Comments: After Han Solo's capture at Cloud City, the carbonite-encased Corellian is taken by bounty hunter Boba Fett to the desert palace of Jabba the Hutt, where he is hung upon the wall as a living trophy. Unwilling to give up on Han, Princess Leia and her friends begin plans for a daring rescue. While Lando infiltrates the crime lord's ranks in disguise as a guard and Luke Skywalker sends the droids to the Hutt as "gifts," the princess adopts the persona of an Ubese tracker named Boushh and travels to Tatooine in disguise, with Chewbacca as her apparent prisoner.

Gaining an audience with Jabba the Hutt and still disguised beneath the alien helmet, Leia offers Chewbacca in exchange for a hefty reward. Overconfident and greedy, the Hutt forgets prudence in his excitement over the Wookiee's capture. He welcomes the bounty hunter Boushh into his den and, after some spirited haggling involving a thermal detonator, agrees to pay a respectable fee, ignorant of the threat he has just admitted.

With all the pieces in place, Leia now makes her move to free Han. Under the cover of darkness, she sneaks through the Hutt's audience chamber and activates the thaw cycle on the smuggler's wall-mounted carbonite block, catching Han as he pitches forward, out of the icy prison. Cradling her prone love, Leia removes her helmet and reveals her identity to Han, but a rumbling laugh from behind Jabba's curtain cuts short their reunion and any hope of immediate escape...

Points of Interest:

  • The Sideshow Exclusive version of the 12-inch Leia as Boushh includes a unique accessory available nowhere else, another fine weapon from Boushh's gear - a Ubese blaster pistol. This fierce weapon was a staple in the bounty hunter's arsenal, small enough to conceal and smuggle into nearly any situation, but powerful enough to take down quarry with a single shot.

    Next September marks the twentieth anniversary of Hasbro's Kenner The Power Of The Force action figure collection. The line introduced a new generation of children to the wonderful world of Star Wars toys and ushered in the modern collectibles we all enjoy today. Our ever-inquisitive Probe Droid is actively searching all corners of the galaxy to find out if there is interest in products that commemorate this very significant 1995 release.
    I'd be into a Hasbro The Lost Line style assortment
    I'd love to see Gentle Giant make a Jumbo Kenner 1995 Luke Skywalker
    I'm behind both of these ideas!
    I got started in 1995, but I have no interest in such a concept.
    It isn't for me.
