It was an ESB mini-bust day today. Along with my Hoth Luke, Leia also arrived. Mynock Hunt Leia is the limited version of the standard ESB Hoth Leia bust. The difference is that she comes wearing the breathing mask which cannot be removed.

This bust is beautiful. The detailing overall on the piece is amazing. Once again they hit the ball out of the park with showcasing the different fabrics from Leia’s leather gloves to her puffy vest. They did a nice job of weathering the fabric w/ light brown paint to give her a more lifelike appearance, rather than just having it all be flat and one color. Her hair is also beautifully carved to showcase depth in her strands and braid.

The mask is pretty cool, I touched it and expected it to be acrylic but it’s not. I believe that it’s made using the same clear materials that GG uses to make the spirit versions of the busts. The sculpting on the face is lovely as well – it’s one of the better sculpted facial representations that I’ve seen of Leia. Well done Gentle Giant!
