Leia in Combat Poncho Painted Hardcopy -Pink Poncho
Fully painted hardcopy figures are real treasures of the prototype collecting hobby. Not only are they completely hand-made and meticulously painted, they exhibit a much greater level of detail than do standard plastic action figures. As they were only made for purposes such as promotional photographing or display at an industry show like Toy Fair, very few examples of each figure were created. And, of course, even fewer survived.

This piece is a painted hardcopy of the Leia in Combat Poncho figure. Of course, the accessories are what really make it stand out. Most notably, the poncho is pink rather than camoflauged. Additionally, the belt/holster, which is black on the released figure, is here made of brown rubber.
