out the close-up shots of the Hot Toys MMS298 "Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope" 1/6th scale Carrier Fisher as Princess Leia head sculpt. I doubt it can get any better than this. Kudos to Hot Toys for doing a really fine job with the sculpting.
