Princess Leia: Hero of Yavin Mini-Bust

I love the idea & design of this but who is it? I just can't see Carrie at all. Wish they would have gone with a smiling portrait instead because that's how I remember her in this scene
Hope they get rid of those ugly arm seams as well & they are just a prototype byproduct. Forbidden Planet is asking for 130 over here!

Sorry for the lack of photos but I am on my PS4 as my comp is broken

So is that the long lost medal that was meant for Chewie? Could they not fit it around his neck?

What are they gonna do for the Chewbacca: Hero of Yavin Mini-bust? Him sulking?

With very few exceptions Gentle Giant's human faces on those busts are all a miss.

They seem to do OK on people who are no longer with us like the ANH Obi-Wan &Grand Moff Tarkin .

Poor Carrie never got an easy ride with GG. The Boushh MB is probably the best representation of her, as well as being an all around great MB . ANH Leia is just GHASTLY!!I mean, seriously?? Jabba's Prisoner._.No. Hoth Leia looks great from some angles but from others she looks like she is 20 years older than what she should be. Best to go with Mynock Hunt version
Clone Wars Obi-Wan statue must be their biggest failure. At least they kinda redeemed themselves with the MB. Still looks like Ewan with a fake beard stuck on him though
