Toy Victory: All The Slave Leias...All The Slave Leias...

If you like it then you shoulda put a metal bikini on it...

Apparently it was Star Warsapalooza in New Jersey this week as multiple series of figures hit the peggs. If you've read my stuff before, you know Central NJ is swarming with scalpers and finding 2 new figures the same day is pure luck. Finding 12 is completely amazing! I'll start you off with a couple of ladies I scooped up...

This is a long awaited update for Slave Leia. The likeness is solid, the articulation is great for such a tiny little figure that just might be in scale with her rebel boys and you get the bonus of an extra lower half so she can lounge beside Jabba and plot his drippy strangulation.

Next up are two bar flies who probably appeared for a milisecond in the "creature cantina" scene of the REAL first Star Wars movie; Leesub Sirlin (the pink lady) and Hrchek Kal Fas (the lizard man). While both have nothing to do with Endor, Hoth or the Gungan Droid Battle (the three scenes I primarily collect for), I couldn't help snagging some more cantina drunks to go with the ones I already have..especially if one is a balding pink hotty who looks like she stepped out of The Last Starfighter. Why the lizard guy? How can you not love a sloshed Saurin droid trader?! The sculpt on this one won me over. If you were an old school Star Wars lover and bowed out from boredom, you may want to take a look. The prices are a little ridiculous for a single figure, but the sculpt and articulation make them must have updates for your older versions.

  1. Pretty neat that the Cantina figures have glasses, know I can really have them drink and get all drunk and start a fight over Leia. Which by the way has a very long skirt, originally it wasnt that long at all, so it plans no substitute for Generic Viagra .
