'You're Going to Regret This' - Princess Leia vs Jabba the Hutt by Sideshow Collectibles

Princess Leia Organa was one of the commanding members of Echo Base on the frozen planet Hoth. When the Imperials attacked Hoth, Leia took the initiative and acted in a number of command roles, ordering the evacuation of the base. Leia's access to her own escape transport was cut off, but she managed to escape in Han Solo's Millennium Falcon. Evading Imperial pursuit, the Falcon traveled to a seeming sanctuary in Cloud City, where Han's friend Lando Calrissian ruled the skies. But Darth Vader struck a deal with Calrissian, captured Han Solo, and Leia was forced to watch as the Dark Lord froze him in carbonite and handed him over to the bounty hunter, Boba Fett. Leia escaped Cloud City with the aid of the guilt-stricken Lando, and reunited with Luke and the Rebel forces, began to plot to rescue Han.

The Rebels tracked Boba Fett as the bounty hunter delivered Han's carbon-frozen form to Jabba the Hutt. Leia participated in Luke's plan to free the captured Solo from the clutches of the vile gangster, posing as Boushh, an Ubese bounty hunter, and infiltrating the palace to free Solo from his carbonite imprisonment. Their rescue attempt failed when Leia's identity was revealed. Attempting to intimidate Jabba into releasing her, Leia threatened, "We have very powerful friends. You're going to regret this." But Jabba only scoffed at her warning and took her as his slave, chained and clad in a scant golden bikini.

When Luke Skywalker arrives to free Leia, Han and Chewbacca, the rescue attempt goes awry, leading to a dangerous scuffle aboard Jabba the Hutt's sail barge. The fray provides just the distraction Leia has been waiting for and with Jabba's attention on the fight, Leia fulfills her threat by strangling Jabba with the very chain that bound her as the Rebels make their escape.

You couldn't stop me from attending!
I'll thinking about it...
I'm waiting for more news before I decide.
I can't get involved! I've got work to do!
That's your uncle talking.
Nope. I want to but I can't make it work.
No way! Massively cool social events aren't my cup of tea.
