I’ve never seen a LL one before, and even to a non varient collector like me the different accessories are very noticeable.
Are the belt and weapon unique to LL for her as well?
And I assume that the COO is different on the actual figure?
I assume that these difficult/expensive to pick up?
Snaketibe said:Princess Leia Organa (in Combat Poncho). A long name for a good figure. As stated in the Yoda thread, this figure jointly holds the record for coming with the most accessories alongside Yoda and Squid Head, with four. That's actually very good value for a Star Wars figure, and what's even better, they're all relevant and sensible... even necessary! Unlike the frankly feeble Luke Skywalker (in Battle Poncho) - I'm not quite sure why Luke's poncho is good for battles, but Leia's is only suitable for combat, but I digress - Leia's helmet is removable, and she's all the better for it! The poncho itself and belt work well together too, and the gun is correct. Splendid stuff!
Like most figures, there are a few variants to be found with this one, with the main two seeming to be similar, but differing sculpts most easily distinguished by the width of her head... Or fat and thin head, if you prefer! The torso sculpts are also different to one another, but if she's wearing her poncho you won't be seeing much of that!
However, if you're after something a little more exotic, there's also the Lili Ledy variants. There's at least two of those to be found, and again they are similar, although one comes with a grey Leia blaster, whilst the other comes with a more familiar (but still incorrect for this character!) blue Leia blaster. The poncho is a very different shade of yellow / green on the Lili Ledy figures too (and I believe the two different Lili Ledy variants I've seen come with slightly different shades of yellow / green poncho to one another, albeit both are still very different to the Kenner versions). What many collectors might not know however is that the Lili Ledy poncho is not just a different shade, it also comes with no arm holes! Unlike the Kenner ponchos where you can slip Leia's arms through the holes like sleeves to have a better fit (and to allow her to have her poncho tucked into her belt yet still raise her arm to fire her blaster), the lili Ledy one has no such convenience. Instead, if you want her poncho neatly tucked into her belt, you're pretty much forced to display her with her arms by her sides, as she certainly won't be raising her blaster to shoot any stormtroopers any time soon! :lol:
Anyway, here are my three, including my Lili Ledy. Sorry, I forgot to take close-ups of the COO's with this figure, but to compensate I'm including some extra shots of the Ledy variant.

As threatened, here are the COO close-ups. Apologies for the late delivery / posting... Busy, busy, busy! :roll: :lol:
I have taken these new photos with the figures arranged in the same left to right order as shown in my other photos above. However, since the black on black can make it difficult to actually see the COO clearly on the middle Leia, I've also done a second pair of images, but this time subtly tweaked them in Photoshop to show the COO's more clearly... See if you can spot the difference! :lol:
Lastly, in answer to Nick's (@Mini99) question, the Lili Ledy Leia would appear to have a very similar COO to the regular 'fat head' Kenner version... at least according to my eyes, but then again, I wear glasses so what do I know? :lol:
