As we approached New York Toy Fair 2017, there were plenty of rumors swirling about the remaining two characters from the original Kenner Star Wars 12 coming our in Hasbro 6″ Black Series form, but when Amazon Mexico accidentally leaked the first wave of 40th Anniversary 6″ figures and they were all repacks, collectors got a little restless.

Star Wars Black Series Sabine Wren Figure Review & Photos

Star Wars Black Series 6" Sabine Wren Review

In the aftermath of Rogue One being released in theaters, there have been surprisingly few new Star Wars toys launched and/or announced for the past few weeks. Luckily, I’ve still got several figures from the last wave of 6″ Black Series figures that I need to catch up on with reviews.

Star Wars Black Series Princess Leia 6″ Figure Review (A New Hope)

Close-Up of Star Wars Black Series Princess Leia 6" Figure

Princess Leia Organa was literally at the bottom of my list of new Star Wars Black Series 6″ figures I was planning to open up and review, as my expectations for the figure were pretty low. But with the heartbreaking news of Carrie Fisher’s passing this week, I got nostalgic and ended up freeing the new Hasbro ANH Princess Leia 6″ figure from her plastic prison.
