This is one of my favorite vintage figures and a no-brainer for the jumbo line.

I like this one, be spin han and be spin luke, but man...I don't have the room or the cash for all of them. I stopped collecting this line after the original 12 and boba fett.

I like this one, also one of my all time favorites. However, not really all that interested in owning it in the Jumbo size

I haven't taken the plunge with this line yet but Boushh Leia was VERY high on my want list. There are only 2 more figures remaining for Gentle Giant to release and then I'm taking the plunge: Jedi Luke and Skiff Lando. Boushh Leia brings me one step closer to getting into this line. I don't know whether to be excited about the figure or worried about my wallet.

This is one I've been waiting for. Boushh was one of my favorite figures back in the day. Consider it sold!

That staff/ weapon looks really long...
Think this will get bundled into IG-88 clamshells?
Looking forward to this figure - been ages since it was announced.

Anyone else noticed the SDCC 2015 vinyl version paint app error?
Left thigh.

Last years hand-painted prototype was correct.
Sheesh.

The inner upper legs (right up there in the crotch) are supposed to be painted.

I wish I could figure out how to post pictures on here - the left thigh where the cape is, does not have the top trouser panel painted on this years 2015 vinyl figure.
It's not something I noticed upon first viewing, either.

I've just added the image(s) to my profile gallery if anyone is interested.
Feel free to place the image in this thread if you know how - it's beyond me.

It's not a deal-breaker, but hopefully it's something they can catch and fix before the final version arrives.

FWIW, the Rebelscum picture hosting has never worked well for me. I upload to photobucket and use the link from there when I want to share an image here.

I'd say it's a HUGE dealbreaker if the final production piece is incorrectly painted like that. This is not a simple fix after they ship out like the IG88 typo cardback. Somehow we need to make GG aware of this or get reassurance that it gets fixed before they start producing and shipping the figure. I'm worried that it's already being produced at the factories with the wrong paint apps and it's too late to fix. :(

Well I hope it gets fixed for you but I would not count on it! They have let so much roll out with so many errors.

Hi Shabby_Blue, I've already emailed Chris Hillseth at GGLTD customer support, on 9th July 2015 - with the same image and a short note outlining my issues with the piece.
Stating that I could (try to) fix it myself, but that for $80usd (+$51.55usd shipping to UK +Import Tax of 20gbp) I shouldn't have to.
He has not replied or even acknowledged receipt of my message as yet, which to be fair to the man, is not like him.

As soon as I spotted it I put the email together with pictures, because from past experience, there is no use whining about it after the fact. So I tried to get it highlighted fast.
I have no idea what the due date for this figure was/ is - does anyone here know?
They've had almost half a month to start fixes, since I informed them of it - but they're very unlikely to notify me of any changes, as a member of the public.

Their silence makes me think it is likely too late and as you've predicted, the units are already produced.
From a personal perspective, being ignored by GGLTD's customer service, makes me feel as though they've flipped me the bird...(shown me the finger).

As much as I loved this figure as a kid, the paint app really bothers me.
The more I think about the paint error as an adult; I'm tempted to drop it from my jumbo collection.

Not sure about the original date but I noticed Entertainment Earth updated their product page to say October.

I relayed the info about the paint error to Dan Pickett at Actionfigureinsider.com since he has a direct contact with someone at Gentle Giant. He later responded back saying "They caught the error too and it will be correct when the figure is released." So that's a relief. I guess we just wait and see now and hope GG is true to their word.

I hope this is fixed and the figure turns out great. This was the only jumbo Leia figure I planned on buying.

I knew they'd put her in an IG-88 clamshell, looks really good.

I appreciate the close-up of that leg... glad they made good on their promise to fix it.

Are you happy with it?

Such a great figure. Looking forward to seeing some out-of-the-packet pics. I'm dying to know if the helmet is squishy like the original ;)

I really like the way this figure turned out. Looks great. I don't have the funds to pick her up right now but she's definitely my next jumbo purchase.

How's the removable helmet? Not too tight or too loose?

A little more snug than I expected but no problems.

Just had mine delivered from BBTS. Best deal I could get since GG sold out.

She looks great. Looking forward to displaying her next to Mr Crumb when he arrives.

Worth grabbing imo.

I just had this fine lady arrive today. I was able to get it directly from Gentle Giant too.

Long story short:

I had a $30 off code as a PG Member to use and wanted to order the Luke Bespin Jumbo, but the website wouldn't add the discount to it. So, I called customer service, only to be told it was sold out and the website needed updating. I asked what they had in stock and was told Leia Boushh was available. I instantly said I'll take it since the website showed out of stock. Used the discount code and reward points and was able to snag her for $26 before shipping.

I'd say that is a great deal for a really impressive figure.

Unfortunately the price is now at $78.

Great price - it's a fantastic jumbo - they did not disappoint with this figure. Good packaging, well designed layout in the bubble.
As other people have said this figure was the very first Kenner to come with a removable helmet and it still makes me smile 33 years later.

Got mine last week from ForbiddenPlanet.com - the last one for 49.99 with 5.50 UK shipping.
They're still on ebay for about twice that price - at the higher end. Some are around 60-70 gbp.

I was quite harsh on the SDCC Luke packaging choice, mainly becaue this one turned out so well. GGLTD have got no excuses for dropping the ball if they can do everything this well for Boushh. All Jumbo figures should be this good from start to finish, every stage.
