Star Wars Bounty Hunter 11: Boushh

In "Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi" (1983), Princess Leia disguised herself as Boushh, the Bounty Hunter to rescue Han Solo, who had been encased in carbonite and was now in Jabba's Lair.

Princess Leia as Boushh from Hasbro (left) and the latest version by Sideshow (right) without Ubese helmet/breath mask standing in front of Han carbonite.

With Ubese helmet/breath mask on

Hasbro version (at less than half the price of sideshow - thanks to clark quay flea market in the old days - it was okay then)

Sideshow version (it's been a long time coming but it's worth the wait... now give us more than just jedi & sith figures)

Kubrick version

Now i see the difference between the hasbro and sideshow. As usual, you have the kubrick versions!

yah, we had to settle for the hasbro version before sideshow stepped in... about time too!

i also like the kubrick versions - the attention to detail quite amazing, even scale-wise.
