To commemorate a major milestone, Hasbro created The Black Series 40th Anniversary collection. The line, which was revealed in their showroom at the 2017 International Toy Fair, the 40th Anniversary collection features 6-inch action figures based on the ones originally released by Kenner in 1978. The first wave in this special set began hitting shelves at the end of March, 2017 and included Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Ben (Obi-Wan) Kenobi, and Artoo-Detoo (R2-D2).
This Princess Leia Organa action figure is the only one released in the first wave of 40th Anniversary to stand apart from its previously released counterpart. While the switch over can only be found on the late releases of the 2016 The Black Series 30 Princess Leia Organa that came before it, every Leia action figure released on the 40th Anniversary card features the revised portrait.
