Hot Toys "Star Wars: A New Hope" 1/6th scale Princess Leia and Sideshow Collectibles R2-D2

continued from previous toy blog post...

"Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi. You're my only hope.”

While on a secret mission to summon the aid of Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi, Princess Leia is trapped onboard her diplomatic starship, Tantive IV. Knowing she will be captured, she nonetheless fights to the end, and does what she can to ensure that her message will reach Obi-Wan, via R2-D2, even if she herself cannot.

This is my attempt at replicating one of the iconic scenes from the Star Wars film that was released back in May 1977. Princess Leia passes a message to Obi-Wan Kenobi through R2-D2. From here, we follow the astromech droid as it leaves the starship via an escape pod and brings the message first to Luke Skywalker and then to its intended recipient, Obi-Wan Kenobi. From there, we follow the old Jedi Knight and his young friend as they board the Millennium Falcon belonging to Han Solo and Chewbacca, along with the two droids, R2-D2 and C-3PO. The plan was to deliver the blue-prints of the Imperial Death Star super weapon to the Rebel Alliance. But we know how things don't always go the way we planned.
