Product Backstory
The beautiful Princess Leia Organa is a symbol of diplomacy, strength, and hope within the Rebel Alliance. While serving as the youngest member of the Imperial Senate, Princess Leia secretly leads the struggling Rebellion in their mission to overthrow the Galactic Empire. Even after being captured and forced to witness the destruction of her homeworld, Leia continues to place her dedication to the Alliance above her own personal needs and safety.

Princess Leia 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 landed in an asteroid field so that its crew could repair the vessel. But Darth Vader 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 its administrator, Lando Calrissian.

Leia eventually traced the carbonite encased Han Solo to Jabba the Hutt's palace on Tatooine, where Boba Fett delivered him to collect on the bounty offered by the great crime lord. Leia participated in Luke's plan to free the captured Solo from the clutches of the vile gangster, disguising herself as Boushh, an Ubese bounty hunter, and infiltrating the palace to free Solo from his carbonite imprisonment. Jabba and his minions uncovered the plot to free Han Solo, and with Leia's true identity revealed, Jabba ordered the princess to be chained and clothed in a scant golden bikini. Leia bravely faced her captivity and Jabba's vile presence, secure in the knowledge that soon enough Luke would arrive, and the full plan for Han's rescue could unfold. Leia repaid the gangster by throttling the Hutt with the very chain that bound her, strangling Jabba and ending his cruel reign.
